I'd love to grab these, but it says local pickup only.

Don't forget that Yamaha/Premier had a shared period together as well, but I thought the stuff they did was pretty decent.

I am a fan of the 90s era Premier stuff, but earlier than that and I get confused about what I'm looking at -- I don't know the telltales of different shell series. I still would like to find one of those really great deals on a Genista or a Signia set, but all the great deals seem to be in the UK.
Why? Pretty straight forward with the vintage stuff, 60’s 70’s

Exactly like my kit but this looks to be a 24 bass with 13” and 14” toms and 14”,16”,18” floor toms. They are more beautiful in person, trust me!

Those are stunning! Wish I could get 'em. What are they, 24/12/13/10x14/14//16/18? I have same kit in Resonators, same color 22/13/10x14/16, w/brushed aluminum HiFi.

They look like they weren't gigged out. The old-school fibreboard cases (my favorite) even look unmarked.

I like this. It reminds me of the rare late 80's Resonator finishes.

I do like the look of these Elites...
"A blended shell comprised of 2-ply North American birch and 2-ply North American maple, beech support rings and a 3mm undersized tom diameter. The Elite’s new thin shell construction, at 4.8mm thick, relays every nuance of your live performance." Also, there seems to be a full range of sizes available (see below pics)

The walnut snare they released is beautiful and it's nice to see they chose to have it made in the UK. But the ~ $1500 price is a little nuts. You can buy a very nice set of Signias for that kind of money.
