Nagado Daiko

This is a barrel-shaped drum and is basically made of one piece of wood. In the past, the beautiful wood species Zelkova or Keyaki was used, among others. For environmental reasons, nowadays more common glued wood is also used. These very expensive drums are strung with ox skins by means of metal rivets, which makes it difficult to adjust the tension. Such a medium-sized drum easily weighs 85 kg.
