What We Think

Characterized by its brightness and sensitivity, Ash wood has a wide tonal range. Similar to a conga drum, 20 pieces of 10mm thick Ash wood staves are used to form this unique shell, delivering a quicker response and deeper tone than that of a ply or solid shell drum.
Using TAMA's Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snare Wires, we are able to acheive an extremely sensitive, bright, and crisp sound. These characteristics allow the player to freely express themselves.

Manufacturer's Description from Tama

With a similar manufacturing process as a conga drum, 20 pieces of 10mm thick Ash wood staves are used to form this unique shell, delivering a quicker response and deeper tone than that of a ply or solid shell drum.
Because of its relatively heavy weight, Ash produces a brightness like maple and crispness like birch, resulting in a beautiful sounding drum in a variety of tunings.

The 2.3mm Sound Arc Hoop is bent inward, providing a tight sound with mellow sustain. In combination with the solid and powerful sound of the stave Ash shell, the Sound Arc Hoop delivers an elegant and focused sound to the STAR Reserve series.

n order to provide a crisper and more sensitive sound, we redesigned our snappy snare using new materials and customizing the shape of the plate and the wire coil's winding pattern. As a result of these modifications, the Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snare fits closer to the snare side head, providing greater sensitivity and a brighter, crisper sound.

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.
