NAMM 2014 PRESS RELEASE: Premier unveil the XPK Special Edition kit, an eight-piece concert tom kit that provides an affordable solution for drummers who were fans of this classic set-up, or for players looking to set themselves apart from the crowd.
The XPK Special Edition is inspired by the retro concert tom kits of the 1970s, preferred at the time by some of the world’s leading recording and performing drummers including the legendary Keith Moon.
This new offering delivers an all-birch shell with classic mounted toms and clear drumheads with a black dot for a more controlled sound. All fittings are chrome-plated and the kit is complemented with a matching wood snare drum and matching bass drum hoops.
The Concert Tom 22 set-up includes an 8”x6” tom, 10”x7” tom, 12”x8” tom, 13”x9” tom, 14”x14” floor, 16”x16” floor, 22”x16” bass and a 14”x6.5” snare drum. To complete the set-up a tom holder and additional double tom stand are also included.
Launching at NAMM will be the Natural Satin Lacquer (NSL) colour with further finish options to be announced later this year by Premier.
With the aim to launch innovative and exceptional kits on a yearly basis, the XPK Special Edition is an affordable addition to Premier’s XPK portfolio that presents something unique for dealers and consumers alike.
