WHO IS...JODY GIACHELLO

 

 

NAME:

Jody "4D" Giachello

PERSONAL WEBSITE:

jodyg4d.com

MAIN BAND (WEBSITE):

haimtheband.com

OTHER PROJECTS (WEBSITE):

chottoghetto.com

PAISTE ARTIST SINCE:

1999

 

BIRTHDAY:

3/30/86

HOMETOWN:

Long Beach, CA

 

FIRST PAISTE CYMBAL:

I believe the first cymbal I got as a Paiste Artist was a 20'' Traditional Thin Ride.

 

 

THIS IS JODY'S CYMBAL SETUP:

 

24" Masters Thin


22" Masters Thin


20" Masters Dark Crash


15" Masters Thin Hi Hats

 

 

 

 

PLAYING DRUMS SINCE:

2 years old (1988)


FIRST DRUMKIT:

An assortment of drums that were customized to be low enough for me to play at age 3. My first real kit that I still use to this day, is a 1967 red sparkle Ludwig that I restored myself when I was in 9th grade.

 

FAV PAISTE CYMBAL & WHY:

Right now I'd have to say my 20'' Masters Dark Crash. It always sounds amazing, and has been one of my main go to's for the past several years. Recording with it, to playing it on Broadway, and currently using it as my main crash with HAIM.

 

FAV FOOD:

BBQ


TOP 3 ALBUMS OR SONGS:

Miles Davis - Sorcerer, Tony Williams - Emergency, Deftones - Around the Fur

 

 

 

 

YOUR BEST EVER SHOW/RECORDING SESSION:

My favorite show was last year (2017) at Prima Vera Sound in Barcelona, Spain. I performed a secret set with HAIM at 3am. It was such an amazing experience to see thousands of people so excited to see you perform in the middle of the night, and right next to the Mediterranean Sea. The energy that night was like nothing I've experienced before.

IF YOU WEREN’T A DRUMMER, YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE A …:

I would like to restore classic cars, probably a Metal Fabricator.

DO YOU PREFER TOURING OR RECORDING AND WHY:

I love recording and the process it takes to get the final product. But personally, I prefer touring and playing in front of audiences. The energy you get back from the roaring crowds and fans can't compare to any type of feeling you get in a studio session.

RECOMMENDATION FOR A BEGINNER:

Listen and practice to a lot of music, and many different styles. Make sure you check out and study the great legendary drummers from the past. They are the foundation of the drumming language, and without them there would be no drumming vocabulary.
