This listing is for a Tama Starclassic 4pc BB Birch/Bubinga Drum Kit in Aqua Glitter that’s in exceptional condition.
This TAMA Starclassic Performer B/B 4-piece Shell Pack gives you the great sound and rock-solid reliability you expect from TAMA drums, and then some! Using a combination of birch (for brightness) and bubinga (for low frequency content), these drums give you a very versatile sound. The Starclassic Performer B/B 4-piece Shell Pack includes an 20”x22" bass drum, a hyperdrive 7"x12" tom, a 12”x14”, and 14"x16" floor tom for a powerful attack.
The distinct and traditional sound of birch has made it the choice of many pro drummers for last thirty years. But TAMA decided to take birch in an entirely different direction. By using bubinga wood for the inner layers of a birch shell, this mixture of birch and bubinga has created a new sound with a sweeter and deeper tone which exhibits the focused attack of birch, paired with the enhanced lows of bubinga.
Hoops are important to your sound, too
Hoops don't just affect drum tuning; they also affect drum sound. That's why the choice of hoops was so important to the designers of TAMA's professional drum lines. For the Starclassic Series, TAMA choose 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. Drums fitted with die-cast hoops also offer crisper attack, clear and resonant highs and much more powerful rim shots.
Starclassic Performer B/B's 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. TAMA's 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. Starclassic's Air Pocket rubber feet feature a special air chamber that eliminates the transfer of vibrations to the floor (which chokes sustain and sound) and absorbs shock for better playing. Evans heads are featured on all Starclassic drums (except bass drum front heads). On the rack and floor toms, Genera G2 2-ply clear batter heads and Genera G1 1-ply clear bottom heads provide both durability and solid sound. Starclassic bass drums are fitted with Genera EQ4 clear batter heads.
