band: session drummer
STICK SIZE: 5b
Yo! My name is Aaron Fields-Cypress! I am 29, a USAF Vet, a Software Designer / Developer, and I love playing Drumset, Video Games, and all things nerdy. I started out playing drumset at my family’s church around 2005. I quickly learned that concert band and drumset are 2 different beasts. My drumming background comes from marching snare and bass drum throughout high school. I then spent a couple of years in the WGI circuit playing for an Independent group called Craven, out of New Bern, NC. We medaled 3rd in 2010 our 2nd year as a group. My style has a rockish/linear feel to it. I’ve been growing into my gospel roots recently after getting my Roland kit in 2020. After a decade of not drumming consistently, I’ve been able to practice and really develop my skills as a drummer. I spend most of my days drumming, cooking, and streaming video games with my wife. I’m a huge goofball that just likes to have a good time, If you like to goof around and have a good time make sure to follow my socials and come say hi!
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I use the “Rock Size” and the 5Bs. The Collision brand is all about the artist, and they’re all about the artist of any size. You don’t have to be a drummer for ACDC you can just be you. A notable difference for me is the stick weight. It adds this “UMPH” to my strokes that feel great whether I’m on my electric kit or an acoustic kit. I’d recommend Collision to anyone who’s looking for a reliable, durable stick that feels like you’re swinging with something SOLID.
