We received our shime daiko today, and I must say...WE LOVE IT!!! Thank you so much for a great product. The resonance and clarity of this drum is amazing. We will be in contact with you in the future for 2 more... Definitely worth the short wait to have you make this for us.
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...
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 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.
Greetings, Our drum arrived today. It is truly magnificent; both the visual and the tone! What an honor to own one of these exquisite works of art you have created. It will be a central focus on our stage. I will send you pictures and our new CD when it is complete.
Thank you. My taiko came today, it is very nice -- thank you so much.
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.
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!!
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.
The drums look great, they sounds great and they are just awesome.
