平胴太鼓 (ひらどうだいこ)

“flat-drum”, “flat-body drum”; a type of byō-uchi-daiko with the diameter of the heads greater than its body length. Such a structure retains a deep bass tone, but has less resonance or sustain of a chū-daiko or ō-daiko; much lighter and more portable (hence less expensive).

A hiradō-daiko, placed on a stand so it can be played in a manner similar to an ō-daiko
