Tama Made in Japan (1979-1984)
Imperialstar model used sometimes with a snare Pearl Jupiter COB by Stewart Copeland (Police) on the first albums of the group appears to catalog 74 and disappears in 1980; easy to check the catalogs Tama time. is the high-end Tama early production, but drums mahogany philippines lack of charisma: it sounds small and any input current range is Chinese as well.

these models are quickly dethroned by the arrival in 1976 of Superstar: a model birch will be the first "noble" drumkit of the brand; its brightness will turn off in 1984 to be replaced by three models: granstar birch, birch Artstar1 / Artstar cordia and "spirit" birch / mahogany. copy the manufacture of these new models will strengthen Tama for long on the highest steps.

I have a seven Imperialstar drums for ten years and I play every week two drums 8 "and 10" without franchemant bad, the sound behind: lack of projection, high-mids.

as regards the Superstar is a niche; for over twenty years I have a beautiful range of several kits in all sizes, from the 1976 model reinforcements chamfer to the later models, drums "fast" or "Xtras": mahogany, cherry, natural maple, aquamarine or sunburst: where it starts to be playable: Lenny White, Elvin Jones and Billy Cobham were consultants for the development of the baby and you know immediately that it begins to cause serious: attack, precision, depth, tonal balance, we do not get bored.

I played more than a hundred beautiful models in all brands and Superstar is probably with the Pearl DLX / GLX the first real instrument "made in japan"

malus: small recurrent weakness bindings tom: the fluted rod quickly becomes smooth, even using the (small) rings memories, and toms fall under the law of gravity; the same on the first models shells spades bass drum deform permanently, and it is recommended not to tighten like crazy butterflies floor tom shells: after a recent time they are so sought eventually tear.

Tear shell = shell screwed.

strengths: sound, construction barrels, consistency in quality through production.

At the time the price was justified: high-end professional; Now this is catastrophic: they pick one or two hundred dollars; my last, a superb Cherry Xtras new condition: 180 €.

this is too much happiness this stuff here: do not deprive;

A legend in its own right.

This product sounds great,
I "mattifie" to make my shots from his studio,
and Live, it is a treat

Nothing to do with the new ongoing series of the same name by TAMA output at low prices. (We do not play in the same category at all).

Mine dates from the late 70s / early 80s.
