Mechanically tensioned Taiko via wrench tuning.
The word Taiko literally means "Fat Drum". Stemming from Chinese and Korean ceremonial drums, the Taiko as we see it today can be traced back to Japan as early as the 5th century as court music in Japan's Imperial Palace.
The Pearl Shime Taiko drum is constructed of staved oak, and has a warm yet piercing attack that cuts. It is beautifully finished in a matte natural stain, which shows the rich warmth of the wood, without the expensive price tag of a traditionally carved Taiko. The inside of the drum shells are shaped using a special carving method and have reinforcement rings that are placed to break up the unwanted overtones producing a balanced sonic reflection within the drums. The sound starts on the out side, with a premium cowhide exclusively selected for the Pearl Shime Taiko drums. They are mechanically tensioned via a wrench tuning system.
