The 8 plys of maple create a strong but flexible shell that can resonate freely and capture every dynamic of your playing.

Drum Shells

For the best transfer of vibrations from head to shell, a thinner shell is best. Less thickness commonly equals less strength. Tama slims down each ply and then cross-laminates them into a 6-ply 5mm-thick shell (7-ply 7mm bass drum). This results in a slimmer shell that's much stronger than others thicker shells. Tama Starclassic drum shells use maple, the most popular shell material today because of its warm clear sound.

Star-Cast Mounting System

The Star-Cast Mounting System has always offered top resonance and stability for TAMA's pro-drums, but now TAMA has improved it further. A new streamlined design makes it easier to position toms closer together for greater ease and comfort than ever before. In addition, a switch to aluminum offers lighter weight and even truer tonal vibration. Last, but not least, Star-Cast is now plated to match your drum's shell hardware!

Minimum Shell Contact

From the Star-Cast Mounting System to the single small lugs, every aspect of Starclassic was taylored to combine with Tama's ideal of the bare-minimum of shell contact. Instead of metal badges riveted to the shell, Starclassic utilizes a maple airhole 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.

Die-Cast Hoops

Hoops not only affect drum tuning but also affect drum sound, which is why the choice of hoops was so important to the designers of Tama's professional drum lines. The Tama Starclassic Maple has zinc die-cast hoops, which are manufactured by injecting molten metal into molds. Die-cast hoops have more density and are more consistent in shape than triple-flanged hoops, which are manufactured by bending metal plates. Die-cast hoops make tuning more consistent and easier to achieve because the tension bolts always contact the hoop properly. Drums fitted with die-cast hoops also offer crisper attack, clear and resonant highs, and much more powerful rim shots.
