Bubinga and Birch Shells
The Starclassic Performer B/B shells are designed with a unique construction, using 3ply Bubinga for the inner layers and 4-5ply Birch over the top. These two types of wood work together to create a rich, dynamic tone, offering the focused attack of a Birch shell with the enhanced lows of a Bubinga shell. The Starclassic kit features Evans drumheads on the rack and floor toms. With Genera G2 2-ply clear batter heads and Genera G1 1-ply clear bottom heads, the drums ensure both durability and great sound. The Starclassic bass drums are fitted with Genera EQ4 clear batter heads. The Starclassic Performer shell pack also features Tama's classic Star-Cast mounting system, providing maximum resonance and stability, with a streamlined design allowing the toms to positioned closer together for greater ease and comfort. An aluminium construction makes the mounting system light in weight, providing a true tonal vibration.
Minimum Shell Contact
From the Star-Cast Mounting System to the single small lugs, every aspect of Starclassic was tailored to combine with Tama's ideal of the bare-minimum of shell contact. Instead of metal badges riveted to the shell, Starclassic utilises a maple air-hole cap and a logo that is imprinted onto the shell before the final finish is applied. These features also contribute to Starclassic's rich, timeless appearance.
Quick-Lock Tom Brackets
Tama quick-lock tom brackets provide a fast and easy way to setup and breakdown your kit. Additionally, once the drum is positioned on legs or a tom stand there is no need to attach and adjust separate memory locks to save the setting. By simply sliding the switch on the bracket, it will separate into two parts, keeping the 'memory lock' portion on the stand or leg, saving your positioning and making the next set up quick and easy. Quick-Lock brackets also employ rubber lining for the purpose of reducing vibration transference to the tom stands or floor tom legs; further isolating the drums and enhancing resonance. The floor tom legs also feature Tama's air pocket foot technology. Starclassic’s rubber feet are designed with a special air chamber that absorbs shock and helps eliminate the transfer of vibrations to the floor, creating an enhanced and comfortable playing experience.
Tama’s zinc Die-Cast Hoops are manufactured by injecting molten metal into moulds, creating a dense hoop that’s more consistent in shape than triple-flanged hoops. This design provides the drums with a crisp attack, clear, resonating highs and powerful rim shots. Die-Cast hoops make tuning more consistent and easier to achieve because the tension bolts always contact the hoop properly. The hoops are accompanied by high-quality claw hooks, which stabilise the wooden bass drum hoops, keeping them in place no matter how hard you play. The claws feature built-in rubber lining which helps protect the wood and maintain tuning even during long performances. The rubber spaces also help protect the claw hooks and tension bolts from damage when the bass drum is placed on the ground.
