Check out these Tama Superstar 12x13" and 13x14" (depth x diameter) mounted toms from the early 1980s! These drums were top-of-the-line rockers in their day and still sound great! Featuring 6-ply Birch shells, 45-degree bearing edges, and a Cherry Wine lacquered finish, this pair of toms was recently brought into our shop on trade. The hoops, tension rods, and backing screws all appear to be original, and the tom-mounting brackets are in good shape with very little ovaling and no stripped threads. The shells are in-round with no bearing edge damage, and there's only one small area of minor ply separation on the batter side of the 13".
Of course you can expect to find signs of wear-and-tear typical for drums of this age, including scratches, dust and fingerprints, a badge with bent corners on the 14", some spots of rust and corrosion on the hoops, lugs, and tension rods, and well-worn, mismatched heads that are due for replacement (see pics for examples of condition issues).
Please don't hesitate to contact us with questions or to request additional photos. And remember, this pair of Tama Superstar mounted toms ships FREE within the continental United States. Buyers outside the continental U.S. should message us for a shipping quote prior to purchase.
