From thread "Water Based Poly"

Spent part of Easter weekend at the farm.
I asked Jonas about the drums. I thought they were my brother's (Jonas' dad), but no, they are Jonas'.
He said they are Premier's "Signia Marquis" set, about 18 yrs old. He didn't recall the exact age.
Listening to Eric Clapton, Jonas played and coached Blake, my niece's son. We had a good time. A few pics....
With school out for Easter week, Blake is hanging out with me, for a few days. The work bench is a bit tall, for him....

Sounds like a wonderful time was had by all!
Those were really nice drums-- Premier's high end kit for that time, I believe. Premier (and some other makers like Sonor) use undersized shells. This allows the drumheads to sit nice and flat on the bearing edge of the shells which lets the drums be tuned real low and still have nice sustain.
I applaud you for having your priorities straight by building the shop around that sweet drum riser. :-D
Thanks for sharing.
