A natural progression for advancing drummers who desire that unmistakable Premier sound. Restyled low-mass lugs, ISO mounts and an all-birch shell contribute towards the impressive levels of sustain, resonance, and projection that Artist offers.


The next natural step for the advancing drummer, Artist comprises of an all-birch shell – a feature found on many iconic Premier kits for over 60 years, and one that remains integral to that classic Premier sound.


Artist shells are crafted from a 7.5mm, 6-ply construction. The choice of a thicker shell yields exceptional projection that’s suitable for small, intimate venues, without the need of amplification from a PA system. Birch also provides a bright, articulate tone with fantastic weight and attack, making it also suitable for home recording and streaming.
