Silverstar drums deliver the sound you expect from fine vintage drums, combined with the quality you expect from TAMA—all at a price that's well within reach. Birch shells, Triple Flanged Hoops, Star-Mounting system, and a slidable tom holder make it the ideal choice for drummers looking for creative inspiration. With a wide variety of drum sizes and kit configurations, Silverstar drums provide an open ended sonic palette that's superbly suited to any genre.

Birch shells (Silverstar)

(TT/FT/SD) 6ply, 6mm / (BD) 7ply, 8mm
Carefully selected birch materials are utilized for the shells in the Silverstar series. By using the same molding methods used for our high-end drums, a powerful sound, rich tone, and warm resonance usually only found with high-end drums are achieved.
