Hello, everyone, new member
« on: September 23, 2023, 09:19:19 AM »
I recently joined having added a Strike module to my Roland VDrum kit.  I am really impressed with the module.  I?ve been an acoustic hybrid  / electric drummer since the mid 70?s and have owned and toured with wide variety of eDrums, Sundrums, Tama TechStar, Simmons, MPC and Roland VDrums / SPD-S.  I?ve owned and been a fan of Alesis products for many years and they have proven to be quite innovative? Dating back to their revolutionary ADAT digital recorders in the early 80?s.  I appreciate the support you give your members and I?ll do my best to add value as I see fit.

Oh wow. Tama TechStar! I haven't heard that name in so long. I never had a set or even played them, but I used to want them so badly.

Welcome to the forum.

Yes, the Tama TechStar riffed on the Simmons bandwagon.  It sounded very similar, was really well built (like all Tama gear) and was significantly cheaper than its Simmons counterpart.  I sold it a few years ago to a guy who was looking for that exact kit (size / color, etc) from Atlanta.  He was delighted after 20 years of searching to finally find one.  To each his own.

I appreciate it Andy and I look forward to adding value to the site.
