Nashville NAMM saw the debut of a new fade Rockstar Custom fade finish, Custom Purple pHaze. "The suggestion in our Nashville NAMM show newsletter, that drummers will be kissing the sky over our new Custom Purple pHaze finish, is perhaps overstated," said Paul Specht of Tama Communications, referring to the psychedelic lyrics from the song that inspired the finish. "But there's no question that our fade finishes have been very well received by players and drum shops and we think this one will, too."

Rockstar Custom drums feature 9mm, 7ply (1 ply basswood, 5 plies Philippine mahogany, 1 ply basswood) shells with the same strong, cross laminated, staggered seam construction of Tama's most expensive drums. For unrestrained shell resonance, Rockstar Custom rack toms are mounted with Tama's Star-Cast free suspension system.
