Keep beboppin' along with Taye's Studio Maple Traditional BeBop sizes.
Taye Drums' Studio Maple line is already known for moving when you move, responding to every touch of the drum. Now, Taye Drums allows you to do it with this 4-Piece BeBop configuration. With the looks and sounds of yesteryear, take advantage of the Studio Maple's solid drum shell design with 6 alternating vertical and horizontal plies of 100% North American Sugar Maple.
The shells are thin and resonant, as well as rigid and durable. Made from fine Maple veneers, cross laminated and molded using state of the art techniques. Everything from the bearing edge to the suspension mounts conspires to make Taye StudioMaple drums one of the world's finest instruments.
Taye StudioMaple drums beg to be played; the snare drums sizzle, toms open up with defined pitches and bass drums provide the last word in attack, body, and shuddering sub-lows. You will enjoy the smooth sound and traditional look of a 12" x 8" rack tom, 14" x 14" floor tom, 18" x 14" bass drum with a matching 14" x 5" snare drum.

Comments about Taye Drums StudioMaple SM418BP 4-Piece Shell Pack:
Overall I'm happy with my decision to give Taye a try as I have always owned either Tama, DW, Gretsch or Roland. Time will tell me more but so far so good.
I am imprressed the features of my new Maple Studio Maple set. The hardware is beautiful as is the finish and the tom mount works great with the kick and tom shells. Rim suspension is very good as well. Suggestions I would make: Put rubberf gaskets on the kick drum hardware to protect the wood finish...and I would redesign the kick drum legs to make them straight angle legs that don't threaten the kick drum finsih when folding.
I am impressed with the quality of the Studio Maple drums. I tested their acoustic quality and checked them over physically before converting them to trigger, mesh electronics with a Roland TD20 module. I was able to downsize my set considerably for ease of transport and set up and with my triggers I have the same great sound I had on my larger set.
