I played lots of good gigs with it. It is loud and punchy. Also, set is very heavy. I owned lots of sets but this one is the heaviest. In this sale only five shells and tom mounts are included, rest of the stands and cymbals in pictures arefor demonstration only. I was told when I bought it in GC that it was built in 1995. I tried to find out if it was true but Tama Web site is not very helpful. I visited several forums and by the look of the badges and being built i Japan it could be. Here are serial numbers for each drum so you can do some research yourself if you’d like: snare-028625, kick- 028782, 14″ tom-028670, 12″ tom-028860, 10 tom- 028881. I’ll be glad to answer any questions. The item “Tama Starclassic 5 piece set 1995, white marine pearl” is in sale since Wednesday, January 25, 2017.
