Hi Scotty, after a bit more googling it appears that this drum was made by a company in Las Vegas called Logo's Drums. Not sure why it was posted as a Tama Starclassic? Not too much info at this point. I did communicate with seller and he assured me a full refund if I am not happy with purchase.

So who knows, maybe a diamond in the rough for under $150.00 Time will tell.

Interesting. Not a bad looking drum by any means, although at a glance, I can definitely see why it would be mistaken for a Starclassic. Make sure to let us know how it sounds!

Yeah, S-Hoops offer the in-between sound. Since they curve inwards, they do indeed protect the bearing edge, and they don't dent your sticks so badly on rimshots.

So this drum arrived today. It is definitely not a Tama but still seems very well made. Looks like a Keller maple 8 ply shell? The but end has a snare tension adjustment which I have never seen before, the throw is nice and sturdy and functions well. I removed both heads and the bearing edges are in great shape. I needed to align the Puresound snare wires, they were not on right. I put a new Evans reverse dot on the batter and the Evans hazy 300 reso is still in great shape so I put that back on the drum. Tuned the drum up and it's sounds real good. Great finish hard to describe, changes color when the light hits it.

Over all I am happy with the drum, I'm a bit upset that the drum was advertised as a Tama starclassic maple when it clearly is not, however for under $150,
I did receive a pretty rare great sounding drum.

By the way the name on the drum is Logo's Drum Company. They were located in the Las Veigas area, but I think they are out of business? If anyone knows anything about this brand I would love to hear from you.

My humble Tama snare collection:

Tama AW 216 birch 6 1/2*14 original white with mighty hoops early 90s' I think.





My go to snare. I like it a lot.

Tama AW 038 maple 8*14 original white with die cast hoops, late '80s I think.







This one was as project that though it is complete to what it was back in the Artstar II years is not really play able at all.

I got the shell only from Ebay.com I was looking for the birch AW 218 and thought this was it. Then it turned out to be a AW 038 as the shell had freedom lugs and yellow marks from them. I got the lugs and die cast rims etc. to put it back together anyway but the shell needs to be recut at the bottom for the snare to be of use as its very uneven making tuning difficult.

Tama AW 216 birch 6 1/2 * 14 brown stained late '80s I think





Again a Ebay.com project that I still have to complete. I got some of the bow tie lugs and I think it is going to be those that I am going to use with die cast rims.
