Overview

TAMA Imperialstar drum sets are an industry standard for beginning drummers who want a high-quality kit at an excellent value. Add the included pack of Meinl HSC brass cymbals, and the result is a complete name-brand set any new player can be proud of. TAMA’s philosophy is that the aspiring drummer realizes maximum enjoyment and personal fulfillment with a fully functional, highly durable, quality-sounding drum set and cymbals. This is the foundation for TAMA, and they designed Imperialstar to be a proven value that is uncommon in the world of today’s “entry-level” drum set category.

For TAMA, sound and durability go hand-in-hand. Imperialstar delivers on both accounts. 100% poplar 6-ply, 8 mm shells achieve full, deep sounds that include TAMA’s precision bearing edges for efficient sound transfer from drumhead to shell. The wrap finishes are fully adhered to the shell using a gluing process (not double-sided tape) to produce a strong bond that allows the shell and wrap to fully resonate as one. Ultra-low-mass lugs further enable toms and floor toms to reach their full, rich tones. TAMA believes good cymbals are critical, so they have collaborated with Meinl on the cymbal setup, adding full-sized hi-hats, crash and ride from Meinl’s HCS line. These cymbals produce clean sonic separation and are highly durable to allow full dynamic exploration.

TAMA has a glowing reputation for making the highest-grade hardware in the industry. TAMA brings their hardware expertise to Imperialstar by offering a super sturdy and highly adjustable ball/socket 10.5 mm double tom holder with memory locks, a height-adjustable padded throne and double-braced, 3-tiered cymbal stands that combine stability with full height adjustment and positioning. The bass drum pedal and hi-hat stand are critical to any drummer’s expression, therefore TAMA includes a kick drum pedal that has an underside rock plate for stability, along with independent tension and beater-angle adjustments to allow drummers to find their desired bass drum feel. The double-braced hi-hat stand assures stability and includes a grip clutch for prolonged and secure performance, along with seat-cup angle adjustment for customized cymbal feel.

This special "blacked out" version of Imperialstar is finished in matte black. With matching black nickel hoops and lugs, this sleek look offers a rare level of style for drummers just starting out.
