Tama CL52KSP Superstar Classic Drum Shell Kit, 5-Piece

A classic kit is renewed! The Tama Superstar Classic combines over 40 years of Tama excellence into one historic drum kit with superior quality and tone.

For more than forty years, the Superstar name has stood for groundbreaking design, superior build quality, sterling tone, and clear projection. Superstar Classic once again upholds tradition by raising the bar for discerning drummers and remarkably does it at an extremely competitive price. Drawing on Superstar of the past, its classic TAMA T-shape badge and streamlined low-mass single lugs point to the simpler state of art of the 70's, while the ingenious Star-Mount system and new thinner gauge 100% maple shells eclipse anything in its class. Visually ravishing, the Gloss Lacebark Pine exterior ply posesses a complex wood grain pattern to give this kit an extraordinary visual appearance.

I've used Tama drums since the came to a music store I worked at in 1980. I purchased this kit instead of a Starclassic kit because I like maple shells better. I did play a Starclassic kit a few years back but this time around I went with the Superstar kit because the two lines and their features are so close I just couldn't see the extra money for the Starclassic kit. Great sounding kit. The maple shells sound so sweet. The bass drum and snare the two drums you're going to use the most are just perfect. The Toms can be tuned low or higher to your taste. The heads that come with the kit aren't the worst but I would advise you add some damping. I personally changed the heads to the type I like best. I never advise what heads to use that's too personal a matter but again the heads aren't the worst. The fit and finish are exquisite. The mounting on the toms are the same as the higher priced Starclassic series. Bottom line for a kit under $1000.00 I think it's the best sounding and best buy out there.
