With nearly 40 years of drum building experience, TAMA knows what drummers really want. Which is why TAMA has the set you need, want, and can afford no matter how long you've been playing drums or what budget you have to work with. TAMA launched the most affordable kit to ever incorporate so many high-end features - Imperialstar. Every aspect of the modern drum kit was exhaustively examined, reexamined, and then improved before it was accepted as part of the Imperialstar design.
That's why, if you start playing Imperialstar drums now as a beginner, you'll still be enjoying them when you've achieved pro status.
Poplar wood has been used in making drum shell for over 50 years. It offers a full, warm tone combined with medium attack.
A drum's bearing edge is one of the most important components in drum sound.
Our advanced edge-cutting process provides extremely precise bearing edges - which allow TAMA shells to ring openly and fully, and provide a wide range of tune ability, sensitivity and response.
Some drum companies only affix their wraps to the drum shell by taping the finish at "selected contact points". At TAMA, all of our wrapped finishes are glued to the shell 100% to eliminate warping, buzzing or lifting. This process allows the shell to resonate fully and consistently. It's more work, but it's worth it. A difference you can see and hear!
Imperialstar hardware is heavily influenced by our high-end "Roadpro" hardware series. These stands provide stability, ease-of-use, and durability at an affordable price.
Imperialstar all-in-one "READY-TO-ROCK" packages not only have everything you need to rock, you'll rock better with HCS genuine brass cymbals from Meinl®, the cymbal maker of choice for many of today's new generation drummers.
