Default i FINALLY bought new drums!

hey guys, here are a few pics of my brand new taye pro x bop kit.
18" x 14" bass drum
12" x 9" rack tom
14" x 14" floor tom
13" x 5" snare

they're made of a combination of birch and basswood and sound great. i still haven't bought new heads but i'm probably going to put remo renaissance heads on as soon as i have some money. i'm broke at the moment. haha.
taye reallly makes good stuff. i tried out so many drums in the store, but for the price, nothing comes close to this kit. really. $700 including hardware.
other kits i was considering were the sonor jungle kit and yamaha hip gig. i just had to go with this kit. i just have to get two more cymbal stands and that's it!
oh, and i apologise for the pictures, but i was in a tiny little practice room with barely enough room for me to even be in there at all. heh.

No worry, the pics are cool!
...ah yeah baby...and those cymbals, too!!! What Zildjians do you play on that kit?? Is that a 20" Dry Light Ride on the left? They look really stunning!

but unfortunatly I know nothing about the Pro x bop kit... :-(

As an owner of a Taye ProX kit I'm sure you will be very happy. Have fun with the new kit.

thanks guys,
the dirty looking cymbal is a kcustom dry light and the other one is a kcustom dry complex. the hats are k light prototypes.
i'm actually trying to decide whether i should keep the dry light or sell it. either way, i will be buying a k.con very soon.

Its very cool! i like simple lil 4 pieces with crazy sweet ks. i wish my band called for more musical cymbals, but i guess I'm sol

Taye drums are very very cool. I find is very hard to find them for sale anywhere. i require a site that sells individual drums.

How does the kick sound? Did it come with a riser? I recently bought a Gretsch Catalina jazz kit, and the kick sounds great. It came with an Evans e-mad as well as a drum riser.Your Taye kit looks great, nice finish.

hey guys. i bought these at 'ADrums', a local store here in Boston, a block away from Berklee. Actually, its quite possible to order individual drums.... basically custom kits for really really cheap. its ridiculous. you can order whatever you want from the store, and they'll have the drums in a few weeks. taye is great that way.
also, i think i've seen taye kits on musiciansfriend and music123.com.
you just have to search. try www.tayedrums.com to look for dealers.
many people don't know this, but taye is owned by ray ayotte, founder of ayotte drums. so he's now making drums under a new brand because he left ayotte drums. i think it won't be long before they hike the prizes up on the taye sets.... right now they're just trying to compete with the other brands so they can get more popular.

it sounds great, but i definitely need to get new heads. it didn't come with a riser, but i could probably buy one... i honestly don't feel the need for one though. if it was a 16" bass drum, i'd insist on getting one free with the kit, but i've used 18" bass drums without risers before. just lower the beater a little, i know it gets harder to play that way, but i enjoy doing stupid things likke that. hehe.

Dood.
Jammin on that kit must be fun.
I'm assuming you play a jazzy style?
Love the finish :-)
Nice, classy look.
