Description

STAR is the new flagship line for Tama drums. It takes the knowledge and research we cultivated for the Starclassic series to the next level, by reexamining every detail to enhance shell resonance.nbspSTAR Maple shells Solid Core Ply is a totally new design for this series. This unique shell provides the warm, open tone of Maple, combined with the rich, hearty sound of a solid ply shell.

Shell
5mm, 5ply Maple (1 outer ply Sycamore for MGSM) w/ 5mm Sound Focus Ring.
Although they feature one of the most popular and traditional drum shell materials, STAR Maple drums have some very unique hidden features that set them apart from the rest. The ultrathin 5 ply, 5mm shells are comprised of a 2mm thick solid wood core ply, sandwiched between 1.5mm thick crosslaminated plies on both sides.
Traditional Maple shells generally sound bright and open. Our STAR Maple shells share those characteristics, but also add rich dynamics, body, and warmth, by utilizing a solid ply core. The concept is similar to other solid shell drums, but our unique shell construction allows the shells to be very thin by comparison. This groundbreaking design gives STAR Maples shells the bright, open tone one expects from Maple, as well as the rich sound character of solid shell drums, resulting in a truly oneofakind, outstanding combination.

Bearing Edge
Vibration produced by hitting a drum transfers to the shell through the contact point between the drumhead and the shell. Therefore, the shape of the bearing edges is one of the most important factors in a drums sound.
STAR drums feature a bearing edge shape as shown in the diagram. Its peak is rounder than Tamas traditional bearing edge. This rounded peak provides more contact between the drumhead and shell, allowing vibration to travel from the drumhead to the shell more efficiently. Also, the peak position of the edge is 3.5mm from the shells outer surface, which further improves contact between the drumhead and drum.

Inside Finish
In a very time consuming process, the bearing edges and insides of all STAR drum shells are meticulously hand finished with oil for a luxurious look. STAR Bubinga shells feature an oilfinished inner ply of Cordia, while STAR Maple drums feature oilfinished Maple interiors

DieCast Hoops
Hoops are a crucial element to a drums sound and ease of tuning. STAR drums feature diecast zinc hoops, which are manufactured by injecting molten metal into molds. Diecast hoops are denser and more consistent in shape than tripleflanged hoops, which are manufactured by bending metal plates.

Sonically, diecast hoops provide crisper attack, greater projection and a more focused and powerful tone. Diecast hoops also make tuning easier and keep drums in tune longer because of their density and consistency in shape. These hoops combine with the rich, resonant STAR drum shells for a very wellbalanced, fullbodied sound.

Hold Tight Washers
Hold Tight washers are designed to prevent the tension rods from loosening. They consist of a cupshaped stainless steel washer which contains a rubber ring.
Vibration caused from striking a drum creates space between tension rods and hoops, which can cause the tension rods to loosen over time. The rubber rings on our Hold Tight washers help absorb the impact of vibration and keeps tension rods in constant contact with the hoops to prevent loosening.

In absolutely excellent condition - barely used at all. Save Big!
