TAMA's Starclassic Maple/Birch Lacquer drums take the basic design of their acclaimed Starclassic Maple series and put a cool twist on it. These drums feature the combination of a more mellow birch with the stiffness of maple. The results equal a supremely dynamic sound that features the characteristic warmth of birch shells enhanced by the hearty bite of maple plies. Beyond that, Starclassic Maple/Birch Lacquer drums come complete with all of the outstanding hardware that sets the Starclassic series apart. This includes TAMA's die-cast hoops and Star-Cast mounting system â€” plus, each shell comes outfitted with quality Evans heads.
Did you know that the hoops on your drum affect far more than your tuning stability? That's why TAMA created premium die-cast zinc hoops for their Starclassic Maple/Birch toms. Manufactured via a high-density injection molding process, rather than a conventionally stamped triple-flanged hoop method, these extremely consistent hoops provide uniform bolt contact and give your Starclassic shell pack a crisper attack with added high-end resonance.
TAMA drums are top sellers here at Sweetwater, with good reason. TAMA builds their drums with painstaking attention to detail, precision, and care in order to deliver the best drums possible. And countless touring drummers and session aces, as diverse as Anika Nilles and Metallica's Lars Ulrich, swear by them. Yet, in addition to crafting superb drums, TAMA is determined to innovate on the hardware front. Their Iron Cobra Coil bass drum pedals are among the world's most popular, and you'll find that cymbal stands, snare stands, and drum thrones from TAMA are just as heavy-duty and reliable.
