||EFS Shell Technology:
Engineered For Sound. Among other innovations, Taye EFS utilizes cross-lamination in the shell formation process. Cross-lamination is the method of perpendicularly alternating the direction of the wood grain within the plies, providing drums with extremely rigid shells, resulting in breathtakingly broad tuning ranges.
Another Taye innovation. With no internal pressure points, PocketHinge effectively distributes force across a wide area of the rod to which it mounts, delivering dependable, slip-free performance.
Simply designed for optimum performance, this side-action release system employs a minimum of moving parts. With a large knurled tension knob for easy snare adjustment, and our unique SlipLock feature that prevents unwanted loosening of snare tension, SideLatch is strong, smooth, and flawlessly reliable.
