Zel Kaute Vodun



I’ve always been impressed with the great sound on any Premier kit I’ve owned or played, and I love the rock'n'roll history behind the company.


Before she even picked up her first pair of drumsticks, Zel fell in love with the look of her dad’s Premier kit. This early affection for drums decided her future as a professional drummer. Zel has always been impressed with the sound of the many Premier kits she’s owned or played on that led to a warm affinity towards the brand.

Upon joining the Premier family, Zel said “I love the modern Premier ethos of wanting to extend that family feeling outwards to all its clientele whilst never comprising on quality.”

Today, Zel can be seen behind her natural satin Elite kit, drumming for numerous bands including Vodun and Test Dept, both of whom are set to release new albums this year.

Polish theater director Miroslaw Kocur perhaps sums up Zel’s style the best, “pounding the drums with astonishing ease, as if breathing, but producing really powerful sounds. She seemed to express the original, anarchic pulse, characteristic of the early performances of political radicals Test Department. I could not take my eyes off the drummer – she not only enlivened the old team spirit, but also bought something new; a brutal power of sounds, bordering on violence, but with a natural grace and delicacy.”
