They also came with two Roto Tom‘s which I was excited about because they’re 16 and 18 inch… But my excitement quickly dwindled when I saw that the inner frames were missing for some reason

see how that works?
It's just the node and Claw (and trod) that are gold.

those FT brackets are Premier btw.
(or yamaha)

Nah Stu I think I nailed it. : DL
These are the same drums from the same seller.
Two of the FT brackets are different than the rest, and look generic to me.

"I'm waiting to hear about them Especially that PAISTE"

and what is a Mobile Pawn? At First I thought it was a Pawn that drove around and dealt out of a Truck but. I think "It's an APP" LOLOL

I don’t know. I couldn’t get this lady to reply, and I saw the mobile pawn thing on her screenshot, so I reached out to them, but got no reply
I was hoping to see a paiste cymbal, because there’s one in the pics…. But I didn’t get one

As Premier already made real 18x14 bass drums, I think its a diy conversion from an 18x16 btw.
The badges are located at spots Premier would never place them.
Think it is Factory. That's exactly where the badge and plaque and mount are on BBunks drum

Are we looking to the same drum? :-D

They are placed interchanged and on different locations.

The ft t rods are not Yamaha, but could be 90’s Premier as they do look close to those t tods.
Premier/Yamaha interchanged had a relationship/shared some hardware those years.
(I have the same curved S t handle on my Premier (Yamaha) stands from my 1997 75th XPK set)

You're right. Musiqman good eye!
The badge/plaque positions are flipped on Bunks drum. I still think it's a factory 16X18.

Reverb 22"



Bunk's 16X18

who would do that - go thru that- . Better chance is it's factory Signia Anni 16X18 bass drum.

I think you have it nailed Way to go thxs
Experiment with the tuning wide open etc with bass it may turn out to be a set if you have the room to stay with you etc

I have a friend who has one of these Signia wood hooped kits, it sounds better every year. He's had it since new. The snare is one of the best drums I've ever played. I bought a blonde wood hooped Signia snare later but it didn't have the magic of his drum. other than the mounted 14 and 16 and a kick that is maybe too deep for 2021 fashion, it's a work of art.

There was a time Yamaha owned Premier for a better spread in Europe (I would say, Premoiers best modern era, it went downards quickly after they were sold by Yamaha)

The t rods from yamaha were slightly different (just like the other hardware there were some small things that distinguised one from eachother).

Although the t rods from yamaha were slightly different
you do know Yamaha had a large stake in the Premier company the Genista/Signia/ A/Xpk years.
All (many) the stands were rebadged Yamaha models

Well… this bass drum is definitely NOT made by premier. Looks like someone took his original shell, stripped it, tossed two long lugs in a drawer… and bolted 8 of them to this thing after giving it a sub-par finish job.
The chrome air hole grommet looked non original and that was what made me yank the heads off…
The work is not the best…

what's the inside of the toms -other drums look like.

the chrome air grommet looks like the one here on the 22"?
~~
Is it an 18X18 shell? or 16X18.
