TAMA Imperialstar 18" Bass Drum With
over 40 years of experience, TAMA knows what drummers really want.
Which is why TAMA has the set you need, want, and can afford no matter
how long you've been playing drums or what budget you have to work with.
Now TAMA has launched the affordable kit to ever incorporate so many
high-end features - Imperialstar. Every aspect of the modern drum kit
was exhaustively examined, reexamined, and then improved before it was
accepted as part of the Imperialstar design. That is why, if you start
playing Imperialstar drums now as a beginner, you'll still be enjoying
them when you've achieved pro status. That's how good these
groundbreaking drums are.
Features: Shells:100% poplar 6ply/7.5mm Poplar wood has been used in making drum shell 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!
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.
