Premier Drums At NAMM 2012

This year marked the return of Premier drums to the NAMM Show, as well as to the U.S. market, where a couple false starts in recent years had left a sense of doubt about the historic British drum brand. But for the first time in a long time, it felt as if Premier has the wind at its back, with an all-new line of British-made custom snare drums called the Aviator Series. Plus we took a look at the revived Genista drum kit line, the new Premier Elite Series, and two different Nicko McBrain Spirit Of Maiden drum sets.
