Clayton Prolemon Polish

Starclassic Performer B/B - PL42SSIB

The distinct and traditional sound of birch has made it the choice of many pro drummers for the last 30 years. But TAMA believes it's time to take birch in an entirely different direction. By using bubinga wood for the inner layers of a birch shell, TAMA has created a mixture that provides a new sound with a sweeter and deeper tone. This combination exhibits the focused attack of birch along with the enhanced lows of bubinga.

By using bubinga wood for the inner layer of the birch shell, TAMA has created a new chapter in the Starclassic series.

Hybrid tone, which exhibits the focused attack of birch paired with the enhanced lows of bubinga.
Star-Cast Mounting System(US.PAT.NO.5454288) (Starclassic Performer B/B): 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!
Sliding Tom Holder: Starclassic Performer's tom-holder expands setting flexibility with a sliding connector unit that moves back and forth up to 50mm (2 inches). Simply unloosening one bolt allows you to adjust the proximity of the tom toms. Now any sized drum can be exactly positioned with ease!
Die-Cast Hoops: 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 Performer B/B): Starclassic Performer B/B'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 Performer B/B): 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: 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.
