The Tama Starclassic Walnut/Birch 3-Piece Shell Pack in Satin Burgundy Fade offers a stunning blend of walnut warmth and boosted birch projection for a brilliantly well-balanced frequency response. Delivering the Tama sound we've come to know and love while offering a distinctly individual sound, this stylish shell pack offers full resonance, forward-thinking hardware and well-rounded tone.
Introduced as part of the line up at NAMM 2019, the Tama Starclassic Walnut Birch drum kit is the latest addition to the much loved Starclassic series.
The next in line after the maple, birch, bubinga and birch/bubinga models, the Starclassic walnut/birch kit fits perfectly into the series to deliver a new twist on the Starclassic sound.
Following intense analysis, rigorous research and development and extensive product testing, Tama have created the ideal ratio of walnut and birch to deliver a kit with superb low to mid frequency warmth and clear attacking top end.
For a kit with a distinctly unique twist on the familiar Tama tone, the Starclassic Walnut/Birch is a stunning option for the contemporary drummer.

Just one of a series of different finish and colour options available, this 3-piece Tama Starclassic shell pack features a stunning Satin Burgundy Fade finish.
Offering a beautiful look, the finish features a tapered appearance that graduates from a rich red at the top of the shell to a lighter wood grained aesthetic towards the bottom.
Accentuated perfectly by the compact Tama lugs and chrome shell hardware, this Burgundy Fade Starclassic delivers striking looks to match its stunning sound.
Utilising a range of extensive research and testing processes, Tama have achieved what they believe to be the perfect blend of walnut and birch.
Bringing different tonal strengths to the kit sound, both woods serve to offer a complementary character that works well with the other to deliver a full frequency response.
Characterised by equal amounts of high, mid and lows, Walnut offers a big, warm tone, while birch produces boosted highs, a slightly subdued mid-range and a punchy low-end response for an overall cutting sound.
The combination of the two therefore serves to produce a sound that has a brilliant spread across the whole frequency spectrum.
The even highs of walnut are boosted by the pronounced highs of birch, while the slightly reduced mid-range of birch is increased by the even mid-range of walnut.
The two woods then combine brilliantly to deliver a big, full, punchy bottom end of warm tone.
The result is a drum kit that offers cutting projection ideal for live performances, but great depth of low-end tone perfect for studio recording.
Star-Cast Mounting System
Ensuring maximum resonance and stability, the Star-Cast Mounting System of this Starclassic kit aids secure positioning and easy placement of the rack tom.
The streamlined design of the Tama Star-Cast mount means it's easier to position your toms closer together to achieve your ideal, most comfortable playing position.
Upgrading the already innovative design, Tama have switched the construction of the Star-Cast mount to aluminium to provide a lighter weight and an even truer tonal vibration.
And, adding style to substance, the Tama Star Cast Mounting System is now chrome plated to match the shell hardware for a beautifully consistent overall drum kit aesthetic.
Quick-Lock Tom Brackets
Part of the Star-Cast System on floor and rack tom brackets, the innovative, patented Quick-Lock Tom Brackets allow fast and easy setup and pack down of the drum kit.
The quick lock and the tom bracket are one complete device on the drum. This means that once your drums are set up in your desired position there's no need to add extra locks or components to your kit.
All you have to do is slide the switch on the tom bracket to set the memory lock in position.
When the switch is slid the tom bracket then separates into two parts, with the lower inchœmemory lock inch portion remaining on the tom stand or floor leg.
No need for drum keys or extra components, a quick slide of the switch locks your positioning in place allowing you to set and forget your ideal placement.
Then, the next time you come to set up your kit you achieve consistent positioning with speed and ease.
Another positive aspect of this innovative design are the hidden acoustic benefits.
The quick-lock tom brackets feature a rubber lining which serves to reduce vibration transfer from the shell to the tom mount / tom legs, which isolates the drums and enhances the shell resonance.
All the toms of the Tama Starclassic Walnut/Birch kit are fitted with zinc Die-Cast hoops to provide a durable hold and easier tuning.
Offering a more consistent shape than triple flanged hoops, die-cast hoops are manufactured by injecting molten metal into moulds to ensure an even build.
In comparison, triple flanged hoops are constructed from metal plates that are bent into shape which can result in an inconsistency of shape that has a detrimental impact on the tuning response.
Having a consistent hoop shape results in a more accurate and reliable tuning response providing drums that are easier to tune and that stay in tune longer.
In this instance, the die-cast hoops create a crisper attack, with drums that deliver greater projection and a more focused, powerful tone.
Hold Tight Washers
Complementing the consistency of the die-cast hoops perfectly, the Tama 3-piece shell pack is fitted with hold tight washers.
Created to prevent tension rods loosening as you play, the Tama hold tight washers feature a patented C-shaped design which is fitted with a rubber ring.
Over time, as you play your drums, the vibration from the drumhead can cause tension rods to loosen.
The rubber rings within the hold tight washers help to absorb the impact of the vibration and hence keep the tension rods in constant contact with the hoops to prevent loosening.
The result is a drum kit with more consistent, longer lasting tuning which means you can spend less time tuning and more time playing!
Air Cushioned Floor Tom Legs
Working in conjunction with the quick-lock tom brackets, the Tama Starclassic Walnut Birch kit comes complete with specially designed floor tom legs to aid stability, assist drum resonance and improve playing feel.
Featuring innovative Starclassic Air Pocket rubber feet that house a special air chamber, the Tama air cushioned floor tom legs eliminate vibration transfer from the drum to the floor.
Transfer of vibration from the floor tom to the floor surface results in the suppression of the drum sustain and sound.
To prevent this dampening, the air chamber legs stop the transfer of the drum vibration to the floor which in turn improves the overall projection and resonance of the floor tom.
In addition, the air chamber feet help to absorb the shock of the drumstick hitting the drum for a better playing feel.
Bass Drum Spur Bracket and Claw Hooks
The Tama MSB30 die-cast bracket fitted to the bass drum of the Tama Starclassic Walnut Birch kick drum holds the bass spurs securely thanks to its powerful hinge mechanism.
Ensuring your bass drum remains firmly planted in place no matter how hard you play, the Tama bass drum spur prevents forward creep.
The unique memory marker found on the folding spur bracket helps to simplify set up to ensure you always achieve your ideal bass drum positioning.
The bass drum is also fitted with claw hooks which feature rubber spacers to keep the wood hoops protected from damage.
The bass drum hooks and hoops serve to work as one unit and don't separate or rattle even on loose tunings.
The result is a solid bass drum response and a consistent bass drum tuning that you can rely on.
As with all Tama Starclassic drums, this Walnut / Birch drum kit is fitted with Evans drumheads to ensure a durable playing response and a solid sound straight out of the box.
The rack and floor toms come complete with Evans Genera G2 2-ply clear batter heads over Genera G1 single ply clear resonant heads, while the bass drum is fitted with a Genera EQ4 clear batter head with a Tama logo resonant head on the front.
Offering a luscious tapered red aesthetic, a well-balanced blend of tone and innovative sound-assisting hardware, this Tama Starclassic shell pack is a stunning choice for the modern drummer.
The considered blend of walnut and birch ensures a full sound that's represented well across the full frequency range to deliver a sound that is perfectly suited to a range of musical styles and performance situations.
Highlighting Tama's constant pursuit of improved tone, the resonance-aiding hardware designs ensure this drum kit provides practical functionality and superb sound at all times.
