“Return of the Rhythmatist” : Stunning Blue Sparkle Stewart Copeland Signature Kit [Winter NAMM 2008]

United States
English
Anaheim, CA, 14 Jan 2008 — Stewart Copeland, Tama’s longest-term drum endorser, now has a signature set to go with his signature snare. However, unlike his signature brass-shelled snare, which is a regular best-seller with Tama, Copeland’s “Return of the Rhythmatist” Starclassic Maple kit is limited to only 50 sets worldwide, approximately 15 of which are destined for the U.S.A. The stunning “Police Blue Sparkle” set is based on the specs of Copeland’s own kit used on the 2007 Police World Reunion Tour. Two versions, Complete and Standard, will be available.


  • The S112S Standard 11pc shell kit lists for $9,750.00.
  • The S142S Complete 14 pc kit features lists for $12,800.00
  • An optional hardware/stand package for 11 pc set lists for $2,180.00
  • An optional hardware package for the 14pc set lists for $2,700.00



Stewart Copeland is Tama’s first and longest term artist endorser, with over 30 years affiliation with Tama drums. Famous for both his work with the Police as well as a long and successful career as composer for film and orchestral works, Copeland recently released his solo album, “Return of the Rhythmatist,” as well as the movie, “Everybody Stares,” which documents the original Police concert tours through the lens and perspective of Copeland’s own camera.
