That's the first I've heard of any of Nicko's kits being having Asian-made shells, and the first I've heard of them recycling kits with new wraps.The gentleman who owns Premier and is now the sole director, Ken Tonkin, has owned it for the better part of a decade. During the early part of Tonkin's ownership Keith Keogh, who is the builder behind BDC was running KD Drums, based in Stockport near Manchester. When Premier moved all of their manufacturing to Taiwan they decided that they wanted a more bespoke and British type offering and basically subsumed KD drums, setting them up in a factory just north of Manchester with snares introduced in 2012 and kits and in time for the 2013 catalogue. All the One series/later Modern Classic drums and kits are fundamentally KD Drums builds with a different badge.
However as I understand it (happy to be corrected re this) Nicko's last couple of Premier kits were Taiwanese shells, with outsourced wraps from a UK designer (this continued with the Sonor and BDC kits), other than his signature sycamore snare which he'd worked with Keith on. At least one of these kits was recycled with new wraps for a different tour. He's on record as wanting to use British drums if possible so I suspect Sonor was always just a holding exercise until BDC had enough support and distribution to properly support him on tour.
Keith and co parted ways with Premier after a relatively short period and formed BDC in late 2015 with financial backing from a successful UK comedian called Al Murray. Premier still just about exists, producing marching gear and orchestral stuff in small quantities, though many pipe bands and UK military bands that for decades used Prem stuff have now moved to BDC too. They haven't produced kits in any real number since 2015 and haven't had kit distribution in any major market since a similar time.
Nicko's always said he left Premier because they stopped British product and he wanted a British-made kit, so I doubt he would have settled for an Asian-made kit even for just a couple years.
I also know for a fact that the wrapped premier kits from the 2006-07, 2008-09, and 2010-11 tours still exist - and the last tour with Premier was 2012-14, so I highly doubt they recycled any kits with new wraps.
