The bloodlines of the HTS 800 and HTS 400 can be traced back across the decades with an impeccable championship winning pedigree and a spirit that harkens back hundreds of years. To create the latest incarnation of the HTS pipe band drum Premier has taken the proven DNA of its predecessors and engineered further improvement in operation, performance and design and once again achieved new standards in sound and build quality. No other pipe band drum delivers the dynamic clarity, precise articulation, clear projection and full tone of the HTS 800 and HTS 400 that in your hands are proud additions to the family and will carry the Premier name and the names of future champions to victory for years to come.

Hand in hand with the engineering improvements to the HTS 800 comes the exciting option to offer the drum with Premier’s distinctive Diamond Chrome fittings. Diamond Chrome features an unrivalled brilliant finish combined with extreme durability and since the ’60s’ has set the benchmark for chrome plating musical instruments. The HTS 800 in Diamond Chrome firmly asserts itself as Premier’s flagship instrument and the pinnacle of pipe band snare drum design and performance.

Sparkle Blaze Lacquer – The Blaze Collection features a contrasting sparkle band on the HTS snare drum designed to complement the equivalent finish on the mid-section drums. In addition, the tenor and bass hoops are lacquered all over – offering greater protection from adverse weather conditions.

Colours available;
