Yamaha Elvin Jones Snare

Print

Not exactly new to the market, but with a style, sound, feel and quality that’s sure to raise an eyebrow or two, the Elvin Jones snare is about as jazz specific as you can get. They say that Jones requested a snare drum that would cover everything from intricate brushwork to dynamic rolls. The result was a 14X7in, all maple 7-ply shell, fitted with vintage wood hoops, small gold lugs and finished in ‘Gold Sparkle’ – to complement the hardware. Fitted with a standard Yamaha coated head, this extraordinary drum has a unique dynamic and timbric quality that will warm the cockles of even the most discerning skin skimmer. Give it a road test – and be amazed.
