Learn More About Tama Drums

More than a few drummers have told Tama that "innovative" is the first word they think of when they hear the name "Tama." Tama is very proud of that. Since 1974, they've worked hard to come up with new ideas -- not complex innovations for innovations' sake, but forward thinking, practical designs that allow drummers to play exactly what they want and how they want to play it.

In the 70's, Tama advanced the evolution of the modern drum set by reinventing drum hardware. Tama's designers replaced the old fashioned thin and unstable stands of the times with the first double-braced hardware, boom stands, and multi-clamps -- sturdy and flexible equipment players needed to handle the new heavier drumming styles and larger, more complex set-ups. In the 80's, Tama introduced the Camco chain-drive pedal, the X-hat auxiliary hi-hat and the first twin pedals with both beaters in a single housing - now the industry standard in double-pedal construction.

The 90's brought even more innovations. Iron Cobra pedals delivered "the feel that's unreal," 1st Chair thrones offered comfort with support and Tama FastClamps made drum set up, if not more fun, at least a whole lot faster than ever before.

Tama innovations aren't limited to hardware. They've introduced Octobans, Gong Bass Drums and Tymp-Toms to the drummer's lexicon. Tama's 1980's Artstar drums ignited the thin-shell revolution. Artstar's "thin yet strong" shells allowed optimum vibration from head to shell while providing the strength to maintain shell roundness and integrity -- even under extremes of high lug tension and heavy playing. Tama's L-Rod mounting system eliminated the need for shell penetrating hardware such as the mounting pipes that sap shell vibration.

The culmination of these 2 design concepts was the 1994 debut of Starclassic Tama drums. Augmenting Starclassic's thin, strong shells was the new Star-Cast mounting system, the first free suspension mounting design that was simple to operate and had no adverse effects on tuning. Other drum makers have followed the example set by Tama drum sets by adopting thinner shells and free floating systems, but none have set the same pace or the standard.

Are there more innovations today? Definitely. For the professional, they've added new features and options. Their snare drum line - already the most comprehensive of any drum maker - features a wider selection of snare drums than ever with all-new shell materials and snare technology. There is also plenty of great new gear for players on a budget -- the upgraded Rockstar and Swingstar lines demonstrate Tama's unflagging commitment to offer more pro features and sound at entry-level prices.
