Dave Weckl: I Play Yamaha.

For the last 20 years, Dave Weckl has maintained a reputation amongst his fans and peers as one of the very finest musicians on the contemporary music scene today.

In 1985 Michael Brecker suggested that Chick Corea check out this new young guy in town, Dave Weckl, for his new 'Elektric Band' he was forming. That was the beginning of a 7 year relationship with both the 'Elektric' and 'Akoustic' Bands, where 9 recordings and 3 videos were produced, including a Grammy for the initial Akoustic Band release.

As a solo artist, Dave has recorded and produced nine of his own recordings to date; Masterplan, Heads Up, and Hardwired, available on GRP/MCA records, and most recently with the Dave Weckl Band, Perpetual Motion, Transition, The Zone, Synergy, Rhythm Of The Soul, and a brand new LIVE recording released in October of 2003.

Daves sound is a signature aspect of his career. He has created products bearing his own name with Yamaha Drums and has relied on Yamaha Drums & Hardware for the 30 years of his exceptional professional career.
