Celebrating five decades since its establishment in 1974, Tama, renowned for its exceptional drum kits, introduces new additions to the Superstar and Imperialstar series. The Superstar, a stalwart since its debut in 1976 and revamped in 2005, receives a commemorative upgrade with a unique finish in honor of Tama’s golden jubilee.

Tama Superstar Classic Series: A Timeless Addition


The Tama Superstar Classic series welcomes a fresh member boasting a visually striking “Gloss Natural Blonde” finish. Crafted with an all-maple composition, this kit features a 22″x16″ bass drum, 10″x07″ and 12″x08″ rack toms, a 16″x14″ floor tom, and a 14″x6.5″ snare drum. Priced at 874 GBP, the package includes Tama’s SM5W Hardware pack featuring essential components like a pedal, hi-hat machine, snare stand, and two boom stands.


Adding to the anniversary fervor, the Tama Superstar 50th Anniversary Limited Reissue Sets present an all-birch configuration, available for 1,666 GBP. Boasting a 6-ply/9mm shell set reminiscent of the series’ inception, it comprises a 22″x14″ bass drum, 10″x08″ and 12″x08″ rack toms, and a 16″x16″ floor tom. The kit, available in Turquoise, Red, Nature, and Brown, excludes the snare drum.


Tama Imperialstar: Introducing the “BOB” Finish

In addition to Superstar revelations, the Imperialstar series introduces a novel configuration with a distinctive “BOB” finish.

Thomann* offers this kit, inclusive of a hardware package and three Meinl cymbals, for 915 GBP.

Not to be overshadowed by its Superstar counterpart, the Tama Starclassic Mirage, a limited edition drum kit reminiscent of the ’80s, makes a bold entrance. With transparent shells designed to captivate onlookers, the kit includes 14″x12″ and 16″x14″ floor toms, 10″x07″ and 12″x08″ rack toms, and a 22″x16″ bass drum.

Notably, the snare drum is not part of the ensemble.

Tama’s latest releases showcase a commitment to innovation and quality, marking a significant milestone in the company’s rich history. Drum enthusiasts and professionals alike can anticipate superior sound and craftsmanship from these commemorative drum kits.
