Natural sound with warm overtones and midrange punch.

The Taye StudioBirch Wood Hoop Snare Drum features a 100% premium-selected 7-ply birch shell with 14-ply genuine North American sugar maple hoops. This combined with Taye Drums' patented EFS (Engineered for Sound) shell technology provides you with a snare that has attack, warmth, and a full tuning range.

The Taye wood hoops consist of 14-ply genuine North American Sugar Maple using proprietary construction under high pressure and precisely controlled temperature to ensure its strength and integrity. Each Wood Hoop is handcrafted with 10-degree top bevel for optimal stick contact on cross stick or rim shot, 45-degree internal chamfer for optimal drum head seating, and internal channel that captures drum head flesh hoop for proper alignment.

The resonating effect of the 14-ply Wood Hoop is further balanced by the specially engineered articulated claws with resonance control spacers.

The result is a snare drum that is as stunningly beautiful in appearance as the sound it projects with every stick contact. Whether it's a rim shot, cross stick, drum roll or single stroke, you will be impressed with unparalleled performance of this world-class drum.

Taye Drums StudioBirch Wood Hoop Snare Drum Features:

  • 7-ply birch shell
    EFS shell technology
    14-ply maple hoops
    Claws with resonance control spacers

  • Looks better than it is

    As reviewed by Michael Solis on 1/8/2014

    When I bought this drum online, I judged a book by its cover because it looks really good. It also sounds good, though nothing really special. Here's my concern though. The price of this drum is WAY too high for the quality of its build. The one I received shows signs that they aren't really manufactured to justify their expensive price. The chrome is a lower, more dull grade and the metal it plates feels thin when thumped with the fingernail. The throw off mechanism is a rattly, horrible design, making it tedious to tighten the straps that connect the snares. Also, I've had to tighten too many screws on this drum, which for me is a first for a drum purchase and a lower quality indicator. Finally, mine had some imperfections in the bearing edge that I've only seen in discount drums. As I ran my finger around it, part of it was rough and not fully sanded and on another part of the edge, there was a little hump. Despite all this, the drum isn't bad, but its not nearly worth the price that Taye is getting for it.

  • Claw Lugs

    As reviewed by Steve Crabtree on 4/25/2011

    I wanted a vintage looking brand new snare, I respect the beauty & warm sound of this drum. Brushes, Sticks, Side Sticks, Mallets bring out the tone. One of my favorites!
