Yamaha Akira Jimbo Signature Snare Reviews


You're brand new, you're retro.

Akira Jimbo's snare drum is Japan in 13" by 7" of wood and steel joy. What am I talking about? Well if you've ever been to Japan you'll know that you will see the most cutting edge of technology side by side with the most beautiful and ascetically pleasing of the past, an Ipod next to a Temple if you like. And that's what this snare is, it's the past updated with the future. A wonderfully light shell with glorious wooden hoops gives the drum a very light and funky sound. A nice smooth snare mechanism and small lugs adds up to a really nice little snare drum. The only thing I didn't like was the Remo made Yamaha heads which aren't of the same quality. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a snare you can get some nice solid backbeats with but also some nice funky overtones. Li desu yo! As they say in Japan.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.
