This is a four-piece Tama Starclassic Maple shell set in Molten Satin Brown Burst. With this series, Tama incorporated successful elements from the past while using thinner drum shells. These thin shells ensure optimal transferal of vibrations from the drumhead to the shells, to better emphasise the maple's warm sound. The kit consists of a 22 x 18-inch virgin bass drum, 10 x 8 and 12 x 9-inch toms and a 16 x 14-inch floor tom, all of which feature chrome-plated hardware.

Optimal sound
To ensure maximum durability, Tama made the plies of wood that make up the shell thinner, instead of using fewer plies of wood. As a result, the 6-ply toms and floor tom are only 5 mm thick, while the 8-ply bass drum is only 7 mm. The toms are mounted with the StarCast tom mounting system, which suspends them by their hoops, making minimal contact with the drum shell. The floor tom legs, meanwhile, are fitted with special air chambers to prevent the vibrations (and thus the sound) from disappearing into the ground. All of these features aim to optimize resonance.

Other hardware
The toms and floor tom are also equipped with Tama's unique Quick-Lock system, which ensures that setting up your kit can be done in a matter of moments. Furthermore, the hoops are made of die-cast zinc, to ensure they have no weak spots and to keep the drumhead tension consistent. In that regard, they are helped by the special rubber Hold Tight washers, which also prevent the tension rods from coming loose. Finally, the bass drum claw hooks feature rubber spacers, which protects the wooden bass drum hoops and prevents them from rattling.
