Default Tama Superstar

Is this 1980's Tama Superstar worth $600? That's what he will sell for, thanks.

They look clean- no rust. (metal was prone to rust I had an 11pc all trad size toms- aquamarine in 81/82)

If you can deal with the Floor Tom size mounted toms.

Heck Yes ...Those are beautiful vintage drums
I would get serious with the seller and offer him seven bills
But I would not pass them up if he was to stand firm for his eight

He'll do $600 minus that brass snare.

I'd say $600 without the snare is a great deal. The kit is beautiful but that snare looks kinda beat up. Those super deep mounties may present a bit of a set up challenge, but that kit appears to be in really great shape.

Prepare for a workout; that bass drum was like "hauling furniture".

I think $600 is a good deal. Those power tom sizes might make for difficult tom positioning, but I have owned Superstars for 31 years(in that finish) and they are bulletproof.

Have to agree with everyone... the Superstar kits from this time period are just great drums! The only real down-side are those "power" rack toms! I owned a Superstar kit from this same time period, in a beautiful Cherry Wine finish. Just fantastic sounding drums! I did have "standard depth" toms, though... 8x10, 8x12 and 9x13. And, yes, they are heavy drums!
