The Tama SLP Studio Maple Shell Pack can serve as the stunning centrepiece of your drum setup. Its gorgeous aesthetics aren't the only draw though, as this kit was designed to meet the forward-thinking demands of modern players.
With a kick, pair of high toms, and a dual dose of floor toms, you have the main essentials at your disposal. Just find your perfect snare to match up with this kit, and you'll have a truly enviable setup!
All of the shells in this pack are formed of Maple, a bright-sounding tonewood that offers up a tight response with plenty of mid-range punch. Whether you're a hard-hitter or a more delicate player, the amount of dynamic range offered by these shells is superb, lending themselves to all types of articulation.
With thick 22mm Maple wood hoops around each shell, these add some smooth low-end warmth and power, improving the overall versatility of the kit. They are also perfect for rim shots, ringing out with brilliant clarity and definition.
The toms have a musical and punchy mid-range, thanks to the tonal properties of the Maple. This ensures that they won't get buried in a busy live mix, or drowned out particularly by bass guitar frequencies. The 22"x16" kick drum also sounds clear and full-bodied, with a solid low-end bellow.
The SLP's hardware matches its high-end construction, to offer class-leading tones and functionality. The Direct-Flexi Mount system ensures excellent resonance and sustain, translating the full tonal perks of the Maple shells.
Thanks to its two-piece structure (the shell plate and L-rod receiver), a steel shaft hinges the two pieces together, allowing for some movement when hitting the drum. This therefore lets the drum ring with more freedom, improving sustain yet staying controlled enough for a smooth decay.
Included in this kit:
22"x16" Bass Drum
14"x14" Floor Tom
16"x16" Floor Tom
MTH1000 Double Tom Holder
Here's what Tama Say about the Studio Maple Shell Pack:
The Studio Maple kit is very original model in both sound and appearance, with Sound Focus Rings on the inside of the shells and 100% Maple Wood Hoops. It has a focused, warm, woody tone with clear attack, and a relatively short sustain with beautiful decay. While great for live performance, this model really excels in the studio, especially when seeking a warm sound with controlled resonance.
Maple Wood Hoop
The 22 mm thick hoops provides warm sound and powerful attack, especially rim shot.
This Direct-Flexi Mount utilizes a two-piece structure – a plate that is mounted to the shell, and another piece that receives the L-rod of a tom holder/stand. These two parts are hinged together using a steel shaft, allowing some slight horizontal play when striking the drum. This controls the vibration of the shell while still allowing it to resonate more freely than traditional direct-to-shell mounts. This in turn provides sustain and smooth decay for a smooth, transparent sound that draws out the intrinsic characteristics of the shell material.
