The Tama Imperialstar is a great kit for players of all ages and skill levels. This kit also comes complete with stands and cymbals, making it the perfect starter set.

With over 40 years in the business, Tama knows exactly what drummers want. A quality kit that isn't going to put them in the poor house. Keeping this in mind, Tama built the Imperialstar to deliver outstanding tonal quality at a price anyone can afford. Seriously, this may be the most affordable drum set to ever incorporate so many high-end features. Every aspect of these drums was meticulously examined, reexamined, and then improved upon before it was considered worthy of carrying the Tama name. This is exactly why you can enjoy these drums as a complete novice or a seasoned pro. That's how good they really are.

This kit was designed to fit the needs of today's players. The modern sizes give these drums a wider tuning range and tonal color that is incredible versatile. The 6-ply, 7.5mm, 100% Poplar drum shells deliver a full, warm tone with a medium attack and a bold, loud personality. These drums also have precision cut bearing edges which allow them resonate fully while providing a wide tuning range and incredible response. The size of these drums are

  • 18"x22" bass drum
  • 5-1/2"x14" snare
  • 8”x10”
  • 9"x12" tom
  • 14"x16" floor tom

These drums also feature fully glued finishes which eliminates warping, buzzing or lifting. This process takes more work, but allows the shell to resonate fully and consistently and makes and audible difference. Another way Tama improves the tone and resonance of these drums is with their lug design. The Imperialstar lugs are 10% smaller than those of their previous kits. This decreases the amount of weight on the shell and allows it to really breathe.

Tama has made this already excellent kit even better by upgrading to Meinl "HCS" cymbals. These cymbals have excellent stick definition and a lively sound. The heavier weights and larger bells of these new cymbals offer brighter sounds, higher pitch and cut way more than their predecessors. This kit includes a pair of 14" hi-hats, a 16" crash, and a 20" ride.

As if all of this wasn't enough, this kit also comes with a full set of Stage Master double-braced stands. This includes a HS30W snare stand, HH35W hi hat stand, HC32W cymbal stand, HC33BW boom cymbal stand, and a HT25 drum throne. To top it off, this pedal features an Iron Cobra 200 bass drum pedal

The Tama Iron Cobra 200 is a great variation of everybody’s favorite pedal. This single chain driven pedal has many of the same features you’ve come to know and love about the original Iron Cobra. It features the same power glide cam, para clamp, dual sided beater, adjustable beater angle, adjustable spring tension and spring tight. The power glide cam is Tama’s most popular cam design. This gives you unrivaled speed and power as well as an incredibly smooth stroke. The para clamp provides rock solid stability that guarantees to hold up for even the heaviest hitters. The dual sided beater allows you to choose between the heavy, sharp attach of a hard plastic beater or the warmer, open tones of a felt beater. The adjustable beater angle really allows you to set this pedal up any way you want. The adjustable spring tension and spring tight locking mechanism guarantee precise and stable settings.

          Comments about Tama Imperialstar IP52KC 5-Piece Drum Set w/ Hardware & Cymbals:

          This is the best drumset on the market for a beginning student. Its affordable without breaking the bank. This kit comes with cymbals and hardware, which is a plus. Most drumsets don't come with hardware or cymbals, so that is usually sold separately. This drumset sounds great for en entry level drumset.

              Love this kit! I love the fact that it comes with not just two but three Meinl cymbals. The hardware is solid and the upgrade to the Iron cobra 200 is a nice detail. Tama has also really bumped up the quality of the shell finishes! I am a staff reviewer for Sam Ash.

The Imperialstar totally blows away any entry level drum kit on the market. A great value! I'm a sales associate at Sam Ash Music Ontario.

                    This is a great mid level kit. It comes with everything you need to get started. Comes with the 5 drums, all hardware and cymbals. The cymbals are not the best but if you are upgrading over something cheaper or this is your first kit, they will do just fine. The poplar shells will have a nice warm sound, I would just recommend upgrading the drum heads. This is a great kit for your home, a church or a school. The fact that it comes with all the hardware and cymbals means that anyone can purchase this without too much hassle of having to know all the details.

                    This drum set is the perfect kit for the beginning drummer. The overall quality is very good. Really high quality shells and hardware, This stuff is built to last. The cymbals included with the kit are from a highly respected cymbal manufacturer. Other drum sets at this price point don't come with "real" cymbals. Overall, it's a great beginner package.
