Default TAMA 90s Customized 9pc RockStar

Here is a project kit i am working on (or should I say working for to build)

Its a TAMA 90s RockStar Kit i customized with new StarCast Rims, Mounting Systems, bass Drum Spurs, Claws, New Heads and an LU1465 Diamond Plate Snare

I am still saving up cash becuase I intend to replace all my Boom Stands with the ones with counter weights on em.

Plus the fact that i am also saving up money as well to get cymbals again.

I am still using the 1st Generation Cobras if you will notice.

Tell me what you guys think ok







and with a little bit of drama...





here's a great pic from the web i found

Do you plan on powder coating the hardware black to match the iconic Lars kit? That could be done for a couple hundred or so.

Looks like you are on the right path... pretty cool!

Thanks for the reply

i have heard suggestions like that just recently, but 1 is I am a bit afraid that it would get scraped of sometime in the future and make it look like a mess ( i have no experience with it really - although it sounds more and more interesting) but then 2nd, my tom configurations are not like what Lars' got. It would just turn out like a half cooked wannabe kit.

I am also thinking on how to make it look a bit different in a way I really am no Mike Portnoy to have alot of cymbals and percussion. i plainly like to play the drums and enough crashes to go with my kit... just straight forward rock to metal groove drumming.

Well they might not be exactly the same but i'm sure no-one would notice ;) plus i just like the look of black on white. You would be right in the sense that black paint can chip away easily but the difference between paint and powdercoat is that powdercoating is designed for heavy use applications such as drum rims.

I love it the way it is. But a positive thing about the black powdercoating is, it'll match the starcast!

Looks like you could replicate a full fledged THUNDERSTORM with that beast.

fair enough mate. Personally i wouldn't buy an alienware PC, i'm sure they're great but i'd rather spend 2 grand on a computer knowing i'd put it together myself using parts i matched and bought myself. Sorry i know i'm OT here.

looks like a tremendous start! but stay with the chrome, white finishes look so sweet with a bunch of crome, not so the black, curios - what are the specs on the toms and bass drums? and good luck on the project, keep the updates coming!

Which is just the unfortunate territory you step into "any time" your equipment looks "remotely" like some "famous drummers kit". Nice thing about white kits. With some creative lighting, you can make 'em look any color you want.

a positive point i also noticed with TAMA was that I was able to replace practically all the hardware (except for the lugs) with new ones, surprisingly the old and new kits are design with the exact same standards as far as drilled holes are concerned. So the new parts fitted right in perfectly

I am trying to save up for those TAMA RoadPro Boom Stands with the counterweights, to really get that "Old School" looking kit

gotta work harder... oh well

Well I'm guessing it's a Lars Ulrich replica kit, and he has used those as long as I can remember (which isn't very long cause my memory sucks, so feel free to correct me ;) ).

Anywho Wicked Kit! Are you gonna go for the new Z3's he uses or the A Custom Projection Crashes?

Wicked nice kit.

I'm just gonna throw a chip in on that black powder coating, specially on white. Had my rims done a while back and they are still good.


Now to get my rack done...
