Nikkodo Karaoke Introduction

Nikkodo Karaoke appears to be part of the NuTech group. But this collection does have its very own label and identity. However, some of the CDG labels show NuTech Ent.

There are a few series by the Nikkodo Karaoke people. But they have since closed their operations and no longer produce karaoke tracks.

All-Star Karaoke eventually bought out the rights, but even that firm stopped production. Be that as it may, Nikkodo is a karaoke label in its own right.

Another point to note in this series is the disc ID numbers (prefixes) that signify the genres. For instance, the ‘A’ series is country music. The ‘P’ series is pop music. But their country music karaoke discs have always been their flagship.

In brief, many people say these country discs are some of the best. But what do you think? Register and tell us your thoughts.

Since Nikkodo does not produce karaoke discs now, the second-hand market is the only place to buy the discs. Indeed, we saw many cheap ones on eBay. However, before you buy, ensure they are in top-notch condition. That is because worn discs can play up badly.

Nikkodo Karaoke Review

SAV7020 Disc.

The Nikkodo Karaoke discs have original styling, but it takes time to get used to them.

On the splash screen are the words BMB Karaoke, but the graphics make that hard to read. The title of the song appears in the middle of the screen. This is big, bold, and colourful, which is perfect for karaoke.

Then, the writers’ names show up at the bottom. However, the font used for that is thin and hard to read for some people. However, if you know the song, this niggle is minor.

That same terrible font is in use for most of their on-screen lyrics. That is a shame because the words sync perfectly with the music. The colour scheme is a blue screen with white wording that turns green as the music progresses. That in itself is a poor colour, indeed! So, together with the poor font, you either like them or hate them.

The choice of backing music also leaves a lot to be desired. They sound like a band playing at an old-aged pensioners club. That might be exaggerating slightly, but you get the drift.

Be that as it may, these discs will be fine for gigging or home use. But only if your collection doesn’t have a better version of the song.

The artwork on the sleeves is bland, but they are acceptable, while the CDGs are run-of-the-mill discs.

Karaoke Song Sample

Although we may use numerous songs for the review, we only provide one sample video to represent the label. So, the song sample for our video presentation is SAV7020-08 – George Michael – Faith.

Our Verdict

  • On-screen Lyrics: 3.5
  • Music Content: 3.5
  • Splash Screen, Graphics, Video: 3.5
  • Cover Art: 3.5
  • Overall Average: 3.5
  • Music And Lyrics Average: 3.5

These CDGs should have a score rating of 3.5, but we can only vote in whole numbers. So, we gave this collection 4 out of 5 in the rating system below. You can also vote for these, even if you don’t have the discs or tracks. Indeed, all you need to do is watch our presentation video above and judge that.

Desirability Factor

Despite the average score, the staff here at the Karaoke Info website like them in a way.

From the samples we tried, the music was fair. However, the on-screen lyrics synced well. The wording could have been a bit bolder, but our verdict is that these discs are worth collecting if their song bank is what you want.

We can’t possibly sample every track on these discs, but this is where you come in and tell us what you think of them. You can do a full review here, leave some comments below, or start a thread in our massive Karaoke Forum.

To Sum Up

There were many karaoke disc releases by the Nikkodo Karaoke organisation. Indeed, the list above is pretty impressive. However, what Karaoke Info staff do is try to help Karaoke collectors pick and choose. You are aiming for the best karaoke discs, of course.

In effect, the only way you can buy the best karaoke discs is to try them out yourself. However, our karaoke reviews will help you enormously. So, we provide a platform for independent reviews.

If you have any discs from the Nikkodo Karaoke collection, we would be grateful if you could help. All in all, by providing information about the quality of the music and on-screen graphics, you are helping future karaoke disc collectors.
