The Tama Superstar Classic 18” Shell Pack in Transparent Black Burst features 100% maple shells for a kit that sounds and looks amazing at a great price. With forward thinking hardware design such as the Star-Mount System, this is a drum kit that offers top quality and superb functionality.
With over 40 years of success under their belt, Tama Superstar kits are known for their ground-breaking design, superior build quality and clear projection of tone.
Building on the popularity of their previous models, Tama have used their experience to create an all-new Superstar Classic kit that combines the success of the past with the progression of new design.
Featuring streamlined hardware, an innovative mounting system and thinner maple shells, this is a kit that delivers functionality and tone in abundance.

- 14” x 5” Snare Drum
- 12” x 8” Rack Tom
- 14” x 14” Floor Tom
- 18” x 14” Bass Drum with Bass Drum Lifter

Well known for its even high and mid frequency response and luscious warm lows, maple delivers a great all-purpose drum sound.
Featuring a 6-ply shell construction on the toms and snare and a slightly thicker 8-ply build on the bass drum, the Tama Superstar Classic kit has a full, powerful character.
Sound was the top priority in the creation of the Tama Superstar Classic drums and it truly shows.
The kit features carefully selected maple shells that have gone through an intently focussed shell moulding process before the cutting of the bearing edge shape.
Producing a full, rich resonance with great clear projection, this Tama drum kit delivers the power needed to cut through in live situations and the depth of tone ideal for studio recording.
Power Craft II
The Superstar Classic Maple Drum Kit is fitted with Power Craft 2 drumheads as standard to deliver a great sound straight out of the box.
The toms and bass feature clear Superstar Power Craft 2 heads and the snare has a duo snare batter head for a durable and responsive feel.
The bass drum head also features ring mufflers preventing the need for extra internal muffling and ensuring an instantly satisfying bass response.
The compact 18” bass drum comes with an included bass drum lifter and is fitted with claw hooks which work to stabilise the wood hoops on the bass drum.
Featuring a built-in lining to protect the wood, the lined claws maintain consistent bass drum tuning for long lasting performance.
Omnisphere Tom Holder
The Tama Superstar Classic drums come complete with a Tama L-Rod and Omnisphere Tom holder system to ensure strong, stable and secure tom mounting from the bass drum.
Featuring an acclaimed design, the omnisphere tom mount serves to provide easy positioning, maximum flexibility and reliable stability.
Designed to prevent impedance of the tom sound, great care has been taken in the design of the Tama tom holder to make sure it aids resonance rather than dampening the drum shell.
Delivering better sound support than standard tom mount designs that penetrate the shell interior and inhibit resonance, the tom omnisphere and l-arm ensures robust tom placement without jeopardising the tone.
Low Mass Lugs
Delivering a classic look in keeping with the name of the drum kit, the streamlined low mass single lugs of the Tama Superstar Classic give a nod to the simpler art and design of 1970s drum kits.
The 18” Tama Superstar Classic shell pack features the newly design low mass lugs which not only add a sleek appearance to the kit but also serve to benefit the drum sound.
The small size of the lugs ensures limited contact with the shell by reducing the surface area that the lugs occupy.
The result is a stylish compact lug that doesn’t hinder drum resonance, instead it maintains minimal contact with the shell to ensure as little interference with the sound as possible.
Specifically developed to increase drum resonance, the new Tama Star-Mount System provides support at 4 different points on the batter side hoop.
The star mount rim links to 4 tension rods to ensure a strong hold that remains separate from the drum shell at all times, ensuring unimpeded resonance and improved shell vibration.
Aiding further flexibility and comfortable positioning, should you ever want to add a second rack tom to the kit, the bracket eye-bolts of the Star Mount System can be slid left and right to prevent the eye-bolts from touching each other even when toms are set up close together.
This stunning Superstar Classic kit is finished in a beautiful transparent black lacquer for an impressively professional aesthetic.
As classic as a little black dress, solid black drum kits have stood the test of time to remain a staple option among drum kit finishes across all brands.
The classic black colour features a shimmering lacquer finish for a sparkle of quality shine.
The dark colour of the shells is complemented perfectly by the contrasting bright chrome hardware.
The 70s style low mass lugs and the ever-popular black finish are enhanced further by the old school T-shaped Tama badge which delivers a nod to the history of this well-established, well-respected brand.
Combining classic looks with forward thinking design, this Tama shell pack is a great choice for the modern drummer who wants a 70s aesthetic.
The all maple shells deliver a stunningly well-rounded sound filled with even highs and full, warm lows for a tone that’s ideal for all music styles and settings.
The stunning black finish is complemented perfectly by the low mass lugs and T-shaped badge for an overall classic aesthetic.
The star-mount system and omnisphere tom holder, with its resonance aiding functionality and secure positioning, highlights Tama’s emphasis on keeping sound at the forefront of their design.
