Tama Starclassic Performer
For how long have you been using it? Almost 12 years ...

Did you try many other models before getting this one? not

What thing do you like most/least about it? Volume grave with his stamp or no less ...

What is your opinion about the value for the price?
Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? Hard to judge ... I had ais at an unbeatable price and drum I'm a novice, but I love this drumkit!

Tama Starclassic Performer
How long have you use it?

Since 2005. First Live, and in the studio.

What is so special that you like most and least?

At the time, I was able to benefit from the latest models of the former Starclassic series.
It has not been modified aesthetically as the new models (which I find
much less attractive.)
I do not think one can say only negative if it is the price (and again ...)
Moving to the positive: It's hard to not say that, but many drummers
Tama often displayed in the category of batteries "metallic", which is
completely false. All this of course depend on the type, the type of skin,
cymbals ... a single factor can not be assumed by default.

I play myself in a group of groove-rock (a mix funk, hip hop and alternative rock)
Tama and this is really well knew its place.
The aesthetics alone will play equally crucial when making a purchase at this level. Tama
proposes a model of a high quality addition, Tama offers a series of "EFX", for
more advanced drummers (the wood remains the same, but the colors are different, question
taste: p.)
Have you tried many other models before buying it?

No, I just hesitate with the Yamaha Oak Custom home, and on the way home my dealer
favorite musical, I found myself in front of each of these two models.
Neither one nor two, I start first on the Yamaha. The sound was very warm (strange
for a drumkit so heavy: s, well yes it is the oak still ...), but I reproached
the bass drum (depth 17 ") for being too quiet.
When I turn my head, I saw the Tama, and I also decided to try it.
Needless to say, the lack of aggressiveness shown by Yamaha, has quickly show
their credentials in the testing of Tama.

Here we enter a series of "Birch Custom". Birch traditionally shown
more power and slam as maple or oak, even at a strike
relatively low. Specification for timber: 6 mm, 6-ply for toms, and 7 mm, 7
ply for the bass drum. Note also that Tama makes available a wide range
Evans skins, to skin an Evans Genera, Genera Genera 2 and 4, it will already be
less to buy.
How would you rate the quality / price?

For this price level, it was bound to expect something prestigious.
Not to worry, you really pay for, both in the "mouth"
sound and playing comfort and a price ranging between 1600 and 1900 euros, not Tama
never give eyes to DW ...

With experience, you do again this choice?

Without any hesitation, and I can still boast a small jewelry that no longer exists as it is today.
Friends drummers, your wallets, blink bling ...

Tama Starclassic Performer
I use a TAMA Starclassic Performer White Silk (reflects white silk, like the Ludwig Black Oyster, but dégardé White) 22x18 14x11 12x9 and 10X8 snare that goes with it (which I never use). I have this drumkit since November 2005.Je think she is beautiful and the DURACOVER (Rodhoïde kind of the same density as wood and glued a layer of wood on the surface) is very well finished.
Gasoline is 100% birch.
I like the sound, but changing the skins several times (G1 G2, Remo Ambassador sand) I have not found the sound that I liked.
This drumkit should appeal to fans of his contol ... it's not my case!
I love maple warmer and richer in harmonics.
So I continued to play my MAPEX Mpro bought in Guadeloupe in 2001, and that comes from Canada, a pattern never seen in France, because it is different ... it looks like a Saturn, however the wood is the érable100%. It sounds a thousand times better than my Starclassic.
And it's not worth me that the Starclassic Maple sounds better because I have played one for 2 years ... it's not better! That's good, but not better!
However, my Starclassic provides wholesale rock and studio ... basta!
The price is right, if we compare with another brand.
However, I advise you to buy a YAMAHA RECORDING CUSTOM Used for toms and a maple bass drum ... YAMAHA MAPLE CUSTOM loved you ... you can play everything!
So I am looking to sell this drumkit!
The snares that are j'utilses LUDWIG Black Beauty (black anodized copper) and LM 400 chromed aluminum. MAPEX for my jazz sounds great brushes.
Besides, if you bought a new drumkit, have a look on the side of Saturn type MAPEX PRO (maple / walnut) is really a good rocker and more versatile.
Otherwise TAMA is the drumkit ... some legends such as Stewart Copeland, which is why I wanted to have one ... its not my doming. [/ Img]
If you like rock sounds worked well, go for a walk in www.drummerworld.com / videos / gavinharrisonfutile.html. I call it a drumkit ... a maple ... SONOR Designer course.
