View Full Version : Any Premier Cabria drummers out there? (Or anyone who has played on one)

I just bought a Premier Cabria second hand off someone from work who advertised it. It has hardly been played at all, and was only like 3 months old when I bought it.
I believe the original owner bought it around November 06, so I am tipping that it's not the newest Cabria that was recently released.

I am wondering if there is anyway to find out the exact cabria make and model of my kit???
There seems to be no other Label on the kit then 'Premier Cabria' badge. I am not sure if it's the starndard set, or the exclusive set, weather it's a rock set, jazz set etc. It does however sound very rocky, and for my first kit, I love it.

Does anyone know a good website to buy Premier parts like a 'Bass Beater' as I am after a double sided 'Bass Beater' instead of the sphere shaped one that comes standard with it?

Also I am a little dissapointed with Premier in regards to there Website as they have taken down all the pictures and descriptions of the Older Cabria Series ever since the new Cabria series was released just 1 month ago.
What are people's thought on the CABRIA, and does anyone have pictures of the 'Cabria' symbol on there kit to help me find out which Cabria it is I have?

Other then that, I love my kit.

You can check out my kit and see if you can check the badge, mine is 5 years old. As for the bass beater, I would just buy a new pedal because my last premier tended to make a squeak the even WD 40 (lubricant) couldn't fix.

F***** Jesus mate, what an awesome kit. Seriously you have got me excitied about just buying new things one by one. You are right about my pedal, it does tend to squick a little bit, but for now it will do the job. I've only been playing for 3 months now, and I am getting better and better each day.
Your Cabria looks magnificant, and by the look of it compared to mine, I would say mine is definetly made no earlier then 2005.
I'm probably going to pesker you heaps because you seem to have the drum kit, plus the skills I am aiming for. ha ha

Keep kicking arse mate, I look forward to seeing what else you will add to your already massive kit. As for me, I am still figuring out the names of all the symbols. ha ha.
Cheers.

Did some measurments, and found out that it's a JAZZ 20 Cabria.
Now, When they say Jazz 20, they mean the Bass is 20 inches. It's not he Rock 22 as I first thought, but I am wondering if the drum being called JAZZ 20 will really sound anything different to say a ROCK 22 Cabria?

Just wondering I guess. I can;t complain, for my first kit, I am happy with it.

Mine are the purple ones. I obviously didn't have a choice of colour but I like purple. Racing Green is gorgeous though!
