    The quality of the drum i purchased from Primas, is unmatched. I reached out after I saw a snare built on a private forum. I was quickly responded to, and my inquiry was handled by the builder! I purchased the snare and was kept apprised during all of the shipping and parcel process. Primas drums took care of me and my order professionally and expeditiously. I look forward to working with them in the future.
