I've seen all these kits at the shop. All are nice.
The Pearl Decade is a really nice sounding kit, and the paint is excellent. My favorite is the more red burst, but all the colors are nice.
Solid sounding shells, and surprisingly light.
buy: Pearl
play: Pearl

I don't own any Pearl drums, but I would not be opposed to owning or playing on a Decade maple kit.
If you like Birch, the Yamaha is good.
But for sound, I'd pass on the Tama and the Yamaha is it was my money.

Cheers!

Buy: Yamaha stage custom (own a set-wonderful)

Play: Tama-I have a set of imperialstars I bought for my son (a step lower than the Superstar Classics) and they can more than handle the job.

Pass: Pearl. I like Pearl snares, never liked their drums.
