Taye TourPro Graphix Skulls toms are definitely the toms for you if you want to make a statement! Taye made sure to catch every terrifying detail. Taye Graphix drums are produced with high quality, one-of-a-kind graphics and are issued in very limited quantities. The Skull toms feature Taye's TourPro 8-ply 7mm EFS custom birch/basswood.
These tom drums mix the right woods to harness the best of both worlds. For the TourPro drums, Taye started with basswood, which was an integral component in the sound of those revered drums of forties through the sixties. A softer wood than maple, its open grain structure diffuses the sound somewhat, warming it. Then Taye added birch, a wood with maple-like density, to the formula. What basswood spreads out, birch tightens up. The result is centered attack with a pronounced roundness and complex overtones”very much a vintage vibe. It's a sound some say was lost and is now reclaimed in the Taye TourPro series, which are finished using the same lacquering process as Taye's StudioMaple.
