From time to time, I've been tempted by one or another Premier kit. This may be an odd question, but among others, one consideration has been head sizes. Being of european origin, I'm interested to know if drums / heads are metric or english dimensioned.

A little enlightenment please...

Hey Thumper there are plenty of Premier aficionados on this forum so they will be better informed than me but I have read that Premier made the move to standard shell sizes around 1968.
Pre-International heads are still available as a special order from Remo but they can be tricky to locate outside of the UK.
Hope this helps, Andrew
