PREMIER ONE SERIES 'THE HACKNEY' 14 X 7 SNARE DRUM, ONE OF A KIND, MAN MADE TIGER GREY WOOD VENEER (PRE-LOVED / EX-ARTIST SNARE)
Here we have something incredibly unique and totally one of a kind. The Premier One Series Drums where all built as one off - one of a kind sets as the 101 badge suggests referring to serial no. 01 for each drum produced. All the One drums are named after a town, city or place of interest in the UK, this one is named 'The Hackney" which is where the Artist who the snare was made for originates from. This is a totally hand made premium british built kit and was designed and built under the watchful eye of Master Drum Builder Keith Keough who has since gone on to form the incredible British Drum Company.
The snare is dated 1st June 2014 so it is one of the later drums from the series, the core shell on this is Birch, there is a Mahogany Inlay and the outer veneer is a man made grey wood horizontal tiger stripe veneer which looks and feels absolutely incredible. The snare features the Premier Elite Lug.
The One Series along with many of Premiers other top of the line English built drums is an absolutely breath taking instrument, no attention to detail has been spared, tonally this snare reminds me of the Genista and Recording Custom (another kit that was built by Premier for a while in England) but the Mahogany delivers a slightly darker and more coloured tone.
If you are looking for a drum that will stand out, be versatile and be totally unique this certainly could be the one for you. Like much of the English Built Premier this snare can now only accrue in value going forwards if well looked after. It will tell a very unique story about a short but incredibly glorious period of drum building towards the end of Premiers UK drum building legacy.
