I just bought a Starclassic set, Can anyone tell me how to tell if its maple or birch? I know maple ones dont have badges attached like performers do but I saw a website that said Tama made some maple EFX sets with black badges. I have a Red silk color set the guy at Tama could not tell either. I looked in the catalog history and this set is not in any of them. It has black starcast mounts so I'm guessing 2005 model....Any help would be greatly apreciated.....

They got decals, OK so far (but the EFX, of course)...

...Correct! Tama made some Maples with wrapped finish back in 2003 to 2004. Something I learned here in the forum! And this info is confirmed by one of the @Tama-Guys.

This should assure it. The colors offered were 'Red Silk', 'Blue Silk', 'Silver Silk', and 'Charcoal Silk'. To be on the safe side, you should post some pictures. See the link in my signature to get how it's done. For comparison, here is a photo of another confirmed Tama SC Maple EFX in 'Red Silk'.

Correct. The Maple EFX never have been catalogued.

Hope that helps. Cheers, cloth

Red Silk was Maple only, and there was nothing like it in birch or bubinga.

They didn't do Red Oyster, sellers got the name wrong...it's Red Silk.
