The art of Japanese Taiko drumming is an Endo family tradition. It was only a matter of time before founder, Miles Endo combined this lifelong knowledge of this instrument’s sound with his passion for building. He utilizes both traditional and innovative techniques to build one of a kind instruments, designed for acoustic tone and to last a lifetime. Our drum shell process utilizes the CNC router machine to create an acoustically textured interior. This contemporary construction method is combined with a traditional drum head to create an modern heirloom instrument. Studio Endo has created dozens of Taiko drums for groups throughout North America.
