Tama Superstar Hyper-Drive shells are manufactured from carefully selected maple with a focus on shell moulding and bearing edge shape. The 6-ply, 5mm shells (8-ply, 7mm bass drum) produce full, powerful character and rich resonance with striking visual flare from its classic cherry wine finish and stylish badge design. Featured on the Superstar drums are the Power Craft II drumheads, offering a stunning sound, no matter what your style of drumming is. The bass drum heads even integrate ring mufflers, removing the need to add extra internal muffling. The Hyper-Drive shell pack also features Tama's classic Star-Cast mounting system, providing maximum resonance and stability for your toms in a streamlined design that allows versatile tom positioning for greater ease and comfort.
Zinc Die-Hoops manufactured by injecting molten metal into moulds, have more density and are more consistent in shape than triple-flanged hoops, offering crisper attack, clear and resonant highs and much more powerful rim shots. Die-Cast hoops make tuning more consistent and easier to achieve because the tension bolts always contact the hoop properly. The hoops are accompanied by claw hooks which 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 from damage when the bass drum is placed on the ground.
The sound bridge high-tension lugs are specially designed for the Superstar kit, looking like traditional high tensions lugs but the body floats over the shell to minimise shell contact. This design allows the drumhead to resonate to its fullest, whilst providing all the normal benefits of a high-tension lug. The lugs offset the tension of the batter side and bottom side heads, reduces the stress on the shell, and provides greater protection to the drum shell during transport.
The Tama Superstar Hyper-Drive 5pc Shell Pack offers a foundation setup that can be finished with the hardware and cymbals of your choice and expanded with add-on drums and holders if you choose. When paired with high-quality cymbals and hardware, the Superstar Hyper-Drive Shell Pack offers a great learning experience for intermediate drummers, whilst offering the high-quality components and features which more advanced drummers require.
