Star_logo

Today we know, that Star also used to be sold under a number of other names. Due to
some characteristic details of the drums this can be considered to be true.
Namely the style of the lugs but, also tom brackets, shell constructions and the design
of the badges are indicators for a drumset, telling us that it was made by Star (or not).

Besides Bollero and DrumMate, the following brands of that time are believed to be
made by Star as well (I don’t claim that this list is already complete!):
Apollo (two types) - Barclay - BenTone - Boston - Carlton - Champion - DrumCraft - Ideal -
Jason - King’s Stone - Lido Supreme (two types) - Lotus - Lucky Star - Lyra (three types) -
Magnum - Majestic - Mitchel - Ralston - Revelle - Saturn - Stewart - SupreMacy - Tempo -
Tulio - U.S.Mercury - Werco.
Typical is the wording World’s Supreme Quality or World’s Finest Quality on almost all
badges from that time. And nearly all of these brands appeared in the USA only.

List to be continued ! If you have a drumset with another badge and you think, it might
be a Star: please kindly send my a foto and let’s discuss the matter.
