    I purchased the 5 piece set in matte tan finish about a year ago and have been very satisfied with the quality so far. Also purchased the road pro stand set to go with it. I have changed all drum heads with Evans heads and put the original batter heads on the resonant side shortly after purchase. I may change the resonant heads to "real" ones but for right now I believe they sound pretty darn good as they are!! Added a port to the resonant bass head and a emad 2 for the batter side. The bass now sounds killer and improved playing performance also. This is the first kit for me in a long time (last kit was 1970s Ludwig)and the quality as with most things has come a long ways. I am very satisfied with Tama and believe these Silverstars offer high quality at a very competitive price. I would suggest finding a kit to play and judge for yourself from a reputable local dealer. If they wont set them and let you play em, keep on movin. Hope this helps, good luck and enjoy!!

    It's crazy how nice these sets are for the money. I don't have a Tamo Ash version of the Silverstar but I do have a regular Silverstar and it's a fine piece of arse if I do say so. Either version of any Silverstar will do brother, so just pick a color that you think is boobs and kablamo you're golden. : )

    Yeah, I was kind of surprised to see a 7-piece, birch shell pack at this price on a google search for 'tama birch'. I love my Royalstars, but I think it's time for some non-zola resonance; bring on the pure wood! But why the limited edition on this Tamo Ash finish?

    I think all of the Tamo Ash finishes are considered "Limited Edition". I'm sure both the configuration and it being a Silverstar Tamo Ash are the reasoning behind the whole "limited edition" concept.

    I have a set of the Limited Tamo Ash. Mine was apparently mistakenly shipped to Canada so it is a colour not normally available here. It sounds great. I love how compact it is. I really dig the 14x20 kick. And the steel snare is great!

    Great looking kit! What kind of snare dampener is that?

    I believe that's the Remo/Dave Weckl reactive one. It has an adjustable spring tension that controls how much the damper lifts off the head when the drum is struck.

    Oh yeah.... great looking kit!!!

    Thanks! I love the kit - except the 12" tom is pretty tricky to tune.

    Can't recall what kind of dampener it is, but it had someones name attached to it. Works ok if you want to cut out only a little of the ring of the drum. It stays pretty live, but gets rid of the main overtone.
