The Tama Imperialstar IS58 drum set is a great choice for a compact entry level set, but has the quality and durability needed to go for the long haul. With a 14 x 18 inch bass drum this kit is easy to transport and fits in any room in the house or any small stage in a club. The Imperialstar IS58C is ideal for a beginner or pro looking for an affordable smaller second kit.
Six Ply 7.5 mm Poplar Shells with Top Quality Construction
Poplar has been used in quality drums for over 50 years. The tone is full and warm with medium attack and the shells last. The shells are clad in a quality finish that is glued evenly throughout to the wood. Tama does not take the shortcut of attaching the coat at a few contact points, so Tama drums never have gaps that cause warps or buzzing. The result is durable drums with an audible difference.
The Imperialstar IS58C includes the following:
Drums:• 14x18" bass drum
• 5.5x13" metal snare
• 9x12" tom
• 8x10" toms
• 12x14" floor tom
Stands• Snare stand
• Straight cymbal stand
• Boom cymbal stand
• Hi-hat stand
• Bass Drum pedal
• Bonus bass drum lifter helps the beater hit that sweet spot every time
Meinl HCS Cymbals• Pair 14" hi hats
• 18" crash/ride
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.
Black Nickel Plated Steel Snare Drum
The Imperialstar IS58 Drum Set features a steel snare drum that is much more powerful and brighter than the typical wood entry-level snare. With this snare drum you can easily handle the most heavily amplified rock band. For a drum set with this affordable price, you would not expect to get a snare drum with this level of sensitivity, responsiveness, and expensive looks.
Noiseless Design Hardware
Tama Imperialstar drum sets feature Stagemaster stands designed with the elimination of noise a top priority. A special rubber cap (A) at the end of the upper tube eliminates swaying and rattling, and a special nylon sleeve (B) underneath the die-cast joint of the base section further reduces vibration and swaying.
The "Escape Claws" rubber cushions support the snare drum by "floating" on the metal support arms for improved resonance. In addition, they help reduce fatigue by softening the impact on your arms and wrists while playing the snare drum.
Precision Bearing Edges
Like all Tama Imperialstar drums, the IS58 is made with an advanced edge-cutting process that provides precision bearing edges which allow the shells to ring openly and fully, and provide a wide range of tuneability, sensitivity and response.
New Design Lugs
Imperialstar lugs are 10% smaller than the lugs of the previous Swingstar Series for even greater shell resonance.
Accu-tune Bass 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.
