Vintage Tama Superstar drums. 22" bass, 16" floor tom, 12" & 13" toms in Aqua. Offered here first before they go on eBay.


These drums have the correct original early version smooth bass tension rods, correct original early version Omni Sphere tomholder and standard sized toms (not power toms). These features and the serial numbers date this set to c. 1979. Minor flaws pointed out for the nitpickers among us: non-original (later Tama) tom mounts fitting into existing holes and an extra hole on the side of the bass drum, covered by a small metal plate (see pics). Typical wear, fade, dings and scratches. Otherwise, no issues, these drums are rock solid and totally ready to roll. They sound amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed owning them, but need to downsize.

Asking $750 + shipping.

My kit started going green like that too. Wish they'd had ultraviolet immune finishes back then.

It was a great sounding kit, as I'm sure yours is.

Yes, for some reason the top of the bass drum has faded/yellowed more than the hoops.
