    I love vintage Premier, I even love the more modern offerings from Premier.
    Been fortunate to own 2 of their sets and several of their snares, including the brilliant 2000 aluminum and a classic Royal Ace..
    That was a fine acquisition and I hope you'll appreciate & enjoy them for many years!

    Thanks for the scans Steven. I am looking forward to putting them through their paces soon.

    I have noticed the snare is pretty dry. It looks completely stock with the 2 sets of snare wires and heads.

    Take care of the wires, they can be tough to come by.

    True!
    Those fabulous Double Twelve wiresets aren't produced any longer to my knowledge -and if there are any replicas you'd probably only be able to source them from jolly old England.

    FYI you can still get wires for a 2000 model (although they are one piece instead of two). I just ordered a set from the marching band shop in the UK. The model number is 0655.

    However, wires for a royal ace are very hard to find, and costly if you do find them.

    I will check the article. I ran my cases through the washer a few times with vinegar, detergent, and a mix of the two. They have been airing out in my garage for about 2 weeks now. I don't noticethe smell wheb walking past them. I will check on them this weekend and see what direction I need to take, if any with them. I found an Olympic Premier HH stand bass and bass pedal which should be on their to me. I am hoping the rod from the Olympic HH stand will fit into the Lokfast stand I have so all of my stands for the kit will be LokFast, if not the Olympic will match very very well, IMO.
