I used a combo of RA and GA (both SOB Solid Black) nothing differed in sound to my ears.

I think the RA (lacquered) and GA (wrapped) were made from1981 to 85. In 1985 they stopped making the GA series and the RA was replaced with the RC-RF model (RF for power depth drums). Same drums as RA but different bearing edges.

Yamaha owned Premier Drums from 1987 to 1995. I heard that they had manufactured some Yamaha drums in the Premier factory. You might be looking a one of those right now.
