Focused attack of birch paired with rich lows that only bubinga delivers.
This Tama Starclassic Performer B/B Yesteryear is an exclusive 4-piece drum shell pack that provides sweet, deep hybrid tone, exhibiting the focused attack of birch paired with enhanced lows of bubinga. The Yesteryear Edition features stained bass drum hoops, retro-brand wraps and a Fiberskin-type head for throwback style.
This Tama shell pack includes a 22" x 16" kick drum, 10" x 7" and 12" x 8" toms and 16" x 16" floor tom. The tom shells are 6mm thick with 4 outer plies of birch, and 3 inner plies of bubinga. The kick drum shell is 8mm thick with 5 outer plies of birch, and 3 inner plies of bubinga. The MTH909 slideable tom-holder gives you nearly limitless setting flexibility.
The Tama Star-Cast Mounting System has always provided maximum resonance and stability for Tama's pro drums. Now it has a more streamlined designed, making it easier to position tom drums closer together. In addition, a switch to aluminum provides lighter weight and even truer tonal vibration. Star-Cast is also now plated to match your drum's shell hardware.
Tama Starclassic Performer's completely redesigned tom-holder expands setting flexibility with a sliding connector unit that moves back and forth up to 50mm (2 inches). Simply unloosening one bolt allows you to adjust the proximity of the toms. Now any sized drum can be exactly positioned with ease.
Hoops not only affect drum tuning, they also affect drum sound. That's why the choice of hoops is so important to the designers of Tama's professional drum lines. For the Starclassic Performer B/B, 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.
Starclassic'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.
Tama's MSB30 die-cast bass drum spur brackets hold 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 simplify set up.
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 drum heads are featured on all Tama Starclassic Performer drums (except bass 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 Yesteryear Classic Edition 4-Piece Shell Pack:
Let me start off by saying... This kit is AMAZING..!!! I have own just about every name brand drums and this kit can hang with the best of them. The packaging was top notch, and the wrap is absolutely stunning. Now lets talk about the sound. The sound is incredible..!! Came with Evans G2 clears on the batter side and I placed and Evans EMAD 2 on the kick and it sounds amazing. I am very happy with this kit and will be getting the Tama 40th Anniversary Starphonic snare to go with it. My current kit is a Mapex Saturn IV and this sounds just as good with the Birch/Bubinga shells. The hardware is top notch as well. If you get this kit, you will not be disappointed...!!!!
