Our drum arrived safely today (and so did our other member's surprise drum, that their mom ordered for Christmas). It looks and sounds wonderful. Thanks to everyone who worked on it!
Great shime daiko, great quality and workmenship, my husband loves it.
I cannot tell you sufficiently how magnificent and sonorous the drum is, and how much we appreciate it. The drum and stand are much larger than I\'d anticipated. Seeing them in person is astonishing. I\'ve been admiring the structure of our Hira Daiko drum today. The wooden body has lovely woodgrain, and is absolutely perfectly aligned, all the way around the circumference of the drum. I can't even see any delineation between one piece of wood and the next piece. How on earth did you do that?!
Just wanted to say I received my drum in good order. I am really blown away and it was well worth the wait..... I was super excited to hear how rich the timbre this drum produces. Our group is super thrilled as well!
Our group and more importantly me want to thank you and your team for the work put into this! I will be back when I need to get a katsugi daiko and shime next 🙂
Cheers and again awesome job...
Thank you. My taiko came today, it is very nice -- thank you so much.
THANKS FOR QUICK SHIPPING (of the 24" x 24" okedo daiko.) I LOVE THE DRUM.
Just want to let you know I really love my new shime. Learned how to retighten ropes and I'm practicing every day with it. Thank very much. Mahalo & Aloha.
I'm happy with the Shime-daiko heads I purchased early this year. They are perfectly crafted, dimensions just according to my requirements, sound good and look beautiful. I received similar comments from friends who are owning Shime-daiko from Asano and Miyamoto.
The okedo arrived last week to me in Finland. I was worried about it traveling such a long distance, but it arrived in perfect condition. The shell has beautiful grain and the heads are so thick it produces a very deep tone.
The three bolt tuned shime daiko have arrived and they are spectacular! Thank you for your quality work. If we can be of help in recommending taikos.com, please let us know.
Received our chu-daiko (nagado daiko) Friday afternoon. We debut the drum during our Obon Festival. The drum is really great!!! It was so well tuned that its loud beat made me deaf and I couldn\'t here my Sensei playing and I was off beat for most of a 4 minute song. This drum had a distinct, loud and clean sound!!
Yesterday I finally had a chance to assemble and tune the Shime with your heads and play it for an hour. Since the heads are pretuned to a high pitch already it was easy work. The sound is incredible, very loud and cutting but with a nice clear tone. And the look is just great. Good work! I will recommend your quality to others. The poplar bachi also feel good. They are the lightest and also shortest I have which makes them especially suitable for fast playing. I also like the rounded tip.
Aloha - I received my new taiko drum about a week ago. I am so happy with it! I think it's the most beautiful thing I own, along with my hula pahu drum. Thank you so very much I absolutely love it!
This is a beautiful and nice sounding taiko - its unlike anything in my collection Im so enjoying showing it off and playing it. The wood finish is amazing. I think I will need more...
We ordered a pair of 48" okedo daiko heads last year and we finally finished our drum earlier this year. It sounds and looks good after hours and hours of hard work!
