Tama 3pc Starclassic Performer B/B Drum Set - White Oyster  From Tama

The distinct and traditional sound of birch has made it the choice of many pro drummers for the last 30 years. But TAMA believes it's time to take birch in an entirely different direction. By using bubinga wood for the inner layers of a birch shell, TAMA has created a mixture that provides a new sound with a sweeter and deeper tone. This combination exhibits the focused attack of birch along with the enhanced lows of bubinga.

What We Think

The Tama Starclassic Performer uses a hybrid of Bubinga and Birch shells to make a drum sound unlike anything you have heard before. The Bubinga interiors have a rich and resonant tone that is accentuated with the thin ply construction. The rack-tom and the floor-tom shells are 7ply/6mm thick and the kick-drum is 8ply/7mm thick. Part of the Starclassic recipe is the die cast hoops which yield a crisper attack, clear and resonant highs and much more powerful rim shots. Tama has also upgraded and enhanced their new memory markers and Air Pocket rubber feet which have a special air chamber that eliminates the transfer of vibrations to the floor. All of this and more in an extremely attractive package and price.

 

Manufacturer's Description from Tama

Star-Cast Mounting System
The Star-Cast Mounting System on this Tama drum shell pack provides maximum resonance and stability for Tama's drums. A streamlined design makes it easier to position toms closer together for greater ease and comfort. Aluminum provides lighter weight and even truer tonal vibration.

Die-cast hoops
Hoops not only affect drum tuning, they also affect drum sound. For the Starclassic Series, 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.

Claw hooks
Tama Starclassic Performer'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.

Kick drum spur bracket
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 to simplify set up.

Air-cushioned floor tom legs
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 heads
Evans heads are featured on all Starclassic drums (except kick 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.

Throne, snare, hardware, and cymbals not included.
