Tama Drums are a brand of drum kits and hardware manufactured by the Japanese musical instrument company, Hoshino Gakki. They began manufacturing drums in 1961 under the name “Star Drums”, named the owner Hoshino which translates to “star field”. The drums were manufactured at Hoshino’s subsidiary, Tama Seisakusho, which had opened in 1962 to manufacture Ibanez guitars and amplifiers. By 1974, Hoshino decided to make a concerted effort to make high-quality drums and hardware and start marketing its drums under the Tama brand. Tama was the name of the owner’s wife, and is also a homophone with the Japanese word meaning “jewel”. “Star” continues to be used in the names of many Tama drum models to this day.

Tama have immersed their activity in direct drive bass drum pedals for years. Direct drive pedals provide a unique benefit – immediate energy conversion and accelerated beater movement. However, they realised the opportunity to design a direct drive pedal with perfect balance and alignment of three critical performance elements: Power, Speed and Feel.

Tama identified three critical design components: The direct drive linkage, the drive cam, and the drive/footboard connection angle. They worked closely with a stylistically diverse group of Tama artists to further their understanding of what high-level players want and need from a direct drive pedal. The back-and-forth product team/artist dialog allowed them to master subtle mechanical relationships and angle alignments. This ultimately revealed a design method to overcome feel and power challenges Tama feel are inherent to some other direct drive pedals. They named this mechanical design the Dynamic Synchronization System.

Tama Dyna-Sync Series Pedals define a new power-speed-feel balance in a direct drive pedal and shatters direct drive pedal assumptions. This pedal offers drummers of all styles and abilities the opportunity to utilise the wide range of pedal adjustments to discover a differentiated direct drive feel.
