StarLight, when compared to other competitively priced birch marching drums, produce a more focused, powerful sound. This is accomplished, in part by Tama's insistence of utilizing a full 8 plies of birch, which also amounts to a stronger, more durable snare drum.
At the core, StarLight is an unadulterated expression of Tama's passion and deep experience with Birch as a shell material. StarLight snares feature 8 plies of 100% Birch, resulting in a snare that is not only powerful, and durable, but noticeably focused as well.
Light in weight but engineered for strength and structural integrity.
Surpassing the standard for value-level marching snares, Tama equips StarLight with 20-strand gut snares for unparalleled clarity and crispness.
