The Starclassic Performer B/B drum set has a focused attack with enhanced lows. Tama uses the traditional sound of birch plus bubinga to bring the drummer an exciting drum kit. By using bubinga wood for the inner layers of a birch shell, Tama has created a mixture that provides a new sound with a sweeter and deeper tone. This combination of birch and bubinga has drummers excited to play the Starclassic Performer shell kit.

Hoops not only affect drum tuning; they also affect drum sound. That's why the choice of hoops was so important to the designers of Tama's professional drum lines. For our Starclassic Series, we choose 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.
Claw Hooks(Starclassic Performer B/B)
Starclassic Performer B/B's claw hooks feature rubber spacers that help protect wood hoops from damage. The hooks and hoops work as one unit and won't separate or rattle, even on loose tunings
Bass Drum Spur Bracket(Starclassic Performer B/B)
Tama's MSB30 die-cast bracket holds the spur bracket securely, thanks to the same powerful hinge mechanism used on the MTB30 mounting bracket.Unique memory markers found on the folding spur bracket help simplify set up.
Air Cushioned Floor Tom Legs
Starclassic's Air Pocket rubber feet feature a special air chamber, that eliminates the transfer of vibrations to the floor (which chokes sustain and sound) and absorbs shock for better playing
Starclassic Performer B/B drums feature Evans G1 1-ply clear batter heads.
