The Starclassic Performer Birch/Bubinga EFX Series Shell Pack features birch-bubinga shells with a sweet and fat sound that has serious punch. These drums use the Star-Cast Mounting System and tom holder for maximum resonance and placement ease and stability. At every level, these meticulously crafted drums have been designed to allow you to express who you are.
By using bubinga wood for the inner layer of the birch shell, Tama has created another chapter in the Starclassic series. The hybrid tone exhibits the punchy attack and controlled overtones of birch paired with the enhanced lows of bubinga.
The Star-Cast Mounting System has always provided maximum resonance and stability for Tama's pro drums. Now they've improved it. A new streamlined design makes it easier to position toms closer together for greater ease and comfort than ever before. In addition, a switch to aluminum provides lighter weight and even truer tonal vibration. The Star-Cast Mounting System is now plated to match your drum's shell hardware!
Performer's completely redesigned tom-holder expands setting flexibility with a sliding connector unit that moves back and forth up to 50mm (2 inches). Simply unloosening one bolt allows you to adjust the proximity of the tom toms. Now any sized drum can be exactly positioned with ease!
Hoops not only affect drum tuning, they also affect drum sound. That's why the choice of hoops was so important to the designers of Tama's professional drum lines. For Tama's Starclassic Performer birch/bubinga EFX, 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.
Starclassic's new 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.
Tama's MSB30 die-cast bass drum 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 simplify set up.
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 drumheads are featured on all Starclassic Performer birch/bubinga EFX drums (except bass 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.
Cymbals and hardware not included.
