In the '80s, TAMA's Superstars and Imperialstars reigned supreme—the perfect drums for the times. But TAMA's builders and designers wanted something that transcended trends, something timeless—drums that understood a player's passion and allowed the expression of every genre, style, mood and technique. They created Starclassic Maple drums ... and ignited the thin-shell revolution.

Numerous options are available to meet the varied and critical needs of professional drummers, including a selection of more than 30 different shell sizes. The Starclassic Maple line features three shell hardware finishes to choose from: Black Nickel, Chrome and Smoked Black Nickel. This Starclassic Maple is the chrome hardware version and is simply an unprecedented combination of sight and sound.
