Re-imagining a New Sonic Inspiration - Walnut and Birch is here at Drum Center of Portsmouth!
Tama's Starclassic series has become highly acclaimed and reinforced Tama's reputation as an exceptional drum maker since its 1994 launch. This series has inspired a personal connection to a modernized sound derived from various drum shell materials throughout its history: Maple, birch, bubinga and birch/bubinga. Each shell material produced a tangible sonic difference, enabling drummers to select and personalize their own specific sound. For Tama, Starclassic has represented versatility, durability and continuous sonic evolution using different wood shell materials.
The evolution of Starclassic continues, and now - after intense analysis, rigorous research, development and product testing – Tama has arrived at the latest Starclassic development, Starclassic Walnut/Birch. By analyzing the perfect ratio of walnut to birch, Tama was able to engineer a superior quality of low-to-mid frequency warmth that perfectly complements the clear attack and higher frequency projection of birch. The rich/clear, cutting sound is familiar, but distinctively different from Tama sounds of the past.
The Walnut/Birch shell for toms and floor toms is 6mm thick and constructed using 4-ply European Birch for the outer plies with 2-ply American Black Walnut interior plies. The bass drum shell specification is 8mm, 5-ply European Birch outer plies with 2-ply American Black Walnut interiors. The interior walnut shell ply includes a lacquer coating treatment, which adds an element of liveliness to the overall tone. Drum hardware includes die-cast hoops, Star-Cast Mounting System, and Quick-Lock brackets on the toms and floor toms. These features ensure precise tuning, crisp sonic attack, flexible adjustability, as well as overall rock-solid durability and stability.
The Starclassic series continues to represent Tama's extensive drum-making experience, wisdom and pursuit to offer refined and differentiated drum sounds. Starclassic Performer Walnut/Birch defines Tama's commitment to evolve their sounds and inspire the contemporary drummer.
