TAMA Imperialstar Overview
Finished in blacked out black with black nickel hardware, the “ready-to-rock” TAMA Imperialstar is an entry-level yet sophisticated drum set which combines five drums, all necessary hardware stands, kick pedal, throne, and cymbals to give you all you need to play the gig. It offers a comfortable and musical playing experience to students and experienced drummers alike, whether laying down heavy-metal, funk, hip-hop, jazz grooves, and more.
The Imperialstar’s 8-ply / 7.5mm shells are made of poplar wood, known throughout drum circles for its full, warm tone and medium attack. Precision bearing edges, small lugs, and glued wrap finishes work together to allow the shells to resonate openly and fully, without buzzing. The kit features an 18 x 22″ bass drum which delivers deep low-end with plenty of punch.
The Imperialstar comes with a Meinl cymbal pack which includes hi-hats, a ride, and a crash. The HP200P Iron Cobra kick pedal provides a fast and powerful action, while the complete set of Stage Master hardware stands lets you position your toms and cymbals to best fit your playing style.
