Tama B42BNS Description:

Tama Starclassic Bubinga 4 pc Shell Kit with 22" bass and 16" Floor Tom

Tama's newest Starclassic line combines the awesome power of Bubinga with Starclassic single lugs.

Shell consists of 8 ply Bubinga with Canadian Maple outer-ply. Drum sizes are 18x22 bass, 8x10 tom, 9x12 tom and 14x16 Floor tom. New streamlined, lightweight Star-Cast mounts match the shell hardware and allow easier and closer tom placement.


Starclassic Bubinga ELITE has created a completely new standard of sonic and visual excellence.

Exquisitely grained outer-plies are carefully hand-selected for their extraordinary beauty and to ensure astonishing drum-to-drum consistency.

Where different sections of woods or covering are joined, you can touch where each piece meets and experience the feeling of "seamlessness" found in no other drum.

There are ten new and very different handcraft-intensive finishes in Bubinga ELITE including two of rare cordia, one of beatifully-grained quilted bubinga, two new lacquer finishes, and three multi-sparkle covered finishes.

Tama B42BNS Features:

Shells(Starclassic Bubinga ELITE)

8ply bubinga + 1 outer ply maple or Cordia(*) or Quilted Bubinga (**) shell TT/FT:7mm BD:8mm

*Shell finishes:NCD or NGC

**Shell finishes:QMOB

African bubinga wood is approximately 53% harder than maple and birch.

Acoustically speaking, bubinga provides very sharp and aggressive attack combined with unbelievably rich and fat lows.

Our bubinga shells are slightly thicker than our maple drums which we have determined allows the drums to speak their fullest

Minimum Shell Contact (Starclassic Bubinga ELITE/Bubinga)

Our designers never stop looking for new ways to increase drum resonance. Nothing is too small to consider because many minutes improvements can add up to a signifcant difference in sound.

Two good examples of this kind of exacting research are the replacement of the traditional metal badge with the new imprinted insignia and the small metal soundhole with one made of maple.

Shell Depths (Staclassic Bubinga ELITE/Bubinga)

To achieve the sound and response you are looking for, Starclassic Bubinga offer a choice of six different depths ranging from the shallow Hyper-Drive to the cavernous X-tra Deep.

Also, the 20"x22" Ultra Deep bass drum size. This size provides thunderous low end combined with maximum resonance.

*Hyper-Drive sizes: 6"x8", 6.5"x10", 7"x12", 7.5"x13", 8"x14"

Star-Cast Mounting System(US.PAT.NO.5454288) (Starclassic Bubinga ELITE/Bubinga)

The Star-Cast Mounting System has always provided maximum resonance and stability for TAMA's pro-drums.

A streamlined design makes it easier to position toms closer together for greater ease and comfort than ever before.

In addition, a switch to aluminum provides lighter weight and even truer tonal vibration. Last but not least, Star-Cast is now plated to match your drum's shell hardware!

Die-Cast Hoops

Hoops not only affect drum tuning; they also affect drum sound. That's why the choice of hoops was so important to the designers of TAMA's professional drum lines.

For our Starclassic Series, we choose zinc die-cast hoops, which are manufactured by injecting molten metal into molds.

Die-cast hoops have more density and are more consistent in shape than triple flanged hoops, which are manufactured by bending metal plates.

Die-cast hoops make tuning more consistent and easier to achieve because the tension bolts always contact the hoop properly.

Drums fitted with die-cast hoops also offer crisper attack, clear and resonant highs and much more powerful rim shots.

Claw Hooks(Starclassic Bubinga ELITE/Bubinga)

Starclassic Bubinga ELITE/Bubinga's claw hooks feature rubber spacers that help protect wood hoops from damage.

The hooks and hoops work as one unit and won't separate or rattle, even on loose tunings.

Bass Drum Spur Bracket(Starclassic Bubinga ELITE/Bubinga)

TAMA's MSB30 die-cast bracket holds the spur bracket securely, thanks to the same powerful hinge mechanism used on the MTB30 mounting bracket.

Unique memory markers found on the folding spur bracket help simplify set up.

Air Cushioned Floor Tom Legs

Starclassic's Air Pocket™ rubber feet feature a special air chamber, that eliminates the transfer of vibrations to the floor (which chokes sustain and sound) and absorbs shock for better playing.

Hold Tight™ Washers (US.PAT.NO.7307204)

The Hold Tight washer is a totally unique invention: a non-loosening washer! Its cup-shaped stainless steel washer contains a rubber ring so the tension rod pushes both the cup washer and the rubber ring.

Normally, vibrations will eventually loosen the tension rod.

But the softness of Hold Tight's rubber ring keeps it in contact with both the tension rod and the hoop at all times and maintains friction between them, so that tension is always preserved.

Evans® Heads

Evans® heads are featured on all Starclassic drums (except bass drum front heads).

On the rack and floor toms, Genera G2 2-ply clear batter heads and Genera G1 1-ply clear bottom heads provide both durability and solid sound.

Starclassic bass drums are fitted with Genera EQ4 clear batter heads.
