well here's a very short story.
I went home on leave and was down at my drum shop talking to the guys that work there and I was telling them how I almost bought this Tama double bass kit. They started telling me how lucky I was that I didnt order it that I should try and stay away from there products at all cost because tama does not back and of their stuff and if you have any probs with it oh well.
I havent ever really had any dealings with tama other than 2 thrones that I have owned. But I hate to say it I trust these guys and I am inclined to belive them. The only product that they carred by tama was the iron cobra and even they said it was crap.

But Ill let you guys decide.

Re: Tell us about your set up


Just bought a TAMA Imperialstar set with Meinl cymbals for my young niece. The bass drum was damaged in shipment. TAMA immediately found another set with the same finish and agreed to ship it, but it took forever for them to ship it out of Pennsylvania -- they shipped it three weeks after they said they would. Granted, they were closed one week for inventory, and the next week they went to the NAMM show, but don't say you're gonna ship it and not ship it. My drumstore said others had had problems with TAMA.

I think for a beginner's kit it's a great kit, but it was ordered October 25, supposed to be in in 3 or 4 weeks, and she received her replacement bass drum TODAY! I think it's Feb. 4. Gimme shelter!

Re: Щебень гранит


bambam, that post is from a russian spammer. if you click on the triangle in the upper right hand corner of his post with the exclamation point in it, you can report the post to alert the mods so that it can be deleted. i already reported it, but you can help by not quoting those posts. if you do, it just stays on the site even after the original post has been deleted.
