Tama Starclassic Maple

Bought the set(BD, 3 Rack Toms, 2 Floor Toms)new in Canada. Took just over 4 months for the custom ordered sizes, and color, Crimson Fade, with brushed nickel hardeware, to arrive.


As to be expected. Top quality, rich warm sound, with a good high end attack due to the cast rims. Starcast mounts do a very good job isolating the shell from the stand hardware. The drums sound awesome, and they are beautiful to look at.


So far, nothing with the drums themselves, although the packaging was poor. They each came in a plastic bag in a box. Not really any other type of cushioning. One tom had been dropped, or hit, and the cast rim was severely bent, requiring a new one... not in stock in...…

So far, nothing with the drums themselves, although the packaging was poor. They each came in a plastic bag in a box. Not really any other type of cushioning. One tom had been dropped, or hit, and the cast rim was severely bent, requiring a new one... not in stock in North America, so another 3 months for that.

They are well made, have perfect bearing edges, and finish is impeccable. The laquer job is equal to the best you will find anywhere.

Expensive as hell, and had to wait forever(plus now having to wait for a rim), but they are top of the line drums, and you get what you pay for. Highly recommended.

Purchased second hand from friend, but probably available from Newcastle Drum Centre (www.newcastledrum.co.uk - highly recommended)
Editors Note: (in white with black crome rods)

Fantastic 9 piece drum kit. Same model, colour, tension rods etc as Lars Ulrich (of Metallica) used to use. Fantastic booming sound.

NOTHING!!!

Quality is fantastic...it's Tama Starclassic!

Buy it buy it buy it!

Big sound!

I have a Tama Starclassic including GC 24, and 4 toms, 12, 13, 15, 16.

How long have you use it?

I use this drumkit soon for 5 years, every week, in concert, in the studio, rehearsing.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

I had several batteries before, such as custom yamaha advantage and a Mapex Saturn series.

What is the particular feature you like best and least?

I really liked the sound of the drums, very serious, very deep, with good attack and sustain a fairly resonable. I use skins Remo Emperor clear top, which gives a fairly modern sound, very fat and very powerful.

She has brought joy to my sound engineer who knows very well and the music for...…

She has brought joy to my sound engineer who knows very well and the music for the concert or recording 5 min chrono, because the sound is very pure and do not be unsightly resonances.

What I like least on my model, it is the bass suspended toms which certainly offer better sound toms up less stifled, but are fairly restrictive to install (it must be attached to a rack or a cymbal stand strong because they each weigh a dead donkey ...)

It still remains a fairly minor point if MEAN sound monster!

The value for money is good enough in 2014, can we find them less than € 2,500 for a high-end drumkit of this quality, it is very interesting.
If it again I would not hesitate

I played for a month ....
I played on the Mapex, the dw, Pearl, of, gretsch before ... But never as high in range, and in fact, never maple ....

The most? Even with rotten skins (Little resonance GC original toms were mounted remo oil bath, I turned it all to replace the emperor and eq3) but even with of yucky skins, sounds.

Zicos socks that I occasionally still do not come back:'' finally, you could do a rollover'' has whispers me this impudent guitarist the other day ...

And what his pitain ..... For rock, blues or in my opinion whatever it else it sounds. It plans, it is warm and velvety, powerful I finally know me try and find what the appropriate term!

Not to mention the hardware tama, what really is better in my opinion: Perchettes, clamps, rings memories, pulling shells .... starcast system ... Everything is in great condition, chrome did not budge despite the age, it's simply great :-)

I could not have new offer me, and yet the price is fully justified in my opinion ... But then an opportunity at this price point that mean? That play on toms that sound, which sends a gc and cc as harmonic balance that is just splayfooted!

Q / P ratio at the top, I do it again this choice without a shadow of a hair later hesitation.
