Taiko is a traditional Japanese drum with an unusual sound. Thanks to Roland company, it now has an electronic "brother".
With the Olympics-2020 being held soon in Tokyo, interest in Japanese culture has increased. The famous musical instruments manufacturer Roland did not ignore this country too. Inspired by the sound and design of traditional Japanese drums, experts have created the Taiko-1 electronic drum.
The drum has two 14-inch work surfaces and a hidden electronic module, providing rich sound to the instrument. The musician has at their disposal more than 2 dozen "original" effects and they also can import third-party 16-bit / 44.1 kHz samples.
To make it convenient, the drum was equipped with a 128 x 64 pixel display, as well as a number of ports for headphones and other devices. The device runs on eight AA batteries or through the built-in adapter. Taiko-1 can be purchased in July at a price of $1.500.
