Now Stocking Ltd. Ed. Tama Star Bubinga 5pc Shell Pack
Another entry into the Tama Star Series, the Shell Pack takes inspiration from the revered Starclassic series and builds upon their previous successes. Adding a number of new manufacturing techniques to a definitive design , Tama successfully re imagine the Starclassic Series' legendary tone with a more modern twist. Featuring die-cast hoops, quick lock tom brackets and Tama's own unique Star-mount system , the shell pack brings next level hardware quality and tonal capabilities to the more experienced drummer.
Tama's revolutionary Star-Mount system give the drummer the ability to provide support at four seperate points upon the batter side hoop of the drums. The Star-Mount design has been so intricately designed and meticulously planned as to reduce the amount of shell contact between the exposed surfaces. To spare the shells metal badges being directly riveted in to the exterior , the Starclassic features a maple air-hole cap instead, subsequently reducing any unwanted friction.
The kits quick-lock tom brackets give the player the a convenient and fast way to set up and deconstruct their kit prior and after any performance. Exceptionally handy for those gigs which require a fast load in and stage set up, the tom brackets also feature a memory lock component which discount the necessity for the player to remember awkward and complex positioning. Also fitted with the Starclassic's renowned air pocket rubber feet, this particular shell pack completely nullifies the kits transmission of vibrations onto the floor, making for a completely unhindered and unique tone.
The shell packs unique finish is particularly enticing, creating an interesting visual spectacle that effectively accompanies the kit's unique tone and formidable auditory presence.
Bubinga, a wood that possesses rich resonance and deep robust tones is becoming more and more popular within the drumming community. This is partly thanks to its ability to adapt and operate within an extensive array of different musical stylings with ease. The shells relatively thin 4.5mm 5 ply walls provide for clear projection and sustain alongside a one of a kind, earthy and grounded tone. Being thinner also grants the shells with a more natural and clear projection, ideal for cutting through the mix in a live environment.
