Buying a "budget" set of drums can sometimes feel like a bit of a gamble. But at Sweetwater, we're committed to making sure you get your money's worth out of the gear you buy. That's why we stand behind our TAMA Imperialstar complete drum sets. For starters, you just can't beat the value of these kits, which come with a complete set of stage-ready TAMA hardware and quality Meinl cymbals. The 6-ply poplar shells themselves sound remarkably balanced and responsive, too, making this the kind of kit you can buy as your first and end up holding onto for life. A host of exciting new wrapped finishes makes the Imperialstar an irresistible buy for any level drummer.
TAMA takes the guesswork out of assembling a truly playable set of drums. Included with your Imperialstar IE58C is a quality set of Meinl HCS cymbals — 14-inch hi-hats and an 18-inch crash/ride — for a performance-ready sound. A TAMA single-chain drive kick pedal provides a smooth-playing action for your bass drum, and a full selection of TAMA hardware provides the stability you need. The cherry on top is an Imperialstar drum throne, which provides comfort for long playing sessions.
The shells of your TAMA Imperialstar are made from six plies of lightweight poplar. Poplar is known for its quick decay and full-bodied tone, which are just the qualities you want for close-miking applications onstage and in the studio.
Unlike some other kits, the Imperialstar's attractive wrapped finishes are glued 360° around the shells to eliminate buzzing or lifting of any kind. This leads to long-lasting good looks and a more consistent, resonant tone throughout the kit.
