Ohira-daiko

Ohira daiko (big flat drum) is the largest drum in the hirado daiko family. It produces a deep, thunder-like sound that will vibrate through your whole body.

Nagado-daiko

Nagado daiko (long body drum) is the most popular kind of taiko.  It is sometimes called chu daiko (middle sized drum) among taiko players. It is played in various positions and styles.

Hira-daiko

Appropriately named after its short and flat body, Hira Daiko ("flat drum") is manufactured in the same way as Nagado-daiko.  When compared to a Nagado-daiko of the same diameter, a Hira Daiko produces a lighter and higher sound.

Shime-daiko

The shime-taiko is a small Japanese drum. It has a short but wide body with higher pitch than other taiko drums making it ideal for keeping time.

Bachi

Bachi are the drumsticks used for playing taiko.  Taiko bachi are made in a wide variety of sizes and materials, as appropriate to the drum which they will be used to play.
