The focused attack of birch paired with the enhanced lows of bubinga.
This Tama Starclassic Performer Bubinga/Birch 5-Piece Shell Pack includes a 22" x 20" kick drum, 10" x 8" and 12" x 9" rack toms, and 14" x 12" and 16" x 14" floor toms.
The distinct and traditional sound of birch has made it the choice of many professional drummers for years, but Tama believes it's time to take birch in an entirely different direction. By using bubinga wood for the inner-layers of a birch shell on Starclassic Performer drums, Tama has created a new sound with a sweeter and deeper tone”the focused attack of birch paired with the enhanced lows of bubinga. The kick drum has an 8mm shell with 5 plies of birch and 3 inner-plies of bubinga. The rack and floor toms have 6mm shells with 4 plies of birch and 3 inner-plies of bubinga.
Star-Cast Mounting System
The Tama drum shell pack's Star-Cast Mounting System provides maximum resonance and stability. 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, 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.

Comments about Tama Starclassic Performer B/B 5-piece Shell Pack:
This is one of the best kits I've ever played period, when one get's to this point in price, all of the manufacturers will provide great sounding kits. For my style and usage, this kit is just perfect. I personally use it in a studio along with live playing. It is great for any style but for light jazz, I would recommend a smaller bass drum because the 22 on this kit is really powerful.
This is a great drum set, the die cast hoops and starcast mounts are probably my when comparing the hardware to other high end manufacturers.
The finish on my kit was excellent, i have the black cloud and silver lining finish and it is probably one of the best sparkle finishes I've seen. The shells themselves have a great amount of punch along with low end due to the hybrid configuration.
The toms have the perfect amount of sustain and the bass drum has a focused thud that you cant really find in a "traditional" wood bass. The evans g2's that came with the kit really brought out the low tones but the drums can have a wide tuning range due to the die cast hoops.
