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 tone”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.

Amazing kit from Tama, amazing service from GC Boston

Comments about Tama Starclassic Performer B/B 4-Piece Shell Pack:

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.
