    Great forum. I've been lurking for a while and happy to say I've found some great information on this site. I've tried to update my profile but doesn't appear my information has been saved. Might be the settings on my iPad. I'll try later on my desktop computer. Anyway, I currently play two different Premier Projector series acoustic sets. My band has an opportunity to pick up a regular gig provided all members plug directly into the house PA. That's why I'm here. I need to put together an E kit. Questions will follow in the "products" forum if that's appropriate. Be gentle, please! Thanks...Kim

    Welcome to the asylum Kim. All your prayers will be answered here. Did not know Premier were that available in the states. I played them for 25+ years over here (UK).

          Well I've failed in my attempt to post a few pics from gigging. Maybe I'm not ready to get into electronic drumming!

              You say that K but I'm still struggling. Come to that everything is a struggle. I have to check that I've got a pulse before I get out of bed in the morning.

                  Make sure you breath in before every kick.

                        Very cool. Welcome to the forum. I have a Premier 20 inch mahogany bass drum with gray shimmer wrap circa 1970. I have been looking for some matching tom for some time.

                          Jimorlando, My first premier kit was also grey shimmer, in pre-international dimensions (4 piece). I keep it from age 15-52. Letting it go was a bad, bad decision on my part.

                            I only have the base drum and it is difficult to find matching toms. Even when you find one it is usually in the UK and the shipping is very expensive.
