I Have A Tama RM Series Drum kit, and Every Where I've Read and Everyone I've talked to said they have no idea what it is. And I was just curious if anyone out there had any idea what it is? I will upload some pictures of the kit. TAMA 4 LIFE!!!

They were early 90's from memory. As far as I can recall they were regular Rockstars with seprerate lugs and special 'Gravure' (? I think...) finishes. The only finish I remember is the one yours is in that looks at first glance as if it were Birds Eye Maple...which it absolutely is not. It may well have been the only finish. I have seen the odd snare drum turn up with that finish on it too. A dredge through the catalogues on the Tama Website may tell you more than my 20 odd year old memories :)

Found a cataloge...my memory is ok :)

Looks like they were only available in 'standard' depths at first. And there were 3 finishes.

Hey Dan,

Same story as everyone for finding bits...Ebay and Craiglist my friend. There was a tom up on ebay last week, 12 or 13. I've not seen any kits for a while, but I've not been looking either.

As for facebook...not my thing...

Cheers

Andrew
