It would be my 1960's Premier Royal Ace.
I haven't played it in years, simply as the snare wires are mostly broken and no one makes replacements- not even Premier!!!
Would love to have it back in working order. It's mostly sat in a case for nearly ten years.
I think mine is similar. Superstar Custom all birch; love the kit, hate the snare.Tama Superstar 5" that came with a kit. The kit is good, but the snare is hard to get a good sound from. Edges, heads and everything is good, as far as I know, but still sound plain bad. It lives in its case while I play my trusty Supraphonic.
Maybe I'm just not where you are yet. My tastes change without warning. And I like the sound, like on all the James Brown stuff for example.Interesting, Larry. For years I only owned deeper drums, but lately I've really enjoyed playing the 5" deep snare.
