Zildjian welcomes our newest Artist to the Worldwide Family of Artists, Joe Clegg (UK).
Graduating from the UK's Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, Joe is the drummer and Musical Director for Ellie Goulding. Ellie will take home the Critics' Choice Award at the 2010 BRIT Awards, this Award previously won by Adele and later Florence and the Machine will surely catapult Ellie and her band to international acclaim.
Joe recently visited the UK Artist Office to select his cymbals, the set-up is as follows:
Left to right:
15" K Light Hi Hats or 2 x 16" K Thin Crashes paired as Hi Hats
19" K Dark Thin Crash
22" K Light Ride
20" K Constantinople Medium-Thin Ride, Low
For Ellie's use, Joe chose an 18" K Custom Fast Crash
"Zildjian has been in the business of making incredible cymbals for a long, long, time...to me they are the perfect choice for expressing my individuality. Picking a favourite cymbal from the set that I just picked out is a hard one! It's got to be the 20" K Constantinople Medium Low Ride, no wait, the 22" K Light ride...to be honest, they all sound amazing. The K Constantinople ride has such a unique tonality and really stands out in the studio. It's versatile too - I've just played it on a session as a main ride and also as a crash next to a 19" K Thin Crash. It's the sound that I've always wanted.
Zildjian is a Company that I am very proud to be associated with - I started with a 15" A Custom Crash as a teenager and now I'm a part of the family. It's a proud moment!"
