Tama Imperialstar 4-piece Drum Kit Review – Sweetwater Sound

Get this Imperialstar 4-piece kit here: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/IP42GCCPM

In this video I am playing on a Tama Imperialstar 4-piece Drum Kit in a Vintage Red finish. You may think that because this drum set package is geared towards the beginner player, that it may not be of good quality. I can tell you with confidence that this Tama Imperialstar is indeed a quality product that sounds great! You get everything you need, other then a pair of drum sticks, to start making music.

The drums are made from Poplar. Poplar wood has been used in making drum shells for over 50 years. These drums have a full, warm tone, combined with medium attack. You get a 9″ x 12″ rack tom, a 14″ x 16″ floor tom, a big sounding 18″ x 22″ kick drum, and a 5″ x 14″ snare drum.

The drum package also comes with STAGE MASTER Hardware Stands and a set of Meinl HCS cymbals. Just get yourself a pair of sticks and start rocking!

Levi Helmick says:

can’t find this set anywhere

Tgamer 3201 says:

Those are some badass cymbals

HortonKansas says:

The four piece kit is as important to the birth of rock and roll music as the electric guitar.

JoeDotPHP says:

It’s amazing how little one needs to sound really good. I use a four piece Pearl and I love it. Simple is beautiful.


Listen to the crack of that snare the quality sound of those toms and that kick…. Best sounding drum set for this price range… This is why tama is the strongest name in drums

Jalen Hearns says:

I love drums

Mike Dunham says:

Best sounding “beginner” cymbals I have ever heard…

Ethan Welk says:

This set sounds amazing.

Adrian Odtohan says:

Jonas Verlo says:

Good review, groovy playing! 🙂

Djohn Mema says:

I wish they still made the hairline gold :(((

日本ジョーリーン says:

That’s EXACTLY how I want my kit to sound, they sound amazing! I’m having trouble tuning it like that though.

Gino Tuano says:

is it just me or does he sound and look a bit gloomy?

Veranek says:

Great sounding drum set.

Lucas Rivera says:

I just wish Pearl could do something like this with their Roadshow series. I already am aware of the 4-piece bop kit, but they should make a 4-piece Roadshow kit that has a 12 inch rack tom, 14 inch floor tom, 20 inch kick drum, and a 14×5 snare.

rhspercussionistguy says:

This guy is the best salesman

Eron Manabat says:

Is it in US dollars?

JAldwin says:

12 lugs (6+6) on that 16″ floor tom. Sounds amazing, with plenty of initial attack. I’m surprised that isn’t seen more often.
