Roland New Electronic Japanese Drums for Various Types of Drumming

Electronic Japanese drums that can be played on a wide variety of drums

The TAIKO-1 is the world's first electronic wadaiko drum in the "carrier tub" style. Not only the sound of Okedo taiko, but also various types of taiko such as long taiko and shimedaiko can be played with this one unit. As with the wide range of expressiveness of the wata∂∂, each sound varies depending on the strength and position of the tapping. You can also use your own naves to create your own sounds, which opens up new possibilities for musical expression depending on your ideas.

The three-layer mesh head on the surface provides a natural tapping experience and a high level of quietness. The built-in metronome and "ground beat" allow you to practice in the comfort of your own home. Battery-powered and portable, it can be disassembled and taken anywhere you want to enjoy playing the tai zhuang.
