Beck discovered Bellino while searching YouTube for a talented drummer with “something different.”

A Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame inductee, multi Grammy® award winner, and Classic Rock Awards 2011 “Living Legend” winner – and as a performer who’s previous drummers include Vinnie Colaiuta, Narada Michael Walden, Keith Moon – Jeff Beck’s own bio reports, “The drums have to kick me in the a** and make me want to play or I’ll just sit there all day.”

Bellino is a member of Soultone Cymbals’ drummer family since 2006. Her diverse performances include work with Carmine Appice’s SLAMM, Rob Balducci, and LL Cool J’s 13 as well as having co-writer credits with Darryl “DMC” McDaniels of Run-DMC.

“Soultone Cymbals sound so clean and crisp,” reports Veronica Bellino. “The cymbals are so well designed and it shows in the sound. When I’m in the studio or walking off stage – usually a drummer or an engineer – someone will ask me about their amazing tone.”

Veronica Bellino first joined Soultone Cymbals at Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, CA. She was on her way to perform at a nearby venue when the sound from the Soultone Cymbals booth caught her ear. She was impressed enough to sit down to play them and immediately got the attention of the company’s founder and CEO, Iki Levy. “Veronica is a profound talent and I knew that from the moment she sat down. I was so impressed that I offered to let her bring the cymbals she liked best to use in her performance that night.” The rest is history.
