Re: premier steel snare


Which snare is it? Is it the 4 and-a-half inch deep 2000 with the snare always under tension even when thrown off, or is it the deeper 6-inch with reinforcing bead?

For the 2000, tune the reso higher than the the batter, and tune the batter reasonably high. For the deeper snare, tune the batter and reso about the same, and just touch the internal damper lightly to the batter head to silence the ring. Don't "choke" the snare by straining it excessively- the strainer adjustment should be about the mid position to allow the snare to vibrate freely. For the smooth shell 2000, the snare strainer also has four adjustment screws to alter the height from the head before using the separate lateral strainers. With the snare applied, adjust the levelling screws to a position where the snare is just touching the head when in the playing position (very buzzy), then adjust the strainer knobs on both strainer block mounts antil you obtain the dry crack this drum is renowned for.
Hope this helps.

Hey Bambam -
Do you know where I can get a set of the Premier 12 wire snares for my 2000? Thanks.

Re: premier steel snare


Thanks, Tainojim! Looks like I've found a home here. I'll look around for a replacement using this vid as a guide....BUT, the drum has a peculier two-pin attachment scheme...not a cable, not a ribbon...

I would look around for vintage drum parts. Also "Georges Drum Shop .com" may be able to help you out. Give them a buzz (on the phone ) and tell them I sent you. There may also be some sort of conversion replacement parts that come in a kit.

Perhaps the "Vintage Drum Shop" here in New York City may be able to help.

I'm all out of ideas at the moment.

But it won't hurt to try either. I'm more familiar with Gretsch and Ludwig drums.

Sorry I can't be of much help with this, but at least I try.

Good luck on your quest,
Jimi
