It's Tama's 40th anniversary and they're celebrating by reissuing some of the instruments that have helped make them "the most powerful name in drums".

For the past few decades, the Starclassic has been Tama's flagship line of drums. Though it has gone through numerous upgrades and composition changes over the years, one thing has remained constant. Their quality has always been top-notch. One of the most sought after snare drums of the 90's was the Tama G-Maple Starclassic. These drums featured a 13-ply, 11mm maple shell which was extremely warm and resonant with a deep, full bodied tone. These drums had an exotic outer veneer which gave them a look that rivaled their stellar sound. We are beyond excited to see that Tama has reissued some of these amazing drums. This snare features the same shell composition as the original G-Maple snare drums, as well as the same breath taking exotic veneer. This particular drum is finished in a "Midnight Storm Sapele".

As far as the hardware goes, Tama knocked this one out of the park as well. This drum features die-cast hoops which help keep the drum in tune longer while improving it's attack, and natural resonance. The low-mass Starclassic lugs give you that distinctive Tama look while allowing the shell to breathe freely, and resonate more naturally. The Linear Drive Strainer is Tama's state of the art throw-off. Not only does the Linear Drive Strainer allow you to dial in your snare tension with deadly accuracy, but it's incredibly durable as well. As if all of this wasn't enough, these limited edition drums come with a special hard shell case and a certificate of authenticity. Limited quantities are available so grab yours while you still can.
