Production of taiko drums in Shimotsuke started during the latter half of the Edo Period, which lasted from 1600–1868.
The optimal materials for making taiko (wadaiko) drums are Japanese zelkova wood and leather from Japanese brown cows.
These wadaiko boast lovely wood-grain patterns, excellent sound quality, leather material that resists loosening through use, and a reddish-brown coloring.
