Groundbreaking design. Sterling tone. The Tama Superstar Classic 18" 4pc Shell Pack raises the bar while lowering the price. Perfect if you want exceptional value for money. Tama's new take at the Superstar features carefully selected maple shells, offering a rich, warm tonal character with brilliant mid and high frequencies. The shells are constructed with tone in mind, with intent focus on shell moulding and the bearing edge shape the drums produce an incredible ringing sustain and powerful projection. With the addition of Tama's Star-Mount System, both rack toms come to life instantly when struck. The low-mass lugs and classic Tama T-shape badge point to the simplicity of 70's state of art design. Combined with the modern innovation of today, the Tama Superstar Classic drum kit punches far above its market value.
Please Note: Cymbals and stands are not included.

The Tama Superstar Classic drum kit features 6-ply, 5mm shells on the rack toms, the floor tom and the snare, whilst the bass drum features a thicker 8-ply, 7mm shell for a fatter, heavier tone. The heavy, aggressive thud that the bass drum gives off perfectly contrasts the incredible singing warmth from the rest of the kit. Maple, when compared to other popular tonewoods used in drum constructed, is a soft wood with a less dense grain pattern. This allows for higher frequencies, increased warmth and incredibly powerful projection. Ensuring absolutely nothing impedes the shell tone, Low-Mass lugs are used to reduce the surface area occupied. Finished with a Transparent Black Burst lacquer to provide a sleek, bold appearance.
The Tama Superstar Classic Shell Pack features Tama's Star-Mount mounting system, designed to ensure your drums sing with exceptional resonance and clarity. This is achieved by providing support at four different points on the batter side hoop of a drum. The bracket bolts slide from left to right, making it far easier to position your rack toms closer together without them making contact. Accompanied by Tama's L-Rod and Omnisphere tom holder, which has received acclaim from drummers for over 25 years. The Omnisphere system provides easy positioning and maximum flexibility for your rack toms. With both, you can place your toms anywhere you want, without sacrificing any of that rich maple tone.
