Overview

­For nearly forty years the Superstar name has stood for groundbreaking design, ­superior build quality, sterling tone, and clear projection. Now Tama introduces this ­legendary kit in its most sonically aggressive persona yet¦featuring 100% maple ­shells. Thinner and livelier than ever, the Tama designers have dialed in the perfect ­combination of sensitivity and high-end "cut."

­Drawing on Superstar of the past, its classic Tama T-shape badge and streamlined ­low-mass single lugs point to the simpler state of art of the 70's, while the ingenious ­Star-Mount system eclipses everything in its class-all at a surprisingly affordable price.

this drum set is not worth the money i spent on it!!

      Comments about Tama Superstar Classic 7-Piece Shell Pack:

      first off this drum set looks great the indago sparkle looks amazing but the sound of it is less then desirable. Starting with the snare the snare is garbage i have been tuning it for a couple days and it still has this awful ring and over tones plus the bottom hoop was bent. the toms well i like the hard ware the toms sit on but they sound no different to my $350 pdp set. Maybe trying new skins will help but if i am spending over twice as much for a drum set specially being a tama it should sound better then a $350 pdp set. overall this drum set looks good having the extra 2 drums is nice but out of the box does not deliver on the sound i was hoping it would have.

      Comments about Tama Superstar Classic 7-Piece Shell Pack:

      Bought my kit in Transparent Blue lacquer and love it!
      Out of the box, the floor toms and the snare were the most challenging to bring into tune. I felt there was too much ring and overtone, but Aquarian Studio Rings and more adjustments straightened everything out.
      I had never seen this finish before, but do manage to get a lot of compliments on it. You can see the grain of the wood coming thru the lacquer, which really looks cool.
      Hardware is typical Tama...bullet proof!

          Comments about Tama Superstar Classic 7-Piece Shell Pack:

          The only other contender to the Superstar Classic for all maple drums that won't break the bank is the Pearl Decade Maple. Upon comparing the two, I found Tama to have better hardware, better finish, and just an overall better quality.

          Advice: get rid of the stock Tama heads. I sold them brand new on Craigslist and got $100 for them, so essentially lowered the kit price by $100. Recommend you buy this set during one of Guitar Center's sales or trade some gear to get 15% off. The kit can be had for so cheap if you do this. Spend some dollars and put some good heads on. That's key. My recommendations are either Remo or Evans. I am personally using Remo Clear Emperor on all tom tops and Remo Clear Ambassador on all tom bottoms. I'm using Coated Controlled Sound reverse black dot on snare top and Ambassador Hazy Snare Side on bottom. For bass pedal side, I am using Powerstroke 3 clear and on resonant side, I'm actually using the black Tama head as it looks best. Installed a Kickport in Granite color (matches perfect). I put in the Kickpro pillow inside and a black Evans EQ double bass patch for my kick beater.

          I'm using Tama Iron Cobra 900 Series Powerglide pedals, Iron Cobra 900 series hi-hat stand, the Cobra Clutch, Tama 1st Chair Ergo Rider Throne, and Tama cymbal stands. Highly recommend the Ahead Armor drum mat (I got the huge one), their rolling cymbal bag, their deluxe stick bag, and their padded drum cases.

          Star-mount hardware for toms is great. Not bulky and doesn't seem to alter the drum sound. Easy to adjust and rock solid.

          The Midnight Gold Sparkle needs to be seen in person as the pictures don't do it justice. It's like a charcoal filled with silver sparkles. Best scheme I've seen to be honest for a wrap. Looks mean, solid, and high-end.

          I ordered another rack tom, 13x10, another bass drum 22x18, and another floor tom 18x16 so that my kit is massive.

          Sound is excellent with good heads and knowing how to tune. Highly recommend the Tune-Bot.

                  Comments about Tama Superstar Classic 7-Piece Shell Pack:

                  I absolutely love this set. Between me and a friend of mine, we have had a lot of different kind of drum sets over the years, and this Superstar kit is right up there as one of the best ones. I play a lot of different types of music and these drums fit with all of them, they are very versatile. I didn't use the factory heads that came with them so I can't speak to how they sound right out of the box, but with better heads and a good tuning job, they sound great. They are made really well and can handle a beating. I saw one review on here saying how bad they are, I don't know what that person is talking about, they must not know much about drums, I have been playing for more than 25 years and I can assure you, this is a great kit, especially for the price. I was lucky enough to find a matching bass drum to this kit (a one in a million chance) at a great price to make it a double bass kit, and it's perfect. I have the midnight gold sparkle finish and it looks pretty good. But overall, I would definitely recommend this kit. If you're a beginner, maybe try something smaller and less money, but if you have been playing a while or are in a band, definitely a great set.

                    I brought this set in March 17. I was going to spend money on Remo heads. I tried the Power Craft 2 heads it came with. Wow! Awesome sound! Very happy indeed!
