The Tama Star Series has cultivated research from their acclaimed Starclassic series and stepped it up a notch through the implementation of new manufacturing techniques to further the tone of the kits. These redesigned components offer unprecedented tonal quality whilst complementing the kit's overall existing aesthetic.
Tama's innovative Star-Mount system maximises the drums' resonance, also providing support at four separate points on the batter side hoop of the drums.
Minimum Shell Contact
From the Star-Cast Mounting System to the single small lugs, every aspect of Starclassic was tailored to combine with Tama's ideal of the bare-minimum of shell contact. Instead of metal badges riveted to the shell, Starclassic uses a maple air-hole cap and a logo that is imprinted onto the shell before the final finish is applied. These features also contribute to Starclassic's rich, timeless appearance.
Walnut is renowned for its solid and stable properties. Its tone is distinctively warm and thick sounding. The Walnut tonewood also offers an equal amount of highs, mids, and lows lending to an overall balanced and comprehensively well rounded sound.
Quick-Lock Tom Brackets
Tama quick-lock tom brackets provide a fast and easy way to setup and breakdown your kit. Additionally, once the drum is positioned on legs or a tom stand there is no need to attach and adjust separate memory locks to save the setting. By simply sliding the switch on the bracket, it will separate into two parts, keeping the ''memory lock'' portion on the stand or leg, saving your positioning and making the next set up quick and easy.
Quick-Lock brackets also employ rubber lining for the purpose of reducing vibration transference to the tom stands or floor tom legs; further isolating the drums and enhancing resonance.
Tama's zinc Die-Cast Hoops are manufactured by injecting molten metal into molds, creating a dense hoop that's more consistent in shape than triple flanged hoops. This design provides the drums with a crisp attack, clear, resonating highs and powerful rim shots. Die-Cast hoops make tuning more consistent and easier to achieve because the tension bolts always contact the hoop properly.
The claw hooks stabilise the wooden bass drum hoops, keeping them in place no matter how hard you play. The claws feature built-in rubber lining which helps protect the wood and maintain tuning even during long performances. The rubber spaces also help protect the claw hooks and tension bolts form damage when the bass drum is placed on the ground.
Air Cushioned Floor Tom Legs
Starclassic's air pocket rubber feet are designed with a special air chamber that absorbs shock and helps eliminate the transfer of vibrations to the floor, creating an enhanced and comfortable playing experience.
The STAR drums feature a bearing edge shape that has a rounder peak than Tama's traditional bearing edge. The unique rounded peak provides more contact between the drumhead and shell, allowing vibration to travel from the drumhead to the shell more effectively.
With up to 40 years within the drum industry, Tama has developed a unique brand that prioritises both great tonal quality and outstanding aesthetics. With an eclectic list of artists on their roster, Tama has consistently delivered high quality percussion to a multitude of musicians over the years. This extensive list includes the likes of Animals as Leaders Drummer Matt Garstka, Anthrax's Charlie Benante, ZZ Top's Frank Beard and Kendrick Lamar's Rico Nichols. Tama drums accentuate each individual's specific nuanced style of playing and give the player unparalleled tone and versatility.
