WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
The Collision stick size I play are 7A’s. Having played these for a number of months and having tested them against top brands such as Vic Firth, I couldn’t believe how durable Collision sticks are. A lot of my gigs and sessions are high energy and hard hitting so I need a brand behind me who can produce the quality I need. I can safely say Collision delivers the goods!
The reason I am looking forward to working with Collision Drumsticks are because you look after the artist, you want to help build the artist as well as promote your own brand. Ever since this endorsement process began, it has given me more confidence as a musician. To know that all the hours that I have spent in rehearsals, studios and gigs have paid off.
