About Soultone cymbals, Jeff says: “In show work, quality and variety of sounds are primary concerns – I want instruments that have superior musical quality; and the musical directors I work with expect it. One month, I may be playing a show that's based around ragtime and early jazz; the next month, it may be country music or one of the Golden Age musicals; a couple of months after that, perhaps I'm playing a more contemporary show with a rock or R&B score. I've got to have a collection of cymbals to choose from that will complement all those genres and situations. Within Soultone's various cymbal lines, there's such a wide range of options, that I'm always able to find just the right sound I'm looking for!”

Jeff is currently on tour with the 20th Anniversary production of the Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning musical, RENT.
