The powerful focused sound of Birch shells combined with precision-engineered triple flanged hoops amounts to sonic performance that an audience can feel as well as hear.
At the core, StarLight is an unadulterated expression of Tama's passion and deep experience with Birch as a shell material. StarLight Tenors feature 8 plies of 100% Birch, amounting to a thickness that assures durability and rich tone.
The "open" response of a triple flange design is refined to perfection with this carefully crafted hoop-as durable as it is musical.
In combination with 6mm diameter tension bolts StarLight Tenor's aluminum die-cast lugs ensure strength and durability, even under the strain of high tension tuning.
Tenor drummers come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, yet historically tenor quads have lacked adjustability-until now. Tama StarLight Tenors feature four shell connector screws that allow players to customize drum angles,and the placement of the drum in relation to the player's body.
