TaikoMom Bachi Bags

Inspired and encouraged by her taiko sons, TaikoMom Teri Hirota creates custom-made bachi bags that are practical, personal, and fun. Select a fabric from TaikoMom’s taiko-themed collection or arrange to send her your own fabric. Then work with her to ensure that your bachi and belongings will move in style from home to practice to gigs and back again in their own TaikoMom Bachi Bag.

For the taiko community at-large Taiko With Toni is Toni Yagami working her magic to protect our instruments.

Toni’s bags can be customized for any size taiko with pockets,  handles and holders to order.
