„Paiste cymbals have a character which no other brand has and I just love this sound. I can’t imagine any musical situation that I couldn’t solve with Paiste. “

Biography

I started to play drums when I was 9 years old, taught by the best Hungarian teachers/musicians. I played my first European tour as a drummer when I was 14. In 2015 I joined the band called Bohemian Betyars, which has gained success ever since their songs and music videos are presented on every field of the media. From the Baltic Sea to the Atlantic Ocean, in the last couple of years this real powerboost band made the audience dance about a thousand times. As a member of Bohemian Betyars I perform in many European, Asian, and American clubs and festival's big or main stages. With Bohemian Betyars we have about 100 concerts all around the World every year. From 2018 I co-organize Hungary’s greatest drum competition called Drum-Line with my great friend - Tamas Juhasz - who also endorsed by Paiste.
