Hey, West from Taye Drums here.  I’m new so you guys may have seen this already.

Hit us back!

Save your pennies!!!!

September 2, 2008

The drum that started it all for Taye is happy to introduce the new Brushed Copper finish.  Combining professional features with student pricing, there is no drumset that equals the Rock Pro line from Taye Drums.  In 2008, Taye released this flashy new wrap to reflect what all rockstars need.  You can get the Rock Pro in almost ANY configuration and now you can make the photographers turn off their camera flash!!!  Because all the flash will be on the stage in front of you!

Starting at just $1249 retail for a 5 piece kit with hardware (Hardware Pack Z shown).

There were no pennies harmed in the making of this drum set
