What We Think

The Tama Starclassic Walnut/ Birch brings the strength of birch and the sonic richness of walnut into one hybrid package. This hybrid tone creates a new sound for all players to enjoy without breaking the bank. The Starclassics are outfitted with die-cast hoops, your tuning will be more consistent, your snare will have crisper attack, and powerful rim shots. The timeless Vintage Marine finish and chrome hardware provide the looks to match the sound at a tremendous value.

Manufacturer's Description from Tama

The evolution of Starclassic from maple, birch, bubinga, birch/bubinga continues, and now - after intense analysis, rigorous research, development and product testing - we have arrived at the latest Starclassic modern development, Starclassic Walnut/Birch.

We discovered the perfect ratio of walnut to birch that produced a superior quality of low-to-mid frequency warmth that perfectly complemented the clear attack and higher frequency projection of birch. The sound is familiar, but distinctively different from Tama sounds of the past.

The Starclassic series continues to be a representation of our collective drum-making passion, wisdom and pursuit to offer refined and differentiated sounds. Starclassic Walnut/Birch defines our commitment to evolve our drum sounds and inspire the contemporary drummer.
