Looks like a premier soundwave, which was made in that era but the lugs don't look quite right. Had an `81 model (shoulda kept it) and the lugs were different to the ones shown in the pic. Soundwave were the same as Elite (which along with resonator were the top-line models of this era), just with single lugs instead of the hi-tension and flanged hoops instead of die cast. Shells and hardware otherwise the same.Are these Royale-level, or the real deal?
I have a 1979 3 piece Premier drum kit for sale. The finish is called bronze silk and the drums...detroit.craigslist.org
They kinda look like killers.
The shells are legit premier judging by the interior photo, however the lugs, bass drum hoops are aftermarket. Been hot-rodded I reckon, worth asking why??
Royale were made from Luan and didn't have the re-rings or the gull-wing spurs, otherwise looked very similar to the Soundwave line.
