Band: MANSA/Session Drummer
STICK SIZE: 5Ar
Born Alonzo Sanders Jr., Lonzo first got his start drumming in church in Indianapolis, Indiana. Taking cue from his older sister, he would drum and sing in church choirs, then onto playing the snare drum in marching band, and eventually moving onto playing live for local and national recording artists in the world of gospel, r&b, and hip hop. These days you can catch Lonzo producing and working as a session musician for dozens of recording artists across the globe, and also performing lead vocals and saxophone in his genre-bending project, MANSA.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
Personally, I use the 5A Reach sticks. With my current setup at church, I have to stretch a little bit to get to my sweet spot on the ride cymbal. With the 5A Reach model, I’m able to make that stretch without sacrificing comfortability on my throne. I recommend Collision to my peers on the strength of the brand’s durability. Us drummers hate breaking sticks mid-gig!
