When Tama released the original Superstars and Imperialstars that ruled the percussion scene in the 1980s, they laid the groundwork for a stellar reputation that carries on today in the Tama Starclassic series. Designed to offer drummers the same caliber of sound and playability that their ancestors provided, these drums are perfect for any player from beginners all the way to experts. And since they come in three different varieties, it's easy to choose the right materials and construction to achieve the exact tone you're looking for. Here you'll find a great selection of shell packs, as well as a few individual drums, so take a look for the option that perfectly fits your needs.
As you're looking through the Starclassic line, you'll notice that most of the shell packs and drums fall into the Starclassic Performer series, such as the Tama Starclassic Performer B/B 3-Piece Shell Pack with 22" Bass, or the Starclassic Performer B/B EFX Limited Edition 6-Piece Shell Pack. Designed to combine the focused attack of birch with bubinga's meaty low-end, they're versatile percussion with the chops to take on any musical genre or personal playing style.
Although they have lots of great options in the Performer series, Tama hasn't forgotten about bubinga purists, either - check out the Starclassic Bubinga sets, like the Starclassic Bubinga 5-Piece Shell Pack with 22" Bass Drum, if you want thicker-walled construction with aggressive attack, plus all the depth and dark tone you could ask for. Or, if you like your drums thinner, take a look at the Starclassic Maple 4-Piece Shell Pack and all its siblings in the maple lineup. These are the drums that set off the thin-shell revolution, and they could easily be the way to go for a drumming revolution of your own.
No matter which drums in the Tama Starclassic series are right for you, there's no doubt that they'll give you all the performance you're craving - and then some. That's the reputation Tama has spent over three decades building up, after all, and it's well-earned. From their many shell packs to individual drums like the Starclassic Performer B/B Limited Edition Hyper-Drive Tom, there's something here to appeal to any drummer... which means it's time to stop reading and start browsing!
