6-ply maple shell delivers warmth, resonance, and punch
The TAMA Starclassic Maple floor tom's shell is built from six plies of super-thin maple. When it comes to drum shell design, Sweetwater drummers know that thinner is better, because it ensures optimum vibrational transfer. Thinner doesn't mean weaker, however. Each ply has been cross-laminated into a highly durable 6-ply, 5mm-thick shell that's considerably stronger than thicker shells of lesser quality. And because this floor tom features all-maple construction, you can expect a warm, clear sound with loads of punch and resonance.
Premium die-cast zinc hoops provide consistent tuning and superior tone
Did you know that the hoops on your drum affect far more than your tuning stability? That's why TAMA created premium die-cast zinc hoops for their Starclassic Maple floor tom. Manufactured via a high-density injection molding process, rather than a conventionally stamped triple-flanged hoop method, these extremely consistent hoops provide uniform bolt contact and give your Starclassic Maple floor tom crisper attack with added high-end resonance.
