This drum is really something special… I’m serious, just look at the title! Taye’s 14” x 7” Specialty Hybrid Walnut/Maple Snare is a unique drum that is sure to put a smile on any drummers face. This 10-ply shell is a true work of art. With two outer and inner plies of Walnut and 6-ply maple core this drum is perfect for any scenario. The maple helps give this drum a warm, full-bodied sound that’s extremely loud and resonant while also having an extremely vast tuning range. This allows the drum to sound good pitched low, cranked real tight, and everywhere in between. Walnut on the other hand is a much more complex wood; it has a darker overall fundamental and is extremely sensitive. This helps make ghost notes, and lighter playing soft yet pronounced. By combining these two woods into one sleek, elegant looking shell, Taye gives you a drum that sounds perfect in any dynamic range and at any tuning. This drum also includes 6-ply North American Sugar Maple Reinforcement Hoops. Reinforcement hoops interrupt the natural vibrations of the shell, helping focus in its sound. The combination of the reinforcement hoops and natural walnut finish give this drum a classy, timeless look. It really is a modern-vintage drum.

Comments about Taye 14" x 7" Specialty Hybrid Walnut/Maple Snare Drum:
I just played it for five minutes and it was apparent that this is a special drum that you really don't want to dampen because it sounds so sweet. You CAN but you really shouldn't.
The bottom lugs were so loose they were almost falling off. I am not into tuning drums all day. I tightened the bottom head pretty tight. Adjusted the strainer. Tensioned the top head a bit looser than the bottom. (No Remo Ambassador head but this head sounded comparable).
SWEET! It is ready to go. I can fool with it more later but I got what I expected: a sweet, versatile, powerful yet warm drum. Now I am going to look into Taye sets. If they sound as good as this drum I will very very happy.
