First of many drum demos. Ben takes a look at the Tama Ltd Edition Superstar Hyperdrive Shell Pack, in Figured Maple Ocean Fade.
Delivering a punchy, clear attack, with balanced, bright tones, the Tama Superstar HyperDrive Limited Edition Shell pack looks just as good as it sounds.


The Tama Superstar HyperDrive 5pc Shell Pack is a limited edition shell pack from Tama, featuring a stunning figured maple outer ply and ocean fade finish.

The Superstar HyperDrive kit features all-maple shells fitted with high-quality black nickel hardware, offering enhanced strength and durability to the shells whilst complementing the general aesthetic of the kit.

With die-cast hoops and Power Craft II drumheads, the kit features Tama's advanced star-cast mounting system, providing maximum resonance and stability to the toms.

Maple Shells

Tama Superstar Hyperdrive shells are manufactured from carefully selected maple with a focus on shell moulding and bearing edge shape. The 6 ply, 5 mm shells (8-ply, 7 mm bass drum) produce full, powerful character and rich resonance with striking visual flare from its blue metallic finish and stylish badge design.

Die-Cast Hoops and Power Craft II Heads

Zinc Die-Hoops manufactured by injecting molten metal into moulds, have more density and are more consistent in shape than triple-flanged hoops, offering crisper attack, clear and resonant highs and much more powerful rim shots. Die-Cast hoops make tuning more consistent and easier to achieve because the tension bolts always contact the hoop properly. Featured on the Superstar drums are the 'Power Craft II' drum heads that sound incredible. On the bass drum heads, the power craft II features ring mufflers that already muffle the bass drum, removing the need to add external mufflers.

Claw Hooks

The claw hooks stabilise the wooden bass drum hoops, keeping them in place no matter how hard you play. The claws feature built-in rubber lining which help protect the wood and maintain tuning even during long performances. The rubber spaces also help protect the claw hooks and tension bolts from damage when the bass drum is placed on the ground.

Star-Cast Mounting System

Tama's Star-Cast mounting system provides maximum resonance and stability in a streamlined design that allows closer tom positioning for greater ease and comfort. An aluminium construction provides lighter weight and even truer tonal vibration.

Sound Bridge High-Tension Lugs

The sound bridge high-tension lugs are specially designed for the Superstar kit, looking like traditional high tensions lugs but the body floats over the shell to minimise shell contact. This design allows the drumhead to resonate to its fullest, whilst providing all the normal benefits of a high-tension lug. The lugs offset the tension of the batter side and bottom side heads, reduces the stress on the shell, and provides greater protection to the drum shell during transport.

Perfect Foundation Setup

The Tama Superstar HyperDrive Limited Edition Shell Pack offers a foundation setup that can be finished with the hardware and cymbals of your choice and expanded with add-on drums and holders if you choose. When paired with high-quality cymbals and hardware, the Superstar HyperDrive Shell Pack offers a great learning experience for intermediate drummers, whilst offering the high-quality components and features which more advanced drummers require.
