Don't Forget

Focused attack of birch paired with rich lows that only bubinga delivers.

This Tama Starclassic Performer B/B is a 5-piece drum shell pack that provides sweet and deep hybrid tone, exhibiting the focused attack of birch paired with the enhanced lows of bubinga.

This Tama shell pack includes a 22" x 18" kick drum, 10" x 8" and 12" x 9" toms, and 14" x 12" and 16" x 14" floor toms. 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 tom 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 5-Piece Shell Pack with 22" Bass Drum:

I read the great reviews on these drums. Let me tell you they are all true. The sound is super. They have the strong attack and the bottom end is amazing! I love the punch of the 14 floor tom. All the drums sound bigger than there size. They have great projection. This wood combination is a winner. I have played Pearl for years. My last Peal set was all maple. They sound great. But these drums have more punch and deep depth. This is my first Tama set and the quality is very good.
I love them ! The drums tuned up very easily except for the 16 floor tom. It was more of a challenge. Truly a pro drum set at a great price. I choose these over DW AND I am not looking back.

      Comments about TAMA Starclassic Performer B/B 5-Piece Shell Pack with 22" Bass Drum:

      This is the second drum set that I have owned and I am extremely happy with them! I owned my birch kit for 12-years, but I was looking for something with a little more low end at this time. In general, the tone from maple drums seems a little to low and resonant for me. The Tama Starclassic Performer B/B drums really have the tone that I was looking for and I feel that it is a very successful hybrid. They have the characteristic of birch with a sharp attack, finish with a quick low end response which creates a full bodied tone. I typically do not like clear heads, but the included 2-ply Evans G2 heads complement the drums. The complementary tone of the bubinga provides the warmness I was looking for without having to use coated heads at this time. However, I may experiment with them in the future, but right now I really love the tone of the drums and they are much more enjoyable to play. The hardware is easy to adjust, fine tune, with more options to get the position that is most comfortable for me. The die cast hoops are sturdy, look very well made, and are staying in tune. They were easy to dial into what I consider the "sweet spot". Finally, the finish is the "icing on the cake". I ordered the Molton Brown Burst finish and it really stands out. The finish is unique in that it has a free form design, is interesting to look at, and shiny. Overall, the drums are excellent quality and are really well made!
