I would 100 % recommend a Premier APK to anybody out there as they are great in sound and reliable.Very versatile, hardwearing, great sounding kit. I've had mine for 12 years and it has never let me down. A perfect kit for beginners to intermediate. I currently use mine on tour around theatres all over the UK and it produces great results.
