New Starclassic "Walnut Birch" Kits

The Tama Starclassic series is one of the company's premier range of drums; ideal for intermediate and professional drummers. The new-for-2019 Walnut Birch kits feature a mix of American black walnut and European birch shells which lends them a well-balanced sound with huge projection.

Tama Starclassic Walnut/Birch 3pc Shell Pack, Lacquer Phantasm Oyster

This series features some stunning lacquered finishes, including the funky "Phantasm Oyster" pictured above!

"We discovered the perfect ratio of walnut to birch that produced a superior quality of low-to-mid frequency warmth that perfectly complemented the clear attack and higher frequency projection of birch. The sound is familiar, but distinctively different from Tama sounds of the past." Tama
