This is a shop display Tama Star Series Bubinga three piece drum set.
Dark Red Cordia
This kit was used here for a Tama clinic. There is a hoop guard on the batter bass hoop and the reso bass head has been ported. Heads have a few stick marks. Set is otherwise like-new.
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.
STAR Bubinga features a much thinner shell than Starclassic Bubinga. In addition, every shell comes equipped with 9mm thick Sound Focus Rings (SFR) for structural support. This shell configuration provides clear projection and resonance to highlight the distinct sound of Bubinga.
Drum Sizes (depth x dia): 14x22, 9x13, 16x16 floor tom with legs.
Both toms feature die-cast hoops.
Mounted tom features Tama's Starcast suspension mount.
13 and 16 have Tama's new Quick-Lock brackets for quick set-up and tear down.
Bass is virgin - no mount.
4.5mm, 4ply Bubinga + 1 outer & 1 inner ply Cordia w/ 9mm Sound Focus Rings
Bubinga wood, which TAMA introduced to the market, has become increasingly popular as a drum shell material. Because of their ultra-high density, Bubinga shells provide rich, fat low end as well as deep, dark tones.
STAR Bubinga shells are crafted to be much thinner than their Starclassic counterparts. All the shells are 4.5mm thick, including the bass drums and snare drums. These thinner shells allow the Bubinga material to vibrate more freely, which greatly enhances resonance. All STAR Bubinga shells feature 9mm thick Sound Focus Rings (SFR), which provide clear projection and sustain for a distinct sound, as well as reinforcement.
Every piece of hardware that is attached to shells affects the resonance and sound of the drums. In developing the STAR drum line, every detail was carefully considered to maximize resonance and optimize sound.
The newly designed lugs for STAR drums have a luxurious, sophisticated look, as well as an extremely low mass bridge construction for minimum shell contact. The bass drum claw hooks follow the same principle by "floating" on the surface of the bass drum hoops. STAR drums also feature an imprinted badge and small wooden air hole grommet which further reduce the weight of materials on the shell and improve resonance and sound.
-Each drum is hand made one at a time by Tama's most elite team of skilled and experienced craftsmen at Tama's factory in Seto, Japan.
-Dynamic Bearing Edge 45 degree cut with rounded apex 3.5mm from the outside edge increases head contact for a fuller sound with improved sensitivity.
-Bass drum claws are designed to lift the claw away from the hoop to minimize dampening.
-Floating bass drum spurs and floor tom legs.
-Bridge-style lug design minimizes shell contact, allowing the shell to resonate more fully.
-SMRS - Super Resonant Mounting System - for the rack tom completely isolates the tom from the stand.
