I checked my pic folder of the kit with the knocked off Tama mounting hardware
and found that receiver was indeed a little different

Big Beat nailed it

Star and Hoshino are the same company . . . now known as Tama . . . jus' sayin' . . . NAD
Actually, there were two Hoshino's; 1. Hoshino Gakki (pre-Tama), and 2. Hoshino Kougyou.

If you look at my post, it says "Hoshino K" (easier to say 'Star', then 'Hoshino G', plus the vast majority of people recognize the name Star, not Hoshino G). Both were from the same era, and even based in the same town (Nagoya), but different companies/brands.
