Default Re:Some nice early Gracy badges

Here three photos from Japan of early and mid 60s Gracy badges. The early 70s Gracy badge I`ll post later. Hope you enjoy




Here is a shot of the ultra-rare Muraiyama Drum company- I hope to be able to give a better shot soon

Hereīs one I havenīt seen so often:


Maya Pro-Drummer

(Click on it for large version, again for mega-version...)

Nice birch-like drums, hardware inspired by Tama and Rogers-like lugs. Good quality, not the cheapest.

Also, Santana seems to be missing from many of these lists - early, typical stencil-brand in luauan and with banana-rail tom mounts. But nice wraps!

I have a pic somewhere....

Jon

Smile Re: Japanese Drums - Organization of names and badges

Hello,

Thought I would share with all of you one of my drum sets. Its a Tama Artstar Cordia from 1982. I've had this for 13 years now and just last summer I added on a second kick drum and most recently a 18" floor tom. I love these drums, but I will say I've been tempted to sell them to get Tama's new Stainless Steel or Bubinga Warlord kits... they're just to bad ass!

Pictures are here on my page.. www.myspace.com/drummerfromhellmusic

Thanks for this page guys.
I have gone out & found many catalogs to copy to use as references. I did not have this info. I have tons of catalogs & the pics.
If anyone needs any reference material, in specific, I would be glad to send them to you. I assume it is not a copyright infringement if I send them free of charge and they are used only for reference. I am lacking two vintage Tama catalogs.
I need: 1973 & 1981

I also have several Star catalogs. They are not dated, so I don't know what years I lack.
If there is anything you need, just drop me an email.

Cheers, Dave

Anybody knows anything about Decca drums, made in Japan, during the mid or late 60's ? I have an old 4 pc. drumset by Decca.
The most that I have learned about Decca is that it is a Japanese brand.
Thanks,
K.O

Dear webmaster

Given the relative weight of Japanese content now, is it worth having a new second category for them, rather than just continuing with just 'Non-USA'?

I am not noticing much cross interest between American, European and Asian enthusiasts within the postings.

This thread is for the eventual historical writings, not really for posting of random thoughts. Much like the thread on British drums. Thanks.

Sir, you are completely incorrect. While I mainly post in Non-USA, I am all over this forum, because I am a restoration pro, as are most of the others. Our love of the MIJ fare is honestly that of economics. My love of the instrument drives my choice of MIJ as I simply cannot afford to dabble in American drums AT THIS TIME. I can out restore and out build most so-called pros, any day of the week.
