With nearly 40 years of drum building experience, TAMA knows what drummers really want. With this in mind we sought out to design an affordable yet durable kit that retained many high-end features you'll find in our Silverstar, Superstar, and Starclassic lines. What we came up with was Imperialstar. Every aspect of the modern drum kit was exhaustively examined, reexamined, and then improved before it was accepted as part of the Imperialstar design.
Shells:100% poplar 8ply/7.5mm
Poplar wood has been used in making drum shell for over 50 years. It offers a full, warm tone combined with medium attack.
TAMA Precision Bearing Edges
A drum's bearing edge is one of the most important components in drum sound.
Our advanced edge-cutting process provides extremely precise bearing edges - which allow TAMA shells to ring openly and fully, and provide a wide range of tune ability, sensitivity and response.
Wraps-glued to the shell
Some drum companies only affix their wraps to the drum shell by taping the finish at "selected contact points". At TAMA, all of our wrapped finishes are glued to the shell 100% to eliminate warping, buzzing or lifting. This process allows the shell to resonate fully and consistently. It's more work, but it's worth it. A difference you can see and hear!
Original Small Lugs
Imperialstar lugs are 10% smaller than the lugs of our previous Swingstar Series for even greater shell resonance.
