Default Taye ???? Help ID..

I just acquired this kit.. can anyone tell me what series they are and what wood the shells are made of? I can tell you that they sound great! I am really liking these drums... plus they really didn't cost me much.. I am thinking of flippin' them, but now I don't know..

Nice looking kit!
I like the finish and the color.
I like the tom mount.
I like the lugs too.

Looks like a keeper to me!

I don't see to many Taye kits so I can't help you with any info.
I just liked the looks of the kit so I was compelled to comment.

I would guess that it is a Rock Pro Birch/Basswood or Poplar.

I'm guessing Rock Pro. The ProX has a rectangular badge. Go to www.tayedrums.com for a product search

The Rock Pro are made of Poplar. Looking at the site now I don't see any round badges so I'm guessing they are a few years old...

You can email them, Taye, and I'm sure they can tell you. Their customer service is fantastic.

My Pro X set was Birch/Basswood and sounded fine to me. I would buy Taye again without fear. Glad I could help.
Did you put the Kickport on the bass or was it already there? And how does it sound>?

I put the kick port in.. I had it as an extra. The kick sounds amazing! it's an older school 16x22" ... seems Taye favors the shallower kick shells. I just may end up keeping this kit!
I am impressed. This is the first Taye kit I have ever played. I got the thing for next to nothing and it cleaned up pretty nicely.. I have the matching 13" rack tom, but I prolly won't put that in the set up.

I really like the shallow bass drums.
I don't get all of these 18 and 20 inch deep drums.

I also like the tone of poplar.
Poplar is a great sounding wood for low volume play.
I prefer my poplar kit for small room low volume gigs.
Poplar often gets an unfair bad rap as a drum shell wood.
It finishes and takes stain well also.

I like the shallower kick shell as well.. As far as shell layup for this kit..It looks to be a hybrid from a cross section view.. The innner ply looks to have a discernible grain..which leads me to think that this is not a 100% poplar shell..?
I sent Taye customer service a few pix of the drums and a request for info.. I guess I will find out soon.

Received a response from Taye today.. I am pleasantly surprised!
here's a copy of the response to what series and wood my kit was made from..

Thanks for contacting us.

What you have is actually a discontinued line called TourPerformer which was replaced by TourPro.

TourPerformer:
Shells: Blend of Mahogany and White Bass
Finish: Alpine Green Laminate Finish
Year of Manufacture: ~2004
Configuration: Looks to me like you've got 22x16 Bass, 13x10 Rack Tom, 16x16 Floor Tom

Your kit is in great condition! Let us know if you have anymore questions.

Thanks!

Best Regards,
