About the Neiro Series
Amazing craftsmanship and a beautiful tone are the hallmarks of Miyamoto Unosuke Shoten’s Neiro Series. The Neiro Series is made with the needs of the taiko professional in mind. Each drum body is carved from a single piece of keyaki, the highest quality and most sought after wood for taiko. The drum bodies are air dried for 3 to 5 years then lathe turned to perfection. The skins are of the highest quality and minimally processed (no chemicals used at Miyamoto according to Asano-san) to preserve a warm tone and natural color. The new all-in-one kan are designed to be beautiful, functional and lighter weight than traditional kan in order to minimize the weight of the taiko without sacrificing the quality of sound, and to prevent the rattling noise over years of use.
