The evolution of Starclassic from maple, birch, Bubinga, birch/Bubinga continues, and now - after intense analysis, rigorous research, development, and product testing - we have arrived at the latest Starclassic modern development, Starclassic Walnut/Birch.
6mm, 4ply Birch + 2 inner ply American Black Walnut
8mm, 5ply Birch + 2 inner ply American Black Walnut
The hybrid shell exhibits the focused attack of birch paired with the firm and warm of Walnut. This sound is not only punchy but sweet and mellow. When you beat the drums once, excellent tone will surround you.
The Walnut/Birch hybrid shell will make your drum life state of the art.
Star-Cast Mounting System
The Star-Cast Mounting System on this Tama drum shell pack provides maximum resonance and stability for Tama's drums. A streamlined design makes it easier to position toms closer together for greater ease and comfort. Aluminum provides lighter weight and even truer tonal vibration.
Hoops not only affect drum tuning, but they also affect drum sound. For the Starclassic Series, Tama chose zinc die-cast hoops, which are manufactured by injecting molten metal into molds. Die-cast hoops have more density and are more consistent in shape than triple-flanged hoops, which are manufactured by bending metal plates. Die-cast hoops make tuning more consistent and easier to achieve because the tension bolts always contact the hoop properly. Drums fitted with die-cast hoops also offer crisper attack, clear and resonant highs, and much more powerful rim shots.
Tama Starclassic Performer's claw hooks feature rubber spacers that help protect wood hoops from damage. The hooks and hoops work as one unit and won't separate or rattle, even on loose tunings.
Kick drum spur bracket
Tama's MSB30 die-cast bracket holds the spur bracket securely, thanks to the same powerful hinge mechanism used on the MTB30 mounting bracket. Unique memory markers found on the folding spur bracket help to simplify set up.
Air-cushioned floor tom legs
Starclassic's Air Pocket rubber feet feature a special air chamber that eliminates the transfer of vibrations to the floor (which chokes sustain and sound) and absorbs shock for better playing.
Evans heads are featured on all Starclassic drums (except kick drum front heads). On the rack and floor toms, Genera G2 2-ply clear batter heads and Genera G1 1-ply clear bottom heads provide both durability and solid sound. Starclassic bass drums are fitted with Genera EQ4 clear batter heads.
Throne, snare, hardware, and cymbals not included.
