Taye Studio Series represents the definitive product of years of percussion craftsmanship and experience.
Maple has long been known for its unique sonic properties, providing equal frequency response of lows, mids and highs. Sugar Maple is one of the hardest and densest species of the wood, accentuating these attributes.
Featuring a 10ply 7.5mm shell, StudioMaple snares produce superb sensitivity and aggressive attack. Moreover, the durable 14ply Sugar Maple hoops give the drum unmistakeably warm and rich overtones and provide an authentic side stick sound.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
