I asked Jason about creating a drum that matched the look of my kit, and provides a deep, resonant boom that could approximate an Odaiko/Taiko drum sound in my acoustic kit, without the weight, space and expense of the real thing. We discussed shell diameter, thickness and depth, kit placement, and heads selection to arrive at the design that made most sense.
The result is beautiful, fits perfectly in the kit, and sounds SO DARNED GOOD! In my big acoustic kit (22 pieces), all made by TreeHouse, this beast of a drum is my current favorite. It allows me to add a massive bottom end to some arrangements, add taiko-like elements to others, or just create a brooding tonal atmosphere. So much fun!!!!
