Product Description

Thinner and livelier than ever, the Tama designers have dialed in the perfect combination of sensitivity and high-end cut. Featuring 100% maple shells, the Superstar Classic shell kit has superior build quality, sterling tone and clear projection.

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.

All Maple Shells
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.

Star-Mount System
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.

Low-Mass Lugs
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.

Tom Holder
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.

Claw Hook
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.

These Maple shell Tama drums are awesome. A lot of folks complain about the stock heads but I used some Moongels on them and love the sound.

Not bad for the money

Product Review

I just got these and I would have to say not bad for the money. My biggest drawl backs are, The heads are not vey good at all, "CHEAP". so when buying this kit I would recommend better top, and bottom heads. The hoops are also very "CHEAP" as well. I am replacing mine with Gibraltar 2.3 mm. But these are things to be expected on a kit of this price. But over all I really like this kit. "BEAUTIFUL" finish!! The hardware is very "NICE" as well. Floor tom legs, tom holders...etc. I gave this kit a 4 star ratting because of the heads, and hoops. Tama could definitely stand to step up on those things.
