Easy to transport, ready to play, and ideal for small clubs or street musicians.

With a tight footprint and Tama quality, the Silverstar Metro-JAM is a perfect drum set for the active urban percussionist clinging to the acoustic realm. Using proven materials and the proprietary mounting hardware, Tama has extracted the best possible tone out of the smallest possible setup.

With a baseline of 100% birch shells and the classic Star-Mount system, the drums churn out a punchy attack with dry resonance. The shells are crowned with triple-flanged die-cast hoops for sharp, cutting rimshots, while low-mass lugs ensure a low profile and reliable tune. The drums are also finished with a glue and tape-free wrap to ensure maximum sonic output.

Comments about Tama Silverstar Metro Jam 4-Piece Shell Pack:

Bass drum lift is not removable. Makes it hard and more expensive to find a suitable carrying bag. Had to go to a 16 x 20.

    Comments about Tama Silverstar Metro Jam 4-Piece Shell Pack:

    Compared to the Ludwig ?uestlove Breakbeats Kit, the Tama Metro Jam Kit blows the Ludwigs out of the water. The Tama kit is the same price and made from better wood, and has much higher-quality hardware. (And this from a die-hard Ludwig user!)

    The sound of the birch shells are rich and resonant, the 16" bass drum sounds surprisingly fat and thumping, the 10" rack tom sings, and the 13" floor tom easily sounds as deep as a 14" model.

    The hardware on the drums is the same as the rest of the Tama SilverStar line...the tom mount is excellent, with a receiver for a Tama cymbal arm (sold separately). The stock heads are not great, but serviceable. I replaced the kick batter head with a Remo PowerStroke 3 and it made ALL the difference in the world. I replaced the stock rack tom and floor tom heads with Evans G2 coated heads(2-ply ), and the drums just sang. REALLY deep sounds!

    The bass drum lift works great (much better than the Ludwig ?uestlove kit), and easily makes it possible for your bass drum beater to hit dead center (or near dead-center) of the drum. The floor tom legs are shorter than you would normally see on a kit, but that definitely reduces weight when transporting the set. I sit higher than most drummers, and the tom legs are just a tiny bit shorter than I prefer, but not enough to bother me.

    Again, hardware is great, shells are great, size and value-for-money is excellent. I have used this kit in small café gigs to screaming punk rock clubs and the sound is incredible.

    Miked, the kit explodes! I had a sound guy laughing as I set this kit up in a large (500 capacity) music hall for a high-energy loud rock'n'roll gig. He said, "What are you doing with those TOYS?!" He miked them up, and did a quick sound check on the kit, and then said, "God, that bass drum RULES! It sounds like a little cannon!" Enough said.
