Imperialstar all-in-one kits are expertly crafted and include a variety of pro-level features not found on other drum sets in its price range. Combined with Meinl cymbals, Tama Imperialstar is unparalleled in quality, sound and value — and everything you need to get started. Imperialstar bass drum hoops utilize a specially formulated hi-tech material that offers lighter weight and faster, more stable tuning. Because Accu-Tune hoops use tension bolts instead of claw-hooks and T-rods, head changes and packing up are a breeze. Imperialstar lugs are smaller and lighter mass for even greater shell resonance. Imperialstar spurs offer a choice of spiked or molded footing to keep your bass drum solidly anchored, regardless of the floor surface. Strong, durable, spur brackets offer maximum stability and fold away for more convenient packing. Tama Omnisphere tom holder systems have received numerous accolades from drummers for over 25 years and are acclaimed for fast, flexible positioning coupled with rock solid stability. This version follows Tama's original design principle, which prohibits any external shell intrusion that might inhibit the shell's natural resonance.

Tama Poplar Shells
Imperialstar drums shells are 7.5 millimeter-thick and made using 8 plies of 100% Poplar. Poplar has been a choice wood used in building drum shells for over 50 years and offers full, warm tone and medium attack. The bearing edge is one of the most important components in achieving a good drum sound. Our advanced edge-cutting process produces clean, precise bearing edges that allow TAMA shells to ring fully and more openly. It also provides a wider range of tuning, along with greater sensitivity and sharper response. Some drum makers only affix their wraps by taping the finishing sheet to the shell at "selected contact points." All of TAMA's wrapped finishes are 100% glued to eliminate warping, buzzing, or lifting. This method is more expensive and more labor intensive, but allows the shell to resonate, fully and consistently.

Tama Quality Hardware
The 40 Series Stage Master hardware offers a lot of the great functionality,stability and quality found in the Roadpro hardware series. The combination of flexible adjustability and strength make it a solid choice for beginners and intermediate level drummers. Professional players in search of solid stability with easy-to-transport lighter weight will appreciate the attributes Stage Master has to offer. Imperialstar's throne features a padded 13" diameter seat that's larger and more comfortable than anything in its class. Other thrones in this price range typically offer a multiple-drilled center-post and bolt mechanism that allows fixed height adjustments, but the HT25 incorporates a universal height adjustment for infinite seating height flexibility. The Iron Cobra 200 series was developed around the same design principles as TAMA's renowned Iron Cobra 900 series, and offers remarkable performance and durability. The 200's Power Glide cam provides a smooth, light feel without sacrificing power or speed. Both the HP200P and HP200PTW can be fitted with TAMA's Cobra Coil for an even faster footboard return.

Meinl HCS Cymbals
Rounding out Imperialstar's impressive array of features, TAMA has chosen to partner with Meinl® Cymbals, the choice of today's new generation of drummers, to include Meinl's HCS cymbals. These great sounding, genuine brass cymbals are the ideal counterpart to Imperialstar's powerful, sonorous drums.

The quintessential starter kit


The Tama Imperial Star kit if the quintessential quality starter kit for anyone looking to get started on drums. This kit comes with everything. Drums, Cymbals, Hardware, and even a drum throne which very few kits come with. Best part is that not only does it come with cymbals but they are quality Meinl cymbals and not no name brand ones. You won't go wrong with this set.

The ImperialStar Does it Again !


The Tama Imperialstar has been long known as the quintessential drum kit for beginners of all ages and sizes. This new kit maintains Tama's long standing reputation for consistency and great all around build with its 6 ply shells with its precisely cut edges, Meinl HCS cymbals and a sturdy double brace tripod system to hold all the components in place. Definitely a great and affordable all in one solution that takes design cues from its much higher end counterparts of the same make,

Great Drum Set!


This is a great drum set, with a good variety of tones from the toms and well built hard ware. These popular kits are available in a few great finishes and have been very popular since their release. If you are looking for a great and inexpensive kit, look no further, this one is for you!




THE Entry-Level Kit


This classic it by Tama has been the go-to kit for beginner musicians for many years, with good reason. What is new and desirable about this already wonderful kit, are the hardware upgrades that are now standard from Tama. The hardware will truly extend the life of the kit adding to many more years of quality use. One of the biggest benefits of this kit compared to other similarly priced ones, is the true consistency of Tama's work. The kit is available in quite a few eye-catching finishes. Great kit for the beginner musician who does not want to skimp on quality.

Great Bang for the Buck from Tama


Are you a beginner drummer? Are you a seasoned drummer looking for a great practice kit on a budget? If you answered yes to either of those questions the Tama Imperialstar line is a great option to consider for a new drumkit. You start with Poplar shells a great tonewood for drums as it's even ended and punchy. Pair that with Tama's precision cut bearing edges and rugged hardware to get a great value. But Tama doesn't stop at the drums they give you everything you need to get off on the right foot. Double braced stands, a good kick pedal and hi hat stand, and even a throne. Giving you pieces that even if you progress or make upgrades can still be useful down the road. They partnered with german cymbal makers Meinl and included an HCS series starter cymbal pack a huge upgrade over a lot of lower end cymbals. Having a six piece kit like this is a lot of fun to play as you can tune your toms to a large interval ranging from high to low pitches. The finishes are all excellent quality wraps that are durable and meant to take a beating. I'd encourage anyone buying one of these to look into replacing the heads I like Aquarian but Remo and Evans also offer terrific options that will improve the tone but also personalize the kit to your exact sound needs. Drum mutes or a zildjian/remo quiet pack can also be a great add on for lower volume practicing. Check out the Tama Imperialstars if you are a beginner or seasoned drummer looking for a killer practice kit.
