Tama Artstar II Drum Set Reviews 5

I AM A HEAVY METAL DRUMMER I'VE BEEN PLAYING FOR 25+ YEARS I'VE DONE COUNTLESS HOURS OF STUDIO TIME AND GOD KNOWS HOW MANY LIVE SHOWS,MY MUSIC STYLE IS LIKE PANTARA,GOD SMACK ECT.MY PLAYING STYLE IS VERY COMPLEX WITH A HELL OF ALOT OF DUBBLE BASS, I LOVE ALL TYPES OF MUSIC MOSTLY DUE TO WHO IS PLAYING DRUMS IN THE BAND EVERY THING FROM PHIL COLLINS-TERRY BOZZIO-MIKE TERRANA-BUDDY RICH-SCOTT TRAVIS-ECT.SO MANY GREAT ONES! MY KIT IS AN 91 TAMA ARTSTAR II I HAVE 2-24" BASS DRUMS 11X12"12X13 14X14 16X16 AND 6 1/2 X14 BRASS SNARE MY SET IS IN CHERRY WINE COLOR AND I JUST LOVE IT.I'VE PLAYED SO MANY SETS AND NOTHING COMPARES TO THE ARTSTAR II

I BOUGHT MY SET FOR BUFFALO DRUM OUTLET IN 1991 THE COMPLETE SET WAS AROUND $2000.00 BUT OVER THE YEARS I'VE UPGRADED HARDWARE AND ODDS & ENDS

THE BEST THING THAT I FOUND ABOUT TAMA ARTSTAR II'S IS EVERYTHING!!! JUST A GREAT PIECE! FROM THE CRAFTSMANSHIP TO THE SOUND TO THE LOOKS THEY ARE ALL GOOD! THEY HAVE SUCH A WARM RICH TONE THAT IS SECOND TO NONE! I'VE BEEN PLAYING FOR OVER 25 YEARS AND I'VE PLAYED ON 100'S OF SETS BUT I CANT FIND ANY DRUM THAT HAS THE TOTAL PACKAGE LIKE THE ARTSTAR II I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS KIT TO EVERY ONE FROM THE STUDIO TO LIVE PERFORMANCE THEY ARE GREAT!!!!!

THE ONLY THING THAT I DISS LIKE IS THAT TAMA DOSENT STILL MAKE THEM,IM NOT SO SURE ABOUT THE NEW TAMA ALL MAPLE LINE THEY JUST DONT SOUND THE SAME. SOMTHING IS MISSING!

ALL MAPLE SHELL,LONG TENTION LUGS,WOOD BASS DRUM HOOPS,OUTSTANDING QUALITY

GREAT DRUM,OUTSTANDING SOUND,HIGHLY RECOMMENDED,GREAT HARWARE,VERY NICE QUALITY,I HAVE FOUND NO DRUMS TO COMPARE TO THE ARTSTAR II. A VERY GOOD WELL ROUNDED DRUM
