Default Re: Which drum to buy

I looked into this 10 yrs ago...regarding Premier Drums.

Here is the response I received from a top rep at Premier :

The weight of the HTS800 is approx 7.1 Kg and HTS400 6.4 Kg. In addition to this the higher centre of gravity when carrying the shorter drum makes a noticeable difference to the ‘perceived’ weight. Whenever I am asked about drum weights I also try to remind people of the related issues of good posture, good quality and correctly set up carriers, suitable practice schedule and the range of stands we manufacture to allow periods of practice without having to carry the drum.“

Andante info may be relatively similar. You could ask them. I think other points made are noteworthy.
