The den-den daiko is a Japanese pellet drum. It has two heads and is suspended on a rod, with beads or pellets hanging on threads on either sides of the body of the drum. The drum sounds when it is turned on its axis from side to side, causing the beads to strike the heads of the drum.

The drum is found in other cultures as well, including, but not limited to Tibet, Mongolia, India, China, Taiwan and Korea. It is often used in religious ritual, but it is often sold as a children's toy or as a noisemaker at festival stalls.

The drum played a central role in the movie The Karate Kid, Part II.
