Tama combines the sound of Bubinga with the looks of Cordia
|Tama was the first major drum maker to craft all-Bubinga drum sets. The rich-grained but difficult-to-work-with wood had previously seen use only as an attractive drum veneer. Tama still continues to make Bubinga drums with their Starclassic Bubinga Series and Bubinga Omni-Tune Series. Tama was also the first drum maker to utilize Cordia in the Artstar kits in 1983.|
At winter NAMM show 2008, Tama launched its Starclassic Bubinga Cordia series which combines beautifully-grained Cordia with Bubinga wood. Commented Tama's Terry Bissette on the latest addition to its professional Starclassic lines, "This is an absolutely perfect combination of woods. Bubinga is one of the richest sounding, warmest, and most versatile tonewoods ever utilized in drum making, and Cordia is, hands-down, one of the finest looking drum woods. To feature these two Tama landmark materials in one drum was a brilliant idea."
In the USA the new Starclassic Bubinga Cordia will be the same price as the Starclassic Bubinga Series drums that feature a premium maple outer-ply.
