Since the line's debut in 1976, four years after TAMA's founding, TAMA Superstar drums have been recognized for their groundbreaking design, superb tone and projection, and all-around excellent build quality. The Superstar Classic series offers up a performance-forward, flexible maple design that also delivers outstanding value. The Superstar Classic CL72SBAB 7-piece shell pack brings you that quality and value in an incredibly gorgeous package you'll be proud to play.

Tama Superstar Classic 7-piece Shell Pack Shell Detail

Shells With a Clear Voice

As mentioned above, TAMA Superstar shells have always been valued for their tone and build quality. The shells for the Superstar Classic CL72SBAB are 100% maple, with the 8, 10 and 12" rack toms, 14 and 16" floor toms, and 14" snare made from six 5 mm plies and the 22" kick drum from eight 7 mm plies. The shells deliver warm, balanced, clear tones from the combination of maple, precision 45° bearing edges and rich overtones from the triple-flanged hoops.

Perfectly Matched Heads

The choice of drum heads is always critical. The Superstar Classic CL72SBAB is fitted with TAMA Power Craft II heads for both batter and resonant heads on all drums, with muffle rings on the kick heads. These quality heads help enable the drums to exhibit a wide tuning range and tonal variety, regardless of your playing style or preferred genre.

Hardware That Helps Maintain Tone

Aside from boasting classic TAMA T-shape badges, the Superstar Classic CL72SBAB features low-mass lugs that don't inhibit the natural shell resonance. The kick drum-mounted Omnisphere tom holder uses TAMA's ingenious Star-Mount suspension system with swiveling eyebolts, which give easy access to the full range of tom adjustments. This suspension system also further enables the drums to ring freely. Other hardware touches include notched bass drum spurs, for easy leveling and padded claw hooks on the bass drum, to protect the matching wood hoops.
