With over 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. This Imperialstar kit features Black Nickel drum shell hardware over a matted black wrap finish. This finish combination provides added visual allure to Tama's popular Imperialstar drum set series.
