TAMA Announces Release of New STAGESTAR Series Kits

Christian Wissmuller • Gearcheck • January 11, 2023

New for 2023, TAMA has announced the release of their new, super-affordable STAGESTAR drum kits.

STAGESTAR provides a full sounding drum set with durable hardware and functional cymbals. 100% Poplar 6ply 7mm shells produce full, dynamic tones for each drum.  Hardware stands feature double braced legs – Boom stand with multi-angle adjustments, snare stand with adjustable snare basket and hi-hat stand with a strong clutch that holds tight.  The bass drum pedal is equipped with separate spring tension and beater angle adjustments to provide customized pedal feel, according to player preference.  The 14” hi-hat and 16” crash cymbals use thicker gauge brass than is common at this price point and provide increased volume and durability.  Also included with this kit is a double-braced drum throne with spindle height adjustment.  This design is more secure and easier to position up/down than is a fixed bolt height adjustment.  The last feature that differentiates STAGESTAR is the TAMA Omnisphere Tom Holder. It incorporates a ball/socket tom arm design for flexible positioning and secure hold. Additionally, the L-arms do not penetrate the tom shells when connected, which allows the tom shell to resonate more freely than other conventional mounting systems. TAMA’s STAGESTAR is the next generation of entry-level complete drum sets for the value-conscious consumer.  It includes everything players need (except drumsticks) to get started on a full-sized drum set.
