Taye Specialty Snare Drum 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.
