Alphonse Mouzon was a jazz fusion drumming legend. He was an influence to many famed musicians such as Questlove of The Roots, and John Bonham of Led Zeppelin. In addition to touring and making about 20 albums as a solo artist, Alphonse was a founding member of Weather Report, and he recorded and toured with an extensive list of some of the biggest names in music. Alphonse passed on an impressive collection of vintage instruments and gear to his family, and they have decided to sell much of it through Astound Sound.
This clav has been fully restrung and yarn replaced with Vintage Vibe Clavigel. The hammer tips have also been replaced. The original legs and top cover are missing, but other than that, this thing is ready to rock! I do also have an Anvil road case for it that you can purchase for an additional fee.
I recommend we freight ship this item, since its big and bulky. Please contact me for rates.
This clav was likely played by Alphonse on the following tracks:
On the Corner
On Top of the World
