TAMAâ€™s Starclassics once ruled the drumming world. Today, TAMA is transforming these former hard rock staples into a timeless paradigm: the Starclassic Maple shell pack. This kit blends strong, soulful maple shells â€” finished to perfection by TAMAâ€™s shell experts â€” with the best of TAMAâ€™s 40 years of hardware advancements. Whatever style of music you play, youâ€™re sure to enjoy the modern cut and timeless warmth that pour out of these shells. A full set of Evans heads adds extra value to the TAMA Starclassic Maple shell pack, promising great tone from the very first time you tune up.
Thin drums tend to offer the highest energy transfer from head to shell. But special care must to 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.
