Finally received these: Starclassic Maple - Cherry Black. Brand new, custom built in Japan. 20x14" bass drum and 15x14" floor tom to match my existing kit.

Im really stoked about these. The bass drum has clear Emperors on both sides, no port, KickPro pillow inside; PUNCH!

That really is a gorgeous finish.

Looking forward to seeing these set up with some of their mates.

Are these MIJ drums available to the general public, or endorsers only?
Dan, add on drums/sizes are available from the Japan factory as long as they still have the material needed (wrap, laquer etc.). Lead time is 5 months and the price tag is similar to the Star series. You should be able to get a quote from a Tama dealer.

The only thing missing is a matching snare.
Cherry Black rules!
For sale? ;-)

If I ever stumble upon a 6.5x14" 8 (16) lug drum in Cherry Black I would love it.

Beauty. Your setup looks pretty spread out. Can you reach the 15 floor behind the other floors OK? Is your high hat pedal distance to your lead kick pedal far away or, is it just the picture?

I set the kit up this way purely to make a foto of all the drums together. I did sit down behind it and reaching the 16" floor tom behind the others was no problem. But I'm a big guy with long arms.

Tama's Starclassic Maple drums are some of my favorite drums of all time. Those are gorgeous! Wow! Congratulations, Halldor!
