Default My Tama SuperStar Custom

It's in the Titanium Fade Finish.
I'm not an emo dork either, I've always liked low toms and jazz configurations.
The cymbals are Paiste PST5 and one 17" Alpha rock crash. The PST5s are very inexpensive but they remind me of the 3000s.
No double pedal since I've grown to hate double pedals.
The snare is a Yamaha Kabuto steel snare. It's very very loud.
Remo smooth Emps on top.
Evans EQ3 on the bass drum batter and a Remo PS3 with a port on the front.
I used to play Yamaha exclusively - since 1987 to be exact. I was very impressed with the Tama Superstars in fact so impressed I opted not to spend the money on a Starclassic.

Nice man. I love the look of that shallow mounted tom.

I like clean. I used to be very into crash cymbals everywhere, splashes everywhere, chinas everywhere, lots of drums everywhere, the more expensive the better (silly logic). Now I don't care. The PST5s are so good it's sick. They really are 3000s in disguise. I love simple rigs now.

Lovely kit - clean is the right word. I'm a satisfied Superstar owner too. I debated about spending the extra dime on one of the custom fades. I like the Titanium in particular. Very classy and striking without being obnoxious. Finally went with black, which I don't regret at all.

And I'm using PST5s, too. Great value.

Oh, and btw, what's an emo dork? And why are you afraid that you're kit would identify you as one?

Emo dorks, er like the fellas in Emo bands, they play the trad toms set low and flat. I think that DB Travis Barker made that setup popular.
I wasn't worried, I just didn't want any nasty comments about my setup being emo. It's not really though.

Superstar Hyper Drive ....... a great choice. Couldn't agree more about the sound quality. Its price is about equal to that of Yamaha SCA and even cheaper than Pearl Export, but its quality is better IMO.

About your last statement, wait until you try the Starclassic Maple, then you'll change your mind and be willing to pay for it whatever its price is ........ t's one of the best drums ever made.

Good choice on the Supes, I love mine to death and I'm pretty sure you'll love yours as well. How are the smooth emperors?

the smooth emperors have a nice warm kind of jazzy sound to them.
