    Early Tama Rockstar Bass Drums

    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know if Tama made their early (late 80s, I believe--short lugs) Rockstar Drums in 22" by 18"? I've been perusing the catalogues and only found mention of 22" by 16".

    1976 2002 20 inch

    I have a chance to pick up a 1976 20 inch 2002 crash today. It's in good condition. The lettering is still on it, no flea bites, but has a mild keyhole. If you are a Paiste fan, like I am, theoretically, would you pick it up for a good price? What would you pay. Pic coming.

    Granstar vs. Granstar II?

    Hi there, Just wondering if anyone can fill me in on the difference between Granstar and Granstar II. Is it just the longer lugs in the Granstar II, or is there more to it than that? Thanks!
