DescriptionBut why is the Imperialstar the best entry-level kit ever? Because everything is upgraded, and the price is still entry-level! Everything else – the killer matching wood snare drum, the German-made, genuine brass cymbals, the powerful, all-poplar shells, the low-mass lugs, the HP30 bass pedal – says Imperialstar defines a whole new class of drums. Check out the vast list of upgraded Imperialstar features shown here. Then check out the kit yourself. Whether you're looking for a kit for home recording, rehearsing or gigging, or you're just getting started playing, we dare you to find a better set with better features for the price. Plus it includes an Instructional DVD.
You're serious about drums. Tama's serious. That's why Imperialstar isn't a new name on an old design. Even the state-of-the art drum making facility where Imperialstars are created is completely new. Every aspect of Imperialstar was exhaustively examined, re-examined and rethought before it was allowed to be part of the final Imperialstar design.
Shells: 100% poplar 6ply 7.5mm
Poplar wood has been used in making drum shell for over 50 years. It offers a full, warm tone combined with medium attack. (Except metal snare drum)
Precise Bearing Edges
A drum's bearing edge is one of the most important components in drum sound.
Tama's advanced edge-cutting process provides extremely precise bearing edges - which allow their shells to ring openly and fully, and provide a wide range of tune ability, sensitivity and response.
100% Glued Finishes
Some drum companies only affix their wraps to the drum shell by taping the finish at "selected contact points". At Tama, all of the wrapped finishes are glued to the shell 100% to eliminate warping, buzzing or lifting. This process allows the shell to resonate fully and consistently. It's more work, but it's worth it. A difference you can see and hear!
FREE Meinl HCS Cymbals
Imperial star all-in-one packages not only have everything you need to rock, you'll rock better with HCS genuine brass cymbals from Meinl. It's time to raise the bar yet another notch! Meinl is the cymbal maker of choice for many of today's new generation drummers. The heavier weights and larger bells of these new cymbals offer brighter sounds, higher pitch and more cut than their predecessors. Check out the 20 inch ride cymbal's bell, which has absolutely amazing cut! The hammer marks and brilliant finish provide an appearance that is as impressive and professional as the sound.
Imperial star lugs are 10% smaller than the lugs of our previous Swingstar Series for even greater shell resonance. With Imperialstar, dead and lifeless drum sounds are a thing of the past.
Batter side heads are made of clear Dupont Mylar film (250 microns thick) for richer tone and greater durability. Ring mufflers on bass drum heads remove the need for additional internal muffling.
Accu-Tune Bass Drum Hoop
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.
Imperial star spur bracket features the same look and style as our high-end Starclassic drums and provides maximum durability and stability.
Tama L-Rod and Omni sphere tom holder systems have received acclaim from drummers for over 25 years. These systems offer easy positioning, maximum flexibility, stability and greater sound than standard designs which penetrate the shell interior and can inhibit resonance.
The eye-bolt structure is rock solid, holding the toms in place securely.
Tama HC32W Stage Master Straight Cymbal Stand has everything you need in a durable cymbal stand. Its noiseless tubing and double braced leg design make it a perfect stand for stage or studio use.
Boom / Straight convertible Tilter (HC33BW)
If there's no room for a boom, simply convert to a straight stand! The boom arm stores neatly inside the upper tube.
Snare Stand HS30W
The Tama HS30W features a Universal Gearless Tilter. The universal tilter securely holds its position with metal-plate friction instead of traditional gears so you can adjust it to hundreds of positions with ease.
Hi-hat Stand HH35W Swivel Foot
Since the foot pedal can be rotated around the tripod base, the Swivel Foot feature greatly expands floor space and set-up flexibility.
Hi-hat Stand HH35W Safety bottom Seat
The scooped Safety Seat adds more stability to the bottom cymbal and can be adjusted for changes in hi-hat tone. Since the felt is fixed to the seat, it can't be lost during transport. You can finally get rid of those extra hi-hat cymbal felts.
Drum Pedal HP30 Spring Tension Adjustment
Inspired by Iron Cobra's Spring Tight feature, this specially shaped nut prevents the spring unit from loosening.
Universal height adjustment: Unlike other thrones in this price range, Tama's offers more height adjustment flexibility. Others use a bolt and nut through pre-set holes in the center tube. Seat Top: This 13-inch diameter seat is larger & more comfortable than the previous Swingstar seat.
With over 40 years of experience, Tama knows what drummers really want. Which is why Tama has the set you need, want, and can afford no matter how long you've been playing drums or what budget you have to work with.
