that's why I'm only using snare and boom stands :twisted:ash":2nxsoc3j said:I would agree that the 6000 series cymbal and snare stands are great, although the kick and hi-hat pedals Premier produce do need some work. From what I was told at the factory they should be addressing that problem next year.
Sounds like they are 'pre-international' which would make them pre-1967. Premier until this time, made their drums to their own 'non international' diameters - 12" = 11 7/8ths, 16" = 16 1/4" and 20" = 19 3/4". Remo still make heads that fit in coated ambassador and clear pinstripe, the labels are marled 'Premier' to distinguish them from international size heads.quikstang2":ud8steqg said:I've got some vintage Premiers. I'm told they're international sized pre-1973 beech wood 4-piece. I'm in the middle of restoring and upgrading them. Too many details to list, but I'll keep everyone posted.
Bigd11, if you ever get a chance would you mind asking Premier exactly what diameter, depth and anything else about them that would be good to know?
I've asked tons of experts and emailed Premier and I haven't gotten any answers. I tried measuring them but they aren't metric or American sized.
