3-piece Birch and Bubinga Shell Pack with 18" Bass Drum, 12" Mounted Toms, 14" Floor Tom, and Swivel-Wing Single Tom Holder - Black Lacebark Pine-
Cymbals and Stands sold separate.
The TAMA Starclassic Performer Exotix three-piece shell pack features the popular birch/bubinga shell construction. Tama recently introduced the Exotix and a limited edition Lacebark Pine Veneer in two finishes-Indigo and Black. The bubinga interiors provide great low end, plenty of punch, and a focused attack. Also new is this three-piece configuration which features an 18" bass drum. Each of the shells included in this kit features the famed hybrid birch and bubinga shells. The Lacebark Pine veneer brings a unique look to the Starclassic Performer line with bold and lucid grain patterns. TAMA also chose to include the Swivel-Wing mounting system with these sets which makes setup fast, consistent, and adds resonance to your toms. The Lacebark Pine is a limited edition and available in two stunning finishes. Get them while they are available.
The Star-Cast Mounting System has always provided maximum resonance and stability for Tama's pro-drums. Now it has a more streamlined designed, making it easier to position toms closer together. In addition, a switch to aluminum provides lighter weight and even truer tonal vibration. Star-Cast is also now plated to match your drum's shell hardware.
Hoops not only affect drum tuning, they also affect drum sound. That's why the choice of hoops was so important to the designers of Tama's professional drum lines. For the Starclassic Bubinga, Tama chose zinc die-cast hoops, which are manufactured by injecting molten metal into molds. Die-cast hoops have more density and are more consistent in shape than triple-flanged hoops, which are manufactured by bending metal plates. Die-cast hoops make tuning more consistent and easier to achieve because the tension bolts always contact the hoop properly. Drums fitted with die-cast hoops also offer crisper attack, clear and resonant highs and much more powerful rim shots.
Starclassic's claw hooks feature rubber spacers that help protect wood hoops from damage. The hooks and hoops work as one unit and won't separate or rattle, even on loose tunings.
Tama's MSB30 die-cast bracket holds the spur bracket securely, thanks to the same powerful hinge mechanism used on the MTB30 mounting bracket. Unique memory markers found on the folding spur bracket help simplify set up.
Starclassic's Air Pocket rubber feet feature a special air chamber, that eliminates the transfer of vibrations to the floor (which chokes sustain and sound) and absorbs shock for better playing.
The Hold Tight washer is a totally new and unique invention: a non-loosening washer. Its cup-shaped stainless steel washer contains a rubber ring so the tension rod pushes both the cup washer and the rubber ring. Normally, vibrations will eventually loosen the tension rod. But the softness of Hold Tight's rubber ring keeps it in contact with both the tension rod and the hoop at all times and maintains friction between them so that tension is always preserved.
Evans drum heads are featured on all Starclassic Bubinga drums (except bass drum front heads). On the rack and floor toms, Genera G2 2-ply clear batter heads and Genera G1 1-ply clear bottom heads provide both durability and solid sound. Starclassic bass drums are fitted with Genera EQ4 clear batter heads.
