Done! Just need some real Bachi to practice with!

Taiko drumming is awesome! It is also expensive to get into if you are using authentic equipment! To get going without breaking the bank I made a practice drum out of a 5 gallon bucket – as feature on HiddenNinjaTaiko.Ninja! Here’s how:


  • A 5 gallon bucket
  • Packing tape
  • Duct tape
  • 2 paper plates
  • Some rags (4 or 5)
  • zip ties
  • scissors
  • rope (optional)
