Dual rack toms and dual floor toms provide punch and depth to sound of this Tama Hyper Drive drum set.
The Tama Superstar Superstar SL Hyper Drive 6-Piece Drum Kit breaks through the price barrier and delivers the goods--all the sound and all the quality, features, looks and attitude you ever dreamed of.
How often have you imagined the drums you'd like to play? The sound. The professional hardware. The finish gleaming in the spotlights. Then you wake up and see what you can really afford. Kind of an unwelcome reality check--unless you've seen and played Tama Superstar. Superstar has all the killer looks and in-your-face attitude you expect from a pro rock set. But Superstar is more than just attitude.Tama Superstar drums provide all the power, projection, and durability you expect from a professional kit, but at a price that's much less than the traditional intermediate set.
Tama's highest priority feature when developing the new Superstar series was sound. Superstar shells use birch for the main inner plies for strong projection and aggressive open sound. To enhance Superstar's great looks, basswood--with its excellent consistency and regular grain patterns--is utilized for the inner plies on all Superstar shells. Precisely cut bearing edges bring out the great response and powerful resonance of these superbly crafted shells. Bass drum shells are made from 7 plies of 7mm basswood; toms and snare drum are made from 6 plies of 6mm basswood.
No other drum embodies pro features at an affordable price like Superstar. In a first for this price range, Superstar is equipped with the same zinc die-cast hoops featured on Starclassic drums. Die-cast hoops not only make tuning easier and more consistent, they also provide crisp attack, clear and resonant highs, and much more powerful rim shots.
All Superstar rack toms are fitted with the same Star-Cast Mounting System as Starclassic drums. This unique system offers total tom isolation and unhindered shell resonance without the adverse effect on tuning or complicated head changes found in less advanced suspension designs.
The Sound Bridge high-tension, low-mass lug was specifically designed for Superstar. Sound Bridge's unique structure looks much like a traditional high-tension lug, but the body of the lug "floats" over the shell to minimize shell contact so the drum can resonate to its fullest. However, Sound Bridge still offers all the benefits of the traditional high-tension lug: it offsets the tension of the batter side and bottom side heads, reduces the stress on the shell, and provides greater protection to the drum shell during transport.
All Superstar "Power Craft" drum heads ensure a great sound practically right out of the box. Batter-side heads are made of Dupont Mylar film for richer tone and greater durability. Ring mufflers on bass drum heads remove the need for extra internal muffling.
All Superstar kits come standard with upgraded Roadpro cymbal stands. The toothless Quick-Set cymbal tilter lets you adjust the angle freely and hold it in position by the friction of six metal disc plates instead of gears. You're completely free to adjust it to any angle you desire. This mechanism also has a more durable structure than the conventional gear tilter.

For those who want to step into a great drumset that will ensure years of playing satisfaction = look no further. Great set = 2 great colors = and excellent tone right out of the box. Very eye catching and great sounding. Tama: the strongest and best name in drums
I got my Scarlet Fade Hyperdrive kit today as an early Christmas present and I'm blown away! I've always owned Pearl drums, but have played on virtually every other kind out there, and these sound as good as anything I've ever played. Even with the stock heads - a little tuning and they SING! The single-ply stock batter heads won't hold up for long, but I'm loving the sound in the mean time. The fade finish is as good as anything I've seen on higher-end kits, and it is flawless. The black nickel hardware is the finishing touch that puts this above and beyond anything else! Great Job Tama!
