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?!
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.
The Shime arrived yesterday...safe and sound. It\'s so beautiful. Thank you. I\'m deeply grateful to have such a lovely drum gracing my life. Thank YOU. Practice has taken on a whole new allure and joy. THANK YOU!
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!
