no, its probably a superstar. in the 80s the superstars were solid birch and very high end. they are comparable to todays starclassic performers. the new superstars are mid level...they also reintroduced the imperialstars as low end sets, and they were higher end than that originally.Call me Gideon":1dmb6etu said:Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but Tama just came out with the Superstars, right? That's an old ass Pantera video. I don't know if Superstar was an older model that Tama just recently brought back out, for sure or not. Unless that's the case, that's not a Superstar. I would hope that Vinnie's playing something a little higher end than that anyways. So...to answer the question, I don't know what it is but I'd say it's not a Superstar. It MIGHT be a Tama Rockstar.
Not badmouthing Tama cause I love them, but Peart wasn't happy with the Superstars actually. That's how the Artstar prototypes ended up getting made (the candy apple red kit).AmnestysLowEnd":2l8o1joc said:Dude Vinnie switched to pearl but if you watch the Cowboys video he plays the same set with a pearl reso!!
