Shells:100% poplar 6ply/7.5mm

Poplar wood has been used in making drum shells for over 50 years. It offers a full, warm tone combined with medium attack.

Precise Bearing Edges

A drum’s bearing edge is one of the most important components in drum sound.
Our advanced edge-cutting process provides extremely precise bearing edges – which allow Tama shells to ring openly and fully, and provide a wide range of tune ability, sensitivity and response.

100% Glued Finishes

Some drum companies only affix their wraps to the drum shell by taping the finish at “selected contact points”. At Tama, all of our wrapped finishes are glued to the shell 100% to eliminate warping, buzzing or lifting. This process allows the shell to resonate fully and consistently. It’s more work, but it’s worth it. A difference you can see and hear!


Imperialstar all-in-one “READY-TO-ROCK” packages not only have everything you need to rock, you’ll rock better with HCS genuine brass cymbals from Meinl, the cymbal maker of choice for many of today’s new generation drummers.

Original Small Lugs

Imperialstar lugs are 10% smaller than the lugs of our previous Swingstar Series for even greater shell resonance.

Drum Heads

Batter side heads are made of clear 250 microns thick film for richer tone and greater durability. Ring mufflers on bass drum heads remove the need for additional internal muffling.

Accu-Tune Bass Drum Hoops

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.

Spur Brackets

Imperialstar spur bracket features the same look and style as our high-end Starclassic drums and provides maximum durability and stability.

Tom Holder

Tama L-Rod and Omnisphere tom holder systems have received acclaim from drummers for over 25 years. These systems offer easy positioning, maximum flexibility, stability and greater sound than standard designs which penetrate the shell interior and can inhibit resonance.

Tom Brackets

The eye-bolet structure is rock solid, holding the toms in place securely.
