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.
Greetings, My husband and I were blessed with a gorgeous hira daiko and matching shime for Christmas. Thank you so much for the beautiful work! The giver, my mom, was quite anxious buying online but the drum is beautiful and we were so elated that she had a great buying experience.
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!
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!!
VERY pleased to let you know that my drums have arrived..... I am seriously overwhelmed at how beatiful they are and can't wait to get them on their stands to play.... Perfect timing as I have rehearsal tonight and can give them a proper try out.
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?!
Great shime daiko, great quality and workmenship, my husband loves it.
The Shime-daikos are beautiful. Thank you very much.
The Shime arrived yesterday...safe and sound. It\'s so beautiful. Thank you. I\'m deeply grateful to have such a lovely drum gracing my life. Thank YOU. Practice has taken on a whole new allure and joy. THANK YOU!
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!
Carla & Jesse (aka Taikos.com) Thanks so much for delivering all the taiko drums yesterday! (to the university of northern Iowa) We are all excited and impressed with their beauty and sound! Even the non-percussionists are awed!
Everything arrived yesterday and beautiful work beyond expectation!
Wishing you a happy and prosperous 2014!
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.
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...
