Elvin Jones, 1990s, Yamaha Maple Custom Drum Set
Yamaha all maple shells in Elvin’s signature Champagne sparkle finish. Includes complete set of Elvin’s stenciled cases and all of the Yamaha hardware in photos. 18×18″ bass with “Elvin Jones Jazz Machine” logo head, signed 14×5 snare, 12×8, 13×9 toms, 16×16, 18×18 floor toms. “ELVIN JONES” is engraved in the badges on the bass and floor toms. Elvin used this set from the mid 1990s until his passing in 2004. The signed snare head was acquired in person by the seller separately from the set.
This set was part of a large collection of Elvin’s drum gear acquired directly from his wife shortly after his tasing in 2004. COA signed by Keiko Jones. Excellent condition.
A pair of Elvin’s stage used sticks, brushes, his stage worn Jazz Machine T-shirt and a poster from Elvin’s personal collection of his own tour posters are all included with the set. A complete set of Elvin’s K Zildjian cymbals are available separately. See and hear the set in action in the 2 videos below.
Due to extreme high value of this set I prefer to ship in a wooden crate via freight. This is by far the safest and most economical way to ship a large/valuable item like this. Plan on about $800-$1,000 shipping in the US. I will ship internationally. Call for rates.
