Default Latest Star (Royal Star) drum shells: also early Tama drums?


I own two Royal Star drumsets with the same configuration 12"/13"/16" + 22". (Some of you may already have seen them on my Star-website, lug type 6370.) Apparently - due to the lug type and the style of the double tom holder - these are some of the very latest Star drums, before they switched to Tama.

Here's the configuration of the shells:
pure shell thickness itself: 8.5 mm, 7-ply (lacquered inside, maple?),
plus rerings: also 8.5 mm thick, 25 mm high, 7-ply as well.
The bearing edges have approx. 30/35 to the inside and are rounded to the outside.
The shells are really, really very massive.

Has anyone knowledge that one of the very early Tama series included the same shells, too? Perhaps the drums with the early Tama 'Percussion Instrument' badges on?

Thanks, Ralf
