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 '70s, while the ingenious ­Star-Mount system eclipses everything in its class-all at a surprisingly affordable price.

Comments about TAMA Superstar Classic Custom 7-Piece Shell Pack:

This kit has nearly everything one could want from a set in this price range. The shells are beautiful and well made. The hardware is rock solid and versatile. The drums have a fairly wide tuning range, so they will work for hard rock or jazz. To truly appreciate the drums you will need to dump the stock batter heads on the toms. I replaced them with Evans G2 coated and the drums sound fantastic! For the price, unbelievable.

I highly recommend these drums.

    Comments about TAMA Superstar Classic Custom 7-Piece Shell Pack:

    I got this outstanding kit in the blue lacquer. This thing is awesome. This was my second kit and my first Tama and I'm really impressed. I seen it while lookin inside guitar center and fell in love with the color. Then I seen the price. for a 7 piece Tama it's one heck of a deal. You can't hardly find kits this big for low prices. I'm really impressed with the way the factory heads sounded also. I Won't change theme until needed. If you got money and want this kit buy it you should get it. It's one of the best deals I've seen.

          If you like the sound of a thin shell and maple, then you'll love these drums. I would suggest replacing the factory heads right from the start. Definitely a two ply is needed, but they tune well and are fun to play

              I had this kit for about 2 months now and this kit is amazing from the look all the way up to the sound, my only complaint is the Tom legs aren't long enough for how high I sit so I had to buy some other legs but from that this kit is near perfect.

                42 years with the same excellent Rogers set, I felt ready for a technology change. After shopping for several months it was very clear that this set in transparent blue couldn't be beat--sorry for the bad pun! The value proposition was very strong.

                        Good purchase for me. Have played many years in all types of scenarios and music genres. Needed a kit I could justify the cost while playing a week-end or two a month. Changed all heads, except the bass drum, trying to get a dark fat sound on the toms (which I did). The sound of the toms surprised me a bit, they sound just as good and probably better and some other higher end drums I've owned. The weakest link would be the snare, although it is totally adequate and may improve with a different reso head than I purchased. Below is the kit setup and changes. Also the Mahogany Burst, is really very nice. Looks much better than the pics you see. Overall, very pleased.
