Drums: TAMA Starclassic Performer
Wood: 100% birch (birch)
Model: Sold from 2003 to 2005

I play for 5 years on this model, namely since 2005.

From 1998 to 2005, I played on a Tama Rockstar 1997 model.
I had the opportunity to play on entries range from Yamaha and Mapex but I do not remember the models.
The only thing I have learned is that my Rockstar sounded better, more punchy than the Yamaha and Mapex well but the skins were not quite granted.

The passage of a Rockstar has a Starclassic Performer and say how well ...
There are simply a world in between!

Tone and power are the hallmarks

Original skin: Evans
Tom Toms and Bass: Genera G2 strikes Genera G1 resonance
Snare: Coated Genera G1 hitting, Hazy 300 in resonance
Bass Drum: EQ4 hitting, Tama stamp

All this is quite subjective and depends on lots of parameters, including skins, sticks and drummer.

With the original skin, the sound is really good!
It is unnecessary to change them after buying the drumkit and that's a huge plus for the budget Hardware: 180-200 euros.

Generally
The sound is close to the mid / lower midrange while being polished.
Rather open with harmonics present giving interesting coloration in shades of play
Harmonics are easy to reduce the tuning and if that is not enough, the E-RING Evans (or equivalent plastic ring to put on the skin)
and Tama PK20 (or equivalent) for the bass drum are very efficient and does not kill too much sound quality or the potato.

A flattering item with this drumkit is its power crazy!
The birch is doing his job ;-)

The Toms and Toms Bass rack version for my part, are alive, it sings, good projection and is a feast for the ears!

The bass drum sound really huge and very powerful. This is the highlight of the kit.
But not easy to find its tuning from the start with the skin and Evans EQ4 snare Tama.

The snare, the only weak point but that does not demerit.

10 lugs instead of 8 as the pre-2003 models
The ghost notes are returned with an interesting volume with quality wooden birch.
She lives, reacted well to the nuances of the game, with a tone wood evolving rather nicely.

With a change of skin and a good job on the tuning, I managed to make me happy.

I started a CS Countrolled REMO Sound hits and a REMO Ambassador in timbre.
Tuning: taut skin typing and skin trimbre slightly less tense.
And there, it did have anything ... but it remains below the snare separately purchased kit.
Fortunately for them, bad for us but it is a good snare drum.

Finish
Mine is Dark Cherry Fade (red shading the life of a cherry)
It is simply beautiful with the wood grain underneath.

Value for money

Euro 1749 without accessories in 2005.
So yes, this may seem expensive but the quality and benefits of a professional drumkit.

Note that before, it was the first step in the Premium Tama Starclassic Maple and before replacing the range Artstar.

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
Without any hesitation, except for one model better but still more expensive ...
