The TAMA Drums STAR Drums flagship line takes the knowledge and research that TAMA has cultivated for their Starclassic series to the next level by reexamining every detail in order to enhance shell resonance.

Walnut has long been favored by furniture makers for both its beauty and durability. As a drum shell material, Walnut's naturally EQ'ed tone has been praised by the drum community for both the stage and the studio. The STAR Walnut shells project booming low end with enough cut to be heard through any mix.

NOTE: The snare drum, cymbals, and stands shown in the picture above are NOT INCLUDED with purchase of this shell pack.

TAMA Drums STAR Walnut Series Drums Specifications:

  • STAR Drum Walnut shells offer a distinctive warm, fat sound
  • STAR Drums feature a bearing edgeshape as shown in the diagram above. Its peak is rounder than TAMA's traditional bearing edge. This rounded peak provides more contact between the drumhead and shell, allowing vibration to travel from the drumhead to the shell more efficiently. Also, the peak position of the edge is 3.5mm from the shell's outer surface, which further improves contact between the drumhead and drum.
  • To maximize the natural resonance of drums, tom toms should be mounted with minimal stress and strain on the shells and hoops. STAR drums feature Super Resonant Mounting System.
    This mounting system has three contact points with the drum. Two are located on the batter hoop (A& B -see image above), and one is located onthe bottom hoop (C).These three points create the largest possible theoretical triangle on the drum. The two contact points on the batter hoop (A & B) support the weight of the drum vertically. The third contact point (C) supports the horizontal weight of the drum, once the angle is set. According to physics, the further this third point is located, the less support it requires when setting an angle. Therefore, by placing the third contact point as far as possible on the bottom hoop, using the support arm, we were able to dramatically reduce the stress and strain on the shell and hoop and increase natural resonance.
    If you tilt your drums beyond acertain angle, which should only apply to a small minority of drummers, this mounting system operates a little differently. If a drum is titled beyond a certain angle, the bottom hoop will no longer be incontact with, or supported by, the bottom contact point (C). In that case, a different contact point (D), located on the batter hoop, comes into play. Although the triangle formed by these three points is much smaller, it does not put more strain on the batter hoop because of the angle of the drum. So the drum's natural resonance is still preserved in this case.
    To maximize theresonance of drums, it's very important to prevent the vibration of the shells from transferring to the tom stands. Therefore, in addition to the engineering outlined above, Tama also utilizes rubber at each contact point between the shell and the mounting system, which helps to isolate the shells and greatly reduces the vibration transference.
  • The "Quick-Lock" tom brackets equipped on the Star-Cast Mounting System and on Starclassic floor toms have some very distinctive, ground-breaking features.
    First and foremost, as their name suggests, these brackets allow for quick and easy setup and breakdown. But the real unique feature of these brackets is that once the drum is positioned on a tom stand or floor tom legs, there is no need to attach and adjust separate memory locks to save the setting. By simply sliding the switch on the tom bracket, the bracket separates into two parts. When the drum is removed for breakdown, the "memory lock" portion remains on the tom stand or floor tom leg. This saves your positioning and makes the next set up quick and easy.
    These Quick-Lock tom brackets have some hidden acoustic benefits as well. Following the same principle of reducing vibration transference from drums to the tom stands or floor tom legs, these tom brackets also employ rubber lining to further isolate the drums and enhance resonance.
  • The bass drum spurs adopt the same concept as the floor tom legs. Since the bass drum spurs receive the horizontal impact from the pedal striking the bass drum, properly absorbing this impact is critical to the natural resonance of the bass drum shell and for a comfortable feel from the bass drum pedal. This is why Tama designed STAR bass drum spurs with soft, high-mass rubber feet.
    There is one more important consideration. Most bass drum spurs have metal spikes at the end to prevent slippage while playing.This is an important feature for many drummers, so to achieve the same impact absorption principle while using metal spikes, STAR bass drum spurs feature a unique 2-piece construction. The spike is separated from the rest of the spur by rubber, which absorbs the impact without transferring it to the spike itself, allowing the bass drum shell to vibrate and resonate more freely.
  • Minimum Shell Contact - Every piece of hardware that is attached to shells affects the resonance and sound of the drums. In developing the STAR drum line, every detail was carefully considered to maximize resonance and optimize sound.
    The lugs for STAR drums have a luxurious, sophisticated look, as well as an extremely low mass bridge construction for minimum shell contact. The bass drum claw hooks follow the same principle by "floating" on the surface of the bass drum hoops. STAR drums also feature an imprinted badge and small wooden air hole grommet which further reduce the weight of materials on the shell and improve resonance and sound.
  • Floor Tom Legs - In general, floor toms are positioned vertically and are struck with downward force. This means that the floor tom legs receive this downward impact directly. The tips of STAR floor tom legs feature a special, hollow, soft rubber construction which help absorb this impact in a way that emphasizes the drum's natural resonance and sustain.
    Playability is also one of the key elements Tama considered in crafting the high-end STAR drum line. This hollow, soft rubber construction on the floor tom legs also provide a very comfortable feel and response when striking the drum.
  • STAR drums feature die-cast zinc hoops, which are manufactured by injecting molten metal into molds. Die-cast hoops are denser and more consistent in shape than triple-flanged hoops, which are manufactured by bending metal plates.
    Sonically, die-cast hoopsprovide crisper attack, greater projection and a more focused and powerful tone. Die-cast hoops also make tuning easier and keep drums in tune longer because of their density and consistency in shape. These hoops combine with the rich, resonant STAR drum shells for a very well-balanced, full-bodied sound.
  • Hold Tight washers are designed to prevent the tension rods from loosening. They consist of a cup-shaped stainless steel washer which contains a rubber ring.
    Vibration caused from striking a drum creates space between tension rods and hoops, which can cause the tension rods to loosen over time. The rubber rings on Tama's Hold Tight washers help absorb the impact of vibration and keeps tension rods in constant contact with the hoops to prevent loosening.
