View Full Description
The Tama Starclassic Bubinga 22" combines the tone of a Bubinga shell with a distinctive aesthetic that is sure to set the drummer as the focal piece of any performance. With Bubinga shells the player can expect a much darker sound, with a rich full sustain that is able to project efficiently through the mix.
Tama's innovative Star-Mount system maximises the drums' resonance, also providing support at four separate points on the batter side hoop of the drums.
Minimum Shell Contact
From the Star-Cast Mounting System to the single small lugs, every aspect of Starclassic was tailored to Tama's ideal of the bare-minimum of shell contact. Instead of metal badges riveted to the shell, Starclassic uses a maple air-hole cap and a logo that is imprinted onto the shell before the final finish is applied. These features also contribute to Starclassic's rich, timeless appearance.
With an unconventional combination of depth and a biting attack, bubinga features a very aggressive attack coupled with an intense depth and sustain. Bubinga is a hard tropical timber with a straight interlocking grain. It is often picked for its distinguished aesthetic and typically bright response.
Quick-Lock Tom Brackets
Tama quick-lock tom brackets provide a fast and easy way to setup and breakdown your kit. Additionally, once the drum is positioned on legs or a tom stand there is no need to attach and adjust separate memory locks to save the setting. By simply sliding the switch on the bracket, it will separate into two parts, keeping the "memory lock" portion on the stand or leg, saving your positioning and making the next set up quick and easy.
Quick-Lock brackets also employ rubber lining for the purpose of reducing vibration transference to the tom stands or floor tom legs; further isolating the drums and enhancing resonance.
Tama's zinc Die-Cast Hoops are manufactured by injecting molten metal into molds, creating a dense hoop that?s more consistent in shape than triple flanged hoops. This design provides the drums with a crisp attack, clear, resonating highs and powerful rim shots. Die-Cast hoops make tuning more consistent and easier to achieve because the tension bolts always contact the hoop properly.
The claw hooks stabilise the wooden bass drum hoops, keeping them in place no matter how hard you play. The claws feature built-in rubber lining which helps protect the wood and maintain tuning, even during long performances. The rubber spaces also help protect the claw hooks and tension bolts form damage when the bass drum is placed on the ground.
Air Cushioned Floor Tom Legs
Starclassic's air pocket rubber feet are designed with a special air chamber that absorbs shock and helps eliminate the transfer of vibrations to the floor, creating an enhanced and comfortable playing experience.
