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.
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!
Everything arrived yesterday and beautiful work beyond expectation! Wishing you a happy and prosperous 2014!
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!
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.
The drums look great, they sounds great and they are just awesome.

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.
Just wanted to let you know we received the Shime Daikos yesterday....they are amazing! Beautiful work!
