Premier Signia Marquis discussion


Hi everyone, new to this site, my name is Jim and have some questions about premier signia marquis I'm about to sell. I know there are people out there that think the regular premier signias are better but I tend to disagree. They are equal as far as sound. The marquis thinner ply shells provides for better resonance. Any thoughts? The re-rings on the regular signia's provide better support, yeah but it's not like your going to throw any of these drums around. Bands like Opeth, Marylin Manson, and Winger use them.

The Signias are indeed good quality kits.

Yes the signia's are good kits but for some reason most people believe the marquis are made cheaply as compared to the original signia's because they do not have re-rings. I personally disagree with them, I am a biased owner of the marquis and they have a much better resonance response in my opinion.

Both are great quality sets, I dont know that too many people would try to talk down one over the other.

Hi
both the Signia & the Signia Marquis are as good of a quality kit that has ever been made & will blow away any other Maple kit on the market. As far as comparison of the 2 series, it all about personal preference, no one can say that one is better than the other. I have both, several times over & love all of them. The only other series that will even come close to blowing them away is the new Premier Maple Classic & Elite series', outstanding drums, amazing finishes & spectacular chrome & hardware as always!!!
By the way ... if anyone needs any Premier items, drums, parts, hardware etc. please contact me, especially for Signia & Genista series.

Tough call!

As good as Premier kits are - and as popular as they were back in the day, as a company they seem to be struggling. They dont have a great endorser list anymore, are virtually void of any signficant advertising campaigns and havent released anything worth batting an eye over for some time.

Dont get me wrong, Birch Genistas and Maple Signias were great kits, but even at that time there was better being made, and by todays standards (particularly with hardware design) they are significantly behind the market.

Thats my observation anyway

Re: Premier Signia Marquis discussion


Yes, there's no doubt that there are issues over here & it's something that I have been discussing with them directly for the past few months. You are not alone in your feelings, I am very aware of that but I have every confidence that things will change & they will be as strong as ever before. Have you played the new maple Classic or used any of the new 6000 hardware? Have you see the new ISO mounts for the Toms? They truly are spectacular, in my opinion, not overdone like some i've seen out there & they perform extremely well.
For Premier fans across this country, hang in there, it'll turn around, it's my quest in life to help it happen!!
you can always contact me direct -dancincrow@earthlink.net ...... hopefully.
