A late 1970s Tama Imperialstar kit in Jet Black nitron wrap. 8x12", 9x13", 10x14", 12x15" mounted toms; 16x18" floor tom; 14x24" kick drum, and 5x14" snare. The kit is in great working order, with age-typical surface blemishes and wear. Nearly all the heads are original, though well-worn. An iconic kit in great, sensible sizes.

From the 1983 Tama catalog:

"Imperialstar drums have always had for years a great reputation for performance in the recording studio. The secret of this success lies, of course, in the shell construction. Imperialstar shells are made of plys of straight-grain wood which is then covered with a quality plastic lamination. This lamination is applied with a special high pressure roller press. Thus, Imperialstar shells are the most tightly bonded drums on the market today. These drums are especially weather resistant due to the tough moisture resisting Zola-Coat finish on the inside of the shell. Therefore, Imperialstar drums produce a consistently clean and strong sound. All Tama drums have their own serial number imprinted on the Tama emblem."
