Elvin Jones’ Signed Yamaha “75th Birthday” Snare
On September 9th, 2002, The Yamaha drum company held a party in New York city to celebrate Elvin Jone’s 75th birthday and to commemorate his musical accomplishments. The party was attended by scores of the biggest names in the music business. Yamaha made a very small number of these 10×5″ maple shell snare drums in Elvin’s signature Champagne sparkle lacquer finish for a few of his most honored guests. These drums were never available to the public. Elvin saved this particular drum for his personal collection. The drum is signed by Elvin on the inside of the shell. This is one of extremely few items in the Elvin Jones collection that are signed. Includes the original Yamaha shipping box addressed to MR. ELVIN JONES.
