A new year means new gear so in this article we are going to cover some hot new releases for 2019 Tama drums!
First up we have the Starclassic Walnut/Birch kit. All I can say is wow. The acoustic characteristics of this wood combination are a focused warm tone with a clear attack. It will undoubtedly carve out its own space when playing with a band. Featuring die-cast hoops, star-cast mounting system, and quick-lock brackets on the toms and floor toms. All of these features together will provide any drummer with precise tuning and crisp sonic attack! Of course, the only piece that will complete this kit is the matching snare drum to tie everything together. This will be available in Lacquer Ocean Blue Ripple and Molten Brown Burst and Lacquer Phantasm Oyster as shown.
Next up in the 2019 Tama lineup, we have the Superstar Classic Neo Mod 3Pc Kit. This is a vintage inspired kit that has modern build technology. It features a compact configuration; 10″x20″ Bass Drum, 7″X12″ Tom and 9″X14″ Floor Tom. It offers a clear attack with punch and power that has a strong sound in a variety of playing situations. This kit will be available in Mod Blue Duco as pictured, and White Smoke.
This snare drum is badass, I think we can all agree on that. The black on black Steel Snare produces a bright tone with a crisp and tight response when tuned high, when tuned low it has a smooth resonance. Down to the specs, it features a 1.2mm steel shell with center ridge, 1.6mm triple flanged hoop, and a carbon steel snare wire. Lastly, it has an all matte black finish with a brass badge, brass grommet, and matte black shell hardware. This will be available in 5.5″X14″ and 6.5″X14″.
The S.L.P G-Maple Snare has an incredible finish that looks almost like coffee swirling as you pour in some milk or cream. It is built on a thick foundation of 11mm and has a 13ply maple shell that produces a bright sound, and still has volume and sensitivity. It also features 2.3mm flanged hoops and separate low-mass lugs that enable the shell to resonate naturally. Lastly, it has super sensitive hi-carbon snare wire and Evans G1 Coated heads.
