TAMA's signature thin 100% maple shells endow the Superstar Classic with bold, rich tones to awaken your grooves and power your backbeats. Low-mass, low-profile lugs reduce weight on the shells for enhanced resonance across the board. And TAMA's Star-Mount system gives you unbeatable openness from your high toms without stands. Music Experience knows TAMA enthusiasts will appreciate this Superstar Classic's matching maple bass drum hoops and classic TAMA T-badges.
Since the 1970s, the venerable TAMA Superstar has stood alone. This bastion of quality and affordability has been the session drummer's choice for all things pop, rock, and metal. Today's Superstar is even better in the Superstar Classic, raising the bar yet again for working drummers everywhere.
The Stage Master Hardware Pack from TAMA gives you all the essentials to upgrade your drum hardware and keep your kit in top working order: the Iron Cobra 200 hi-hat stand, Iron Cobra 200 bass drum pedal, a Stage Master tripod double-braced snare stand, and 2 boom cymbal stands. The boom stands include TAMA’s Quick-set Cymbal Mate for fast, flexible adjustment — an extra drummers here at Music Experience really appreciate.
For more than forty years, the Superstar name has stood for groundbreaking design, superior build quality, sterling tone, and clear projection. Superstar Classic once again upholds tradition by raising the bar for discerning drummers—and remarkably—does it at an extremely competitive price. Drawing on Superstar of the past, its classic TAMA T-shape badge and streamlined low-mass single lugs point to the simpler state of art of the 70's, while the ingenious Star-Mount system and new thinner gauge 100% maple shells eclipse anything in its class. Visually ravishing, the Gloss Lacebark Pine exterior ply possesses a complex wood grain pattern to give this kit an extraordinary visual appearance.
Our highest priority in producing the Superstar series of drums was sound. The full, powerful character and rich resonance of the Superstar drums were achieved by utilizing carefully selected maple shells and focusing intently on shell molding and the bearing edge shape.
All Superstar's "Power Craft II" drum heads (except Duo snare batter head) ensure a great sound practically right out of the box! Ring mufflers on bass drum heads remove the need for extra internal muffling.
These claw hooks stabilize the wood hoops on bass drums and feature built-in rubber lining which helps protect the wood and maintain tuning even during long performances.
TAMA L-Rod and Omnisphere tom holder systems have received acclaim from drummers for over 25 years. These systems offer easy positioning, maximum flexibility, stability and greater sound than standard designs which penetrate the shell interior and can inhibit resonance.
These small lugs are newly designed separate lugs for the Superstar Classic series. By reducing the surface area that the lugs occupy on the shell, a structure that does not hinder shell resonance is achieved.
The Star-Mount System was developed to increase the resonance of drums. This new mounting system provides support at four points on the batter side hoop of a drum. The bracket eye-bolts slide to the left and right, so it's possible to prevent the eye-bolts from touching each other even when setting up two toms close to each other.
Stellar performance from an affordable kit, with the TAMA Superstar Classic 5-piece Shell Pack!
