Tama SL52KBN Description:
Superstar Custom Accel Driver
MORE THAN JUST ATTITUDE (but with attitude to spare)
How often have you imagined the drums you'd like to play? The sound. The professional hardware. The finish gleaming in the spotlights.
Then you wake up and see what you can really afford. Kind of an unwelcome reality check-unless you've seen and played TAMA Superstar.
Superstar has all the killer looks and in-your-face attitude you expect from a pro rock set. But Superstar is "More Than Just Attitude."
Superstar provides all the power, projection, and durability you expect from professional kit, but at a price that's much less than the traditional intermediate set.
In sound, features looks and quality, Superstar breaks thru the price barriers and delivers the goods-all the sound and all the attitude you ever dreamed of.
Tama SL52KBN Features:
Bass Drum : 7ply, 7mm
Tom Tom, Floor Tom & Snare Drum : 6ply, 6mm
Our highest priority feature when developing the Superstar series was sound. Superstar shells use birch for the main inner ply for strong projection and aggressive open sound.
To enhance Superstar's great looks, basswood, with its excellent consistency and regular grain patterns, is utilized for the inner ply on all Superstar shells as well as the outer ply on Superstar Custom SL.
Precisely cut bearing edges bring out the great response and powerful resonance of these superbly crafted shells.
Black Nickel Shell Hardware (Superstar Accel Driver)
In Superstar Accel Driver, all shell hardware is finished in Black Nickel Plated.
The beautiful looking produces a higher-grade sense of quality.
Star-Cast Mounting System (Superstar Accel Driver)
Superstar Accel Driver rack toms are fitted with a Star-Cast Mounting System similar to Starclassic drums.
This unique system offers total tom isolation and unhindered shell resonance without the adverse effect on tuning or complicated head changes found in less advanced suspension designs.
Sound Bridge High-Tension Lugs
The Sound Bridge high-tension, low-mass lug was specifically designed for Superstar. Sound Bridge's unique structure looks much like a traditional high-tension lug, but the body of the lug "floats" over the shell to minimize shell contact so the drum can resonate to its fullest.
However, Sound Bridge still offers all the benefits of the traditional high-tension lug: it offsets the tension of the batter side and bottom side heads, reduces the stress on the shell, and provides greater protection to the drum shell during transport.
Accel Driver Kit Configuration
By popular demand, Superstar sets are now available in Accel Driver configuration, in addition to Hyper-Drive configuration.
5-pc shell kit comes with 8x10" & 9x12" Accel depth hanging toms, 18x22" bass drum with tom mount, 14x16" floor tom and 5.5x14" matching finish wood snare drum.
In addition to the 5-pc shell pack, a complete kit (with 5-pc hardware pack) is available.
Die-Cast Hoops (Black Nickel Plated)
No other drum embodies pro features at an affordable price like Superstar.
In a first for this price range, Superstar is equipped with the same zinc die-cast hoops featured on Starclassic drums.
Die-cast hoops not only make tuning easier and more consistent, they also provide crisp attack, clear and resonant highs, and much more powerful rim shots.
Power Craft Drumheads
All Superstar's "Power Craft" drum heads ensure a great sound practically right out of the box!
Batter side heads are made of Dupont® Mylar® film for richer tone and greater durability.
Ring mufflers on bass drum heads remove the need for extra internal muffling.
Quick-Set Tilter (US PAT.NO.7385127)
The toothless "Quick-Set" tilter securely holds position with the friction of six metal disc plates instead of traditional gears so you can adjust it to any angle you desire.
This mechanism also has a more durable structure than the conventional gear tilter.
