About Tama Drums

So how did Tama get to be such a big name in the drum industry? It all started in 1965 when parent company Hoshino Gakki manufactured its first drum set under the name Star Drums. After nearly a decade of success, Hoshino began to sell and market its kits under the Tama brand in 1974.

From there, it’s been decades of steady growth and constant innovation, constantly seeking to improve both the drum sets themselves and their associated hardware. The Tama brand became nearly synonymous with improvement, leading the charge for better standards that today’s musicians might take for granted.

For beginners, take a look at the classic Imperialstar, which offers beginners a chance to get comfortable before moving to bigger kits. Already a veteran with the sticks? Check out Tama’s impressive snare drums, including a variety of limited and signature edition shells.

It’s nearly impossible to go wrong with a Tama drum set. The dedication to quality sound could easily justify a higher price tag, but Tama is also dedicated to providing affordable kits to music lovers of all ages and experience.
