    Comments about Taye Drums Specialty Aluminum Snare with Natural Wood Hoops:

    This snare is good! It sounds nicer than my 1969 Supraphonic which is one of my favorite snares. Extremely versatile, takes practically any tuning. The wood hoops go very well with the aluminium shell - it makes a warm sound combination - cuts through but does not pierce your ears.

    Very solid construction. I was wondering about the snare butt looking like the least 'solid' element, but it does not seem to give in at high snares tensions.

    I got used to hit the rim shots on the wood between the metal clamps.

    Interestingly, the Dynatone drum heads are a positive surprise - they are better made than the Remo - no kidding. Lately I had to return several brand new Remo heads because the aluminium rim on them was not aligned. These Dynatones have perfectly well aligned rims and the rims are coated white which makes them look nice with the wood rims.

    I think this snare is going to be a classic! I hope Taye won't "improve" it as it sounds good as it is.

    BTW, if you wonder, I do not work for Taye I just like this particular snare drum - I have 14 snare drums (yes, fourteen, I just counted them - I know, I shoould be selling snares, not buying..), and this snare is near the top and competes with some very high end drums stuff I happen to play - the studio engineers like it a lot as well...
