The Superstar Custom SL Hyper Drive 6-Piece Shell Packs are birch with basswood inner plies. This combination provides strong projection, aggressive, open sound, and great consistency. Precisely cut bearing edges and zinc die-cast hoops bring out the great response and powerful resonance. For perfect tone the kick are made with 7 - 7mm wood plies, while the toms and snare use 6 - 6mm plies.
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 Tama Superstar. Superstar 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.
No other drum embodies pro features at an affordable price like Superstar. 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.
Superstar rack toms are fitted with the same Star-Cast Mounting System as Starclassic drums. This unique system offers total tom isolation and unhindered shell resonance without the adverse effect on tuning or complicated head changes found in less advanced suspension designs.
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.
All Superstar "Power Craft" drum heads 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 drum heads remove the need for extra internal muffling.
Cymbals and hardware not included.
