I bought these Premier "Projectors" back in 1992, have used them for many gigs and studio sessions, and they look almost new. They are all birch drums, in a really nice lacquer deep blue finish, and actually have 7 pieces in total. I remember the R.I.M.S. hoops were sort of new when I got them. Definitely a great sounding kit, built to last. I recently acquired a Signia 14x14 floor tom, in the same finish, as an add-on, shown in this photo.
