I purchased my red sparkle Genista (22x16, 10x8, 12x8, 15x13, 14x14, 16x16, 18x16 + 14x5,5 snare) in 1999 directly from Premier. It still looks as new! there are no pittings on the chroom and the shell tune so easily that is's unbelievable! The snare is a killer! I also own a 14x6,5 Ludwig Black Beauty but I have to say that my Premier is surely as good as the Ludwig - maybe better!!! If you hit it right it sound as if there's already compression and reverb on it.
It is my perfect workhorse. It sounds wonderful and looks stunning!
Indeed, the best kit Premier ever made!!!
