• TAMA Imperialstar 8-Piece Drum Set in Black Nickel Hardware with Meinl HCS Cymbals Blacked Out Black
Overview

With more than four decades of drum building experience, TAMA knows what drummers really want. With this in mind, Tama has again applied their experience and innovation to improve their award-winning Imperialstar line. Imperialstar continues to be the undisputed entry-level kit standard due to Tama's time-tested consistency, excellent sounding shells, ergonomic and durable hardware and full set of Meinl HCS cymbals. Tama's new Stage Master 40 series hardware adds further improvement and distinction to Imperialstar.

The 40 series features a redesigned and sleek double-braced tripod design that follows the design line of Tama's higher end hardware. All stands also feature an updated die cast collar joint that securely locks-in height positioning and the cymbal stands feature Tama's Quick-Set Cymbal Mate for efficient ease of cymbal set up. Tama's HP200P is included with pro features including sold base plate, chain drive, Power Glide Cam, dual-side beater and separate spring tension and beater angle adjustment. To complete the hardware set-up, Tama includes a comfortable, height-adjustable throne. 

Tama has partnered with Meinl cymbals to offer a full size of HCS series cymbals - 20" ride, 16" crash and 14" hi-hats. These cymbals allow the developing drummer to acquire a sense of musicality and offer a total drum set experience. 

The heart of the kit lies in the Tama's shell specification. All shells are 6-ply 7.5 mm 100% Poplar and cut with Tama's precision bearing edges for 100% drum head to shell vibration transfer and sensitive response. All shells include Tama durable wraps that are 100% bonded to the shell with glue to prevent the wrap from warping for lifting. 

Tama has applied their collective drum making expertise to add components that further add value to this kit and give it the feel and performance of a professional kit. The slick Omnisphere L-Rod tom holder is a ball/socket rotational design, which allows the toms to be positioned with flexibility and security. The L-Rods include memory locks and hold the tom without any metal support penetrating the tom shell, which helps to optimize drum tone. Tama’s Accu-Tune bass drum hoops provide excellent tuning stability and durability. The bass drum spur brackets are adjustable and include spur tips that can be recessed into a nylon housing when needed. Tama uses a large, smooth wing nut throughout the kit that are easy to turn and easy on the fingers, a small but important detail.
