Cymbals (シンバルズ?) was a Japanese rock band active from 1997-2003. The trio was composed of vocalist Toki Asako (土岐麻子?), bassist/guitarist Okii Reiji (沖井礼二?), and drummer Yano Hiroyasu (矢野博康?). Like other Japanese bands which emerged in the late 1990s (including Clammbon and Hermann H. & the Pacemakers), Cymbals were strongly influenced by the British pop-rock sounds of the 1960s. Despite solid songwriting and album production, they never scored a true "hit", which eventually resulted in the band's breakup in September 2003. They played a final 90-minute farewell concert at Shibuya O-East on January 20, 2004. The group's members remain musically active – Toki as a solo artist, Okii as a producer (for Toki and others), and Yano as a session drummer and producer.
