What We Think

Tama's Starphonic series fuses years of building techniques that have been distilled down to create some of their finest sonic creations to date. For this drum, Tama uses Bubinga which features a thinner shell than their standard Starclassic Bubinga drums for a softer and warmer sound. The reduced shell thickness rounds out Bubinga's massive sound but still showcases rich tone and full resonance of the tonewood. The Grooved Hoop marries well with the Freedom Lug and Claw Hook to enhance the projection and warmth of Bubinga's low-end. A beautiful outer ply of Matte Natural Cordia wood perfectly matches this drum's noble sound

Manufacturer's Description from Tama

Tama's Starphonic Cordia snare drum produces a solid sound that features full projection with rich, resonant tone, combined with fine, crisp snare response. In order to achieve this new sound, Tama developed a concept that incorporates entirely different hoop, lug, and strainer designs, married to a variety of uniquely constructed drum shells.

A symphony of sound springs to life from this Tama snare drum, thanks to a combination of unique special features: naturally resonant shell materials, Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snare wires, and a special Grooved Hoop for a totally sharp but open sound.

Tama's innovations can be found in their entry-level sets all the way up to their professional Star series drums. The Starclassic line has been producing premium shell drums like maple, birch, andbubingawith exquisite finishes for over two decades. Their patented Starcast Mount and Star Mount have continued to improve tone and aesthetics without sacrificing quality.

Their high-performance hardware has been one of the most trusted names for quality and durability since 1977 when they bought a portion of the Camco company. Today, the Iron Cobra and Speed Cobra lines have multiple options for players with a variety of needs.
