OVERVIEW

Your funk or fusion dream starts here.

The Tama Imperialstar 5-piece Hyper-Drive Drum Set offers a unique combination of traditional and forward-thinking drum sizes for sonic power and enhanced clarity, unparalleled setup flexibility, and increased visibility from behind the kit.

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.

Hyper-Drive Toms
Hyper-Drive is the latest concept for tom depths. The shallow depths of these toms offer enhanced attack for a punchy sound with quick response. Furthermore, these sizes allow you to position the rack toms much lower, so you can get them just where you want.

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.

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.

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

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.

This package also includes a full Tama hardware pack and a 4-piece Meinl cymbal pack.

Comments about Tama Imperialstar Hyper-Drive Limited Edition 5-Piece Drum Set:

The set is exceptional, especially for the price. I was able to make it sound good with some tuning and new heads. The shallower toms make it very playable.

However, the stock cymbals weren't great. The splash, ride ,and hi-hat were decent. I probably won't replace them for a while. The crash is pretty bad, though. I'm looking to replace it.

      Comments about Tama Imperialstar Hyper-Drive Limited Edition 5-Piece Drum Set:

      The price on this kit is excellent, still cannot believe it included everything. This is the value of the year for an entry lvl kit, it has good Tama quality, sounds great with a little sanding of the shells and tuning. Hardware is better than most at this price range. Cymbals are fine. I have yet to find anything wrong. I highly recommend this set for an all in one, practice, or entry set. Also Musicians Friend was great to deal with.

        Comments about Tama Imperialstar Hyper-Drive Limited Edition 5-Piece Drum Set:

        This is a luxury beginners set. My instructor, a professional drummer was very impressed. Hardware was pro quality and the drums tuned nicely. The snare is actually a 14" with great sound. the cynmbals are much better than I expected them to be. While the sound of the hi-hat is not awesome, it is very usable and more than adequate for anyone but a pro.

            Comments about Tama Imperialstar Hyper-Drive Limited Edition 5-Piece Drum Set:

            This is my first kit and I love it. There are a few problems with it. After putting new heads on the snare, I just could not tune it. Also, I'm not a big fan of the hihat stand, the bottom hi hat won't sit flat for me. Otherwise its been an amazing instrument for me.
