  • My new (to me) Tama StarClassic

    I'll probably add this to my build thread as well, since I had been keeping pictures of both of my kits there...but it probably belongs here.

    Since I have to start taking my akit to gigs nowadays, I needed something that was a bit more professional than the piece of junk I had gotten from craigslist.

    Meet my "Walnut" 100% Birch, 2003 Tama StarClassic Performer. It sounds incredible.









    Sizes: 8x8 (not pictured), 10x8, 12x9, 14x11, 22x18, 14x5.5

    I'm in the process of buying all of the gear to safely take this thing on the road. Already got an SKB Trap Case, and an SKB Cymbal Vault. Next up is Protection Racket bags, I think.

    Isn't she pretty?

    Yeah, very nice. I never think about getting a red kit until I see one as nice as that, beautiful! Good luck with it!

      That's 'Wow'....

      So the shells are 100% birch with an outer ply of walnut?

        No, the shells are 100% birch...the lacquer finish is called "Walnut" (which is a bit odd, because I think of walnut as a bit more brown than this one appears).

        The Birch grain is beautiful. I wasn't really looking for a "red" kit, but once I saw and, more importantly, heard this set...I had to have it.

            I love StarClassic Performers. They are pro in every way. The birch shells sound fantastic in almost any setting.

              That 'Walnut' bit threw me off, indeed... But, Man... is that a stunning finish, or what?

                  I have 2 sets .one set of performer birch ( black silk wrap),and a starclassic b/b in dark cherry fade .Bother sound amazing, but I have become addicted to the E's and have converted both sets.

                    Thanks, I do love them. I should get some updated pics. Here are a few old ones with the 8x8 tom in place, and without flash on the camera to show a more accurate color.

                      Beautiful kit. Love the finish. I have two Tama SCs myself. 1 birch Performer and 1 birch/bubinga Performer. Great drums. Enjoy!

                        Thanks!, and what great timing for a thread bump! Just last week I finally managed, after a year of searching, to find a matching 16x16 floor tom.

                        I have to get some updated pics!

                          Wow, 16x16 is almost like having a vertical kick drum (bass). Cool, pics soon right?
