The Taye MetalWorks Snare Drum Series is dedicated to the production of high quality metal shell snare drums at competitive prices - offering unsurpassed value and the best choice of metal snare drums currently on the market.

By utilizing popular materials and unique finishes we create great sounding and visually stimulating instruments. Whether your choice is heavy gauge brass, stainless steel, or our 6mm cold hammered aluminum alloy shell, you are sure to find exceptional tonality and the attack and articulation that you seek in a metal drum.

To top them off, we employ unique hardware applications such as our original 14ply North American Sugar Maple hoops, articulated claw hooks, and vintage-style tube lugs, separating these drums from the rest of the pack.






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.

14ply Sugar Maple Hoops:
14 plies of North American Sugar Maple are layered to provide an extremely rigid and durable wood hoop. Sonically, wood hoops provide warm and rich overtones, and a full and natural sidestick. Available in your choice of Black or Natural high gloss lacquer finishes.

Studded Gakets:
Patented studded lug gaskets remove any metal-to-wood contact allowing the drum to resonate more freely, delivering optimum sonic performance in all environments.
