Complete 6-piece drum set with Meinl cymbals and 22" bass drum
The TAMA Imperialstar drum series is known as the industry standard for beginning drummers who want a high-quality drum set experience at an excellent value, and this 6-piece model goes the extra mile to deliver on that promise. By adding an additional floor tom to the popular 5-piece Imperialstar model, this kit gives players another option on the low end for more complex, thundering fills. The double floor tom setup is most famous as a go-to layout for hard rock and metal drummers, but the 14" size of the extra floor tom can prove just as useful for agile jazz and blues styles. This model also incorporates a 22" bass drum size, giving drummers even more punch under cymbal crashes and downbeats.
High-end features at an entry-level price
Sound and durability go hand-in-hand, and Imperialstar delivers on both accounts by incorporating features from TAMA's higher-end Superstar and Starclassic lines. 100% poplar 6-ply, 8 mm shells achieve full, deep sounds using TAMA’s precision bearing edges for efficient sound transfer from drumhead to shell. The wrap finishes are fully adhered to the poplar using a gluing process (not double-sided tape) to produce a strong bond that allows the wood and wrap to fully resonate as one. Ultra low-mass lugs further enable toms and floor toms to reach their full, rich tones.
Good cymbals are essential to the acoustic drum set experience, so TAMA has collaborated with Meinl to include their name-brand HCS cymbals in this complete kit. The 14" hi-hats, 16" crash and 20" ride produce clean sonic separation and are highly durable to allow full dynamic exploration.
Rugged hardware you can depend on
TAMA has a glowing reputation for making the highest-grade hardware in the industry. Imperialstar drum sets offer a super sturdy and highly adjustable ball/socket 10.5 mm double tom holder with memory locks, a height-adjustable padded throne and double-braced, three-tiered cymbal stands that combine stability with full height adjustment and positioning. Bass drum pedal and hi-hat stand are critical to any drummer’s performance expression, therefore TAMA includes a bass drum pedal that has an underside rock plate for stability, along with independent tension and beater-angle adjustments to allow drummers to find their desired bass drum feel. The double-braced hi-hat stand assures stability and includes secure-grip clutch for prolonged and secure performance, along with seat-cup angle adjustment for customized cymbal feel.

In addition to this 6-piece, 22" bass drum Imperialstar model with Meinl cymbals, TAMA also offers multiple 5-piece configurations and bass drums sizes to fit your exact needs. Add-on drums are also available.
This model comes in a variety of wrap finishes including Candy Apple Mist, Hairline Black, Vintage White Sparkle, Black Oak Wrap, Burgundy Walnut Wrap, and Hairline Light Blue.
