How often have you imagined the drums you'd like to play? The sound. The professional hardware. The finish gleaming in the spotlights. Then you wake up and see what you can really afford. Kind of an unwelcome reality check”unless you've seen and played a Tama Superstar Custom. Superstar Custom has all the killer looks and in-your-face attitude you expect from a pro rock set. Superstar provides all the power, projection, and durability you expect from a professional kit, but at a price that's much less than the traditional intermediate set. In sound, features, looks, and quality, Superstar breaks through the price barriers and delivers the goods”all the sound and all the attitude you ever dreamed of.
This shell pack contains a 22" x 18" kick drum; 8" x 7", 10" x 8", and 12" x 9" rack toms; 14" x 14" and 16" x 16" floor toms; and a 14" x 5-1/2" snare.
7-ply, 7mm bass drum shells and 6-ply, 6mm tom and snare drum shells.
Tama's highest priority feature when developing the Superstar series was sound. Superstar Custom shells use 100% birch shells for strong projection and an aggressive open sound. Precisely cut bearing edges bring out the great response and powerful resonance of these superbly crafted shells. The Superstar Custom SL shells have a lacquer finish.
Sound Bridge high-tension lugs
The Sound Bridge high-tension, low-mass lug was specifically designed for Superstar. Sound Bridge's unique structure looks much like a traditional high-tension lug, but the body of the lug "floats" over the shell to minimize shell contact so the drum can resonate to its fullest. However, Sound Bridge still offers all the benefits of the traditional high-tension lug: it offsets the tension of the batter side and bottom side heads, reduces the stress on the shell, and provides greater protection to the drum shell during transport.
In a first for this price range, Superstar is equipped with the same zinc die-cast hoops featured on Starclassic drums. Die-cast hoops not only make tuning easier and more consistent, they also provide crisp attack, clear and resonant highs, and much more powerful rim shots.
Power Craft drumheads
All of Superstar's Power Craft drumheads ensure a great sound practically right out of the box! Batter side heads are made of Dupont Mylar film for richer tone and greater durability. Ring mufflers on bass drumheads remove the need for extra internal muffling.
This is a shell pack only. Cymbals and hardware sold separately.
