Tama Starclassic Bubinga ELITE Model

Tama Drum Set - Starclassic Bubinga ELITE Model

The Starclassic Bubinga ELITE series establishes a completely new standard for sonic and visual excellence. Exquisitely grained outer plies are carefully hand-selected to ensure extraordinary beauty and astonishing drum-to-drum consistency. Areas where different sections of wood and coverings meet have a seamless feel found in no other drums. The Bubinga ELITE series includes varied handcraft-intensive finishes including two featuring rare cordia, one featuring beautifully grained quilted bubinga, four new lacquer finishes, and three multi-sparkle covered finishes.

Drum Set Features:

Shells (Starclassic Bubinga ELITE)

Tama Drum Sets Feature

8ply bubinga + 1 outer ply maple or Cordia(*) or Quilted Bubinga (**) shell TT/FT:7mm BD:8mm
*Shell finishes:NCD or NGC
**Shell finishes:QMOB

African bubinga wood is approximately 53% harder than maple and birch. Acoustically speaking, bubinga provides very sharp and aggressive attack combined with unbelievably rich and fat lows. Our bubinga shells are slightly thicker than our maple drums which we have determined allows the drums to speak their fullest.

Minimum Shell Contact (Starclassic Bubinga ELITE/Bubinga)

Tama Drum Sets Feature

Our designers never stop looking for new ways to increase drum resonance. Nothing is too small to consider because many minutes improvements can add up to a signifcant difference in sound. Two good examples of this kind of exacting research are the replacement of the traditional metal badge with the new imprinted insignia and the small metal soundhole with one made of maple.

Shell Depths (Staclassic Bubinga ELITE/Bubinga)

Tama Drum Sets Feature

To achieve the sound and response you are looking for, Starclassic Bubinga offer a choice of six different depths ranging from the shallow Hyper-Drive to the cavernous X-tra Deep.
Also, the 20"x22" Ultra Deep bass drum size. This size provides thunderous low end combined with maximum resonance.

*Hyper-Drive sizes: 6"x8", 6.5"x10", 7"x12", 7.5"x13", 8"x14"

Star-Cast Mounting System (US.PAT.NO.5454288)

Tama Drum Sets Feature

The Star-Cast Mounting System has always provided maximum resonance and stability for TAMA's pro-drums. A streamlined design makes it easier to position toms closer together for greater ease and comfort than ever before. In addition, a switch to aluminum provides lighter weight and even truer tonal vibration. Last but not least, Star-Cast is now plated to match your drum's shell hardware!

Die-Cast Hoops

Tama Drum Sets Feature

Hoops not only affect drum tuning; they also affect drum sound. That's why the choice of hoops was so important to the designers of TAMA's professional drum lines. For our Starclassic Series, we choose zinc die-cast hoops, which are manufactured by injecting molten metal into molds. Die-cast hoops have more density and are more consistent in shape than triple flanged hoops, which are manufactured by bending metal plates. Die-cast hoops make tuning more consistent and easier to achieve because the tension bolts always contact the hoop properly. Drums fitted with die-cast hoops also offer crisper attack, clear and resonant highs and much more powerful rim shots.

Claw Hooks (Starclassic Bubinga ELITE/Bubinga)

Tama Drum Sets Feature

Starclassic Bubinga ELITE/Bubinga's claw hooks feature rubber spacers that help protect wood hoops from damage. The hooks and hoops work as one unit and won't separate or rattle, even on loose tunings.

Bass Drum Spur Bracket (Starclassic Bubinga ELITE/Bubinga)

Tama Drum Sets Feature

TAMA's MSB30 die-cast bracket holds the spur bracket securely, thanks to the same powerful hinge mechanism used on the MTB30 mounting bracket.Unique memory markers found on the folding spur bracket help simplify set up.

Air Cushioned Floor Tom Legs

Tama Drum Sets Feature

Starclassic's Air Pocket™ rubber feet feature a special air chamber, that eliminates the transfer of vibrations to the floor (which chokes sustain and sound) and absorbs shock for better playing.

Hold Tight™ Washers

Tama Drum Sets Feature

The Hold Tight washer is a totally unique invention: a non-loosening washer! Its cup-shaped stainless steel washer contains a rubber ring so the tension rod pushes both the cup washer and the rubber ring. Normally, vibrations will eventually loosen the tension rod. But the softness of Hold Tight's rubber ring keeps it in contact with both the tension rod and the hoop at all times and maintains friction between them, so that tension is always preserved.

Evans® Heads

Tama Drum Sets Feature

Evans® heads are featured on all Starclassic drums (except bass drum front heads). On the rack and floor toms, Genera G2 2-ply clear batter heads and Genera G1 1-ply clear bottom heads provide both durability and solid sound. Starclassic bass drums are fitted with Genera EQ4 clear batter heads.
