This Drum Shell Kit Gives You Solid Performance!

The TAMA Starclassic Performer B/B 4-piece Shell Pack gives you the great sound and rock-solid reliability you expect from TAMA drums, and then some! Using a combination of birch (for brightness) and bubinga (for low frequency content), these drums give you a very versatile sound. The Starclassic Performer B/B 4-piece Shell Pack includes an 18" x 22" bass drum, an 8" x 10" tom, a 9" x 12" tom, a 14" x 16" floor tom, and a double tom holder. You'll also find top-notch hardware on the Starclassic Performer B/B 4-piece Shell Pack.

TAMA Starclassic Performer B/B 4-piece Shell Pack at a Glance:
  • Get a fantastic combination of brightness and warmth
  • Solid, stable mounting hardware that doesn't hinder resonance
  • Don't forget the details
  • Hoops are important to your sound, too
Get a fantastic combination of brightness and warmth

The distinct and traditional sound of birch has made it the choice of many pro drummers for last thirty years. But TAMA decided to take birch in an entirely different direction. By using bubinga wood for the inner layers of a birch shell, this mixture of birch and bubinga has created a new sound with a sweeter and deeper tone which exhibits the focused attack of birch paired with the enhanced lows of bubinga.

Solid, stable mounting hardware that doesn't hinder resonance

The Star-Cast mounting system has always provided maximum resonance and stability for TAMA's pro drums. A streamlined design makes it easier to position toms closer together for greater ease and comfort than ever before. In addition, a switch to aluminum provides lighter weight and even truer tonal vibration. Star-Cast is also plated to match your drum's shell hardware! This Starclassic Performer shell pack's tom-holder expands setting flexibility with a sliding connector unit that moves back and forth up to 2". Simply loosening one bolt allows you to adjust the proximity of the tom toms. Now any size drum can be exactly positioned with ease!

Hoops are important to your sound, too

Hoops don't just 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 the Starclassic Series, TAMA 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.

Don't forget the details

Starclassic Performer B/B's claw hooks feature rubber spacers that help protect wood hoops from damage. The hooks and hoops work as one unit and won't separate or rattle, even on loose tunings. TAMA's MSB30 die-cast bracket holds the spur bracket securely, thanks to the same powerful hinge mechanism used on the MTB30 mounting bracket. Unique memory markers found on the folding spur bracket help simplify set up. 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 are featured on all Starclassic drums (except bass drum front heads). On the rack and floor toms, Genera G2 2-ply clear batter heads and Genera G1 1-ply clear bottom heads provide both durability and solid sound. Starclassic bass drums are fitted with Genera EQ4 clear batter heads.

  • Birch/bubinga shell construction provide a sweet, deep, and warm sound
  • Star-Cast mounting system allows for free resonance and excellent projection
  • Double tom holder provides easy mounting for rack toms

The TAMA Starclassic Performer B/B 4-piece Shell Pack provides great sound and solid reliability!
