Mike Kaabe first started playing the drums at the age of 10 after seeing fellow Zildjian endorsee Tre Cool smashing the kit like a madman on TV. From that definitive moment Mike has been playing Zildjian, and has finally actualized his dream in becoming part of the artist roster. Mike now plays with Emmure, a metal band that has been touring the world since 2006 and couldn’t be more excited for the bands upcoming release, as well as dates in Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and America. Mike also does session work around the NYC area when not touring, and has a solid understanding of funk, R&B, jazz, hip-hop, drum and bass, progressive, and various world styles to keep his musical palette as diverse as his cymbal selection. "Zildjian is not only one of the flagship companies in contemporary music; they're the only choice when it comes to having the best and most beautiful tones in any musical context."
