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.
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...

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!!
These two nagado taiko drums are A W E S O M E !!! Thanks for the stands as they are a good solid bit of support for the jo, oops, nagado. Again, good work and beauty.
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 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.
Just wanted to let you know we received the Shime Daikos yesterday....they are amazing! Beautiful work!

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!
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.
THANKS FOR QUICK SHIPPING (of the 24" x 24" okedo daiko.) I LOVE THE DRUM.
