Hello vintage Premier drum fans.
Here we have a very rare and amazing vintage Premier 12 round x 8 inch tom tom. Size is approximate and measured in inches.
According to my on line research and feedback from Premier collectors this is a late 1940s or possibly early 50s drum with the badge reading Premier Made And Registered In England.
I have personally never seen one of these drums until now.  
6 lugs per side.
Based on condition and age I am rating this drum in excellent condition.
Finished in original gloss black wrap. 

I believe the finish is called "black duroplast" according to Premier drum collectors.

Original die-cast hoops on both sides. Original lugs. Original mount. All tension rods are original.
Chrome finish on all hardware items is excellent condition.
Very clean exterior shell finish. No non-original holes in the shell. Tight seams. The shell is in round.
Shell interior and bearing edges are in excellent condition.
The drum appears to have its original Premier calf-skin style heads top and bottom (see photos)
The drum delivers amazing depth and resonate tone.
This is a double muffler drum, mufflers on batter and resonate sides. Both mufflers and control dials are original and in place (works fine).
Note: As seen in last photo I also have available the matching finish and matching badge vintage Premier super rare 16 round x 18 inch 10 lug floor tom. This floor tom can be combined shipped with the 12 inch tom -- contact me for details if interested in adding the floor tom.
Don't miss out on this classic vintage drum!
