I have a Tama Starclassic Bubinga kit, its punchy and and has alot of attack like birch, but still has a nice sustaine and warm sound like maple. Its suppost to be the best of both worlds. I love it

good question, i'm actually thinking about buying the Tama Starclassic Bubinga set; however, i'm afraid that the sound will not be on par of my expectations. i've heard many mixed results about it and it's either u love it or hate it. the sound quality all depends on how u tune it, what heads, what kinda style, etc. etc. but basically i hear it's as warm as maple but has a sharp attack like birch. whatever ur personal preference is i suppose
