TWO Tama Rockstar drum kits combined to make one awesome double bass set. They are both 1996 models, the last year that Rockstars were made in Japan. Misty Chrome shell covering, in amazing condition for the age. I bought them about 5 years ago from someone who purchased them new from Music Manor in 1996, then they almost never touched them! Had the original heads when I bought them, and they were barely touched! I also played them rarely, maybe twice a month, and have never gigged them. I took great care not to scratch the shells, and I'm not a hard hitter either. They're in great shape and look hardly used!
Last year I replaced ALL the heads--the batter and resonant heads on all toms are Remo, the heads on each kick drum are Evans EMAD. The kicks have been tuned and matched to sound equal.
Overall, there are 8 toms. I currently have it set up with 7 toms. The upper 4 toms are mounted with Starmounts on top of the kick drums, the next 2 low toms have Starmounts and they are mounted on a stand, then there is the lowest floor tom. The Starmounts were included originally on one of the Rockstar kits, the other one I purchased Starmounts separately and upgraded them. They help greatly with noise and vibration isolation, especially for recording!
The snare is the original Tama 14", had new snare wires and heads installed and tuned at Music Manor a couple years ago.
For cymbals--there are too many cymbals! Many are Sabian and Paiste, a few are Zildjian, one crash is Tama, one crash is Soultone. Includes two hihat stands, and 3 pairs of hihats--one pair is Zildjian, one is Camber, the 3rd hihat set I can't remember if it's Zildjian or otherwise. There are a total of 4 different ride cymbals. A few cymbals had cracks in them, and were professionally cut down to make splashes or "ice bells". There is one Paiste china cymbal, it has a crack/broken edge. One of the Sabian crashes is cracked, and the Soultone crash has a small crack but still sounds great. I built a "cymbal display stand" to keep all the extra cymbals stored safely, and looks great for display. It's made out of red oak and has nylon cylinders to keep the center of the cymbals in good shape and prevent keyholing.
For cymbal stands, most are old school heavy duty Tama stands. There are boom stands, straight stands, and an awesome Tama triple stand that can hold 3 booms with 3 cymbals. The snare stand is a super high quality DW stand which was $160, and also an extra generic snare stand. One hihat stand is a heavy duty Tama, the other is generic. Double bass pedals are generic brand, they're adjusted nice and work well. The drum throne is a Roc-n-Soc.
Also included is a huge collection of hihat clutches (a dozen different ones!), a cowbell, a bunch of sticks and a stick bag, and gig bags/soft storage cases for one kick drum and half of the toms. Many other assorted accessories.
I also built a short drum riser for the whole set--its two huge pieces of plywood with pine beams on the bottom, dozens of 2" rubber spacers mounted on the bottom for vibration isolation, covered with gray carpet. I built it to keep the drum set's vibrations separate from the floor. It's included with the set if wanted.
