For years, TAMAâ€™s Starclassic kits were once the go-to kits for rock drummers. Now, TAMA has transformed these hard rock heroes into a contemporary classic. Blending 40 years of hardware advancements with world-class craftsmanship, these maple shells create a powerful tone with a soulful texture. No matter what style of music you play, you'll enjoy the warm, modern tone that effortlessly cuts through the mix. Complete with die-cast hoops and a full set of Evans heads, the TAMA Starclassic Maple Shell pack presents a great value you simply can't pass up. From the first time you get behind the kit, these shells are sure to impress you with their tone and responsiveness.
Thin drums tend to offer the highest energy transfer from head to shell. But special care must be taken to ensure such drums remain structurally sound. TAMAâ€™s answer is the Starclassic Mapleâ€™s thin cross-laminated shells. At six and eight plies each, these shells are still only 5mm and 7mm thick; as a result, they're capable of incredible power, cut, and resonance. The cross lamination adds strength that is far greater than found in thicker shells of lesser quality. From the lightest studio touch to the heaviest tour abuse, the Starclassic Maple promises great tone and performance for all styles and applications.
The hoops on your drums affect far more than tuning stability. Thatâ€™s why your TAMA Starclassic Maple toms include premium die-cast zinc hoops. Manufactured using a high-density injection molding process rather than a conventionally stamped triple-flanged method, these hoops provide uniform bolt contact and give your toms a crisper attack with added high-end resonance.
