In Japan, Pearl is actually much cheaper than Tama.

Maybe because of the brand equity and the recall. When you say Pearl, you have Dennis Chambers, Slipknot (JJ), RHCP (Chad), Kiss (Singer), Omar Hakim.

With Tama you have... my personal recall, only Metallica (Lars). That's pretty much it. Portnoy mayb but he's more famous for his signature cymbals (Max Stax) than his drums.

To be honest, I'd also pick up a Pearl instead of a Tama only because I'm more familiar with the brand.

Personally I would choose Pearl over Tama because of one thing: TOM MOUNTS. I think Pearl's Optimounts are just better designed compared to any other tom mount out there. So everything else being equal (wood, finish, hardware, etc), tom mounts ang deciding factor para sa akin.

On the other hand, they still have dave lombardo (slayer) and charlie benante (anthrax).  John Tempesta is also on board.  Kulang lang sa Megadeth.

Oh yeah, yeah. Now that I think about it, maybe that's it: Tama has a lot of metal drummers in its roster, and not so much of the jazz and session guys. Popularity wise, jazz and session drummers take the marketing cake. Maybe a lot of European drummers have Tama kits  :lol:

probably because audiophile came in late representing tama. nung early 90s, wala naman tama masyado dito. premier ang binibenta ng audiophile at peavey for a while.

mas maraming pearl owners pero pulos entry to middle level. kasi si JB pag nagbenta, mas nakakaenganyo dahil sa mga hardware/cymbal packages. tska mas maraming branch si JB.

si tama kasi, usually kit only ang mabibili mo. syempre sa mga starting drummer, gusto nila, zildjian cymbals kasi sikat.

either way, parehas maganda. for kits, i would go for tama. for pedals and hardware, pearl.
hahaha ako binibiyak ko muna yung wetpaks para makita kung may yellow thingy hahahaha

Nung tumingin ako ng Tama Starclassic Performer, Bubinga, Maple at Pearl Masters, Reference kits dati, I find Pearl to have the best value for money. The drums will probably have similar qualities but Pearl is cheaper with better hardware.

Does Pearl have anything in line with Tama Star or Tama Starclassic Japan?

Pearl kasi ang mabenta nung 90's. Kahit yung mga biyehorng musikero sa japan nun yan ang binibili (inuuwi or dito na binibili pag uwi nila). Sobrang sikat nun yung pearl export, marami ako kilalang drummer(mga banda banda nung 90's)  ang kit nila pearl export. So baka yun yon, haha ako ang kit ko din pearl export.



----------------
Binalik pala nila yung export series ngayon, pero ang tinutukoy ko yung lumang exports na isang diretsong buo yung mounting lugs at sobrang sikat na starter kit nung 90's

taiwan lahat yung na mention

but if you buy a pearl kit in japan, then its probably made by their japan factory. the japan factory only caters to their domestic market

Sa mga young or beginners kse Pearl agad ang nalalaman nilang magandang drums, kaya pag bibili sila or nagka pera eh Pearl ang preferred nila. Isa pa, madaming outlets ang JB Music ngayon compared sa Audiophile na carrier ng TAMA.

The marketing strategy of the distributor plays a big role.  :)

But for me, TAMA pa rin. hehe. I love the designs, quality and sound.  :-D

Features wise, halos parehas lang yung mga higher end models ng tama and pearl pero sa tingin ko kaya mas maraming players ng pearl kasi gawa ng export series, mas attractive kasi yung wood hoops tignan kesa sa bass drum hoops ng mga entry level kits ng tama :-D

Maybe because Pearl is more widely available than Tama...napapansin ko mas madaming tindahan ang may Pearl, aside from the major music stores. Mas accessible sa gustong bumili ng kit.

Hindi po kaya dahil mas naunang naitatag ang Pearl (1946) kesa sa Tama (1971) :-D

Ewan, nabasa ko lang po hehehe... cheers mga katambol :razz:

I love 'em both by the way...Tama would be my primary choice if Pearl didn't exist... :-\
