Premier Cabria Series

“Strong, Well made, and great value.”

Written on: 03/08/2012 by will9696 (2 reviews written)

The Premier cabria is the perfect kit for any drummer out there looking for a good sounding, solid, gig worthy kit for a reasonable price. I bought the fusion kit just under two years ago, 22 inch bass, 10, 12, and 14 inch toms and the standard 14 snare. I bought the kit for just over £500, including hardware. The kit comes in many different finishes, all of which that i have seen have looked the part of a much more high end kit. My kit in a purple finish, and really does glow under the lights… Read Full Review

“ Absolutely great value I've owned Tama Rockstar,...”

Written on: 01/05/2011

Absolutely great value I've owned Tama Rockstar, Pearl Export and Sonor Force 2000 as comparisons to these 2003 Laquered Cabria's. Firstly the Pearl gear was ok but terrible hardware, basswood sheels. Tama no complaints good sound just little irritation with some of the memorylocks,shells basswood I think. Sonor fantastic sound, quality hardware very heavy sheels Beech? was a forced sale regretably. No suspension mounts but didnt matter. The Premier Cabria's are only rivalled by the Sonor… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/12/2010

I am 48 years old, been playing 33 years. Well over 2000 paid gigs in my career thus far. One thing that I have learned....I just dont need a $10,000 shell pack to have a good sound. No qualms with the older Premier Cabria kits for the buck. I currently have two sets, one a huge 11 piece double bass home kit. And my gig set that never makes it home. Nice hardware, plenty durable and with suspension mounts. And never a problem with the shells or the tuning. Premier did change their drum after… Read Full Review

I absolutley love this kit. I'm Grade 6 and have had it since i first started. I have no plans to change the kit any time in the forseeable future, and if i was, it would be another Premier kit. I've had the kit for 3 years and i've never had to retune it, or had any problems for that matter. It has withstood frequent use and gigging brilliantly. Would recommend 100%… Read Full Review

You've never tuned your kit in THREE YEARS???!!!! That somewhat undermines the credibility of your review as a drummer. Looks like they need to include a few more lessons before "Grade 6". Jeeez....

Written on: 26/05/2010

I got a Premier kit about over two years ago, and I can't tell you how much I love it. The kit is a starting one, but the 2008 model is a great one. I never had to retune it(personally I did. Never broke a head or drum, amd the sound is great. Premier may be an unknown company but I wll use them again(just not there starter kits). Only thing I hate is the doubble toms. I'm more of a one tom guy… Read Full Review

Premier may be an unknown company? What rock have you been living under? Do some research on the company.

Written on: 30/09/2009

ive had this kit for about 6 months now and it still feels like i got it yesterday. i recommend it to all users good or bad. if you are a rock drummer like me, i reccomend putting REMO POWERSTROKE.3. as a drum head for the snare, another POWERSTROKE.3. on the bass drum and an EVANS EC1 on all of the toms including tom.1., tom.2. and of corse the floor tom, thats if you are playing a "14(snare drum),10(tom 1),12(tom 2)14(floor tom),22(bass drum)" drum kit… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/07/2009 by Oratore (1 review written)

The sound quality with the Premier Cabria Series is superb. The smaller fusion-sized drums could use more volume, however. The set is every bit as rewarding to play as my vintage Rogers Londoners. The Cabrias are mahogany (which has the same density as maple) Compared to the Premier birch drums--there is a huge difference--see what you like. I am still exploring the possibilities of this set--so far, very impressed!… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/04/2008 by Danny Meazell (1 review written)

One thing I do not even understand is why the Primer Cabria kit is called an Entry Level drum kit. It is one of the finest kits I have ever played and I have played them all. I would recommend it to anyone in African Mahogany! I love this sound so much I will never buy another kit unless it is African Mahogany. I own Vintage, Rogers, Ludwig, and Slingerland but this kit will stand up to any I have ever played on a professional level. This kit is so professional I will jam with Willie Nelson… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/05/2008

OK I finally found one flaw with my Cabria though I can live with it. The wing nut on the floor toms and toms are too wide because when you tighten them they rub against the shell making a ding in the finish. I do not like that, but I can live with it because the awesome sound of these drums over shadow this one little flaw!

Written on: 18/11/2008

I disagree with this review because...
<br/>
<br/>The Cabrias are fine entry level kits and a good value, but they are not pro gear. I'm not putting down Cabrias, but don't bill them as something they are not.
<br/>
<br/>Play the higher end Premiers, Gretsch USA Customs, DW Collector series, or other high end kits and you'll see and hear the difference.

Written on: 09/04/2005 by 182meets2112 (8 reviews written)

First of all, I am basing this review off of the model mad in 2001-2002. Since my purchasing my own set, Premier has changed the type of wood used in the shells of the drums from maple to mahogany, but the other features on the set are relatively the same. My set was the first to use the ISO mounting system (which is the Premier issue of RIMS mounting). This hardware will allow for maximum resonance requires no drilling into the shell to mount the toms. This feature is very helpful when… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/11/2006

Hi! I've been playing some four years with Cabria and still satisfied! Every working drummer knows
that its not the playing, it is the roading where the gear is missed and having crunches. Despite shells getting some scrathes, also all stands are suffering. With these in mind I've done fine with my Cabria set.
One question to all who it may concern: would someone in the know finally tell what is the big difference between African and Far East mahogany? I allready know it's kind of a different breech? But the tonal differences?
<br/>This is a open question, waiting for answers basing of empire practice. All good, keep swinging! kepa
