The evolution of Starclassic from maple, birch, bubinga, birch/bubinga continues, and now - after intense analysis, rigorous research, development, and product testing - Tama has arrived at the latest Starclassic modern development, Starclassic Walnut/Birch. They discovered the perfect ratio of walnut to birch that produced a superior quality of low-to-mid frequency warmth that perfectly complemented the clear attack and higher frequency projection of birch. The sound is familiar, but distinctively different from Tama sounds of the past. The Starclassic series continues to be a representation of their collective drum-making passion, wisdom, and pursuit to offer refined and differentiated sounds. Starclassic Walnut/Birch defines Tama's commitment to evolve their drum sounds and inspire the contemporary drummer.

Walnut/Birch Shells
Tom toms and Floor Tom all made of 6mm, 4-ply birch+2 inner ply American Black walnut. Bass drum made of 8mm, 5-ply birch+2 inner ply American Black walnut. The hybrid shell exhibits the focused attack of birch paired with the firm and warm of Walnut. This sound is not only punchy, but sweet and mellow. When you beat the drums once, excellent tone is surround you. The Walnut/Birch hybrid shell will make your drum life state of the art.

Quick-Lock Tom Brackets (US.PAT.NO.9269337)
The "Quick-Lock" tom brackets equipped on the Star-Cast Mounting System and on Starclassic floor toms have some very distinctive, ground-breaking features. First and foremost, as their name suggests, these brackets allow for quick and easy setup and breakdown. But the real unique feature of these brackets is that once the drum is positioned on a tom stand or floor tom legs, there is no need to attach and adjust separate memory locks to save the setting. By simply sliding the switch on the tom bracket, the bracket separates into two parts. When the drum is removed for breakdown, the "memory lock" portion remains on the tom stand or floor tom leg. This saves your positioning and makes the next set up quick and easy. These Quick-Lock tom brackets have some hidden acoustic benefits as well. Following the same principle of reducing vibration transference from drums to the tom stands or floor tom legs, these tom brackets also employ rubber lining to further isolate the drums and enhance resonance.

Star-Cast Mounting System
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!
