In the ’80s TAMA’s Superstars and Imperialstars reigned supreme – the perfect drums for the times. But TAMA’s builders and designers wanted something that transcended trends, something timeless – drums that understood a player’s passion and allowed the expression of every genre, style, mood, and technique. They created Starclassic Maple drums…and ignited the thin-shell revolution. And now the new Exotic Finish line offers beautiful, one-of-a-kind exotic wood exteriors for that extra luxurious touch.
Numerous options are available to meet the varied and critical needs of professional drummers including a selection of more than 30 different shell sizes.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, this is a shell pack so it only comes with the Bass drum, toms and heads.

The only “hardware” this kit does with are the floor tom legs and tom attachments.

Can I play any style with this kit?
This drum kit sounds amazing and can be used for any style.  The big sound can seem like its gear towards arena rock, but that’s just not the case.  I’ve seen jazz/funk drummers make this kit sing!
Adam’s Take

I got turned on to this drum kit by the infamous Adam Deitch.  For those that don’t know Adam Deitch, he is the drummer for the funk band Lettuce and has toured with Average White Band, John Scofield, Chaka Kahn and a ton of other musicians.

The first time I saw Adam Deitch play the drums with Lettuce, the first thing I noticed was how the tone of his drumset drove the music so well.  Whether they were driving funky thick grooves or getting jazzy and out, the drums consistently stood out to me.

The Tama Star Bubinga drumset is a top tier set of drums, worthy of any stage.

These drums feature ultra dense Bubinga wood that makes for an incredible sounding drum set.
