1976-77 Tama Superstar 12/14/16/24/14 Birch (Camco shells)
1976-77 Tama Superstar 5pc birch. 12/14/16/24/14 SN INCLUDES fiber cases for all!
Originally thought to be 1977 as that was the first year of superstar official production. But these drums may actually 1976 drums as they have thinner shells and reinforcement rings which are not present on first appearance in the 1977 Tama catalog.
Some think these are surplus Camco shells from when Tama bought them out in 1976-1977 that gor used for prototype superstars.
This kit may be 1/2 of a double bass kit based on the badge placement of the rack toms. It makes sense if this was originally a 12-13-14-15 rack tom config that was a standard offering at the time.
All birch shells with natural maple finish, all hardware is original BUT the BD spurs and the snare throw off.
Shown is part of the 1977 Tama catalog which was the initial release of this kit.
