Loaded with pro features, yet affordably priced.
Tama's highest priority feature when developing the Superstar SK Hyper-Drive 5-Piece Drum Kit was the
sound. To enhance Superstar's great looks, basswood—with its excellent consistency and regular grain patterns—is
used for the inner plies on all Superstar shells. Precisely cut bearing edges bring out the great response and powerful resonance
of these superbly crafted shells. Bass drum shells are made from 7 plies of 7mm basswood; toms and snare drum are made from
6 plies of 6mm basswood.
How often have you imagined the drums you'd like to play? The sound. The professional hardware.
The finish gleaming in the spotlights. Then you wake up and see what you can really afford. Kind of an unwelcome reality check—unless
you've seen and played Tama Superstar. Superstar has all the killer looks and in-your-face attitude you expect from a pro
rock set. But Superstar is more than just attitude. Superstar provides all the power, projection, and durability you expect
from professional kit, but at a price that's much less than the traditional intermediate set. In sound, features looks and
quality, Superstar breaks through the price barriers and delivers the goods—all the sound and all the attitude you ever
No other drum embodies pro features at an affordable price like Superstar. In a first for this price range,
Superstar is equipped with the same zinc die-cast hoops featured on Starclassic drums. Die-cast hoops not only make tuning
easier and more consistent, they also provide crisp attack, clear and resonant highs, and much more powerful rim shots.
Superstar rack toms are fitted with the same Star-Cast Mounting System as Starclassic drums. This unique system offers total
tom isolation and unhindered shell resonance without the adverse effect on tuning or complicated head changes found in less
advanced suspension designs.
The Sound Bridge high-tension, low-mass lug was specifically designed for Superstar. Sound
Bridge's unique structure looks much like a traditional high-tension lug, but the body of the lug "floats" over the shell
to minimize shell contact so the drum can resonate to its fullest. However, Sound Bridge still offers all the benefits of
the traditional high-tension lug: it offsets the tension of the batter side and bottom side heads, reduces the stress on the
shell, and provides greater protection to the drum shell during transport.
