Default TAMA Superstar Custom

This is my New baby, the TAMA Superstar Custom in Blue Metallic Fade.

I was really Tossing up between this kit and the Sonor Force 3005. I went with the Tama because I preferred the Finish and the Hardware. I think I definately made the right Choice.
The 24" Kick is so Fat, it moves a lot of Air :) The Toms are Easy to Tune and really Boom.
Overall Im really Impressed with the Quality of everything and the Sound is Huge!



18"x 24" Bass drum - Naked
9"x 12" Hanging Tom
16"x 16" Floor tom
6-1/2"x 14" Snare drum

Sabian 13" AAX Fusion Hats
Sabian 20" AAX Metal Ride
Sabian 16" AAXplosion Crash
Sabian 18" AAXplosion Crash
Sabian 18" Vault Crash

I chose the Hats and Ride because they were used by Dave Abbruzzese when recording Vs. My Fave PJ Album and some of the Best sounding Drums ever!

Theres a few more pics on www.myspace.com/saintjon1337

*Ive updated the piccies from a recent recording session at Alchemix Studios in Brisbane.

Very nice...seems like every drummer could sit down and feel at home on your kit. Love the deep blue too.

Yeh, you can head over to my myspace site at www.myspace.com/saintjon1337
or my bands site at www.myspace.com/enersha which has a few tracks and a live video.

Unfortunately on the video I had to use Borne's Drummers Yamaha Kit, but with my snare and cymbals i felt right at home.

any feedback would be tops also!

Tama Superstars are awesome...
But I have been wondering:
Tama Superstars have a lot of the same features the Starclassics have, the only real difference is the wood. I cannot imagine that aspect alone being responsible for the starclassics to be nearly three times as expensive. How come the starclassic is so much more expensive? Is it just the name tag, or is there a difference in quality that I am overlooking?

Im not sure Philly,

Most of the hardware is the same, except for a few different upgrades like Pedals, & hi hat stands. & yes the wood is different.

Apart from those, I dont know why they are so much more expensive. This kit sounds and records great, so I can see no reason for upgrading.

The main difference is in quality check, I found that out a few weeks ago. And labor costs; Starclassics are made by more expensive workers in Japan and they check each shell by hand. They don't do that with superstars, and because of that my snare drum has a slightly inconsistent bearing edge on the batter side. It sounds good nonetheless though, I also see no reason to upgrade. So far I heard nothing but good things about my kit.
