StarLight Bass Drums

The low-end power of the bass drum is critical to providing a strong foundation to any drum corp. Offering a variety of bass drum sizes, StarLight's core concepts are sustained throughout the line-thick Birch shells that yield a powerful and robust sound. Innovative features such as a Noiseless Locking Carrier and Light Weight Lugs offer players ease of movement and increased overall comfort, helping performers get the most from their bass drum set-up.

All Birch Shell

At the core, StarLight is an unadulterated expression of Tama's passion and deep experience with Birch as a shell material. StarLight Bass Drum are constructed of 7 plies of 100% Birch, amounting to a 7mm shell.

Noiseless Locking Carrier Attachment

Usually marching bass drums are attached to the carrier by hooking onto eye bolts. This system does not hold the drum firmly and the bass drum wobbles and makes noise. This harms the player's performance. TAMA Marching Bass Drums eliminate the space between the bass drum and carrier by applying the joint locking system similar to the snare and tenor drums. TAMA Marching Bass Drums are designed for stability in the most demanding of performances.

Light-Weight Aluminum Die Cast High-Tension Lugs

TAMA Marching Bass Drums feature light-weight aluminum die-cast lugs and 6 mm diameter tension bolts designed for strength and durability for high-pitch tuning.

Claw Hooks

TAMA Claw Hooks have been created only for TAMA Marching Bass Drums. TAMA Claw Hooks are designed with superior strength for high-pitch tuning.
