Mini Taiko puts the awesome power of Japanese drums into the palm of your hand. Adjust the angle of your finger when hitting the screen to play different sounds, from soft to loud. Each instrument has a center and rim hit, each with multiple samples for a realistic playing experience.

There are two instruments that come standard: a medium taiko and a shime. An additional uchiwa instrument can be purchased in-app, with more awesome drums and percussion instruments to purchase coming soon. Preview sounds on the instrument screen or check out to hear samples of the additional instruments as they become available.

Mini Taiko is the perfect practice companion. There is a built in metronome function that features a shime playing traditional patterns. The metronome's beats per minute and volume can be conveniently adjusted from the main screen.

Ratings and Reviews

Awesome Taiko !!!!!


This app is really cool. The taiko sounds are realistic and I really like how you can play soft to loud sounds. The metronome is awesome. It plays your usual shime patterns and is really helping me work on my solos and song ideas (when I'm not near an actual taiko...). Just get it!

The Taiko App You're Looking For!


Took me a while to find a good taiko app on the App Store, but this is definitely it! The sounds are great and the metronome function is very helpful. Works on my iPhone 6S.

Well done!!!!!!!!!!


I love this!!! Hope to see more updates.
