„I’ve been playing Paiste cymbals all my life, and as an endorser for over 20 years. If anyone has seen me play, they’ve seen all my favorite 2002s and Signatures that surround me. So unique, explosive, and so much tone. I love these cymbals! “

Biography

San Antonio, TX native Bobby Jarzombek has long been one of the Lone Star state’s most respected and admired drummers. Since first making his mark with SA locals JUGGERNAUT in the mid-‘80s, Bobby’s surgical percussive assault has powered NYC legends RIOT, Judas Priest vocalist Rob HALFORD’s solo outfit, and prog wackos SPASTIC INK, among others. A touring pro for over 30 years, Bobby has played on 5 continents and performed in front of some of the largest crowds in the world, including Rock in Rio and the Wacken Festival. For the past 15 years, he has divided his time between prog metal stalwarts FATES WARNING and former Skid Row vocalist SEBASTIAN BACH’s band. Bobby also continues to do live and studio work with a variety of country music acts, including the TEXAS JAMM BAND featuring George Strait's Ace In The Hole Band.
