The focused attack of birch paired with the enhanced lows of bubinga.

This Tama Starclassic Performer Bubinga/Birch 4-Piece Shell Pack includes a 22" x 18" kick drum, 10" x 8" and 12" x 9" rack toms, and a 16" x 14" floor tom.

The distinct and traditional sound of birch has made it the choice of many professional drummers for 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 on Starclassic Performer drums, Tama has created a new sound with a sweeter and deeper toneā€”the focused attack of birch paired with the enhanced lows of bubinga. The kick drum has an 8mm shell with five plies of birch and three inner-plies of bubinga. The rack and floor toms have 6mm shells with four plies of birch and three inner-plies of bubinga.

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.

Sliding tom holder
The Tama Starclassic Performer's tom-holder expands setting flexibility with a sliding connector unit that moves back and forth up to 2". Simply loosening one bolt allows you to adjust the proximity of the toms.

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.

  • Cuts Through the Mix

    As reviewed by JARED JOHNSON on 4/30/2013

    Just tuned my kit with the tune-bot. It sounds very nice. The two rack toms have great pitch and tone with evans G2 coated batters and evans g2 clear resonant (those were the factory batters that came with the kit but they actually work quite well as reso heads). The floor tom was a bit harder to tune and still needs some adjustment - this may be the only tom I attempt to muffle with anything more than a singular moon gel (maybe a muff-l-ring). The Bass drum also tuned up very nice with remo powerstrokes on batter and resonant - very punchy and deep tone with only a little strip of thin felt laid in the center of the drum for a little extra muffling to round the sound out. The bass drum mount is also well-made and sturdy - I like the fact that although the bass is not a true virgin, the mount is held on with only 4 fairly small screws. Obviously mounting the toms on stands instead of the mount is going to make the bass drum sound slightly better/louder/cleaner, but those in the market for a virgin bass drum should not rule this one out alltogether. I will be using this kit for live application only since I have access to a phenomenal Sonor kit for recording. Going from a Pearl Export kit to this kit made an obvious and immediate difference. No longer are the drums not loud enough in our practice space because the birch/bubinga cuts through the mix well and provides great definition in sticking/patterns. While I have a feeling this kit is probably not the most ideal for recording (since it favors attack over sustain), you could probably not ask for a better live kit for this price. I would recommend this kit to anyone looking for a semi-high-end kit for primarily live application.

  • Amazing kit from Tama, amazing service from GC Boston

    As reviewed by matthew rosenfeld on 7/24/2013

    I was thinking about getting this kit because I wanted a kit with a tom mounting system attached to the bass drum, and I saw my old friend John Roberts (drummer for Janet Jackson) plays this kit. First, most importantly for anyone interested in this kit in Red Mahogany, it sounds and looks gorgeous. The deep-tone lacquer lets the beautiful wood grain through just enough so under different lightings you get very different looks. I had to wait about 5 weeks to get it, as the finish was on back order. So far, after having it for a couple weeks, I love it. A big part of my enjoyment comes from the recommendations I got from GC drum rep Aaron, in the Boston store at Fenway, although Blaze originally recommended this kit to me. Aaron emphasized it, and also recommended trying the Evans EMAD kick head and Evans G2 heads on the toms. Paul at GC had told me I was going to want to replace all the heads that came with the kit, and it's true, it comes with heads I wouldn't normally use. But Aaron's emphasis on the EMAD convinced me to try Evans, as I have always used Remo heads. My goodness, this kit just jumped up many levels from the switch, as I had put Remos on it originally when I got it home. Thank you so much, GC drum department! Also, the Starmount system is the best looking, most versatile tom mounting system I have ever used.
