  • 100 dollar Yamaha kit

    I Scored these for 100 bucks, they were in pretty ruff shape and were covered in paint over spray. After a few hours of elbow grease they cleaned up fairly nice.

      Power V Special , I think these were made in England in the Premier factory some time in the early 90s

          They look pretty rough in the first pic. Nice work!

            Yamaha owned Premier at the time. They were introduced in 1992 and featured 9 ply kicks and 6 ply toms made of mahogany/poplar. In '93 they were redesigned with high tension lugs, pro tom holders, birch/mahogany bass drum hoops and mahogany/basswood shells.

              At first glance I thought that was just dust covering wrap .. but you said it was paint over spray

              Anyway the before and after pic are night and day .. they look great now! .. Drums match your ride I see ..

                The finish is a wrap called Red Marble.
