Default Tama Starclassic B/B pros - Need your help

Guys, I have a new Tama B/B that just gigged with it this weekend. The sound is amazing, it's a beauty etc, etc. However there is this orange/yellowish residue that is building up on the resonant head from inside the toms. Has anyone else dealt with it or know what it is?

No idea... Maybe some kind of sap is working out of the wood? Is the inside of the drum lacquered? I don't think it normally would be.

Maybe Tama is waxing the bearing edges on these drums. I use beeswax on mine but I don't remember seeing wax migrating to the heads.

Didn't experience that with the kit I just parted with and mine endured 18 months of steady gigging, 4 times per month. No idea what it could be.

Thanks for the tips guys, I appreciate it. I guess I'll take the heads off and use a clean cloth to see if there is anything coming from the shells or edges.

Before putting heads on for the first time, the edges seemed perfectly smooth and dry to the touch.

Bit of a shot in the dark, but it might be the glue used to affix the drumhead Mylar to its hoop. I've come across orangish glue on older remo heads. As I said, i could be way off the mark but it sounds just plain weird!!

Wow, nice catch man, thanks a lot! I never thought of it and it's a possibility - maybe it could it be due to the extreme weather changes we have had lately where I live/play? I'll look again.
