Tani - Tama Starclassic Maple

Tama Starclassic Maple

Tama Starclassic Maple

I am a happy drummer that has, since last year in December (Santa Claus :-), had a set of Tama Starclassic Maple, DMB with Black Nickel hardware.

Well, the sound is magnificent, especially the resonance of all the toms and bass drum.
I do not know if other more expensive maple drums will kick in sound the Tama ones, but I do not know what else I could wish for...

My kit is 22" bass drum, 10" & 12" attached toms and 16" floor tom. I would recommend those drums to any "maple" lover. The price is not cheap in Europe, but with some negotiations could be a decent one.

The only problem I see is if you need additional drums, like, for example an 8" attached tom. Why this is difficult to get? Maybe someone from Hoshino Gakki could give an answer to this.
