Tama Superstar Classic Custom Seven Piece Drum Set
Tama’s Superstar classic is the ultimate mid-level drum set with maple shells that are more musical than some of Tama’s less expensive kits. This is one of the least expensive kits that I have found with all maple shells which themselves are very versatile for playing multiple genres of music. The Superstar classic is basically the maple version of the Tama Silverstar, which are also great sounding kits in their own right.
The Superstar Classic features Tama’s non-intrusive Star-Mount system which does a fantastic job of allowing the drums to ring true while eliminating hardware buzz. Another nice perk of this kit is the ball and socket tom holders seem to be more durable than comparable systems from other manufacturers. While the included stock drumheads will probably need to be replaced with better sounding heads, this is expected with most kits at this price point. However, my favorite feature of this pick is it’s really affordable for such a great sounding maple drum set.
