Default Re: Show off your TAMA !

the finish is much more detailed, that picture does not do justice. the red is like a sparkle, very cherry and the black looks like someone has painted black on then grabbed their fingers to run different streaks through it.

ofcorse it's laquered not a wrap. has hyperdrive toms (10x6.5, 12x7 if i recall correctly) with a 22x20 virgin bass drum, 16x14 floortom and a 14x5.5 snare. black nickle hardware, not chrome. where as standard b/b kits only come with chrome

What exactly is that finish? looks like if you replaced the silver in the Black Clouds and Silver Linings finish that Mike Portnoy had made for Dream Theater's last tour with red... and I'm drooling over it. Beautiful, I want one.

Just got these, heavyly gigged Superstars; toms are '83 12x8, 15x12 (was a mounted tom) bass drum 22x16 is '84. I've wanted this era Superstars since I was a kid. The cherry wine finish is pretty beat but they sound amazing. I've had the aluminum legged Tama Spartan stands since the early '80's. Kinda ugly but I love them, I'm looking for a matching snare stand...

I did. The guy who recorded an album for my band put those on there. This guy was a professional (he recorded Boston's big album) and I couldn't believe he had done that to my toms when I came back from lunch. He convinced me it was "for the best"...Oh well, that's what I get for being a dumb kid at the time.

Well, here it is and it's just about coming up on the third year that I've had it. It's a Tama Starclassic full Bubinga 7 piece kit. This particular set of drums were manufactured in Japan before Tama started moving most of their manufacturing to China. The finish of the drums is called "scorched copper burst" and it is a lacquer finish. All hardware in the pictures is made by Tama, except the stick holders, they're made by Promark.

All the Cymbals are Zildjian A Customs and I added two since I shot these pictures.

The drums are:

22" x 18" bass drum
8" x 7" rack tom
10" x 8" rack tom
12" x 9" rack tom
14" x 12" floor tom
16" x 14" floor tom
14" x 5 1/2" snare

The cymbals on the picture are:

16" A Custom Crash
14" A Custom Hi Hats
20" Medium ride
18" A Custom Fast crash
12" A Custom splash
19" A Custom crash
20" Ping ride
18" A Custom Reso prototype China
9" Zildjian ZilBel
17" A custom crash

not pictured is a 15" A Custom crash to the left of the Hi Hats and a 10" A custom splash above the 12" rack tom.













Thanks for looking.
Dennis

Where can I find tama tom mounts that audiotech have? I hate my Superstar with those spikes on it... looks so childish and tacky. "Hey lets put some spikes on it to make it look more cool!"... yeah right...

Beautiful kit btw audiotech! I like the two ride setup.

Here are my 86 Tama Crestars. I've had them since new, and they've seen a few stages and the backs of a few vans. Here are a few different setups with them.

4 piece I was using for a bit with a Ludwig snare.


Here as an offset 5 piece with a Tama Artwood 5x14 maple snare.


Full 6 pc setup with the same snare.



Some gig pics over the years.

Great kit. My bro had a double kick similar kit (Rush fans here) back in the day. Once in a while I see someone selling a Superstar kit for a reasonable amount and my wallet gets itchy.

Nice vintage TAMA (we can call it vintage after 25 years) and welcome on DrummerWorld.

Have fun & enjoy your stay :-)

Crestars or Granstars? I was unaware they made a line called Crestar.

Thanks, I didn't know that. Granstar does have a better ring to it. But then again, at this same time, Tama thought 11" toms would take off too!

Pro Drum in Hollywood seems to have a bunch of these 11" heads in stock. Still!

I would'nt hesitate to buy one if offered now. I mean think about it.. It's more like WE are the problem because we are thinking about numbers.. Is it just that we prefer EVEN numbers for some reason ?

but whos' to say a more ideal sound is'nt 9, 11, 13, 15, 17.. These would actually be JUST as relevant as any even sizes, IMO.

So wonderful to see all these great TAMA kits. I sold my SC maple to my ever lasting regret.

That I sold it to buy a Pearl is not a regret, it is a shame.

These days I am surrounded by TAMA and they never cease to impress. They're on a level with Sonor!!!!! Wow.

Well as one who owns high end versions of each, I find no evidence to support your claim. Also, no high end Sonor drum is made in China. I should state I like Made in Japan high end TAMA. I won't vouch for Chinese made high end TAMA and do not plan on buying any.

Who's talking about China ?? I can't make a judgement call on those..although I would not doubt them for a minute. but my HiLIte was a pretty cool kit, but got it's asss handed to it very easily by my Japan Artstar Custom, quality wise... Everything about it.

Don't get me wrong.. I love Sonor to death.. but as far as quality,.. I would hand the LASTING edge and tolerences of metal pieces. etc.. to Tama, easy.

It was I who spoke of China.

I restate I love Japan made TAMA. Since moving production to China some standards have slipped. This goes to my mentioning China. It is relevant as such.

What is unclear is your evidence stating TAMA has better quality control. I find no evidence of this. I find the statement totally without merrit.

I do not wish to be argumentative and am not attempting to be. I simply find that comment unfounded in my experience.

No problem. and we are all drummer friends here.. so we must have good intention.. of course !!

Anyway.. I want to definitely point this toward drum kits.. and not based on snares. My experience with almost all of my German Sonor's were that when taken apart.. the lugs, brackets, etc.. were not up to the same level of qc as Tama. They were not as clean at the edges and the metal was not as perfectly smooth as the Tama pieces.. The drum shells, while the Sonor's were fine.. they were not as cleanly constructed with regard to plies and perfect edges as the Tama.. This., Yung.. was MY experience. Also.. keep in mind.. the newer generation like late Designer to SQ is metal parts by KHS. Go check Sonormuseum.

If you want to find individuals with issues on current SQ.. just go read on Sonormuseum and they are definitely there. Also with Designer issues to for build quality. Can you find me a number of Japan Starclassic Maple owners with significant problems ??

Wy.. little secret for you. Japan Starclassic is alive and well and if you want that .. you can have it. It's not going anywhere.

Although I have not seen any evidence of a bad China Starclassic.
