Premier Drums


This was Larry's kit during the early U2 days leading up to the 'Boy' album. I am not sure but this kit might have been used during the 'Boy' recordings.
Pictures of this kit can be found in the sources listed below. This kit was also in the 'Pride In The Name Of Love: 2 Decades of U2' exhibit at the Cleveland Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame from February 2003 through February 2004.
Larry later switch to a Tama Fibrestar' kit and later various Yamaha kits. He still plays Yamaha drums today, other than the Slingerland kit [allegedly belonging to The Edge] that has been seen in studio photo's and used on Achtung Baby through to All That You Can't Leave Behind.
