Featuring 100% maple shells, the Superstar Classic shell kit has superior build quality, sterling tone and clear projection. Thinner and livelier than ever, the Tama designers have dialed in the perfect combination of sensitivity and high-end cut.
Drawing on Superstar of the past, its classic Tama T-shape badge and streamlined low-mass single lugs point to the simpler state of art of the 70’s, while the ingenious Star-Mount system eclipses everything in its class—all at a surprisingly affordable price.
Superstar performance with the classic tones of maple.

Tama's highest priority in producing the Superstar series of drums was sound. The full, powerful character and rich resonance of the Superstar drums were achieved by utilizing carefully selected maple shells and focusing intently on shell molding and the bearing edge shape.
The Star-Mount System was developed to increase the resonance of drums. This new mounting system provides support at four points on the batter side hoop of a drum.
The bracket eye-bolts slide to the left and right, so it's possible to prevent the eye-bolts from touching each other even when setting up two toms close to each other.
These small lugs are newly designed separate lugs for the Superstar Classic series. By reducing the surface area that the lugs occupy on the shell, a structure that does not hinder shell resonance is achieved.
TAMA L-Rod and Omnisphere tom holder systems have received acclaim from drummers for over 25 years. These systems offer easy positioning, maximum flexibility, stability and greater sound than standard designs which penetrate the shell interior and can inhibit resonance.
Power Craft II Drumheads
All Superstar's "Power Craft II" drum heads ensure a great sound practically right out of the box! Ring mufflers on bass drum heads remove the need for extra internal muffling.
These claw hooks stabilize the wood hoops on bass drums and feature built-in rubber lining which helps protect the wood and maintain tuning even during long performances.
