Default My New (to me) Tama Superstars

Gave up on finding the Artstar II's in these crazy sizes when I found this kit. Birch shells in 15x14, 18x16, & 24x16. I also received my Tama long snare wires today to finish off my 14x8 Superstar snare. Next on my list is hardware then cymbals.

Thanks! The kits in good shape, I have dated it to late 1985. The bass hoops are pretty nicked up I am wondering if I should try to touch them up or just leave them as is. This kit is a beast!

WOW Neat drums, man!!! 1000% rock n' roll.

Now all you've gotta do is find two other guys and make a Nirvana tribute band. Hehe.



Cheers!

You from Virginia? I saw a set that I think was just like that on Craigslist recently. I was very tempted by it.

More than likely going to be picking up a DW 9000 single pedal soon. I am also working with my local drum retailer (Long Island Drum Center) to locate a 24" Black Tama Logo front bass drum head with the 10" center hole. Not an easy thing to find!

Guitar Center came through with a special order from Tama for me!

Now the hunt for a used DW 5000 or 9000 single bass pedal. Maybe a Christmas present for myself lol

NICE!!!! I am green with envy! That is totally Dave Grohl!
I have a starclassic performer. 10x8, 12x9, 14x12 (just got, haven't used) and 16x16 with a 22x18. I am thinking about setting it up with the 14x12 and 16x16 as a kind of Dave Grohl kit!

Few new shots I took -





I think I am going to go a different direction than Dave Grohl and do Paiste 2002 15" Wild hats, 18" & 20" Wild crashes and 24" 2002 Ride. Still on the fence between those and Zildjian A's. I want to replicate his "In Utero" kit as close as I can but add some of my personal touches to it as well.

Well I went the Paiste route. Just got my 2oo2 24" Ride and DW9700 boom stand today. I am in no rush and am picking deals as I find them. I need to move these bad boys out of my bedroom and into a decent space.... but where?

Brings back so many memories of seeing Dave Grohl's kit back in the 90s as a kid and always wondering how the hell I would see the audience with rack toms that large. Haha. Awesome kit :)

Oh wow my pep band kit at school is just like that but 5 piece, they are so loud, my band instructor tells all the drummers to quite down when on that kit cause it blasts. Nice set dude the ps3 bass drum head packs serious punch on that kit.

Those are massive! Aha, I'd hate playing that kit. But I like small drums--I'd want to convert that 15x14 into a bass drum.

Regardless, nice score! They definitely look great.
