The Tama Starclassic Performer B/B created a premium quality union of birch and bubinga shells.
The distinct and traditional sound of birch has made it the choice of many pro drummers for last thirty years. By using bubinga wood for the inner layers of a birch shell, this mixture of birch and bubinga has created a new sound with a sweeter and deeper tone which exhibits the focused attack of birch paired with the enhanced lows of bubinga.
Star Cast Mounting System
|Shells (Bubinga + Birch)
Tom Tom/Floor Tom are 4 ply birch +3 inner plies of Bubinga (6mm)
Bass Drum is 5 ply birch + 3 inner plies of Bubinga (8mm)
The Star-Cast Mounting System has always provided maximum resonance and stability for TAMA's pro-drums. A streamlined design makes it easier to position toms closer together for greater ease and comfort than ever before. In addition, a switch to aluminum provides lighter weight and even truer tonal vibration. Last but not least, Star-Cast is now plated to match your drum's shell hardware!
Sliding Tom Holder
Starclassic Performer's tom-holder expands setting flexibility with a sliding connector unit that moves back and forth up to 50mm (2 inches). Simply unloosening one bolt allows you to adjust the proximity of the tom toms. Now any sized drum can be exactly positioned with ease!
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
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.
Evans heads are featured on all Starclassic drums (except bass drum front heads). On the rack and floor toms, Genera G2 2-ply clear batter heads and Genera G1 1-ply clear bottom heads provide both durability and solid sound. Starclassic bass drums are fitted with Genera EQ4 clear batter heads.
