The only thing that was "entry-level" about the TAMA Swingstar drums of the 2000s was the price.
The new Swingstar series comes with the legendary Omni-ball tom holder as well as hardware with double braced legs for increased stability. The bass drum features pre-installed heads equipped with an O-ring muffler and Accu-Tune hoop which make it easy to get a balanced sound right away.
100% Poplar 6ply 7.5mm
The full warm tone and medium attack offered by poplar wood has made it a mainstay of drum shell manufacturing for more than 50 years.
Swingstar shells are crafted with 100% poplar wood for a warm sound, excellent projection, and structural strength. Precise bearing edges provide the easier tuning that beginners need and the wide tuning range that pros demand.
Omnisphere Tom Holder
With its rock solid stability, TAMA's Omni-ball system has been acclaimed by pro drummers for well over twenty years. The Swingstar's Omni-ball system double tom holder allows you to achieve almost any angle by simply loosening one T-bolt.
A special formulation hi-tech material offers lighter weight, and faster, more stable tuning than traditional metal hoops. In addition, since Accu-Tune hoops use tension bolts instead of clawhooks and T-rods, head changes and packing up are a breeze.
Double Braced Hardware
Offering heavy-duty durability but light in weight, Swingstar hardware has many useful features derived from our high-end Roadpro hardware series. With 22.2mm diameter base tubing and double-braced legs, Swingstar stands offer supreme stability for all drummers.
Includes 1 pair of 13" Hi-hat cymbals and 1 -16" Crash/Ride.
