Great kit for the gigging drummer

JamieM, 15.11.2015
I've been looking for a small kit to use for a while now as hauling around my larger kit became a pain for the gigs I was playing. I was very close to purchasing a sonor safari kit(Which I'm sure would have been great too)..then I stumbled across the 2015 version of the tama silverstar metro jam kit. What sold me on this was the Tama quality as I have a tama superstar hyperdrive kit already. I knew this would be a very good kit for the price, plus I could interchange drums as they are similar kits. Also the shells are made from birch, opposed to poplar on most other bop kits in this price range.

One thing I will note is the shells need a little attention on arrival if you want to get the best out of them, in particular the outer rebated area of the bearing edges needed a quick rub with a cloth and sand paper to get rid of any uneven areas in the wood that would affect the head sitting 100% flush. Also the wrap on the kick drum does not sit completely flush at the bottom of the kit where the end and start point meet, it is fine though as it cannot be expected to have a wrap like a 1000 euro kit. It doesn't bother me seen as it's on the bottom of the drum.

Bass drum: The kick drum is very good if you know how to tune your drums and make a dampening pillow this drum sounds great, the tuning range is surprisingly good for a drum of this size. It really sings up higher and has a great thump/attack with a nice bottom end at LPP(Lowest possible pitch). The bass drum riser built in is absolutely brilliant. It is adjustable with a drum key to incorporate all positions. There is even a recessed groove in the bass drum hoop to allow for the pedal's chain to move freely, I have not seen this feature in any other of it's competitors. The bass drum spurs are the best I've seen on any kit, tama's spurs are the most solid by far.

10" Tom: This tom really punches above it's weight. Tuned high it cuts through over everything and tuned low it still has that attack with the pleasant thump for flams and build ups. The shorter depth is also very handy for positioning.

13" x 11" floor tom: This drum sounds like a 14" x 12" tom. Great tone and tuning flexibility, with the added ease of easy placement due to it's smaller size. I have read some reviews saying the legs are a little short online, I sit the drum at max level on the legs and it's perfect for me, that's saying something as I'm 6 foot 5 so it should not be a problem for most drummers if I find it acceptable.

Hardware: The shell set comes with a tama tom holder that sits into the bass drum percetly. It comes with a memory lock too which keeps everything right where you want it to be. This is a quality tom holder that allows for perfect placement. As I said earlier both the bass drum riser and bass drum spurs are excellent.

In conclusion, this kit is excellent value, for the gigging drummer its a life saver. It looks very professional and sounds big! My band were especially fond of the rack tom. For the money this kit is band on!

Sounds good, easy to carry

Stengo, 22.05.2015
Through the small boiler super transportable. The kick makes despite the small size neat pressure. The felts that come on the toms are ok, but could sound great.
Overall a very recommendable set for all, which it also often times to transport times and it not always particularly cumbersome need.
