    Now Selling Akira Jimbo! --Yamaha Maple Custom (-absolute)

    Hey folks,

    Looking to methodically build this kit out a bit. First, I would like to get my hands on a matching snare.

    Potentially looking for other pieces over time (I have the kick drum and 10, 12, 14 toms).

    Huge thanks to several of you for help getting all the hardware together (just had the shells initially).

    Thanks very much!

    Those are great drums. I always enjoyed the ones I played, and always wanted an 12/14/18 kit of my own from that series.

    The snares come up now and then on Yahoo Japan Auctions. I'd be happy to keep an eye out for you. Shipping wouldn't be cheap though.

    Hey, if you're still looking for one of these, here it is:

    https://reverb.com/item/7229042-yama...ech-snare-drum

    With the woodhoops? Ouch.I bet it sounds incredible. If I had ever played a 13 I liked, I'm sure I'd like that one even more! Good luck finding your kit.

    Thanks felllas. I found an Akira Jimbo.

    Man, that Maple Custom quoted by egw looks awesome. Don't think I can drop seven hundo on this one though.

    Btw, I also recently acquired the Jimmy Chamberlin steel sig. Amazing. May give up on the matching maple custom snare!

    Interested in 16" and 18" floor toms and an 18" kick (impossible, I know).
