Nice birch-like drums, hardware inspired by Tama and Rogers-like lugs. Good quality, not the cheapest.

Also, Santana seems to be missing from many of these lists - early, typical stencil-brand in luauan and with banana-rail tom mounts. But nice wraps!

I have a pic somewhere....

I am pretty sure MAYA were made by TAMA/HOSHINO for the European market, friend of mine had a couple of sets and they reminded me alot of the Swingstars at the time. I think there were MIJ brands made for the European market....VESPER also leaps to mind!

No, Sir.
TAMA (second name of the company: Gakki) and HOSHINO (second name: Kougyou) were two totally different companies - with NO (!) link in-between them.
The lugs in the pic above clearly indicate that this is a Hoshino drumkit.

The lugs are different from the ones, early Tama's/ Star's used: see the pic below. The difference is the lower part of the lug: at Hoshino the little bump on the top is more flat and goes around the back part as well, while the bump at the Star's/ early Tama's can be seen only on the top of the lug. This is a significant difference.

Nevertheless both are copies of Rogers' 'beavertail' lugs.

Not sure if this is of any help at all - an extensive list of MIJ drum makers:

Hey Billyboo, do you think there's any chance you could post a slightly clearer pic of that Ibanez badge? I cant make out the words on the bottom of the badge.

Thank you for posting! Very, very interesting...

Please start a thread in Non-USA for this. This area is not really for this type of discussion. Thanks!

Back in 1963 I purchased my first set which were "Tempo" drums. I still have a badge and, no, they weren't "Tempro" but "Tempo". They served me well back then. I've looked and looked but have never seen this Japanese badge mentioned.
