I stumbled across this kit for sale on my local kijiji (Toronto). Not really in a position to purchase, more just an interesting find to share with the board.

I believe this is one of the more elusive and rare finishes, am I correct in this assessment?...has anyone else stumbled across this finish over the years? (I haven't but I know there are others here with lots more experience with Tama history then myself).

Short excerpt from the ad here:

"Vintage 1979 Tama Superstar drums kit in the extremely rare Super Sunburst finish. Kit consists of 12x8/13x9/14x10 upper toms, 16x14 floor tom, a 22x14 kick and an even rarer 14x6.5 matching Kingbeat snare."

A few pics here:

FlyingHorse. I'm the seller, however we have to take any further discussions off line.

Not sure how the ad ended up on Toronto Kijiji, but that's kewl... the more eyes the better.

The ad pretty much sums up the history as I have learned from the wonderful Gurus on this forum.

Yak,
Incredible!
I posted the pics and mentioned the ad strictly for the rareness and wow factor of this (your) kit Clap
Should have known it was someone on this board who owns it!
Good luck!
