I’d call it a fair price for sure. What would a comparable US, German etc made kit cost? A whole lot more. The discount is coming from the fact that Premier doesn’t have the cache it once did, not because the they don’t make quality gear.
Probably 1998 - small lugs, rims mounts. I have the same kit from 1997 - still my main gigging kit. Birch-eucalyptus-birch shells. Great ‘modern’ sound, deep, punchy birch tone. Better shells than the exports and stage customs from that era.
These are good drums with horrible resale value. I've never played a Premier snare that I've liked, and that rack tom is a little too deep for my liking. UK-made are the best in the Premier line, but buy them to play, not to flip and try to make anything on them. That's a very fair price on them, but you'll never sell them for more than that if you choose to sell them yourself at some point.
I have an outstanding English-made Premier XPK kit. If the XPK you are looking at is made in England then it's worth a look.
British-made kits and snares have good resale value. They're not appreciating, but not losing value. If you turn them in a year you'd get your money back.
I didn't buy the matching snare because I like snares with built-in mufflers. The snare in pics is a somewhat rare Premier HiFi 10 lug aluminum snare, which is comparable to a Ludwig Acro or Supra. It's for sale right now on Reverb. I like it a lot and have gigged with it, but I'm not really a collector and I already have a perfectly nice Acro.
My XPK kit sounds great, and I'm very picky. The hardware is first-rate. Shells are gorgeous and beautifully made. This kit is so nice, I just use it for practice. I generally gig with a Ludwig Classic Maple.
If in excellent condition AND made in England then it's a great deal. A steal. If condition is just so-so then it's a good price if made in UK. If not British made then I'd pass no matter the condition.
I have a set of early 90's XPKs / birch shells. Great sounding kit. I use it in one of my band practice spaces.. only because the hardware is not my 'go to' for gigging. It's a bit creaky and slower to setup/tear down than say Yamaha, Mapex, Sonor or other more modern kits - which are a breeze.
