<h1>Tama Drums and Meinl Cymbals = All You Need To Start Drumming! </h1>
<p><strong><em>Absolutely everything you need to get playing, just add sticks! </em></strong></p>
<p>With over 40 years of drum building experience, TAMA knows what drummers really want. With this in mind they sought out to design an affordable yet durable kit that retained many high-end features you'll find in their Silverstar, Superstar, and Starclassic lines. The result is 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.</p>
<h2>Full Compliment of Tama Double Braced Hardware with Iron Cobras at Your Feet!</h2>
<p>Tama has upgraded the stands to the award winning Stagemaster Double Braced hardware pack. You get a boom cymbal stand, a straight cymbal stand, and a sturdy snare drum stand. If that's not enough, the practically indestructible Iron Cobra 200 series Bass Drum pedal and Hi Hat stand have been upgraded as standard features! That's not all, Tama is also including a drum throne!</p>
<h2>Got Cymbals? Meinl to the Rescue!</h2>
<p> Meinl has developed the HCS with a specific brass alloy to deliver maximum performance and sound. Included in this package are 14" hi-hats, a 16" crash, and a 20" ride.</p>
<h1>What does Tama have to say?</h1>
<div class="std">Tama's Imperialstar drum series is known as THE industry standard for beginning drummers who want a high-quality drum set experience at an excellent value. Tama's philosophy is that the beginning/aspiring drummer realizes maximum enjoyment and personal fulfillment on a fully functional, highly durable and quality sounding acoustic drum set/cymbal package. This is the foundation for Tama, and they designed Imperialstar to be a proven value that is uncommon in the world of today's "entry-level" drum set category.</div>
<div class="std"> For Tama, sound and durability go hand-in-hand and Imperialstar delivers on both accounts. 100% Poplar 6ply, 8mm shells achieve full, deep sounds that include Tama's precision bearing edges for efficient sound transfer from drumhead to shell. The wrap finishes are fully adhered to the shell using a gluing process (not double-sided tape) to produce a strong bond that allows the shell and wrap to fully resonate as one. Ultra low-mass lugs further enable toms and floor toms to reach their full, rich tones. Tama fully supports the idea that good sounding cymbals are critical to an essential acoustic drum set experience, so they have collaborated with Meinl on the cymbal set up and include Meinl's HCS series cymbals. They produce clean sonic separation and are highly durable to allow full dynamic exploration.</div>
<div class="std"> Good quality hardware is essential to an enjoyable drum set experience and Tama has a glowing reputation for making the highest-grade hardware in the industry. Tama brings their hardware expertise to Imperialstar by offering a super sturdy and highly adjustable ball/socket 10.5mm 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/positioning.</div>
<div class="std"> 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.</div>
<div class="std"> Several configurations and finishes are available to customize the appropriate drum sizes and finish aesthetic for each individual. Add-on drums are available to accommodate drum set expansion. Imperialstar offers the entry-level drummer incredible value derived from a different kind of product experience. Tama invites you to engage in your full drum set potential by exploring the Imperialstar acoustic drum set experience.
