The evolution of Starclassic from maple, birch, bubinga, birch/bubinga continues, and now - after intense analysis, rigorous research, development and product testing - we have arrived at the latest Starclassic modern development, Starclassic Walnut/Birch.
We 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 our collective drum-making passion, wisdom and pursuit to offer refined and differentiated sounds. Starclassic Walnut/Birch defines our commitment to evolve our drum sounds and inspire the contemporary drummer.
The sound is familiar, but also distinctive from TAMA sounds of the past. The acoustic characteristics of North American Walnut and European Birch emit a focused warm tone with clear attack that carves out a distinct space for itself in any band environment. Fans of previous Starclassic Performer kits will appreciate the familiar Die-Casts hoops, Star-Cast Mounting System, and Quick Lock Brackets on the toms and floor toms. These features ensure precise tuning, full sustain, extensive adjustability, as well as stability that is rock solid.
Walnut/Birch Hybrid Shell with Inside Clear Lacquer
The Hybrid shell employs the perfect ratio of walnut to birch. It produces a superior quality low- to-mid frequency warmth that seamlessly compliments the clear attack and higher frequency projection than birch. The resulting sound is punchy, present and extremely clear. Shell interiors are treated with clear lacquer to seal the shell and add an element of tonal presence.
