...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)”
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...
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.
Everything arrived yesterday and beautiful work beyond expectation! Wishing you a happy and prosperous 2014!
Just wanted to let you know we received the Shime Daikos yesterday....they are amazing! Beautiful 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.
The drums (nagado daiko) are beautiful and sound awesome. Thank you! You may have additional customers once we show them off to the others in our drum class.
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.
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.
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?!
