9.5/10 Condition. Slight lacquer ding on the bass drum (see images) everything else is brand spanking! Even the heads!
In the ’80s TAMA’s Superstars and Imperialstars reigned supreme – the perfect drums for the times. But TAMA’s builders and designers wanted something that transcended trends, something timeless – drums that understood a player’s passion and allowed the expression of every genre, style, mood, and technique. They created Starclassic Maple drums…and ignited the thin-shell revolution. And now the new Exotic Finish line offers beautiful, one-of-a-kind exotic wood exteriors for that extra luxurious touch.

For the optimum transfer of vibrations from head to shell, a thinner shell is better. However, less thickness often equals less strength. Instead of simply making thinner shells by using fewer plies, TAMA slims down each ply and then cross laminates them into a 6ply 5mm thick shell (8ply 7mm bass drum). This combination results in a thinner shell that’s actually stronger than others of greater thickness. Starclassic shells utilize maple, the most popular shell material today because of its warm clear sound.
