Default Premier Internal Snare Parts

Hello Everybody

This is my first post and I hope I can get an answer from somebody. I have an older Premier Hts 200. Ive been surching for a long time and was finally able to purchase a new Premier internal top snare mechanism threw the net. The problem is that it doesn't fit my top suspension ring. It has square ends ( 1cm x 1.75cm) that fits in the drum hoop. My drum hoop and old mechanism has slotted ends (.25cm x 1cm)
Are the internal snares different for the Hts 200 and 700???
Could this internal snare be for the new premier 800 snare drum???
The company I bought from has no idea what Im talking about.

Appreciate any advice.

Hi Crazy King
My young learner drummers use the HTS 200 and the competing band use the HTS 700
I will look at both drums and let you know after next week`s band practice what is the best thing for you to do.
Cheers
Kaily

Hello Crazy king:

Sounds to me like you have a much older Premier drum that has slotted keys for the head and snare mech. This would be before the HTS 200 model and even before the last of the Super Royal Scot models. Posting a picture would help greatly.

good luck,

No, Its a Premier HTS 200. About 10-15 years in age. I have played the old ones thow.
I ordered a new suspension ring for a 700, so Ill will let you know what they send me and if it works. My fear is that the snare mecanism I bought is ment to fit the new HTS 800. I tried to get premier parts for along time and now it seems easy.

I see what you mean by slots -- not the slotted key but the style needed to accept the snare mech.

There are no slots for the top snare on an HTS700 or 800 (350 or 400). Only a 200 has slots in the suspension ring which the snare mech falls down into and a small plate with two hex bolts screws over to hold the snare mech in place.

An HTS800 snare mech will retro-fit into an HTS700 suspension ring.

I'd suggest Camerons Drumming Studio for all your advice and parts supplies especially if in Canada. www.cameronsdrumming.com

good luck,

doug s.

I can vouch for the fact that Hugh Cameron is a great source for assistance on drums, especially Premier. After all, we went to college together, us and the dinosaurs!!!

CrazyKing can u send me some pictures of the drum, hoop, strainer I may be abke to sort it out. The older original 200's came with a top strainer that had a square chanel for the cross bar or slide if you will. Later they changed the a flat aluminum bar. If your drum had the square channel type then you have an old 200. The old Super Royal Scots had a round slide, so yours should be an older 200. Again sight unseen I'mm guessing. You will need to either obtain a new top seat assembly for the new strainer you purchased. If it snare boxes on each end are made of pot metal it is a 700 assembly, still available. If its made of plastic its an 800 assembly. Either will work with the proper seat assembly. You can also scavenge ebay. Here's one. Listed as a 700, but you see by the square channel its a 200. Already sold.

Hope this helps.

the snare mech in the pic is for an HTS700 (350) only -- it may fit in an 800 but not sure why anyone would bother with that.

The new hts800 mechs will fit into an HTS700 suspension ring which would be an excellent retro-fit for a 700 drum looking for a new lease on life.

It may be easier to find another used HTS200 drum than finding a specific HTS200 part.

good luck,
