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.
...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)”
THANKS FOR QUICK SHIPPING (of the 24" x 24" okedo daiko.) I LOVE THE DRUM.
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?!
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 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.
It has really been a pleasure doing business with you. You really go the extra mile for customer satisfaction. Please feel free to use me as a reference for other potential customers. I hope to do business with you again.
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!
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.
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!!
