Yes, I owned a set just like that in your photo image and have been playing Tamas for well over 30 years. I'm glad there using maple on these because back when I had them they were more of a composite. They also had interior wooden hoops for durability purposes, but I felt did injustice to the tonal quality of the shells. But outside of that they were decent and durable drums.
