Bamboo Nagado (NEW)

Bamboo-Nagado1 Bamboo is a domestic plant everywhere in Asia, particularly in China. Asia has very long tradition in the production of musical instruments made out, such as, the wonderful bamboo Shakuhachi and Shinobue flutes. Bamboo is a wonderful resource as a result of its special processing. This makes it harder than most types of wood and now for the first time it has been used in Taiko construction. The bamboo stem is cut into narrow strips that are glued together after drying under high pressure and made into thick bamboo plates. The wall thickness of the finished massive Taiko body is approx. 2.5cm. We are very excited that KAISER DRUMS ® can now also offer Taiko drums made out of this outstanding resource. Exclusively in Europe.

 

Dimensions: Head – 42cm. Height – 52cm. Body – 52cm.

Dimensions: Head – 48cm. Height – 60cm. Body – 60cm.

 


Classic Nagado

Miya-Daiko-Classic-Kaiser-Drums A classic nagado consists of a barrel-shaped hollow drum body and hides nailed directly on to the body on both sides. The body of the classic nagado consists of individual staves sawn from solid larch wood, dried and glued to one another. The body is stained reddish brown and shows the beautiful natural grain of the wood. The final transparent coat of gloss varnish lends the drum its classy touch and provides additional protection. Water-buffalo hide attached with a double row of nails. Two solid ornate handles make it easier to carry.

 

Dimensions: Head – 48cm. Height – 60cm. Body – 60cm.


High-Quality Nagado

Miya-Daiko-High-Quality-Kaiser-Drums. The high-quality nagados come in three sizes. Traditional tensioning lends the Taiko its typical Japanese look and makes it possible to re-tension the cowhide nailed on both sides. The drum is made of individual staves of ash, which keeps it shape well. It is stained with the signature reddish brown stain used by KAISER DRUMS and finished with a transparent varnish. Two Japanese handles (KAN) make the Taiko easy to carry. The skin also produces a clear sound for a long time, even with heavy usage.

Premium Nagado
