You're dating a snare drum? Now that is sad. That said, you might have a point. Snare drums are a lot less trouble and less expensive than the opposite sex.

I took my Black Panther out for dinner and a movie last night.
It was the best date that I have had in years!
She didn't tick me off once all night.
And when we got home we banged around for a while!
She gave me a great Buzz Roll!

I have never been able to find out much info on Tama serial #s

Chill man, We were just kidding,
Tama is not like most drum companies.
There is no information released on their site to account for their in house number system.
That is why we were having a bit of fun with your thread.

Tama is a small part of a large diversified corporation that doesn't do a good job of communicating with the owners of their products.
As a matter of fact, They are down right cold when it comes to customer relations.
They are a typical old fashioned Japanese conglomerate.
They simply will not share anything with us and we can't easily share with them.
Just go to their site and try to ask them something.
Musical instruments are just a small portion of the conglomerates products.
They don't even say what else they make besides Ibanez guitars.
Drums are among the smallest amount of their products!

All communications with them are done by snail mail and you will receive a form letter for an answer. The reply letter will contain nothing that will feel personal to you.
They are cold and corporate all the way.
They do make some great drums though.

Pretty all the major drum companies only use serial numbers so the end user can keep track of their drums for insurance purposes, and no major drum company keeps such serial numbers on file.

Also Tama Rockstar is was the lower line for Tama for nearly 20 years, and through the course of it's history, the snare drum only had minor, if any, changes from any one year compared to any other year.

So getting an exact date for any one Rockstar snare drum would be near impossible and rather pointless, because it's age wouldn't affect it's value.

Overall, it's pretty generic metal snare drum.

The Tama website does have a history section with every catalog scanned and on file. You can dig through there if you want to try and narrow it down.

To those of you that posted jokes about having a relationship with a drum: the exact same thoughts went through my head when I saw the title of this thread, and I was sorely disappointed that I was not the only person clever enough to make such a joke ;)

It was "wide open" so to speak!
I just couldn't resist no matter how I tried.
