The club’s taiko drum heads seemed to have lost a bit of their tone over the years and we thought it was time to tighten it up! We were able to get local taiko guru Doug Masuhara to assist us (with equipment borrowed from Chibi Taiko). I couldn’t believe how much tension these drums and skins go through! We really depended on Doug’s expertise for this job. The improvement of the drum’s tone was like night and day. We hope to arrange another day to tighten the other side as well! We look forward to playing the taiko in our future kempo events!
