LOL! Sorry. I was thinking you were going to slather that Bees Wax all over the inside of the shell.
These are late 90’s XPK. Birch Eucalyptus Birch.
very good drums.
They look like Yamaha to me...
Are you referring to the bass drum claws? They were on the drum when I bought it and I assumed they were were original Premier claws but I can’t say for sure. I can say they work just fine.
Cheers, I’ve looked into this and I think you might be right! Was sold to me as a 90’s APK and matched the badge in the 1988 catalogue...but 80’s works for me; it’s in amazing shape!!That's a mid 80's drum from lugs and badge, a 1006 from the original version of the APK, which had split speedboat lugs. Nice drums.
Never knew Yamaha owned Premier But if that happened in the 80s or 90s I was out of drumming at that time.They are the originals, they look like Yamaha ones as they first appeared when Yamaha owned Premier. A lot (though by no means all) of the kit hardware was derived from Yamaha stuff.
That's a Late 80's drum.That's a mid 80's drum from lugs and badge, a 1006 from the original version of the APK, which had split speedboat lugs. Nice drums.
I’m sure there’s a thread on here about Yamaha players having to contend with having smaller nuts? ?ocgvictoria,
Yes, for a few years, Premier was aligned with Yamaha. Late 80's - (very) early 90's, IIRC.
Yamaha parts aren't an exact match, but it might be worth a shot.
