The Tama Superstar SL Standard 5-Piece Shell Pack breaks through the price barrier and delivers the goods”all the sound and all the quality, features, looks and attitude you ever dreamed of.
How often have you imagined the drums you'd like to play? The sound. 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. But Superstar is more than just attitude. Tama Superstar drums provide 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.
Tama's highest priority feature when developing the Superstar series was sound. Superstar shells use birch for the main inner plies for strong projection and aggressive open sound. To enhance Superstar's great looks, basswood”with its excellent consistency and regular grain patterns”is used for the inner plies on all Superstar shells. Precisely cut bearing edges bring out the great response and powerful resonance of these superbly crafted shells. Bass drum shells are made from 7 plies of 7mm basswood; toms and snare drum are made from 6 plies of 6mm basswood.
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.
All 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.
Hardware and cymbals not included.
