    Default Vintage Tama kit info

    Any information on this kit is greatly appreciated.
    Sizes are 20", 12" and 14"
    Tama Imperialstar (Believed to be 1978)
    The finish shows pictures of Billy Cobham and his kits. Its definately original (certainly not a rewrap) but I haven't seen one like this anywhere or in any of the catalogues.

    Most likely it was a one off kit made for a trade show and / or a Tama dealer. Have you tried contacting Tama?

    Thats what I suspected, tried to contact them, but got nothing back. Spent a good amount of time restoring them recently, stripping them and replacing a few floor tom lugs, and the bass drum spurs, and most of the heads. I read somewhere that the 20" bass drums and 14" floors are particularly rare, so I feel lucky to have this little kit. It had been sitting, waiting for restoration in my grandad's (a professional uk session drummer) garage for a decade before he finally got round to asking someone (me) to sort it out, on the grounds that if i did, I could keep it.

    BTW the band is a UK country band called the String trees)
