OVERVIEW

Your dream starts here.

This Tama Imperialstar 6-piece Standard Drum Set is the most affordable Tama drum kit ever to incorporate so many high-end features.

With over 40 years of experience, Tama knows what drummers really want. Which is why, no matter how long you've been playing the drums, no matter what budget you have to work with, Tama has the set you need, want, and can afford. Every aspect of the modern drum kit was exhaustively examined and reexamined and then improved before it was accepted as part of the Imperialstar design. Which is why, if you start playing Imperialstar now as a beginner, you'll still enjoy playing it when you've achieved pro-status. That's how good these groundbreaking drums are.

Only Tama Imperialstar comes with a complete set of genuine Meinl HCS cymbals. These high-quality brass cymbals are made in Germany and are sonically matched so they sound great together. They are even lathed for a more refined tonal character. The set includes 14" hi-hats, 16" crash and an 20" ride cymbal.

Tama Drum Shells:100% poplar 6-ply/7.5mm
Poplar wood has been used in making drum shells for over 50 years. It offers a full, warm tone combined with medium attack.

Precise Bearing Edges
A drum's bearing edge is one of the most important components in drum sound. Tama's advanced edge-cutting process provides extremely precise bearing edges-which allow Tama shells to ring openly and fully, and provide a wide range of tuneability, sensitivity, and response.

100% Glued Finishes
Some drum companies only affix their wraps to the drum shell by taping the finish at "selected contact points." At Tama, all 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 Tama feels the extra effort is worth it, for a difference you can see and hear.

Original Small Lugs
Imperialstar lugs are 10% smaller than the lugs of Tama's previous Swingstar Series for even greater shell resonance.

Drumheads
Batter-side heads are made of clear 250 microns-thick film for richer tone and greater durability. Ring mufflers on bass drum heads remove the need for additional internal muffling.

Accu-Tune Bass Drum Hoops
A special-formulation hi-tech material offers lighter weight and faster, more stable, tuning than traditional metal hoops. In addition, since Accu-Tune hoops use tension bolts instead of clawhooks and T-rods, head changes and packing up are a breeze.

Spur Brackets
Imperialstar spur bracket features the same look and style as Tama's high-end Starclassic drums and provides maximum durability and stability.

Tom Holder
Tama L-Rod and Omnisphere tom holder systems have received acclaim from drummers for over 25 years. These systems offer easy positioning, maximum flexibility, stability, and greater sound than standard designs which penetrate the shell interior and can inhibit resonance.

Tom Brackets
The eye-bolt structure is rock solid, holding the toms in place securely.

        Comments about Tama Imperialstar 6-Piece Drum Set with Cymbals:

        Great set to play any time, any style. Tama always does a great job putting together a well-rounded set, and the Imperialstar 6 piece kit further proves it to me. Whether this set or a different one, always go with Tama. In terms of constructing the set, there were no setbacks whatsoever and any instructions/diagrams needed were clear. Opposed to other instrument constructing/tuning nightmares I've had in the past, this set gave me no troubles and I actually very much enjoyed seeing my set come together. It's enjoyable to me when you can tell that each and every part of the set is made with truly high quality materials and crafted with the Tama expertise. Once set up and tuned, I realized that this set has great overall sound in every aspect - enough said about that, it just has an excellent, pure sound. For weeks I had been playing my friend's pretty mediocre set in a room with fantastic acoustics, but now I have my own Imperialstar and its unfortunately in a room with pretty bad acoustics... However, this set literally sounds 10 times better, hands down. I knew my Tama drum heads would satisfy, as always, but I had never used Meinl cymbals before. I actually really like Meinl now, they also do a solid job in my opinion, I love my ride especially. Overall, I really have nothing negative to say about Tama's imperialstar set. I was originally planning to spend a little less than what I did on this set, but in the end I am so glad I spent the extra buck.. Trust me, it really makes a big difference and it's so worth it, and at the same time it's not too high of a price either. It's more than worth the price. Anyway, I highly, highly recommend this set to anyone that loves playing a quality drum set, you will absolutely not be disappointed!

        Comments about Tama Imperialstar 6-Piece Drum Set with Cymbals:

        I bought this kit because I have wanted to start drumming my whole life, guitars were just less expensive. I have played around on all my bands drummers kits for years but don't have a lot of experience. This kit, for the price is an amazing deal!

        The hardware seems to be sturdy, the shells are made well and look great in the hairline black I chose. The snare and two rack toms were tuned pretty good out of the box. I just tuned the snare up a bit and it sounded perfect. The snare and tom heads are not the best but they sound just fine. The Iron Cobra 200 was a nice addition but our drummer gave me his Pearl double kick so I didn't need it.

        The only real drawback to this kit is the crash. It just sounds cheap and terrible. It is fine for the time being, but you will definitely want to upgrade when you can. The hi-hat sounds pretty good I must say and the ride sounds darn good too. The throne is kinda cheap but it works just fine.

        Bottom line, this kit is awesome for the price!
