Default Re: 1979 Tama Superstars in Desert Burst

Cheers guys! Yes, apparently it wasn't released in the US in that finish, just the more common sunburst popularised by Billy Cobham. He played one like this on a UK clinic back then and the story attached to this kit is that they were THE drums used then. It obviously made sense for him to use a kit from a Tama dealer in the UK, which explains why he would be playing a kit not released in the US. I've no way of proving any of this however!
