Steeped in British military history, Premier’s Traditional marching bass drums feature a thin 4mm, 5-ply solid birch shell with 4.8mm, 6-ply support rings. Developed to exacting standards, the drums deliver a strong mid-range which cuts through the densest of musical arrangements without being overbearing. Lightweight in its design, the Traditional bass drum is perfect for marching bands and those on parade.
Birch offers the perfect amount of volume and articulation necessary to ensure your ensemble can be heard. The placement of the support hoops guarantee optimal range whilst the iconic flush bracing tension lugs, a Premier ‘first’, are cast for maximum strength and ease of tensioning.
Finished in gloss lacquer, with deep chrome hardware, the Traditional bass drum is the perfect blend of heritage and technical innovation. Built to meet specific requirements in sound, appearance and performance, the bass drum meets superior expectations on parade and delivers ultimate reliability in the field.
