Tama Starclassic Maple 3pc Shell Pack - Sky Blue Swirl with Black Nickel Hardware
Drummers in the rock genre once favored TAMA's Starclassic sets. These hard rock icons are now a modern standard thanks to TAMA. These wood bodies, combined with 40 years of mechanical improvements and top-tier workmanship, produce a robust sound with a warm, expressive quality. The pleasant, contemporary tone is great for any genre, cutting through the blend with ease. The TAMA Starclassic Maple Shell bundle is an unbeatable deal due to its complete collection of Evans heads and die-cast hoops. The sound and feel of these drums will immediately grab your attention the first time you sit in front of a drum set. Multiply maple veneers are thin but robust and tonally rich.
The transmission of energy from head to shell is typically best on thinner drums. However, extra precautions must be made to guarantee the structural integrity of such containers. Thin, cross-laminated casings are TAMA's solution, and they can be found on the Starclassic Maple. Although only 5mm and 7mm thick, these shells are capable of tremendous force, cut, and reverberation thanks to their six and eight plies respectively. When compared to larger casings of lower quality, the rigidity added by cross lamination is enormous. The Starclassic Maple guarantees excellent tone and performance in any setting, from the gentlest studio touch to the roughest tour misuse. Evans heads guarantee excellent tonal quality right off the bat.
Don't bother with a new set of skulls. The Evans heads that come with your TAMA Starclassic Maple shell set are brand new and never used. You get a clean EQ4 on kick for that powerful, rich, pre-EQed tone we musicians love, and clear G2s (batter) and G1s (reso) on the toms for a tried-and-true studio combination.
Premium die-cast zinc hoops provide consistent tuning and superior tone
The hoops on your drums affect far more than tuning stability. That’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.
Quick-lock tom bracket
Sure, the Starclassic Maple’s Quick-lock tom bracket saves you setup time. But what drummers at Sweetwater really love is the peace of mind it offers. There’s no memory lock to keep track of — just flip the switch to lock the mount in place in seconds. Then unlock to leave on the stand, or leave locked to the shell and store in your case. What’s more, the Quick-lock’s rubber lining further isolates the stand from the shell for better resonance and a purer tone.
