Everything arrived yesterday and beautiful work beyond expectation! Wishing you a happy and prosperous 2014!
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.
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.
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?!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
