Zildjian is delighted to welcome Lim Yong-Hoon from Korea to our family of Artists.
Lim Yong-Hoon is one of the most outstanding drummers in Korea today, and through his love of dance at school, and subsequent interest in the hip-hop beat, it led him to play drums at the age of 18 years. He has since greatly influenced the younger generation with his own unique style of drumming.
Lim Yong-Hoon has played with many famous Korean singers including, Sohn Ho-Young, Kim Jong-Suh, Na Yoon-Kwon, Shim Soo-Bong and Bobby Kim.
He is currently a member of Achtung, a three-piece fusion folk-rock band, who have recently released their second album.
Lim Yong-Hoon also lectures at Dong-Ah Broadcasting College and Joong-Ang University and has performed drum clinics many times. This year he wrote a drum booked entitled Basic Drum Method.
His cymbal set-up is:
6" A CUSTOM SPLASH
15" A NEW BEAT HIHATS
19" ARMAND BEAUTIFUL BABY RIDE WITH 3 RIVETS
14" K CUSTOM DARK CRASH
16" K CUSTOM DARK CRASH
8" A CUSTOM SPLASH
20" K CUSTOM DRY RIDE
18" K CUSTOM DARK CRASH
17" K DARK CUSTOM CHINA
He says "I believe there is no one in the world who dislikes Zildjian, who has a deep rooted history of 300 years of cymbal sounds. I have used Zildjian from the beginning of my drum lessons and still love to use them in my recordings and live performances today, as they are so harmonious with the music I perform. I also love to use Zildjian cymbals as I find them highly advanced in quality compared to other cymbals. I am honoured to become a recognised Zildjian Artist and it's certainly a great turning point of my life."
