Elusive, yet enticing…acrylic drums exist as a relic of "cool" from a time when music was raw and adventurous, and drumming was as distinctive as it was driven. Rivaled only by their surreal appearance, the sound and presence of acrylic drums was undeniable. Sadly, the acrylic sets of old suffered from the same deficiencies as other drums of the period - inadequate hardware, inconsistent construction, and exorbitant pricing. In short: Drums that were made pre-Tama.
Fast-forward decades. Tama has taken advantage of time and technology to bring you back to the sharp, full-bodied sound of classic acrylic shell drums—minus any of the drawbacks. Bolstered by a full complement of Silverstar features that include low-mass single lugs, stabilizing claw hooks, and the sustain-enhancing Star-Mount System—the Mirage rig is so impressive, yet so practically priced, you may find yourself questioning your own senses.

Matt Garstka (Animals As Leaders): "With clear attack and punchy bottom end, this kit accentuates all the details of your playing - good and bad. Hearing yourself on this kit is like hearing it in HD. I think the acrylic material coupled with the shorter toms are responsible for this HD like quality. And the kick drum is superb."
Please note: Cymbals not included.
Use only a very soft damp cloth when cleaning acrylic surfaces. Never use chemical cleaners containing spirit solvent, such as alcohol, acetone, gasoline, benzene. These can cause surface cracks.
Avoid direct sunlight and places with high heat and humidity. The drum shells can deform and degrade.
