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 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.
My customized 24"x24" okedo just arrived, I love it thank you very much.
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 wanted to say I received my drum in good order. I am really blown away and it was well worth the wait..... I was super excited to hear how rich the timbre this drum produces. Our group is super thrilled as well! Our group and more importantly me want to thank you and your team for the work put into this! I will be back when I need to get a katsugi daiko and shime next :) Cheers and again awesome job...

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.
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.
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.
...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)”
