His distinctive sound and unique approach have set him apart from other players of his generation. Since arriving on the music scene in the late 90s, Keith has topped several reader’s polls including #1 Pop, #1 Fusion and #1 All-Around in the 2009 Modern Drummer Readers’ Polls. Other career highlights include appearances at the 2008 Zildjian Drummers Achievement Award Tribute to Ginger Baker in London and the 2011 Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC).

It’s no secret that Zildjian is and always has been the leader in cymbal innovation, but drumsticks too?
That’s right. Many of the biggest names in drumming play Zildjian Drumsticks- Vinnie Colaiuta , Dennis Chambers, Travis Barker and Dave Grohl to name a few. Many of the signature models are unique in design, functionality and personality.
Gen16 AE Cymbals are in select stores now and those drummers who are getting to experience them are loving them. Milano Music in Mesa Arizona just received their first Shipment of 6 Boxsets and Tom, Eric, Joe and Rulon couldn't wait to open up a box and experience it for themselves, and their video is a great demo of how fast and easy it is to set up GEN16 AE cymbals for the very first time.
Unpacking a GEN16 AE BOXSET is like opening an awesome Christmas gift. Even the packaging is impressive. The owners manual is a contemporary work of art reminicent of a hi-end APPLE product and all components are individually packaged in internal boxes in GEN16 signature blue. Everything is included to get you up and running quickly.
BUT WAIT, there's more!
This changes everything!
The New line of products from Zildjian’s Gen16 Intelligent Percussion division have hit select stores this week. Go in and try them out; this changes everything.
The beauty of these cymbals is the beauty in the cymbals. As a low volume acoustic cymbal that plays at 25-50% of the volume of a standard cymbal, this is a must-have addition to every drummer’s cymbal bag. The high end shimmer and clarity can’t be found anywhere else. The feel and control of the 20” ride cymbal is reminiscent of a flat ride and allows ride patterns to be distinct and articulate. And the look…. Game Over! With the beautiful, shiny nickel plating reflecting the cool blue lighting effect emitted from the Gen16 pickups, the AE cymbals may become a welcome addition to your living room decor.
But these are more than just great sounding cymbals with an awesome appearance, these cymbals give you new creative power. While being designed to improve the cymbal performance experience when added to E-Kits, these cymbals let you put on the head phones and experiment with a whole new palette of sonic possibilities.
Dave Grohl is the real deal and lives and loves Rock and Roll. After winning BEST ROCK VIDEO at a recent MTV Video Music Awards with his band, FOO FIGHTERS, Dave said in his acceptance speech, "I just want to say: Never lose faith in real rock and roll music, you know what I mean? Never lose faith in that. You might have to look a little harder, but it's always going to be there."

Grohl was the drummer and a integral member of Nirvana; the band that ushered alternative rock into the mainstream in 1991. While in recent years he has been best known as the front man and guitarist for the Grammy winning FOO FIGHTERS, he is still a drumming icon for those who love hard hitting drummers that play for the music, the song, and the band. Dave has also lent his drumming talents to other popular artists such as Queens of the Stoneage, Probot, Tenacious D and Them Crooked Vultures.

COMING TO WEST LA MUSIC
Monday, MAY 16 7PM
We are excited that Jason Bittner's first Southern California appearance as the newest Zildjian Drumset Artist will be held at West LA Music on Momday May 16th. It promises to be a good one.
According to Jason's comments on the Zildjian website, "The clinic tour will feature play alongs, free-form playing, educational content, and fun. I'm hoping to have a few Shadows Fall tracks from my new record to share with fans on the tour. Zildjian cymbals are featured in these new recordings. They’ve already become a part of my sound. It's really been a seamless transition for me."
HOW DRY (and limited) THESE ARE!
2011 SPECIAL DRY RARITIES SELECTION
Another 2011 Rarities offering that we just received is the 19" Special Dry Crash Ride. It is a beauty and it lives up to its name. It has a great "dry" quality that brings clarity to your "ride" pattern playing and a great controlled "crash" that opens up beautifully and then quickly decays to get out of the way.
This Crash Ride is made to complement Zildjian's 21" Special Dry Ride that is a Percussion Partners favorite. Used together, this combination allows you to drive any band with a defined stick sound and the added color and punctuation of quick crash bursts that don't get in the way. Two different lathe patterns, combined with two distinctive hammering methods, lend themselves to giving these models both great crash and ride qualities.
