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!
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.
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!
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.
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...
Thank you. My taiko came today, it is very nice -- thank you so much.
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.
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!
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.
Just wanted to let you know we received the Shime Daikos yesterday....they are amazing! Beautiful work!
