Just wanted to let you know we received the Shime Daikos yesterday....they are amazing! Beautiful work!
Ed S. – Director of Bands
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?!
...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)”
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.
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.
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!
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.
Thank you. My taiko came today, it is very nice -- thank you so much.
My customized 24"x24" okedo just arrived, I love it thank you very much.
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.
