Default Tama Starclassic Bubinga Elite

This is my Tama Starclassic Bubinga Elite kit. Bought it in March 2007, it was discounted because it was a demo model at the local drum shop, but it had no defects! That's a good way to buy a Bubinga kit if you ask me :)

The finish is Tama's Black Metallic Gold Inlay (IBMG). The photos reflect a 1 up 1 down setup ... I like having everything really close.

It took me years to finally be able to put this kit together. If you're still looking for the kit of your dreams, be patient. There is hope! I am still hoping to add a 14" floor tom, but boy are they hard to find ... buying it new from Tama would cost almost $1000!
