Sonically, this kit produces tones more full and rich than the kit may appear to project.  This is due to the 100% birch shells which are equipped with Tama’s Sound Arc Hoop.  The additional of a new bass drum mute provides a punchy and fat kick sound.
Additionally, the Cocktail-JAM Kit and its hardware can be packed into just two bags (included with the kit), making it super portable and easy to transport to any gig.  Bass drum pedal and mounting brackets are included.

The Tama Cocktail-JAM 4-piece Shell Pack with Hardware features:
  • 6"x16" Bass Drum
  • 5"x10" Tom Tom
  • 5.5"x14" Floor Tom
  • 5"x12" Snare Drum

100% Birch shells
(TT/FT/SD) 6ply, 6mm / (BD) 7ply, 8mm

These birch shells are carefully selected by Tama and by using the same methods used in their high-end drums, you get the result of power, rich, and warmth that resonates.

Sound Focus Pad
This pad does more then show off the great Tama name. Applied to the top of the bass drum results in a tight sound that seperates well from the other drums.

Specially Designed Bags
Transport the kit with ease with the specially designed hardware and drum bag by Tama. It fits the entire set up in just two bags.

Perfect kit for small ensembles.


Great kit for a little space. Easy (10 minute) set-up and tear-down for not-at-home practice sessions and small gigs. I use this kit to accompany a flute ensemble. It can be played loud, but it plays softly very well. The bass drum sound isn't all that low; at E2(82.4Hz) it feels more like a low tom, and using the "sound director/pad" kills the resonance (sounds very much like a pillow in a normal bass drum). That is using the supplied head, though (which many recommend to replace with an Evans EMAD 18" _tom_ head -- it uses tom hoops, not bass drum hoops). Note that not using the sound director means that the 16" tom above the bass drum will also sound when the bass drum is played (at least when using a sitting position). Figure on spending a couple of hours tuning the kit and setting things up -- particularly the snare, which sounds horrible out of the box, but tuned up to sound excellent with superb response at low volume. Set up the bass drum pedal slightly off center for better tone. Add a moon gel to each tom and this set is very playable. For those that wonder, the bass drum pedal is included, the cymbal arms are not.



I'm liking this


I switched over to hot rods and I am getting some decent sounds out of this little kit. I haven't put any mics on it yet, but I'm confident that this kit is going to be my mainstay. If I need a smaller setup I'll use my cajon setup. I added some splash and trash cymbal stacks...life is good.



Decent kit, deceptive photo


I needed a small cocktail set so I liked the Tama name. I wish that I had tried it first as it is a little short for me. But close enough. Sounds good, and sturdy hardware. I ordered the more expensive one because the photos showed cymbals and the text said 'including hardware.' It didn't have either for cymbals.
