We love good news that comes in pairs.
First, Taye Drums is adding Daytona Sunset finish to its GoKit line for 2012. This irresistible head-turning color offers a timeless visual zing whether you’re playing a retro-hip lounge gig, or surrendering to a spontaneous urge during the commute to stop the car, pull the diminutive kit out of the hatch, and start shedding.
Second, the company is now offering an odd-size 14" x 11" floor tom, which will come in handy on those bomba-inflected jazz breakdowns. Comes on super-tall legs so you can reach it in comfort and still get the benefit of a shallow tom. Made from the same birch/basswood shell as the rest of the GoKit line.
The kit and add-on drum are also available in Antique Honey and White Pearl in addition to Daytona Sunset. $399.
