Tama’s original Starclassic series revolutionized the way we think about building drums, inspiring the thin-shelled Maple movement that still reins supreme today.

The company’s modern Starclassic Maple line continues to offer the same genre-defying, one-kit-fits-all appeal that helped make it one of the most popular professional-grade instruments in the world. Full tones characterized by heavy attack and rich presence that make these drums perfect for studio and stage work alike.

This classic configuration features a shallower bass drum of 16x22", conventional sized small-tom with a somewhat deeper floor tom.

This 4-Piece Starclassic Maple Shell Kit comes in the following configuration (Rack Tom, Additional Hardware and Cymbals not included):
  • 16"x22"Bass Drum
  • 7"x10"Tom Tom
  • 8"x12"Tom Tom
  • 16"x16"Floor Tom

All Maple Shell
TT/FT: 6ply 5mm, BD: 8ply 7mm

Because of its warm clear sound, Maple is the most popular shell material today. To achieve the transfer of vibration from the head to the shell, Tama uses a thiner ply that is cross laminated into a 6ply 5mm shell and 8ply 7mm for the bass drum.

Quick-Lock Tom Brackets
The Starclassic Maple line 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 Starclassic Maple drums ideal for players in search of a truly professional instrument.

Die-Cast Hoops:
Hoops are very important to both drum tuning and how the drum sounds. This is why Tama has chosen Die-Cast Hoops for their professional lines. These Zinc Die-Cast hoops give you are very consistent tuning while also giving you crisper attack, clear and resonant highs and powerful rim shots

Air Cushioned Floor Tom Legs:
Let your floor tom sing with the 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:
Last but not least, Starclassic drums feature Evans G2 2-ply clear batter heads.
