MESA, AZ, USA
band: SESSION DRUMMER
STICK SIZE: 5a
My name is Kyle Smith and I have a YouTube Channel called Arizona Drummer.
Prior to 2012, I used to be a touring drummer in metal bands across the West Coast and was most popularly recognized for my time in A Distant Calm.
In 2012, I stopped touring and focused on raising my 2 beautiful children, now 11 and 7, and building myself up both professionally and personally.
Never losing my passion or practice of the craft, I was also looking for the right opportunity to get back out into the drum world; which I am doing now with Arizona Drummer.
Arizona Drummer is my new YouTube channel and brand that encompasses my passion for the instrument and my love for my local area. Arizona Drummer is a place where musicians and fans can come to see drum covers, original tracks, gear unboxing and review videos, NAMM and convention visits, and any of my studio and/or touring endeavors.
It doesn’t stop there, Arizona Drummer as a brand will be a symbol of consistency, proficiency, and commitment that I aim to take on the road and into the studio in a session capacity.

WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I currently play the 5A sticks and they are fantastic.
The play-ability of the sticks is incredible and the feel amazing to play.Most importantly though, is the durability of the sticks. I can play for weeks without breaking a stick and I’m finding myself able to play longer with a single pair.
