Rare as hens teeth this one!

1960's Premier 18x12", 12x8", 14x14" in original (barely faded!) white marine pearl. 3-ply birch shells with beech reinforcing rings.

The kit has freshly been restored in my workshop and fitted out with brand new Remo heads (Coated Ambassador's all round, reso and batter, with a Fiberskyn Ambassador reso on the kick), and comes with original tom holder, floor tom legs, bass drum spurs and dampers.

The kit came to me a few years ago as an 18" and 12". In the Premier 1965 catalog (as shown), this configuration is sold as a 'C52' outfit, which was an 18" bass drum and matching 12" tom. The kit never would have come with a floor. This was also common for jazz outfits made by American brands, particularly Gretsch, Leedy and Slingerland. I spent years hunting down a matching 14" floor and this one matches perfectly. The badge is from the late 60's but the hoops match and of course, the shells are all 3-ply birch. 

The 12" tom is 'pre-international' sized, which can only take Remo 'pre-international' heads, which any good drum shop should stock, if not they can order in. (Or email me, as I also stock them!)

Nothing to report other than a small (I suspect) cigarette burn behind the 12" tom mount. This can barely be seen when set up though as the reso side hoop hides it and it's also behind the tom mount.
