Tama Rockstar Standard : curbsider's user review
« 5 piece tama rockstar kit »
I was looking for a kit to offer customers using the practice studios I building for local musicians. The studio build $'s were adding up, but I wanted to offer a solid kit for my patrons. So, I was looking for something in my price range. I ended up buying a pearl forum 5 piece and when I went to arrange the drums, I found the variety of positions very limited. The next day, I recieved a call for a used 5 piece tama rockstar kit. Although I just purchase the pearl kit the day before, I wanted to at least compare one kit against the other. Once I tryed the tama kit, I was sold. The sound was solid not booming like the pearl. The versitility of the hardware was incredible. I was finally able to get the drum positioning that I find Ideal. It came with a brushed aluminum wrap, that I think will look great under any stagelighting. I purchased the 5 piece drum pack for $250.. I thought that I was walking away with a deal on a quality kit that anyone would enjoy playing as a practice studio supplied drum kit. After paying for a drum kit the night before, I would not have bought this kit, on my limited budget, unless I wasn't totally overwhelmed with the quality, tone and ease of adjustability. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
