Tama and Drum Workshop (DW) jointly bought the bankrupt Camco Drum Company.
As part of the deal, DW received the Camco tooling and manufacturing equipment while Tama received the Camco name, designs, engineering and patent rights.
The drums were manufactured at Hoshino's subsidiary, Tama Seisakusho, which had opened in 1962 to manufacture Ibanez guitars and amplifiers.
Hoshino, the family name of the founder, translates to "star field," thus the selection of the "Star Drums" brand name.
