Men först lite läckra bilder på några av de limited edition produkter TAMA tagit fram för att fira sitt jubileum. Många ”VILL HA!!!” produkter blir det.


Since the 1970s, acrylic drums have been sought after for their unique sound and sleek look. Over the last two decades, TAMA has released limited edition acrylic drum kits of our own, starting with the Starclassic Mirage in 2007. To commemorate TAMA's beginnings, the Starclassic Mirage will return as a limited edition 50th Anniversary model.

Characterized by strong attack and thunderous tone, Starclassic Mirage's seamless acrylic shells delivers unmatched sound and stunning looks. In addition to its controlled, punchy, and rich sound, acrylic remains unaffected by changing climates, making it perfect for use in any environment. The darker Black Nickel shell hardware perfectly complements the clear shells, ensuring that audiences and drummers alike will be instantly captivated by their stage presence.


Released just 2 years after the birth of the TAMA brand, Superstar drums were dynamic and powerful, laying the groundwork for the future of TAMA's sound. Now, almost 50 years later, the original Superstar drums have been revived as a Limited Edition model to
celebrate the 50th Anniversary of TAMA Drums.

Superstar was the world's first drum kit to utilize an all-Birch shell, producing the perfect sound for the emerging genres of the time - a sound that captivated the top drummers in the world. The groundbreaking 6-ply/9mm shell design was crucial to Superstar's monumental success. Thicker than modern drums, these shells achieved powerful attack and deep low end. Honoring TAMA's 50th Anniversary, the original shells, period correct shell hardware, and matching interior finish deliver a faithful reproduction of the original Superstar.
Available in 4 popular original colors: Aqua Marine, Cherry Wine, Super Mahogany, and Super Maple. After 50 years, we celebrate the origin of TAMA's sound with the Superstar Reissue.


In 1980, the Mastercraft Bell Brass snare drum was born. Designed to match the explosive sounds of a new decade in music, the Bell Brass shell delivered the purest snare sound ever achieved. With the original shell sand-cast in the same manner of top quality cymbals and, of course, bells, the shell began as a 12mm cast that was hand-turned down to 3mm thick. Burnished to a natural brass patina for a tone that grew sweeter, warmer, and richer with every passing year, it's no wonder the Mastercraft Bell Brass snare drum became the most coveted snare drum of the last 50 years.

Widely used in heavy rock music of the 80s and 90s, TAMA's Bell Brass snare drum came to simply be known as "THE TERMINATOR". As aggressive of a sound it produced, it's versatility was unmatched as it found its way into the hands of the world's top Jazz & Fusion drummers of the era.
Faithfully reproduced to original specifications as much as modern technology allows, the Mastercraft "The Bell Brass" snare drum 50th Anniversary Reissue brings the iconic & timeless sound to drummers once again.


Since its release in 1993, the Iron Cobra has been the world's most highly rated pedal. At the core of the Iron Cobra series sits originality, and an unwavering commitment to constant innovation and evolution. With numerous limited edition models over the last two decades, this 50th Anniversary Limited Edition model serves as a special celebration of the Iron Cobra's long and storied history. Featuring two colorful designs, Coral Swirl and Psychedelic Rainbow, the Iron Cobra Marble Edition pedals are visually stunning, yet again setting the Iron Cobra apart from all others in its class.


Popular amongst vintage drum lovers, the Mastercraft Steel snare drum features a classic chrome finish and center groove design for a distinct and understated look. This 50th Anniversary Reissue model features a 1.2mm steel shell and die-cast hoops producing a clean, bright attack with clear and crisp resonance. Complete with full-surface snare wires for enhanced articulation, the TAMA 50th Limited Mastercraft Steel Reissue snare drum perfectly delivers the sound of the 80s.


In the 1980s, TAMA's Mastercraft Rosewood snare drum was the first and only drum of its kind. As a hard and dense material, Rosewood is commonly used as guitar fretboards, and at the time was only found on drums as a single outer-ply veneer. Full Rosewood drums are extremely difficult to produce, but their pure sound and dark tone makes them extremely popular among drummers looking for a new sound. Not long after the original release of the Mastercraft Rosewood snare drum, the TAMA brand became synonymous with Rosewood.
This 50th Anniversary Limited Edition model faithfully reproduces the sound of the past. Familiar to those who were there at the beginning, and an exciting new discovery to those who weren't.


Released in 1980, fans of the Mastercraft Artwood snare drum have eagerly awaited its reissue. Known for its obviously stunning looks, this snare drum is adorned with a beautifully stained multi-section center wood inlay. The 9mm/6ply all-Birch shell delivers significant low-mid tone and clear projection. For a detailed & sensitive snare response, the drum features TAMA's unique Roller Action Strainer, an innovative full-contact snare wire design that utilizes a single on/off lever & dual guide rollers for easy & versatile adjustment.
This faithful reproduction of TAMA's original Mastercraft Artwood snare drum is an amazingly beautiful celebration of TAMA's 50th Anniversary.
