Here we have an absolutely stunning Tama Star Walnut outfit in the very classy Satin Black. This kit was purchased brand new only a few months ago. The 14" floor tom and 13" matching snare drum are both brand new and have just arrived from Tama's Japanese factory as these were both special ordered by the previous owner. The drums have barely been used, with only a few stick marks on the stock Remo coated Ambassador tom heads. 

Tama Star Walnut Series

The Tama Star Series has cultivated research from their acclaimed Starclassic series and stepped it up a notch through the implementation of new manufacturing techniques to further the tone of the kits. These redesigned components offer unprecedented tonal quality whilst complementing the kit's overall existing aesthetic.

Walnut Shells

Walnut is renowned for its solid and stable properties. Its tone is distinctively warm and thick sounding. The Walnut tonewood also offers an equal amount of highs, mids, and lows lending to an overall balanced and comprehensively well-rounded sound. Star Walnut shells also feature Tama's minimum shell contact technology which consists of an air-hole cap and a logo that is imprinted onto the shell before the final finish is applied. These holes replace the metal badges which were riveted to the shells on previous Tama kits.

Quick-Lock Tom Brackets

Tama quick-lock tom brackets provide a fast and easy way to setup and breakdown your kit. Additionally, once the drum is positioned on legs or a tom stand there is no need to attach and adjust separate memory locks to save the setting. By simply sliding the switch on the bracket, it will separate into two parts, keeping the 'memory lock' portion on the stand or leg, saving your positioning and making the next set up quick and easy. Quick-Lock brackets also employ rubber lining for the purpose of reducing vibration transference to the tom stands or floor tom legs; further isolating the drums and enhancing resonance.

Bearing Edges and Hoops

The Star drums feature a bearing edge shape that has a rounder peak than Tama's traditional bearing edge. The unique rounded peak provides more contact between the drumhead and shell, allowing vibration to travel from the drumhead to the shell more effectively. Star drums also interpret die-cast hoops which are manufactured by injecting molten metal into moulds, creating a dense hoop that's more consistent in shape than triple-flanged hoops. This design provides the drums with a crisp attack, clear, resonating highs and powerful rim shots. Die-Cast hoops make tuning more consistent and easier to achieve because the tension bolts always contact the hoop properly.

Claw Hooks

The Tama Star Walnut Shell Pack features durable claw hooks which stabilise the wooden bass drum hoops, keeping them in place no matter how hard you play. The claws feature built-in rubber lining which helps protect the wood and maintain tuning even during long performances. The rubber spaces also help protect the claw hooks and tension bolts from damage when the bass drum is placed on the ground.

Perfect Foundation Setup

The Tama Star Walnut Shell Pack offers a foundation setup that can be finished with the hardware and cymbals of your choice and expanded with add-on drums and holders if you choose. When paired with high-quality cymbals and hardware, the Tama Star Walnut Shell Pack offers a superb drumming experience for even the most advanced drumming styles and genres.
