The Taye Specialty Snare Drums are made and finished by hand and are remarkably beautiful.
The Solid Maple Shell Snare drum is lathed from one piece of hand-selected North American Sugar Maple log--there are no seams, no staves, and no plies. If you opt for a wood hoop drum, you'll get 14-ply Sugar Maple hoops, hand finished in 100% tung nut oil and articulated hoop claws with resonance control spacers to allow quick head changes. Available sizes: 14 x 7, 14 x 6, 14 x 5 and 14 x 4-inches. Expect to pay around $1,500 for this beauty.
Less expensive at $800 is the 10-ply Sugar Maple Shell Snare drum made from 100% North American Sugar Maple. Taye uses a proprietary shell making process that combines high pressure and controlled heat, resulting in a very rigid 7.5mm thick shell. The tone is pure with a fat bottom-end and definitive attack. Wood Hoop models are also fitted with 14-ply Sugar Maple hoops and articulated hoop claws. Available sizes: 14 x 7, 14 x 6 and 14 x 5-inches.
Also priced at $800 are the aluminum alloy snare drums cold hammered into their final form--a 14 X 6-inch drum. The shell is 6mm thick with precision machined bearing edges and fitted with 14-ply Sugar Maple hoops and articulated hoop claws with resonance control spacers.
