This limited edition Starclassic Performer B/B set features a quilted Bubinga outer layer which gives it a classy, wood-grain look that is sure to make jaws drop. Quantities are limited so grab yours before it's too late.

The B/B performer has become one of the most popular drum sets on the market, and for good reason. The mixed blend of Bubinga and Birch plies gives these drums a more focused attack with plenty of depth and resonance.

Birch's warm, articulate sound has made it a top choice amongst pro drummers and audio engineers, but the folks at Tama believed that it was time to take birch in a completely different direction. Tama created Birch shells with inner plies of Bubinga to create an altogether new sound with a sweeter and deeper tone. This combination provides the focused attack of Birch along with the enhanced lows of Bubinga. Each drum is constructed using this formula:

Bass Drum: 3 inner plies of Bubinga / 5 outer plies of Birch
Toms: 3 inner plies of Bubinga / 4 outer plies of Birch

These drums feature black-nickel chrome hardware with Star-cast mounts, and Evans drumheads. Yet again this is a shell pack so the snare drum, hardware, and cymbals are not included. If you need any of these items you can find them in our "Things You'll Need" section. The sizes of these drums are…

  • 18x22" Bass Drum
  • 8x10" Tom
  • 9x12" Tom
  • 12x14" Floor Tom
  • 14x16" Floor Tom

The Star-Cast Mounting System has always provided maximum resonance and stability for Tama pro-level drums. We didn’t think it was possible but they’ve managed to improve it! The new streamlined design makes it easier to position your toms closer together for greater ease and comfort. 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 drums shell hardware!

Sliding Tom Holder
Performer’s completely redesigned 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!

Die-Cast Hoops
Hoops not only affect drum tuning, they also affect drum sound. That is why the choice of hoops was so important to Tama’s master drum builders. For the Starclassic Performer, they chose 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 and evenly all around the drum. Drums fitted with die-cast hoops also offer crisper attack, clear and resonant highs and much more powerful rim shots.

Claw hooks
Starclassic's new 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
The Tama 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 Pocket Rubber Feet
The Starclassic Air Pocket™ rubber feet on the floor tom legs feature a special air chamber, that eliminates the transfer of vibrations to the floor (which chokes sustain and sound) and absorbs shock for better floor tom feel.

The Tama Warranty
Five Years on Drum Shell / One Year on Drum Hardware and Drum Finishes / 30 Days on Bass Drum Hoops.

Again, this is a shell set. That means drums and drum mounts only. It does not come with a snare drum, hardware, pedals, or cymbals.  If you are interested in this drum set but also need any of these items, please see our list of “Things You Will Need” for some good recommendations or continue to browse Sam Ash Direct!
