With more than four decades of drum building experience, Tama knows what drummers really want.

With this in mind, they designed the award-winning Imperialstar line as an affordable, yet durable kit that contains many of the high-end features you'll find in our upper lines. The Stage Master hardware delivers functionality, stability and durability you won’t find anywhere else in this price range. 100% Poplar 8ply shells produce a full, warm and medium attack. Tama Precision Bearing Edges allow the drums to ring openly, expand tuning range, and add sensitivity and response. Tama's Quick-Set Cymbal Mate clips are an added plus with the Meinl HCS Cymbals; just the final touch to a complete drumset from Tama.

100% Poplar and Precision Bearing Edges
Poplar wood has been used in making drum shell for over 50 years. It offers a full, warm tone combined with medium attack. A drum's bearing edge is one of the most important components in drum sound. Advanced edge-cutting process provides extremely precise bearing edges - which allow Tama shells to ring openly and fully, and provide a wide range of tune ability, sensitivity and response.

Black Nickel Hardware
Black Nickel hardware opens up a broader selection of finishes in this price range. Blacked Out Black, Vintage Red and Sugar White finishes all come standard with Black Nickel hardware, while other available finishes come with Chrome hardware. Imperialstar lugs are 10% smaller than the lugs of our previous Swingstar Series for even greater shell resonance.

Accu-Tune Bass Drum Hoops
A special formulation hi-tech material offers lighter weight, and faster, more stable tuning than traditional metal hoops. In addition, since Accu-Tune hoops use tension bolts instead of clawhooks and T-rods, head changes and packing up are a breeze.
