Premier’s investment in tooling and production allows the new HTS800 and HTS400 snare drums to build upon the success of their predecessors, the HTS700 and HTS350 which have dominated the world of pipe band drumming for over a decade. Like the HTS700 and HTS350, the HTS800 and HTS400 have been designed in collaboration with the world’s leading Pipe Band Drummer, Jim Kilpatrick MBE, and introduce a number of major features:

Entirely re-engineered top/internal and bottom/external snare mechanisms combining added strength, smooth operation  and precision adjustment to achieve unparalleled versatility in tuning and consistency in setting.

New stainless steel tension bolts to virtually eliminate binding under tension.

New cast aluminium cage with polished hoops as standard.

Proven 14”x12” (HTS800) and 14”x7” (HTS400) 6mm/6 ply 100% birch with internal acoustic lacquer process for amazing response and tone.

Re-profiled bearing edges specifically designed to enhance projection and clarity and properly seat all manufacturers heads.

Specialized new packing system to ensure maximum protection in shipping.

HTS800 & HTS400
With the introduction of the long anticipated HTS800  and HTS400 Premier will once more take Pipe Band snare drum design to the next level.
