What We Think

For the better part of twenty years, the Tama Starclassic line has been a staple for musicians of all levels. The Star Reserve line adds to the growing family and brings a new sonic richness to the Tama legacy. This 8mm Japanese Cedar shell has incredible powerful and well-balanced sound with solid attack and rich, resonant lows. An upgrade in this line of drums is the Linear Drive Strainer and MLS50B Detachable Butt Plate. The snare side head can be removed without completely removing the snares wires and tension settings. Another great upgrade not previously seen are the Hold Tight Washers that will not come loose from vibration.


This is the newest addition to the STAR Reserve series, the Vol. 9 Solid Japanese Cedar snare drum. A light, soft, yet durable wood, the Cedar is steam bent to form a solid shell. This drum features TAMA’s original Customized Brass Mighty hoops and Starclassic bell brass snare wires. This combination enhances Cedar’s rich and mellow tone while delivering powerful attack and dynamic sensitivity.

About Manufacturer

For over forty years, Tama has been an industry leader in professional drums and drum hardware. Their concerted effort to create high-quality products has given enthusiasts and professionals a wide variety of product options. 

The Tama name is derived from the first name of founder Yositaro Hoshino’s wife, Tama Hoshino. "Hoshino" translates to "star field." That's the origin of the star theme that unifies the entire Tama product line — from their entry-level Imperialstar drums and popular Starclassic series to their top-of-the-line Star series drums.  

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. 

Whether you are after drums or hardware, Tama continues to be one of the best companies when it comes to getting the most for your money.
