Tama announces second Starclassic Reserve kit in Smoky Satin Walnut

Tama has announced the Starclassic Bubinga Reserve Smoky Satin Walnut kit; high-end drums for the serious collector. Only 50 sets have been made, but unlike Tama's new hand-engraved snares, they'll be available worldwide, with less than 25 slated for US distribution.

The kit comes in two configurations: a 5-piece with a compact 18"x20" bass drum and a 6-piece with a relatively deeper 18"x22" kick. Optional add-ons include a 7"x8" tom and 14"x16" floor tom with all shells featuring an outer-ply of North American walnut.

The Smoky Satin Walnut has a list price of $7689.99, and marks only the second series of Reserve kits ever made. The first was the Maple Reserve debuted at Summer NAMM 2005.

In other Tama news…

The company have re-released the original 2005 Superstar configurations. For a time, Tama only offered its pre-packaged Superstar kits in the Hyper-Drive set-up, which features short shallow-depth toms combined with a deeper bass drum. Apparently due to popular demand, the slightly deeper toms of the Accel-Driver configuration are now back on the market.
