Feel free to contact us about building your Original.
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.
SlideTrack: This patented feature allows near infinite adjustment of lateral placement for mounted toms, enabling the player to position drums to best suit any needs.
PocketHinge: 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.
Studded Gaskets: Patented studded lug gaskets remove any metal-to-wood contact allowing the drum to resonate more freely, delivering optimum sonic performance in all environments.
Articulated Claw Hook: Virtually eliminates the need to disassemble claw hooks and tension rods from bass drums when changing heads. The Articulated Claw Hook is designed to isolate the claw from the wood hoop, preventing unwanted tonal interference in live or studio applications.
SideLatch: 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.
Suspension Rings: An industry standard, SuspensionRings allow mounted toms to float freely, providing optimum tone and resonance.
Springflex Spurs: Taye's unique SP90 bass drum spurs not only improve bass drum resonance, the sleek design enables the player to easily position stands in and around the bass drum. Retractable spikes eliminate bass drum movement.
