One of the most sought after drummers today, Keith Carlock will be hitting the road on a 13-city US clinic tour in April and May of 2012. Keith has been the driving force behind artists such as Steely Dan, James Taylor, Sting, John Mayer, The Blues Brothers, Wayne Krantz, and many others. 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).

The 13-city tour commences on April 17th in Los Angeles, CA and finishes May 3rd in Boston, MA. As with other Zildjian clinic tours, each dealer will host a Zildjian Sales Event with special deals and pricing on Zildjian products specifically tailored to the clinic. In addition, Zildjian will run special promotions at the dealer locations as well as contests on and Facebook. Drummers may win Keith’s new Vic Firth Signature Series Drumsticks, Zildjian Gear, or a Cymbal personally signed by the drummer.

According to John DeChristopher, Zildjian’s Vice President, Artist Relations & Event Marketing Worldwide, “We’re excited to bring Keith out on a US clinic tour. Judging by the positive response from our dealers and drummers, the clinics are sure to be a big success.
