TAYE STUDIO MAPLE
16X13" RACK TOM
100% Hand - Selected North American Sugar Maple
Taye StudioMaple represents the definitive product of years of percussion craftsmanship and experience. Start with hand selected North American Sugar Maple.
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. StudioMaple shells are designed in varying thicknesses to highlight the inherent tone of this wood; high toms are crafted to produce great attack, while larger toms and bass drums have been engineered to emphasize the lower fundamentals.
The result is a drum that will deliver a warm sound with sharp attack and warm decay that is perfect for any musical performance application.

|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.
|SideLatch™ Snare Release: 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.
SuspensionRings™: An industry standard, SuspensionRings™ allow mounted toms to float freely, providing optimum tone and resonance.
SlideTrack™ Tom Holder System: 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™ Bracket: 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.
|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 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.
Modular TC91/92 Tom Clamps: All configurations are equipped with either TC91 or TC92 tom clamps. Clamps are modular in design, will accept a wide range of tube diameters, and can be converted to single or double format.
SpringFlex Bass Drum 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.
