    Yamaha Drums Welcomes Jimmy Chamberlin of Smashing Pumpkins
    to the Company’s Legendary Artist Roster

    BUENA PARK, Calif. (February 16, 2018) — Yamaha Drums announced today the signing of Jimmy Chamberlin of renowned alternative rock band Smashing Pumpkins to the roster of Yamaha Artists. Jimmy is also known for drumming with the alternative supergroup Zwan, his jazz fusion outfit titled Jimmy Chamberlin Complex and collaboration with Chicago jazz saxophonist Frank Catalano.
    Jimmy’s kit of choice is the Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple with Polar White finish, which perfectly blends his signature feel, sound, and dynamics. This popular line of drums allows him to perform at all levels. From ghost notes to thunderous hits, Jimmy can express every emotion with each stroke. His snares of choice include the Yamaha 14” x 6.5” Recording Custom Aluminum (RAS1465) snare as well as the 14’’ x 6’’ Absolute Hybrid Maple snare drum (AMS1460).
    Taking up drumming at the age of nine, Jimmy rapidly progressed through lessons under future Yanni drummer Charles Adams, giving him a firm knowledge of the fundamentals. During his teen years, he went on to study under several other teachers, learning Latin, Brazilian and big band techniques. Chamberlin cites jazz musicians Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich, as well as rock drummers Keith Moon, Ian Paice and John Bonham as major influences, shaping the style he brings to Smashing Pumpkins.
    Following 1991’s “Gish,” Smashing Pumpkins broke into the mainstream market in 1993 with their second album, “Siamese Dream.” Through extensive touring and their 1995 follow-up, the double album “Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness,” the group built a large, dedicated fan base and signature style that continues to reach the masses today.
