Elvin Jones', 1990s, Yamaha Maple Custom Drum Set

Yamaha all maple shells in Elvin's signature Champagne sparkle finish. Includes complete set of cases and hardware in photos. 18x18" bass with "Elvin Jones Jazz Machine" logo head, signed 14x5 snare, 12x8, 13x9 toms, 16x16, 18x18 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. COA signed by Keiko Jones. Excellent condition. A complete set of Elvin's stenciled fiber cases are included as well as a pair of Elvin's stage used sticks and his stage worn Jazz Machine T-shirt. A hardshell ATA snare case stenciled "ELVIN JONES JAZZ MACHINE, YAMAHA" (not in photos) is also included. 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 by palleted freight. This is by far the safest way to ship a large item like this. I will ship internationally. Call for rates.

Wire transfer is the preferred method of payment. Due to the extreme high value of this set buyers must contact me before purchasing. The set will ship by freight in a single wooden crate. This is by far the safest and most economical way to ship a set of this value. Plan on around $600-$800 for US shipping. I will ship internationally. Contact me for a quote.

Serious offers considered.
