Tama Superstar Classic 18″ 4pc Shell Pack, Satin Arctic Pearl
Powerful and Vibrant Shells
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 Light Emerald Blue Green lacquer to provide a sleek, bold appearance.
Full Potential Unleashed
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.
