Taiko Bachi Explained

We are excited to announce the release of our ‘Taiko Bachi Explained’ video! I get a lot of questions about bachi and it occurred to me that I should just make an ‘everything you ever wanted to know about taiko bachi’ video. In this video I start with the three main types of wood bachi are made out of, explain how to match a pair of bachi and how to pay attention to the grain of the wood then go through all the major categories of bachi. I’ve also included a list of contents so you can skip to a particular question you might have about a specific type of bachi. Enjoy the video!
