Although they feature one of the most popular and traditional drum shell materials, STAR Maple drums have some very unique hidden features that set them apart from the rest. The ultra-thin 5 ply, 5mm shells are comprised of a 2mm thick solid wood core ply, sandwiched between 1.5mm thick cross-laminated plies on both sides. Traditional Maple shells generally sound bright and open. Our STAR Maple shells share those characteristics, but also add rich dynamics, body, and warmth, by utilizing a solid ply core. The concept is similar to other solid shell drums, but our unique shell construction allows the shells to be very thin by comparison. This groundbreaking design gives STAR Maples shells the bright, open tone one expects from Maple, as well as the rich sound character of solid shell drums, resulting in a truly one-of-a-kind, outstanding combination.
Vibration produced by hitting a drum transfers to the shell through the contact point between the drumhead and the shell. Therefore, the shape of the bearing edges is one of the most important factors in a drum’s sound. STAR drums feature a bearing edge shape as shown in the diagram. Its peak is rounder than TAMA’s traditional bearing edge. This rounded peak provides more contact between the drumhead and shell, allowing vibration to travel from the drumhead to the shell more efficiently. Also, the peak position of the edge is 3.5mm from the shell’s outer surface, which further improves contact between the drumhead and drum.
In a very time consuming process, the bearing edges and insides of all STAR drum shells are meticulously hand finished with oil for a luxurious look. STAR Bubinga shells feature an oil-finished inner ply of Cordia, while STAR Maple drums feature oil-finished Maple interiors.
SUPER RESONANT MOUNTING SYSTEM
To maximize the natural resonance of drums, tom toms should be mounted with minimal stress and strain on the shells and hoops. STAR drums feature our brand new mounting concept to achieve this goal, called the Super Resonant Mounting System.
