Alex Gonzales, Drummer With Top Latin Rock Band Mana, Plays DW Drums

Alex Gonzales Drummer


Drum Workshop is proud to announce that Alex Gonzales, drummer with the "Rock En Español" sensation Mana, is now playing DW Drums, Pedals and Hardware exclusively. Currently on the road, touring behind the band’s latest Platinum recording, "Revolucion de Amor", Alex is playing a DW Collector’s Series Maple drumset consisting of 8x10, 9x12, 11x14 and 13x16 tom-toms, 18x22 bass drum and an assortment of DW snares, including Edge, Craviotto and Collector’s Series drums. Alex is also using DW 9000 Series Hardware, a 5500TD Delta II Turbo Hi-Hat and a 5002AD Delta II Accelerator double bass drum pedal.

The 34-year old drummer who is nicknamed "El Animal" was born in Miami, Florida and began drumming at the age of four. He cites drummers from Ringo Starr, Keith Moon, John Bonham and Phil Collins to Stewart Copeland, Terry Bozzio and Manu Katché as his influences and admits that he took very few formal lessons; learning instead to play "from the heart". Since joining Mana in the mid 1980’s he has recorded several multi-platinum albums with the band, including an "MTV Unplugged" session, while also performing on several movie soundtracks as well as the Grammy-winning Santana album, "Supernatural", in 2000.
