For more than forty years, the Superstar name has stood for groundbreaking design, superior build quality, sterling tone, and clear projection.

Featuring Tama’s signature thin 100% Maple shells, the Superstar Classic is built with versatility, presence, and rich tone in mind. Supported by low-mass single lugs and the sustain-enhancing Star-Mount tom mounting system, these drums pack a warm, full-spectrum punch with a clean and clear finish. Triple-flange hoops on toms and snare drums add to the open sound, while all-maple bass drum hoops stabilize fat, full lows.

100% Maple Shells
Rack Tom, Floor Tom & Snare Drum : 6ply, 5mm
Bass Drum : 8ply, 7mm

Our 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 specifically to maximize the resonance of drums.  This 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 the user can easily avoid the eye-bolts 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.

  • 18" x 22" Bass Drum

    I love this kit. It sounds much better than my beginner kit I used to have. After changing the drum heads, the sound improved even more. This kit is super easy to set up - I love the large memory locks it has on the tom holder - very easy to get the toms in position, and they hold really strong. Another cool thing is the wing nuts on the tom bracket swivel, so I was able to easily adjust them even when the toms are close together. Tama just thinks of these type of things. For the $$, you can't beat this kit.
