Premier has for decades supplied the drums and percussion to many bands around the world that follow the tradition and repertoire of British military music and worked closely with armed forces to develop products that meet specific requirements in sound, appearance and performance.

It is fair to say that no other manufacturer can claim this lineage and faithful partnership with traditional British marching music. Premier understands that military percussion instruments must match superior expectations on parade and deliver ultimate reliability in the field.

Premier’s 0097 and 0097-S military snare drums have become representative of professional music in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces and concurrently with numerous engineering and finishing improvements to these iconic snare drums. Premier’s range now includes bass and tenor drums in classic sizes, finished in the traditional red, white and blue military livery.
