Jimmy Eat World

I chose Gibraltar because I really love Gibraltar's flat-based Classic series hardware. I love the classic look with the modern design and functionality.  

For the past 20 years Zach has played drums for the Arizona alternative rock band Jimmy Eat World. He's also done studio work for other acts including The David Crowder Band and Benton Paul. He was born and raised and currently resides in Phoenix, AZ.

Work really hard because you love it, not because you're seeking a particular outcome. For drummers, be patient in your practice routine. A vast majority of the work you have to do as a drummer is very boring and tedious. In order to truly improve, you must be willing to be patient with yourself.
