  • What’re these 16” premier snare wires from?

    I’ve been going through all my parts and found these 16.5” 24 strand premier wires. Are these from one of those drums with the long bridge?

    Either something with a flo-beam parallel snare mech (Royal Ace, 2000 etc.) or one of the Royal Scot Marching snares. The wire length varied between the 2 so you'd be better off asking an expert. Theres a couple of very useful Premier Facebook groups, and a great guy to go to is Mike at Blenheim Drums who knows vintage Premier gear inside out.
    More drums than you can shake a stick at...

      They are from a Premier model 2000. The Royal Ace clips on with no screw holes at all.
