 taipan snake venoms and snakebites
Taipan snake venom also contains potent procoagulants (toxins in venom that interfere with blood clotting, causing consumption of the clotting protein, fibrinogen; this causes defibrination, with non-clottable blood, putting victims at risk of major bleeding).
Taipan snake venom does contain myotoxins that cause myolysis (rhabdomyolysis, muscle damage), but this effect is not common and generally not very severe.
Taipan snake venom causes generally minor local effects at the snakebite site, such as mild swelling, bruising and pain and does not contain necrotoxins.

 CSL Antivenom Handbook - Taipan Antivenom
The taipans are, at least in theory, amongst the most deadly snakes in the world, combining very potent venom, large amounts of venom and long fangs with accurate strike.
Because of their reputation, both taipans are much sought after by reptile collectors, and a considerable number of these snakes are kept alive in both public and private collections in capital cities and some rural towns, thus bites may present well outside of the natural range for these snakes.
Nearly all taipan bites are likely to result in life threatening envenoming, with the exception of bites by juveniles in captivity, where current experience suggests that the rate of major bites may be lower.

 The Coastal Taipan In Captivity
Coastal Taipans, Oxyuranus scutellatus, are large elapids from Australia, Irian Jaya and Papua New Guinea.
Taipans are the only snake that I have seen to actually know who its owner is. I handle the snakes without a problem and they are very calm and relaxed around me. When another person is in the room the snakes become far more nervous and jumpy.
Taipans are just simply too fast and flighty to keep together, especially at feeding time.

The inland taipan is deadly and, drop-for-drop, produces the most lethal poison of any snake in the world.
Those unlucky enough to have a taipan sink its 12 millimetre fangs into their skin are injected with an extremely nasty chemical cocktail.
Unlike most snakes, the taipan is a specialist mammal hunter so its poison is specially adapted to knock out warm-blooded furry creatures like ourselves.

 Powersnake Anaconda vX and Taipan Power Cords by Todd Warnke
If there is a tonal issue with the Taipan, it is that the apparent speed seems to, on occasion, slightly thin the harmonic overtones in a manner similar to if much lower in scale than that of solid-state amplifiers.
In spite of that my thought was that the Taipan would add a touch to the dynamics and so would be the better fit, and while it did, it also seemed to thin out the tonal palette of the Zanden while the vX offered me all gain.
The Taipan gave nearly the same level of performance, but with a slight thinning of harmonics and a concomitant emphasis on the treble.
