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!
Received our chu-daiko (nagado daiko) Friday afternoon. We debut the drum during our Obon Festival. The drum is really great!!! It was so well tuned that its loud beat made me deaf and I couldn\'t here my Sensei playing and I was off beat for most of a 4 minute song. This drum had a distinct, loud and clean sound!!
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!
VERY pleased to let you know that my drums have arrived..... I am seriously overwhelmed at how beatiful they are and can't wait to get them on their stands to play.... Perfect timing as I have rehearsal tonight and can give them a proper try out.
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.
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.
Thanks again for all your hard work and fine craftsmanship. The drums arrived safely (chu daiko) and we\'re all excited by the arrival! All the best! Cheers.
Everything arrived yesterday and beautiful work beyond expectation! Wishing you a happy and prosperous 2014!
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.
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.
