For decades, Birch drums were the preferred choice among studio drummers all over the world. But Tama, recognizing that blending the extra-hard tone wood's cracking attack and crystal clarity with the dark, rumbling of lows of Bubinga would create a fuller and fatter sound. The mastery of this combination is Starclassic Performer B/B. It?s no surprise that this series is played night after night by most of the drum maker?s artist roster. Offering unparalleled richness and range, it has become the first choice of drummers who want a kit unlike anything else on the market today.
The Starclassic Performer B/B line now includes Quick-Lock tom brackets and floor tom brackets. Originally developed for the company's flagship STAR series, they offer lightning fast, locked-in set-ups and completely eliminate metal-to-metal contact. Combined with precision-cut bearing edges, die-cast hoops, the Star-Cast mounting system, and other innovative appointments, these upgrades help make the new Starclassic drums ideal for players in search of a truly professional instrument.
Tama's shorter, wider Hyper-Drive shell-style has caught the attention of players in every genre. In terms of audience connection, the lower profile Hyper-Drive toms improve sight lines. And with a lower, flatter tom height, the player?s higher position over the drum greatly improves stick control. As well, the attack-heavy sonic character of Hyper-Drive delivers an extra helping of cut in thick mix situations.
