Greetings, Our drum arrived today. It is truly magnificent; both the visual and the tone! What an honor to own one of these exquisite works of art you have created. It will be a central focus on our stage. I will send you pictures and our new CD when it is complete.
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 drums (nagado daiko) are beautiful and sound awesome. Thank you! You may have additional customers once we show them off to the others in our drum class.
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...
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.
These two nagado taiko drums are A W E S O M E !!! Thanks for the stands as they are a good solid bit of support for the jo, oops, nagado. Again, good work and beauty.
Thank you. My taiko came today, it is very nice -- thank you so much.
The Shime-daikos are beautiful. Thank you very much.
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!
We received our shime daiko today, and I must say...WE LOVE IT!!! Thank you so much for a great product. The resonance and clarity of this drum is amazing. We will be in contact with you in the future for 2 more... Definitely worth the short wait to have you make this for us.
...My new setup including 5 new taikos from taikos.com. They are all stellar, but the 800 lb. gorilla in the back is insane. Incredible workmanship and sound. Will post better pictures soon. -Nick Phoenix (Two Steps From Hell)”
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...
