Starclassic Performer B/B snare drums combine the classic tone of thin birch for the outer layer of the shell with new, heavy-duty African bubinga for the inner shell. The use of the thicker, harder bubinga accentuates birch's distinct tone and projection. The combination of the two creates a more powerful, deeply rounded sound like no other!
These Bubinga shells have incredibly powerful and well-balanced sound with solid attack and rich, resonant lows.
The Tama PXS55 Starclassic Performer B/B 5.5" x 14" snare drum has an outer layer of thin birch and an inner shell of heavy-duty bubinga. The classic tone and projection of the birch is accentuated by the thicker, harder bubinga, for a powerful, deeply rounded sound. The eyecatching Vintage Marine Pearl finish and chrome hardware provide the looks to match the sound.
The PXS55 features the MCS70B butt, which uses the basic butt assembly of the MUS80B. Large 6mm screws provide improved durability.
