Tama Limited Edition Starclassic Walnut/Birch 5-Piece 22" Lacquer Shell Pack-Neon Orange Oyster with Black Nickel Hardware
Tama's Starclassic series continues to be a representation of their collective drum-making passion, wisdom, and pursuit to offer refined and differentiated sounds. The Starclassic Walnut/Birch defines their commitment to evolve their drum sounds and inspire the contemporary drummer. The makers at Tama discovered the perfect ratio of walnut to birch that produced a superior quality of low-to-mid frequency warmth that perfectly complemented the clear attack and higher frequency projection of birch. The sound is familiar but distinctively different from Tama sounds of the past.

The shape of the edge is one of the most important factors which affect drum sound. Because the drumheads provide the important source of vibration, the shape of the contact point of the head and shell determines and defines the sound. This is why TAMA has worked so extensively on achieving the most functional shape for the drum head and edge.
The hybrid shell exhibits the focused attack of birch paired with the firm and warmth of Walnut. This sound is not only punchy but sweet and mellow. When you beat the drums once, an excellent tone is surrounded you. The Walnut/Birch hybrid shell will make your drum life state of the art.
Star-Cast Mounting System
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. Last but not least, Star-Cast is now plated to match your drum's shell hardware.
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. 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.
