Hirado O-taiko (Flat-bodied Big Drum)
This instrument gives out brighter sounds than the full-bodied O-taiko because of its shallow body. A colorful variety of sounds can be obtained by using different Bachi sticks. Leonard Eto invented the method of using a long Bachi stick. He also devised a revolutionary style of playing this O-taiko when he was composing “ZOKU” (1989), and that is to place the taiko in a slanted angle on tree stumps. The style has won much popularity ever since.
