I bought this drum kit from the Newcastle Drum Centre, England. I had to get my own kit as I was borrowing a lump of crap percussion plus kit from a friend. I paid £429 and that included all hardware and hi-hats and a 16" crash.

I like the heavy duty hardware and the excellent bass pedal. Easy to make small adjustments to the set up. Looks great in Midnight Blue by the way.

The skins on the toms and the bass drum have way to much resonance. I put a blanket in the bass drum which helped and used cloth to dampen the toms.I would reccommend buying some Remo Heads for them, sounds so much better! The kit came with Sabian Solar Cymbals which sound really terrible.

Very well put together...…

Very well put together and sturdy. However after 2 days one of the screws on the inside of the floor tom came loose and wa rattling around inside the drum. I screwed it back in and all seems fine. Tama hardware is great, really strong.

Great beginner drum kit at a good price. Shame about the heads and the cymbals, but at least these can be replaced.

Got it for Christmas, not sure about price. I like the size, good sound can be attained, easy to assemble.

The Swingstar set is now even better, with all new specs and Tama’s latest hardware: more adjustable tom holders, more stable and easier-to-tune bass hoops, new spur brackets you can fold with the spur on, the new Power Grid single-chain bass pedal, new Swivel Foot hi-hat stand, a new snare stand that swivels with the same tilting angle, and more. Set includes 16” x 20” bass drum, 9” x 10” tom, 10” x 12” tom, 14” x 14” floor tom, 5-1/2” x 14” steel snare, double tom holder, hi-hat stand, snare stand, straight cymbal stand, and drum pedal. Cymbals not included.

I like the way you can make adjustments easily. Good beginners set

Snare isn't up to par even w/ a new head. The switch on it (to go from snare to tom) has fallen off a couple of times.


Good qualty, ....Not sure about the hardware that comes w/ it because when I got mine it had different hardware.


I'm guessing it was in the neighborhood of $450 to $550 so I would say it is definitely worth it. Good beginner set. Could be improved w/ better snare drum. Well manufactured set of drums.

The swing star 80 start date, I have personally purchased in 1981, plus 2 concert toms 8 "and 10" it was equipped with remo pinstripe
I kept 6 years very good drumkit and easy to adjust. I went from Mapex because I have not found (at least in this price range) the same feeling with the swing star 80s

Old model 70 or 80 (the seller did not know very well) bought used for 300 euros, with skins EVANS Hydraulic Double Fold Bath Oil Blue and hardware (soon replaced, see below) without cymbals .

How long have you use it?
For about 10 years

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Two other models. A drumkit unbranded to redo my hand after a long journey through the desert, then another hand TAMA which is revealed in a deplorable state.

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
The least: quality hardwares. I quickly bought feet charley and cymbals and a pedal GC.
Snare: A sound bowl, replaced a PEARL signing Shad Smith.
The suspension of Toms.

The suspension of Toms.
What I like most: quality, even if it is not a high-end, it's tough, and sound (if choosing good skin) is a very good level for amateur I am.

How would you rate the quality / price?
Ideal (but bought used)

With experience, you do again this choice?
For use in the same circumstances, yes. But if the music takes on a more important role in my life, I will invest in a range of higher level.


In summary: This TAMA now with me for ten years and it has never failed me. Its (possible) replacement pinch my heart and I think I will keep it anyway.
