  • Tama Superstar

    Hey all
    im very excited because i may be getting a tama superstar (with 24" kick!)
    anyone know anything about these kits, post here.
    Ive already seen the tama website so i know they were stopped in 1986.
    But any other information would be great, ever played one?

        Played 'em for years. Strongest drums I have ever known. Sounds warm but dry. Project like a cannonball !

        You said "may be getting". If you do get them, you will not be sorry !!

          I have a set of Superstars. Natural/clear lacquer finish. 24" kick, 12", 14" rack toms,
          16" floor tom. I have a Pearl free floating brass snare. 14" x 6.5" I believe all Superstars
          are birch shells. I like my set. They sound great, nice and deep. I'll never part with them. Good luck

            Yes, I currently have some Tama Superstar`s that I use
            along with my Artstar Cordia kit. The Superstar`s that I have
            are: 6, 8, 10, 12 inch concert toms, 13 and 14 inch timbales
            and a 20 and 22 inch gong bass drums, ALL in Super Mahogany.
            They sound GREAT!

              Hey artstar, how closely does the Super mahogany match the cordia finish on the artstars?

              Thanx

                  Rockstars? No way. Superstars were there top end kits for awhile. They're very nice.

                    Okay, they do come really close, however the Super Mahogany
                    is a soild stain, whereas the Cordia woodgrain, have alot
                    of different colors like brown, red, orange, yellow, even
                    a little white and black mixed in, however from at least 5 feet
                    away, they do appear to look exact, to the untrained eye.

                          **************** you slim j
                          this thread must be a year old so i have grown a bit
                          but that kit would have solved all my drum gear problems
                          and the woman lied to me i wouldve picked it up straight away but she said she had to go away for a few days
                          so im still playing on my swingstar with destroyed hihats as my only cymbals, a weak beater, and busted skins (first layer).
                          i dont think my post was childish i missed out on a great opportunity and i spent two days being pretty sure it would be mine
                          kiss my ass dude
