[APRIL 2016 KOTM] 12 Piece 1982 Tama Superstar kit!

Recommended Posts

Well I just scored the kit of a lifetime! It doesn't get a whole lot better than this, especially for a big RUSH fan like myself. I got this kit off of my buddy. He has one as well. I tried to get the sun to cooperate today, but the clouds prevailed. Still turned out to be a pretty good photo shoot. Hard to tell but the four concert toms are actually Imperial Stars. My buddy removed the ugly coating inside, stained the insides red, and rewrapped the drums in red to match the Cherry Superstars. The kit really does sound great, and looks even better!

Once again I find my self uttering the familiar words, "Beautiful kit, Sticks!"  And once again I am staring at another set of drums being added to Glen's collection.  Which brings me to my main concerns:

 

1.  Glen will soon need a second barn to house his drums

 

2.  Building said barn would put a crimp in his wallet, and I would no longer be able to live vicariously through his drum purchases

 

3.  By the time I decide to start buying multiple kits, there won't be any left

 

These thoughts keep me up at night.  LOL

 

Sticks, let me know if you change to calf-skin heads because there are multiple cow farms in my town I can invest in.

 

Congrats on another gorgeous instrument.

There is lots more room in the barn, just not in the drum room.  :)

I can't even believe you got that kit for that cheap! Was the former owner in a Rush tribute band?

He is a good friend of mine, and a huge RUSH fan like myself.  He has one just like it, but with more toms.  He bought this kit for the Superstar concert toms, and original snare.  He kept the concert toms, and snare, and sold me the kit without a snare, and with his refurbished Imperialstar concert toms.  It is kind of a shame they he broke the kit up, but he wanted to keep his original set that he bought from new, and just add these pieces.

Man, I make my own drums but, for 600 I'd have bought those myself.

The 6 and 8 seem to seat heads like bongos.

​Thanks!  The 6 and 8 are done that way because of the small striking area.

Well I added the matching 40th anniversary Superstar snare to the kit.  I also picked up a Tama Titan boom stand from the same era.  This allowed me to get my concert toms in the perfect position.  The cymbal placement is also similar to Neil's Superstar kit.  

 

Another thing that always bothered me about the old Tama kits was that the badges on the rack toms, were hidden when mounted.  Never made much sense to me.  I like seeing the badge, so I moved them out front.
