Premier Snare Drum

It isn't that much vintage. Badge indicates it's an Asian import because it'doesn't say Made or Built in England. If a magnet sticks to it then it's just a very generic student level imported steel snare. Hundreds of them for sale everywhere. If a magnet doesn't stick then it's a better brass snare, but still an import.

Looks like a Premier 2000 . Aluminum shell.
A pretty decent drum.
I thinks it's a 90's one, judging by the stock head.
Edit. The premier 2000 has die cast hoops, this one maybe the snare that came with 90's APK fusion.

Right. The magnet test will reveal. If magnet doesn't stick then may be an aluminum shell. Better than steel.

I always look for stock heads and condition of head. If stick head and not much wear then that means drum wasn't played that much. Maybe a young kid's drum and they never got into laying so it sat around mostly unused. But if magnet sticks then not much hear a cheap Asian steel drum. Hoping for OP that magnet falls off !!!!
