Drums to fit a player's expression in every genre, style, mood and technique.
Starclassic Bubinga shells are made slightly thicker than those in Tama's Starclassic Maple series to provide a more aggressive attack, a fuller deep and dark tone, and more powerful resonance. Numerous options are available to meet the varied and critical needs of professional drummers including a selection of more than 30 different shell sizes. Starclassic Bubinga is simply an unprecedented combination of sight and sound.
African bubinga wood is approximately 53% harder than maple and birch. Acoustically speaking, bubinga provides very sharp and aggressive attack combined with unbelievably rich and fat lows. Tama's 9-ply, 6mm bubinga shells (the bass is 7mm) are slightly thicker than their maple drums which allow the drums to speak to their fullest.
The Star-Cast Mounting System has always provided maximum resonance and stability for Tama's drums. A streamlined design makes it easier to position toms closer together, while a switch to aluminum provides lighter weight and truer tonal vibration. Hoops affect drum tuning and drum sound, which is why Tama uses zinc die-cast hoops, which are manufactured by injecting molten metal into molds. The rest of the drums are fitted with die-cast hoops for consistent tuning, crisper attack and powerful rim shots.
Starclassic Bubinga'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 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 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.
The Hold Tight washer is a cup-shaped stainless steel washer that contains a rubber ring so the tension rod pushes both the cup washer and the rubber ring. Normally, vibrations will eventually loosen the tension rod. But the softness of Hold Tight's rubber ring keeps it in contact with both the tension rod and the hoop at all times and maintains friction between them so that tension is always preserved.
Evans heads are featured on all Starclassic 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.
