OVERVIEW

The "Cocktail-JAM" Kit is a Tama original, in both appearance and sound. Ideal for hip-hop, jazz, intimate acoustic settings, or tight rehearsal rooms. Completely compact, this kit can easily be set up and played using a throne in much less space than a typical drum set. The "Cocktail-JAM" Kit and its hardware can be completely packed easily in just two bags, which are included with the kit, making it super portable and easy to transport to any gig.

Closed hi-hat attachment and cymbal attachment (see SKU#J04397) sold separately.

Note: Conventional bass drum heads will not fit the Cocktail-Jam bass drum. For best results, we recommend the Evans 16" EMAD Drum Head for Floor Tom Conversion.

A new-era cocktail kit based on the classic combo setup.

FEATURES
  • Drum pedal
  • Drum Bag
  • Hardware Bag
  • Configuration:
  • 16" x 6" bass drum
  • 14" x 5-1/2" floor tom
  • 10" x 5" tom tom

The Silverstar sound just got a bit more polished. Order today.

    Comments about Silverstar Cocktail-Jam 4-Piece Kit with Pedal:

    Great quality and value. It will take a little experimentation with the sound of the heads. I will change the heads but you can get good sound by using remo dampening rings...an inexpensive method. I like the adjustments and variations that are possible I will have to get used to the pedal placement. I am used to stretching my leg out and with this set up I am closer to the set. This is a minor thing. Overall, its a great set up for the money and portability is fantastic! I think you will be pleased.

      Comments about Silverstar Cocktail-Jam 4-Piece Kit with Pedal:

      I play in a 3 piece band that does small venues/bars/clubs and this kit is perfect in size and volume without sacrificing sound and Tama quality. I did replace all the heads as that was one of the recommendations on several online reviews. The Tama heads are okay but I used Evans 360s. Be careful if you replace the bass drum head, a bass drum head will not fit properly so use a 16" tom head instead if you're replacing it. Hardware is awesome. My advice, avoid the Tama add-on hardware for this kit and shop around for the hardware that will suit your needs. I play it standing up right now and I'm tall and gangly so I used a closed hi-hat arm, a cymbal arm and a percussion clamp for a jam block.

      Comments about Silverstar Cocktail-Jam 4-Piece Kit with Pedal:

      I bought this kit for its portability and the sturdiness of the hardware.
      I was willing to compromise a lot of things for that reason.
      The good.
      The snare:
      I was a little dubious about a 12x5 snare.
      I was pleasantly surprised by it. Once I got it tuned and damped just right.
      I used a remo ambassador coated on it with just a small damping pad on the underside of batter head. I found this drum is easy to over damp.
      hardware:
      Very sturdy/solid, this kit goes from bag to ready in about 8 minutes could do in 4 if I rushed.
      Rack Tom:
      This drum really has a neat sound and is quite versatile. I used a remo coated pinstripe on it.
      Bass drum pedal:
      This pedal is really easy and due to gravity helping you quite quick on the bounce.
      Bass Drum: bass drum has a surprising amount of bump for its size and depth.
      also sound is omni directional due to its configuration which is nice when playing in resturants without regular stages.
      It really shines in lower volume venues.
      Comfort:
      I was surprised how comfortable this kit was to play it doesn't look that way but it is.
      Portability:
      The kit a hihat stand, a throne and your in business.
      Cost:
      A little more expensive than the ?uestlove or other jungle kits but factor in cases and hardware and no snare stand needed it's about the same money.

      The Bad:
      Bass Drum:
      I almost always use 16"-18" bass drums now anyway so I was used to sound.
      that said it took me quite a while to get the tuning and damping right and you really have to have the floor tom mounted above it to make it sound full. In a big room it loses steam quickly.
      Bass drum Pedal bracket:
      A stupid little thing but the bracket does not lock to bass drum legs which makes moving after assembly a 2 person job. 2 bolts would have cured this.
      Dream Heads:
      I replaced all the heads except the bass drum head right away.
      hardware Bag:
      To small to fit hihat and throne. I usually use it as a sub bag to go into bigger hardware bag.

      In Closing:
      This is a superb kit for the working musician, student or the space limited drummer.
      It sounds really good it's just not got the rolling thunder of that vista lite ludwig kit with the 26" bass drum. But I can barely remember the last time I got to play a gig like that and get paid to. In the new reality of smaller clubs and lower volume venues this kit works well. I've done a few gigs with it and no complaints from anyone. And quite a few compliments and weird ?.'s about it.
      Also I got the green which almost looks black which suited me since I was looking for something lower key.
      Nothing in the bad colum warrants making this guy less than 5 stars.
      And I can actually pack it on the back of my motorcycle for cheap transport !
