    Get The Distinct Sound Of Tama's Blended Shell Technology With The Tama PS42SSIB Starclassic Performer B/B 4Pc Shell Kit* 

    For more than 30 years, the distinctive, traditional sound of birch has made it the go-to choice for numerous pro drummers. Now, TAMA takes birch in an entirely new direction. Proportionately melding inner plies of bubinga with the classic birch exterior, TAMA has created a blended shell that combines the focused attack of birch, with the enhanced low-end of bubinga—delivering totally a new sound—both dynamic and versatile.

    By using bubinga wood for the inner layer of the birch shell, TAMA has created a new chapter in the Starclassic series.

    DIE-CAST HOOPS

    Hoops not only 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 our Starclassic Series, we 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.
