Tama returns to its roots with its all-birch-shell Silverstar. And in this new age of frugality, the drum world has taken notice. “Powerful”, “Well-built”, “Versatile”, “Half the price the thought they would cost!” are some of the comments made by pro drummers. The Silverstar line is the perfect example of Tama being always able to deliver extraordinary quality at a reasonable price. 100% first quality birch shells, hardened steel triple-flanged hoops and an improved Star-Mount suspension system with a sliding tom holder. Even in tight times, Tama makes dreams come true.

Here are the important features:

• All Birch Shells: Carefully selected birch materials are utilized for the Silverstar 6-ply, 6mm shells (the bass drum is 7-ply, 7mm). Tama uses the same manufacturing process and methods to create Silverstar that they use to build their high-end drums. The result is an instrument that exhibits a powerful sound, a rich tone and a warm resonance usually found in more expensive drums.

• New Star-Mount System for mounting the toms: The new Star-Mount System was designed to increase the resonance of the drums. Four minimal contact points suspend the drum without touching the shell and provide maximum tone and resonance.

• Swiveling Eye Bolts: The tom brackets feature eyebolts that swivel from side to side so they are never in the way when you reposition your toms.

• Slide-able Tom Holder: The MTH905N double tom holder makes it possible to move your toms forward or backward simply by using a drum key to adjust the locking tension bolt. Tama is known for their extremely rugged and precisely adjustable double tom holders.

• New Low-Mass Lugs: Silverstar drums feature newly designed separate lugs. Because these new lugs make less contact with the surface of the shell, the drums resound more freely and clearly.

TAMA has researched and worked very hard to bring the best sound and qualities of their professional drum set lines to a more affordable drum set and has succeeded brilliantly with the Silverstar line. Sam Ash Direct also features 6-piece and 4-piece Silverstar configurations but the TAMA Silverstar 5-piece standard set is a classic set-up that has been favored by drummers for many years and for all kinds of music.

TAMA calls itself “the strongest name in drums” because they have focused on making drums and hardware that is tough, durable and reliable, well-engineered and manufactured to give drummers a drum set that will hold up to years of use and never let you down.

This is a “shell set”, meaning drums, only. Stands, pedals and cymbals are not included. To complete this shell set, please check out the “Things You Will Need” column for suggestions

    Comments about Tama Silverstar 5-Piece Drums Shell Set. Lacquer Finishes.:

    Well, to start with, I am a guitar player, and I started to play a little drums on my buddys kit when we jam and he ended up leaving it by my house. He uses a Tama Superstars from the 80's. After playing on his Superstars for the better part of two years, I finally decided I should probably get myself a kit. So after months of research and reading reviews on this kit, I decided on the Silverstar, mostly for its versatility that I had heard all about. I ended up getting the Transparent Blue Burst, it came new in box when I recieved it. I couldn't have been happier with the finish, looks very professional and really is eye candy to look at. I had to throw the heads on the bass drum and floor tom, they sounded amazing right out of the box... I have only had a chance to change the floor tom head from stock to a clear Remo Emperor, and it couldn't sound better. I have yet to change the 10 and 12 batter heads to emperors but with that said, they sound great as is. Even with the stock heads, and I really didn't have to do much at all to get them to sound good right out of the box. Lastly, the snare... For a snare that comes with a kit... This thing really packs a punch and couldn't be better, stock heads and everything. The kick drum too for that matter. I just threw a blanket in there to mute it a litle and it is a cannon! Overall I am very pleased with this kit and would easily stand it side by side next to a Tama Superstar, best drums of the 80's, or other high quality kits for that matter, and I would recommend it to anybody!

      Comments about Tama Silverstar 5-Piece Drums Shell Set. Lacquer Finishes.:

      I just got my TAMA Silverstar Accel drive lacquer kit last week and played my first gig with them this weekend. I was Impressed with the look. The cherry Satin fade is a really nice deep finish. The double Tom holder and floortom legs were high quality and solid.

      As for the sound, I was blown away! I traded in a dw maple custom kIt in. I'm happier with this less expensive tama!

        wow!!!!! I got this kit yesterday and I am very pleased. this kit looks amazing. I got the satin cherry burst and can't stop staring at it. I haven't changed the heads yet and it sounds amazing. it has a very strong attack. very defined sound. I can't wait to hear what it sounds like with an evans emad2 , and ec2 clears with a st dry. TAMA has really upped the anti on this one. this kit is easily worth 2-3 times its price.
