Limited-edition 5-piece bubinga shell pack with a special blackwood outer ply

This limited-edition STAR Bubinga Exotix shell pack features all the premium touches of TAMA's elite STAR Bubinga drums, with an added outer ply of figured blackwood. Bubinga is an ultra-dense wood known for its supremely dark tone and fat low-end resonance. It was first introduced to the market by TAMA, who popularized the wood as part of their Starclassic series. For the STAR series, TAMA custom-designed the shells to get even more out of this exotic material. These STAR shells are 4.5mm thick at the center, much thinner than the Starclassic shells, allowing the wood to vibrate more freely. This darkens the sound, bringing out more of the special bubinga character. However, TAMA didn't want to sacrifice strength and projection, so they also added 12-ply, 9mm bubinga sound focus rings to the inside. Like other drums in the STAR Bubinga series, this limited-edition shell pack has an inner ply of cordia, finished by hand with oil to bring out the grain. But what makes these drums extra special is the figured blackwood outer ply. Wild, beautiful and natural, the dark grain is a classy touch, befitting top-tier professional drums. This kit is also decked out with all the other things players expect from STAR drums. It has the best TAMA hardware, including die-cast hoops, patented Super Resonant Mounting System and Quick-Lock tom brackets. Rounded bearing edges create maximum contact with the drum head. All shells come with heads made in the USA by Remo. Simply put, these are some of the finest drums TAMA has ever produced. These limited-edition drums are only available as part of a pre-configured shell pack. A matching snare drum is also available separately.
