Hi,

I proudly own a Premier 2000 snare drum with the Flobeam parallel strainer.
A light weight snare drum (Aluminium body), but still with a great sound. I just love it!

As far as I heard often, this snare drum was a legend in the 70s and was played by many famous drummers. But ...

WHO were these drummers? I can't find a list of them anywhere ????
On which songs this snare drum can be heard?

Is someone here who has knowledge about it?

Thanks for your attention!

Greetings - R.a.l.f.

The Late Great COZY POWELL did play Premier Drums in the 60's & 70's . He switched over LUDWIG's When he was with Blackmore's Rainbow around 1976.
I have a seen a B&W photo years ago of him with a Premier set up and I rembered he
used the premier 252 pedals, because I went out & bought one!

Best
