Premier was a brand name of the Sorkin Music Company, an amplifier manufacturer and mail-order instrument distributor. The company was founded by Peter Sorkin in 1938 in New York City, and also made Multivox amplifiers. Sorkin introduced very small radio sized amplifiers at the end of the 1930s. By the 1950s and 1960s Premier amplifiers were more ornate and had dark brown and light tan coverings with fine wood grains. The company closed in 1970.
