Tommy Clufetos joins Meinl Cymbals family New endorsement for Rob Zombie drummer Rob Zombie drummer Tommy Clufetos joins Meinl Cymbals family Meinl Cymbals is very pleased to welcome Tommy Clufetos, rummer for the one and only Rob Zombie, to its family of cymbal artists.

Tommy Clufetos is best known for his no-holds-barred-rock-as-a-way-of-life style of drumming. With a never ending supply of energy he combines power, musicality, technique, showmanship, and a style that oozes cool into a deadly mixture that has earned him some of the top gigs in rock and roll.

With a resume that includes Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent and currently Rob Zombie, as well as just having been voted the #2 Best Metal Drummer in this year's Modern Drummer Magazine Readers' Poll, Tommy's credentials speak volumes about his capabilities as a world-class drummer.

Regarding his teaming up with Meinl Cymbals, Tommy Clufetos states:
"To play rock & roll at it's optimal animalistic outrage levels, I need the ultimate instruments to do so. Meinl helps me complete my sound. I wanna sound my best. That's why I play the best."

Meinl Cymbals Artist Relations Manager for the USA and Canada, Chris Brewer, says about Tommy:

"I've known about Tommy for quite some time and have always respected and admired what he brings to the world of drumming. There's not many real rock and roll drummers out there anymore, and Tommy is the real thing. After seeing Tommy bring the house down at the 2008 Montréal Drum Festival, I knew that the way he approaches drumming as well as his entire vibe would be a perfect fit for Meinl Cymbals, and that our cymbal sounds would be a perfect fit for him as an artist. A drummer like Tommy, where there's not many others like him, needs to play cymbals that have their own unique voice, rather than cymbals that don't really stand out from the crowd... With Meinl, he now has the instruments he needs to do so. He couldn't be happier about it and neither could we."
