Default Help me identify these Premier Drums

Hi,

So I am interested in buying a drumset from someone, and they gave me these pictures. They know that they are the Premier line of drums, but they don't know which model - ie, Signia, XPK, Artist, Maple Classic, etc. As far as I know, Premier doesn't particularly mark their drums that clearly, but I may be wrong.

Here is some information that may (or may not) be useful:

He said they might be maple, but he doesn't really know. He also said they might be the Premier line of drums (ie Premier's Premier line of drums), but he said he wasn't sure about that either. He also said that the drums are about three years old, but again, he's not entirely sure (bought them used).

Does anyone have any idea what they could be? I am not at all an expert, and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!

Hey,

Thanks for the reply!! How can you tell they are Genistas? The lugs look different, but I'm not sure what that means.

Thanks in advance for your help

Could be an optical illusion.

At least you can rest assured in knowing you have a set of the best bass drum spurs ever produced by any company.

Genistas had roundish lugs. Here are my 91 XPK's The one's you have use lugs similar to the Artist series, which is more current, which makes sense being 3-5 years old.

Hey,

Thanks again for the info!! But I think the Artist series have that printed on their logos. Like, instead of a "P" the Artist Series are labeled "Premier Artist Series".

Is that correct? I just saw a couple of pictures but it doesn't mean it's universally correct.

It looks like an XPK set to me. I own both XPK and the more recent Artist Series.

Your looks like this (KPX):


Not this (Artist Series):
