I doubt it. They probably didn't have any old shells at that point. It would not have been difficult for them to omit 2 plies when making the shells for that kit. The re-rings would most likely have been installed after the shell came out of the mold.mlucas123 said:The red kit.

70's Tama Superstar shells were 4 ply 6mm with rings.
My question is....Did Tama just make Neil's red kit with old Superstar
I believe this to be correct. Played a new set of Plum Crazy colored Luddies.I think he left Tama and went to Ludwig for Hold Your Fire ('87?), if anyone's keeping score.
'87 was his best finish/kit IMO: white pearlescent sparkle with a little pink. Plum was Presto.Snooter said:I believe this to be correct. Played a new set of Plum Crazy colored Luddies.I think he left Tama and went to Ludwig for Hold Your Fire ('87?), if anyone's keeping score.
I remember seeing an ad with him standing behind those drums. I was shocked he dropped Tama for Ludwig
Tama came out with Artstar II in late 83-early 84.Those shells were as Tama says,"Canadian hardrock maple".Pat said:Did Tama make any maple shelled kits back in the early to mid '80s?
