Tama CL72S Superstar Classic Drum Shell Kit, 7-Piece

Tama's Superstar Classic kit continues an impressive legacy with its thinner-gauge 100% maple shells and resonance-promoting, four-point Star-Mount System.

Superstar performance with the classic tones of maple. Featuring 100% maple shells, the Superstar Classic shell kit has superior build quality, sterling tone and clear projection. Thinner and livelier than ever, the Tama designers have dialed in the perfect combination of sensitivity and high-end cut.

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 70s, while the ingenious Star-Mount system eclipses everything in its class -- all at a surprisingly affordable price.

All Maple Shells

Tama's highest priority in producing the Superstar series of drums was sound. The full, powerful character and rich resonance of the Superstar drums were achieved by utilizing carefully selected maple shells and focusing intently on shell molding and the bearing edge shape.

Star-Mount System

The Star-Mount System was developed to increase the resonance of drums. The mounting system provides support at four points on the batter side hoop of a drum.

The bracket eye-bolts slide to the left and right, so it's possible to prevent the eye-bolts from touching each other even when setting up two toms close to each other.

Low-Mass Lugs

These small lugs are designed as separate lugs for the Superstar Classic series. By reducing the surface area that the lugs occupy on the shell, a structure that does not hinder shell resonance is achieved.

Tom Holder

TAMA L-Rod and Omnisphere tom read more holder systems have received acclaim from drummers for over 25 years. These systems offer easy positioning, maximum flexibility, stability and greater sound than standard designs which penetrate the shell interior and can inhibit resonance.

Power Craft II Drumheads

All Superstar's "Power Craft II" drum heads ensure a great sound practically right out of the box! Ring mufflers on bass drum heads remove the need for extra internal muffling.

Claw Hook

These claw hooks stabilize the wood hoops on bass drums and feature built-in rubber lining which helps protect the wood and maintain tuning even during long performances.

Love Tama's quality and sound paired with zZounds incredibly fast shipping...you can't go wrong here. I will be adding to this set for a long time to come, I'd imagine. This set is definitely worth the money. I love that you get the 3 rack and 2 floor toms for more flexibility with your playing so it's a great set for whatever you play and with a few adjustments to the heads, can really be used for any style of playing. I just love the thing, not to mention the Transparent Black Burst color is, in my opinion, just about the best color I've seen in a while...I love it!!!
