I play and perform Japanese Kumidaiko, taiko ensemble drumming in CA and have been teaching students taiko drumming in my class and at my school for 3 years now. These new pipe drums, designed by UK taiko players, made of sturdy corrugated pipe, heavy duty tarp heads and secured with slick white polyester roping sound and feel more like the authentic wooden-barrel taiko drums that cost hundreds of dollars. Our current set of 20 garbage can drums have outgrown their usefulness, and we're ready to move up to the next level! While my students absolutely love to learn traditional taiko songs, often adding their own cultural expression to each song, they would sound so much more awesome on these pipe drums. My performing group has been developing their rhythmic and group listening skills, while team building across grade levels. Some are branching out into other musical instrument lessons because of the joy they experience in taiko! Having (close to) real taiko sounding drums will give my students a feel for authentic drums, a polished look in performances, encourage younger students, and make our school proud to have an accomplished drum ensemble.
