Exciting additions to the Spitfire range
24 January 2013
Premier have added three new sizes to the Spitfire Series at this year's NAMM Show.
As part of the British Collection, drums that are exclusively designed and manufactured in England, the Spitfire snare drum was originally launched last year. Owing to popular demand, the range has been expanded to include three new sizes: 13" x 6.25", 12" x 6.25" and a 10" x 6.25" model.
Like the original model, these new additions are 13mm thick with a 23-ply shell consisting of a 21-ply birch core with a single inner and outer ply of oak. Finished in a Georgian English oak with a satin oil application these models also carry a 45 degree bearing edge, 1.8mm deep snare bed, 2.3mm chrome plated triple-flange steel hoops, chrome plated solid brass tube lugs and Premier's innovative lug-lock system.
