Product Code: PMM146-STM
Barcode: 4515276480907

DESCRIPTION:

The combination of the Starphonic Maple’s open, resonant sound with the Grooved Hoop and super sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy gives this drum a rich, opne, crisp sound reminiscent of prized vintage snares.

Features:

  • Shell: 14″ x 6″ 6mm/6ply maple + outer 1ply mappa burl
  • Colour: Satin Mappa Burl (STM)
  • Lug: Freedom Lug
  • Hoop: Grooved Hoop (10lug)
  • Strainer/Butt: “Linear-Drive” Strainer/Detachable Butt
  • Snare Wire: MS20RL14C Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snare Wire

Let’s get to the details…

Grooved Hoop

Tama carefully studied the evolution of the hoop and its affect on a snare’s sound. They combined vintage design and modern technology to create the STARPHONIC snare’s new patented Grooved Hoop.

Bearing Edge

The STARPHONIC’s bearing edges have an angle on top of 2.5mm, inside from the outer surface of the shell. The edge is cut to a round collar to follow the natural shape of the drum head. This creates a better fit between the drum head and shell, maximising the resonance.

Super Sensitive Hi-Carbon Snappy Snare

This new piece of hardware fits more closely to the snare side head for greater sensitivity and brighter, crisper sound. It’s been redesigned using new materials and a customised plate shape and wire coil winding pattern.

Freedom Lug & Claw Hook

A new quick release system allows you to loosen the tension rods and tilt the claw hooks away from the Grooved Hoop. This makes changing drum heads quick and easy.

“Linear-Drive” Strainer

The STARPHONIC strainer uses a “Liner-Drive” system which provides greater control of the lever adjustment arm and the strainer’s deployment motion. Even if you move the arm quickly you won’t hear the usual ‘slap’ of the wires hitting the bottom head. The strainer movement is designed to work in a true linear motion similar to the motion found on “round sprocket” drum pedals. Most strainers are not designed like this and tend to speed up right before the snare wires connect with the snare side head. Also, by tilting the angle of the butt plate 30 degrees, this design holds the snare wire cords or tape more firmly and reduces unnecessary pressure on the strainer and shell.

Non-Loosening Rubber Gasket

STARPHONIC’s claw hooks feature a rubber block inside to prevent the tension bolts from loosening during playing. Once the tension bolt is tightened, the claw hook is pressed towards the rubber block inside the claw hook and adds pressure to the tension rod inside.

Detachable Butt Plate

The Detachable Strainer Butt allows you to change your snare side head, but keeps the snare wire tension in its original state. Just loosen the screws and detach the butt plate with the snappy snares still on. When you reattach the butt plate, the snare wire tension will be restored to its original position and calibration. The Grooved Snare Side Hoop features an open frame for simpler operation.

Ratchet Style Snappy Tension Adjuster

To prevent the snappy snares from loosening Tama incorporated a ratchet system on the strainer’s tension adjustment mechanism. Much like an adjustment tool with fine gears, it achieves high pressure retention, even with extreme settings. Single click adjustments offer a vertical pull of 0.083mm of wire motion, which allows you to achieve ultra sensitive micro-adjustments.

    Fixed my bass pedal for free so bought some bits and bobs and will always go here. The guy truly loves … More it. Great shop and deserve the recognition.

    outstanding staff, amazing drummer equipment and stunning drum kits
  • Avatar James Johnstone ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    We had a great first experience of Drummers Only today. Chris really pulled out all the stops to make … More it an enjoyable and memorable experience for our 8 year old daughter after travelling down from the North of Scotland to check out cymbals and drum heads that she’d been saving her pocket money for. She received great advice and was given all the time she needed to try things out and make up her mind. Thank you so much for your help today, it’s very much appreciated!

    How's the service? In a word, outstanding! Drummers Only is the only drum shop you should consider. … More They have an excellent selection of gear. If they don't have it, they can get it. Need to part-ex your current gear, no problem. The team live and breathe to serve the drumming community and are on hand to help you at every step of the way. Communication is excellent at every level. The best service I have received, hands down.

    Great bunch of guys. Super helpful and always a great range of stuff in the store.
  • Avatar Steve Brewer ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    I had an enquiry about using another brand's tom holder on a Sonor kit. The enquiry is quite specific … More and in no way could benefit a wider audience. Nevertheless the customer service has been excellent. Chris took time to understand fully my problem, made several useful suggestions and took it upon himself to experiment with potential suggestions on his own kits and out of hours too. I cannot praise the service I've received highly enough but can absolutely recommend Drummers Only as a company to do business with. This is how you hope all companies would operate.

    After being let down by an online company, we found Drummers Only. Chris was so helpful during our initial … More enquiry and gave us the confidence to buy. Our son's drum kit was assembled and ready to collect a few days later. The customer service, quality of the drum kit and smooth process made the entire transaction an absolute pleasure.Chris was knowledgeable, friendly and went the extra mile to ensure we were happy. Our son is delighted!

    Top class service. The guys couldn't be more helpful and knowledgeable. Pleasure to deal with and … More they have a customer for life.
  • Avatar Kevin Neill ★★★★★ a year ago
    Not a drummer myself and no nothing about it but I recently made a purchase from here.Genuine 5 star … More service from start to finish, can't thank these guys enough for the outstanding service I received.Highly recommended and will most certainly use again if the occasion arises.
  • Avatar Graham Johnston ★★★★★ a year ago
    Great service as always. Been buying almost all my gear (new and used) at Drummers Only since 2010. Numerous … More reasons but mainly the service and advice. I've dealt with most of the staff over the years, but mainly the now manager Chris who is a top lad and great asset to the store/company. Whether buying a new kit or a pair of sticks, he always takes time to give advice and support. This time it was a snare head; great advice on both selection and the black art of fitting & tuning. It's sounding sweet, thanks as always for the great service and support. THANKS CHRIS AND ALL AT DRUMMERS ONLY
  • Avatar Dougie Millar ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    Been a long time customer of drummers only and will continue to be as long as they are trading (which … More hopefully is a long long time). Always normally Chris I deal with and they are always happy to help and advise on questions about equipment. Brought my 1 year old son in to the store today and he loved it. Anything that he can hit with a drum stick that will make a very loud noise he loves.... So... Easy to see why he enjoyed the store. I don't doubt he will become a customer as he grows older himself. Big thanks for the help today on the purchase. Will be seeing you guys again very soon for more personal bank emptying expeditions.Dougie.
  • Avatar Philip McNab ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    Always a pleasure doing business with these guys. Paul was a great help and good advice with gear. Love … More the new store guys. Well done.
  • Avatar Jamie McKendrick ★★★★★ a year ago
    A fantastic store with a great range of anything to do with drumming, I had help from the lovely staff … More there who guided me on what I was looking for, as well as a kit to test them out prior to purchase!I highly recommend coming here for any new gear you are looking for, or a good guide on what you have in mind!
  • Avatar Claire Griffiths ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Ordered a Yamaha electronic kit for my son for Christmas. Great service in store, delivered promptly. … More However the snare drum was a bit loose on the frame and the guys not only ordered a new part but delivered it to my home personally. Great guys, great service and great products.
  • Avatar Gordy Turner ★★★★★ a year ago
    Very large store with large selection of drum sets and cymbals, highly knowledgeable and attentive staff … More with direct industry connections to get you exactly what you want. Warm and welcoming shopping experience , 5 stars
  • Avatar Damiano D ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Great drum shop has a huge selection and the customer service is decent. The guys in the shop are cool … More although they seem to be a carbon copy of each other. A little diversity in terms of personality wouldn't go a miss.

    A great bunch of lads. Expert advice and good gear. Worth the trip

  • Avatar Matty Clarke ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    I'd been after an 18" floor tom for a while.Bought a second hand PDP. To be honest it doesn't … More even look second hand. Really happy with it especially as it was practically half the price! I'm in the recording studio tomorrow so it'll be being put to good use. Already rehearsed with it and it sounds pukka! Deep and booming. Can't recommend Drummers Only enough. Really happy and as always your goods are shipped prompt with lots of protection.
