Released just 2 years after the birth of the TAMA brand, Superstar drums were dynamic and powerful, laying the groundwork for the future of TAMA's sound. Now, almost 50 years later, the original Superstar drums have been revived as a Limited Edition model to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of TAMA Drums.
Superstar was the world's first drum kit to utilize an all-Birch shell, producing the perfect sound for the emerging genres of the time - a sound that captivated the top drummers in the world. The groundbreaking 6-ply/9mm shell design was crucial to Superstar's monumental success. Thicker than modern drums, these shells achieved powerful attack and deep low end. Honoring TAMA's 50th Anniversary, the original shells, period correct shell hardware, and matching interior finish deliver a faithful reproduction of the original Superstar.
Available in 4 popular original colors: Aqua Marine, Cherry Wine, Super Mahogany, and Super Maple. After 50 years, we celebrate the origin of TAMA's sound with the Superstar Reissue.
