For Tama, Starclassic has represented versatility, durability and continuous sonic evolution using different wood shell materials. The evolution of Starclassic continues, and now - after intense analysis, rigorous research, development and product testing – Tama has arrived at the latest Starclassic development, Starclassic Walnut/Birch. By analyzing the perfect ratio of walnut to birch, Tama was able to engineer a superior quality of low-to-mid frequency warmth that perfectly complements the clear attack and higher frequency projection of birch. The rich/clear, cutting sound is familiar, but distinctively different from Tama sounds of the past.
The Walnut/Birch shell for toms and floor toms is 6 mm thick and constructed using 4-ply European Birch for the outer plies with 2-ply American Black Walnut interior plies. The bass drum shell specification is 8 mm, 5-ply European Birch outer plies with 2-ply American Black Walnut interiors. The interior walnut shell ply includes a lacquer coating treatment, which adds an element of liveliness to the overall tone.
Drum hardware includes die-cast hoops, Star-Cast Mounting System, and Quick-Lock brackets on the toms and floor toms. These features ensure precise tuning, crisp sonic attack, flexible adjustability, as well as overall rock-solid durability and stability.
The Starclassic series continues to represent Tama’s extensive drum-making experience, wisdom and pursuit to offer refined and differentiated drum sounds. Starclassic Performer Walnut/Birch defines Tama’s commitment to evolve their sounds and inspire the contemporary drummer.
