Overview

The revolutionary handmade flagship line from Tama.

By re-examining every detail of the Starclassic series to enhance shell resonance, Tama took the series to the next level. Favored by furniture makers for its beauty and durability, walnut offers a naturally EQ'd tone that is excellent for both the stage or in studio. The STAR Walnut shells project booming low end with enough cut to penetrate any mix.

STAR drums feature a rounded bearing edge to provide more contact between the head and shell, allowing vibration to travel from the head to the shell more efficiently. To maximize resonance, STAR drums feature a brand new mounting concept to achieve this goal, the Super Resonant Mounting System. This mounting system has three contact points with the drum. Two are located on the batter hoop, and one is located on the bottom hoop. These three points create the largest possible theoretical triangle on the drum. By placing the third contact point as far as possible on the bottom hoop, using the support arm and rubber at each contact point, Tama was able to reduce the stress on the shell and hoop and increase natural resonance.

The newly designed lugs for STAR drums have a luxurious, sophisticated look, as well as an extremely low-mass bridge construction for minimum shell contact. The bass drum claw hooks follow the same principle by "floating" on the surface of the bass drum hoops. STAR drums also feature an imprinted badge and small wooden air hole grommet, which further reduce the weight of materials on the shell and improve resonance and sound.

Hoops are a crucial element to a drum's sound and ease of tuning. STAR drums feature die-cast zinc hoops, which are manufactured by injecting molten metal into molds. Die-cast hoops are denser and more consistent in shape than triple-flanged hoops, which are manufactured by bending metal plates. Sonically, die-cast hoops provide crisper attack, greater projection and a more focused and powerful tone. Die-cast hoops also make tuning easier and keep drums in tune longer because of their density and consistency in shape. These hoops combine with the rich, resonant STAR drum shells for a very well-balanced, full-bodied sound.

Cymbals, snare and hardware sold separately.
