Premier Drums, Marching Drums, Timpani, and Drum Parts.

This page lists various drums and parts, including a range of Premier drums, Timani, marching drums and drum parts. These items are all brand new, but reduced to clear at great prices. For any groups wanting to purchase several items I am willing to see what I can do with regard to price. Once these drums clear, it may not be possible to get these instruments here in the future, and if they do become available, will cost a lot more.

All Premier items are genuine instruments and genuine parts. Some items are new old stock, in that it was brought into the country some years ago, but brand new.

All prices are inclusive of GST. I am able to organise freight, if required. Cost varies with destination.

For schools wishing to order, I am able to provide ABN and invoice the school.

Premier Timpani

Premier Timpany Premier Timpany



All brand New. There are now only 3 timpani left, as described below. Drastically reduced in price. Once this lot is gone there definitely won't be any more to be had at this price, and very possibly no Premier timps available for a long time.

Included in the price is delivery and set up of the instrument for any one or any school located in Melbourne Metropolitan area. This means I will deliver, unpack, assemble and prepare the instrument ready for use, and take away any packaging. This really only means clearing the head as I have found these timpani to be ready to play out of the box.

Concert Series Copper 25" (64cm) $3000 (normally $7195)

Concert Series Fibreglass 25" (64cm) $2500 (normally $4795)

Concert Series Fibreglass 28" (71cm) $2500 (normally $4995)

I can freight this iten anywhere in Australia.

Caledonian Marching Bass Drum

Caledonian Marching Bass Drum Caledonian Marching Bass Drum

26" x 10".

This is an old Australian made marching bass drum, made by Legato.

Brand new. Perfect Condition. There are 3 of these available.

Timpani Heads

Timpani Heads



Various sizes timpani heads. These are either Everplay or Premier Elite heads, and are the standard heads that Premier timpani come with.

There are a number of sizes, from 23 8/16" to 33". The way a timpani head is measured can vary between manufacturers and players. Often a timpani head needs to be around 2 inches larger than the instrument. For example a 28" timpano these days needs a 30" head, but ultimately it comes down to what fits exactly in the instruments hoop, and this does need to fit exactly. When ordering these I wil need to know the exact internal dimension of the hoop, or the exact external measurement of the old head.

I am able to come and fit new heads. If I don't have one in stock then I will need to order watever is required, which will be much more than the ones advertised here.

Price $60 each.

Bass Drum Heads

Side Drum Sling

Premier Flat Rings

I learn something about drum stuff all the time it seems. This is a set of 6 flat rubber rings, that, according to the label, "damps any kit to a perfect studio sound in seconds". Has 12-13-14-16 inch rings.

They don't look too flat at the moment, but apparently need to be laid out flat for a while to go flat. These have been sitting around in a warehouse for years so may need some extra time to flatten out.

Price: This price $20 each set.

Goat Skin Vellum

Goat Skin Vellum Goat Skin Vellum

These are old stock but new. I have 3 pieces. The smallest one is 600mm across.

I have had these for a few years, as I used to do various repairs involving replacing this material, but there does not seem to be the need for this anymore. It seems vellum heads are not able to be imported anymore.

These would be ideal for drum heads or smaller timpani where skin vellum head is required. Great for old drum restoration.

Price: $90 each.

I am able to freight anywhere in Australia. Cost will depend on destination.
