Kumo Taiko is in partnership with Studio Takumi. All drums and equipments are proudly produced here in New Zealand. 
If you are interested in purchasing any of the drums or equipments we use please contact Studio Takumi.


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 (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.


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.


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 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.
