  • The Drum Kit - Vintage 1963 Premier Outfits 54 kit

    thedrumkit

    The 1963 Vintage Premier Outfits 54 kit is a classic 60s sounding kit with a white marine pearl finish. It comprises a 20" x 14" Bass Drum, a 14" x 5.5" snare drum, a wonderfully deep 16" x 16" floor tom and a 12" x 8" rack tom. The cymbals used were 14" Zildjian New Beat Hi-Hats, a 22" Zildjian K Custom Medium Ride and two Zildjian Crashes - an 18" K Dark Thin Crash and a 16" vintage Cie Crash.

    Renowned for their shells and excellent chrome work, Premier Drums were at the forefront of the British drum manufacturing industry in the 1960s; the best British-made drum kit one could own was made by Premier. Many top players of the time would use Premier equipment, including Keith Moon and Ringo Starr who is famously pictured playing a B54 Premier kit (the same as our kit but with a larger 22" bass drum) with the Beatles in the early 1960s. This example is available in Miloco's The Pool and consists of factory issue sizes and is fitted with Pre International Remo Coated Ambassador heads. The kit works well at different tuning pitches, whether required for jazz tones or deeper rock-orientated numbers. To get a 1960s drum sound first you must start with a 1960s kit - and here it is.
