Tama Superstar Classic Exotix 22” 7-Piece Drum Shell Pack - Gloss Lacebark Pine Fade
Tama’s awesome Superstar Classic gets an exotic makeover.
The Tama Superstar Classic Exotix 22” 7-Piece Drum Shell Pack provides you with a huge amount of bang for your buck. Tama Superstar Classic drums achieve great levels of power and resonance whilst remaining articulate and full of character.
The snare drum and each tom of this whopping 7-piece shell pack are constructed from 6-ply Maple - and the bass drum is constructed from 8-ply. Maple is renowned for its versatile and well-balanced properties that imbue drums with a full, rich sound and keen brightness. The shells are then subject to an exotic Gloss Lacebark Pine Fade veneer that gives them their sumptuous deep-grained beauty.
As fantastic as the Tama Superstar is, there's always room for improvement, and by looking to the past for its inspiration, the Superstar Classic is a great leap forward in design. Radical shell manufacturing processes, brilliantly designed hardware and Tama’s acclaimed mounting systems lift the Superstar Classic into a new league.
After an exacting selection process, each of the ply combinations is subject to an innovative shell moulding process that ensures they are the most structurally sound and round as can be. Toms are equipped with Tama’s brilliant Omnisphere Tom Holder system. This is a minimal-contact bass drum mounted system that provides great stability whilst allowing the drum to resonate freely. Many other bass-drum mounted systems inhibit the sound of the drums by ‘choking’ their resonance, but not so with the Omnisphere. Although mounted to the drums, they do not penetrate the shells, ensuring minimal choke. Strong and stable, the Omnisphere system offers a great amount of positioning flexibility without impeding the sound of the kit.
Another great feature is the new Tama Star-Mount System. This minimal-contact tom suspension mount has been designed to provide great stability for the drum while maximizing its resonance. It stabilises the drum at four different tension rods around the batter hoop, eliminating direct shell contact to maximise vibration. Looking to classic kits of the ‘70s, Tama has equipped this Superstar Classic with some stylish yet highly functional hardware. It features simple yet sophisticated low mass single lugs that limit surface contact with the shell. Matching wood bass drum hoops and classic TAMA T-badges is the icing on the cake.
