    Default My New Find???????

    I was at a local drum shop last weekend called Donn Bennett Drum Studio, and first of all it was simply breathtaking, for instance he had the original 1st drumset used on the Beatles 1st tour, and on top of that it was signed by all four members, I must have starred at that kit for 30 min, he also had one of Buddy Rich's kits up there signed by the man himself and a plaque also signed, also a kit with Gene Krupa signed, and the list seriously just goes on, hundreds of signed custom snare drums from the artist, it was not only a drum shop but an amazing museum.

    Anyway I stumbled upon this Premier snare drum, it's a 14x7, tapped on it a bit and instantly fell in love with the sound(it will need some new hoops, but other than that, flawless). Donn was actually there, so I asked him about the snare drum, because I am not at all familiar with Premier, but apparently they are a European drum company, and the snare drum I was looking at is a vintage 1970 and a rare one at that apparently. Well he started getting a worried look on his face, so I asked is there something wrong? and he asked for the snare drum, he glanced at the price and then really got worried, it was priced at only $56, so he preceded to tell me, I have a new associate, and we just got this snare in a few days ago, the price on this snare drum is horribly wrong, I would have price it at $225 or more, but I haven't even seen this snare drum or had a chance to look it over, so I instantly got bummed, but he was quick to say, but that is what's on the price tag, so that is what you pay, and I will have a talk with my new associate, so I said are you sure, and he said absolutely, I started grinning from ear to ear.

    Now I realize some of you may think this might be some selling tacktick, but I assure you he was very genuine, and I am certain it was not, I guess you just needed to be there.

    I don't know if any of you are familiar with Premier snare drums, but if you have any additional information about this snare, I would love to have.
