Diako Construction Marathon Begins


So about 4 years ago the girls and I decided it was time to upgrade from our hodgepodge practice drums to real taiko drums. Well, it didn't take long for us to realize that purchasing new drums was simply not going to be an option, given that a typical daiko runs from $2,000-$10,000. So we decided we'd just have to get a little more creative, and build our own. Obviously that proved to be more of a challenge than we ever imangined. Thus we began our seemingly endless journey to build 5 aunthentic chu'daiko (mid-sized) drums. This blog chronicals that journey, Hope you get a few kicks out of our construction trivails, and maybe even pick up some tips from our mistakes ;)
