Default Mystery drums

Hello all, first time posting on this.
Bought these drums a while ago as a quick buy. These are some custom finished drums where the wrap has been taken off and dyed(?) anyway, I'm not sure about the make or model of these drums but seeing the small marking on the hole on the kick drum I though it may be a Tama set. I lost the guys number who I bought them off so I can't ask. Any help would be great. Cheers.

Ps. Images are too big to upload to the forum. If anyone could help me, email me at coreybennett9998@gmail.com

Cheers

Corey

Premier Cabria. Probably "APK" or equivalent, if they had wrap on them. Cabria were Premier's APAC-sourced line in the 90s and Oughties.

They're pretty fine drums. I had a set of XPK Cabrias until a month ago and really, really liked them.

Edited to add:

Here's a picture of one of my Cabrias so you can see the badge. Same shape as the outline you posted. The lugs are the same casting, too, though Premier were not the only maker to use that rather generic casting.

No, I think they're wing-badge Cabrias. ;-)

Before you dismiss that as too flippant, read on.

Premier used several types of badge on Cabrias, as well as lots of different nomenclature. It's confusing.

There have been lots of different XPK and APK in the Premier lineup, before, during, and after Cabria. To make matters worse, the nomenclature was inconsistently applied. There were several years during the Cabria era where the difference between Cabria lines was in the shell finish and the color of the badge (bronze, silver, or gold).

The one thing which *has* been pretty consistent over the years is finish: XPK was/is lacquer, and APK was/is wrap.

So your drums are Premier Cabria, possibly also called "APK," as in "Premier Cabria APK." Or at one time they bore a bronze badge.

Clear as mud? ;-)
