OVERVIEW

The focused attack of birch paired with the enhanced lows of bubinga.

This Tama Starclassic Performer Bubinga-Birch 4-Piece Shell Pack includes a 22 x 16 in. kick drum, 12 x 8 in. and a 16 x 16 in. floor tom.

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 five plies of birch and three inner-plies of bubinga. The rack and floor toms have 6mm shells with four plies of birch and three inner-plies of bubinga.

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.

Sliding Tom holder
The Tama Starclassic Performer's tom-holder expands setting flexibility with a sliding connector unit that moves back and forth up to 2". Simply loosening one bolt allows you to adjust the proximity of the toms.

Die-Cast hoops
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.

Claw hooks
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
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.

    Comments about Tama Starclassic Performer B/B Limited Edition 3-Piece Shell Pack:

    I've been playing for 37 years and this is the First Tama I've ever owned. This set in particular came with great drum heads, so I didn't have to purchase new ones. It was easy to assemble, and with the tom lock and the locks on the legs of the floor tom, setup was so much simpler. The construction and engineering of the Starclassics are nicely designed to where Tama thought of everything right down to the lugs. At first I thought it may have too much ring to it to where I would have to use dampeners, but when I put it on stage it sounded incredible. I can use this setup for Rock, Blues, Surf, Rockabilly, Oldies, and If I dampen the heads Country music. If you can only have one, then this versatile set would be the one. Also I bought the Starclassic B/B snare and it was so responsive that I may use it for all of my shows.

        Comments about Tama Starclassic Performer B/B Limited Edition 3-Piece Shell Pack:

        First off.. The measurements for this kit is all wrong... The kick is 24x16.. Rack tom is 13x9. And surprisingly the floor tom is actually 16x16.. The drums still sound amazing but musicians friend needs to get their stuff together
