Premier: The Beast Snare Drum

Premier: “BEAST” Snare Drum

Premier’s elusive “BEAST” Snare Drum premiered at The Winter NAMM Show 2015 and it delivers unrivalled power and sensitivity and is loaded with innovations that make it the most ferocious Premier snare drum ever produced.

The secret behind the BEAST lies within Premier’s breakthrough shell technology, the Air-Flow system, a triumph of British design and technical ability from which it takes its name – British Engineered Air-Flow Shell Technology.

This Air-Flow Shell Technology runs at the heart of the BEAST. Sonic Chambers circulate the air movement through the shell bringing body and depth to its tonal characteristics. The power and projection is transported via optimally placed Air Projection Vents that control the volume of air released from the shell. The end result is a snare drum that is dynamic, dominant and versatile.

Expertly engineered by (Keith Keough – now co-owner of the British Drum Company) at the Premier Custom Works, The BEAST is constructed from proven materials that enhance performance – the lugs are machined from solid aluminium and fitted with stainless steel True-Tune Inserts that pivot freely, delivering precision alignment and tuning; whilst the cast aluminium hoops further stabilise the tuning process within any range.

Taking Premier’s famous shell-building techniques to new heights, The BEAST features a massive 50-ply (28mm) specially blended shell, formulated and hand-made in Leicester England from the finest woods recognised in drum manufacture: birch, tulip, sycamore, oak and maple.

The BEAST is built for endurance and demands to be played. Heavily influenced by our core values – passion, quality and innovation – it combines ground-breaking design with British ingenuity, setting new standards to perfect the world’s most powerful snare drum ever.

Unfortunately there are no videos on YouTube to see and especially hear this cool snare drum in action. What a total bummer that Premier only made this drum in a small production run. But most disappointing to hear was that Premier Percussion a well-known British Drum Manufacture since 1922 closed there plant in the UK and have moved all their production to Taiwan, what a shame!

OAKLEY please bring back the Eye Jacket 2.0 Sunglasses!!! They are and were the best fitting and the most comfortable sunglasses I’ve ever owned, and my last pair is on their last legs.

Store Location Requests: Whole Foods Market & Trader Joe’s on LI’s East End

Ever since Whole Foods Market opened their first New York City store in Chelsea, I’ve been a loyal customer and have shopped at locations throughout New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. After moving from the city back to Long Island, I was so disappointed to find that there wasn’t a Whole Foods in Suffolk County planned and was determined to get one built in the community. My diligence paid off, because after repeatedly calling the Northeast regional office over a period of ten years and speaking with the head real estate manager in charge, requesting that they come to the area, a Whole Foods Market finally made its way to Lake Grove in Suffolk County.

Since then, I have moved further east to the North Fork and once again find myself without a Whole Foods, a Trader Joe’s or a Wild by Nature, an independent subsidiary of King Kullen Grocery Company. After talking to friends and locals in the area, I discovered that I am not alone in wanting these specialty supermarkets to be built in the area. So once again, I have taken on the task to get a Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe’s and a Wild by Nature somewhere between Riverhead and Southold.
Also as of fall 2014 in Port Jefferson Station their is needed infrastructure improvements being made to help support a revitalization of a well strategically placed shopping center complex, which will probable be totaly demolished in the years to come. This would be an ideal location as it is directly on New York State Route 347 at the intersection with New York State Route 112.

In order to accomplish this mission, I am asking anyone that lives in or frequents the East End, to help me in this endeavor. If you enjoy and have a need for a natural, organic diet and prefer all natural bath & body care products along with non-toxic natural household cleaners to please call and email Whole Foods Market’s Northeast regional office, Trader Joe’s corporate office and King Kullen/Wild by Nature’s corporate office to request new locations for store fronts to be built on Long Island’s North Fork and South Fork in Suffolk County here in New York State.

And once these stores are built, we must not forget to remind these companies to help support our community by sourcing produce from local farms and products from specialty vendors.
