Emluzsee – Marina Carvalho
BAND: Session Drummer
STICK SIZE: 5BR
My drumming journey began quite recently, but looking back, I’ve always wanted to learn how to play. When I was a kid I would “air-drum” to my favourite songs, try to figure out the beats… Then growing up, the drums were one of the main things I was looking out for when listening to music.
But… I decided that I couldn’t really learn it, so I ended up taking guitar lessons for a few years instead. I liked it but it was never my passion. The craving came back at the beginning of this year, when I started watching some insane drummers both on YouTube and live on Twitch… The way that they were enjoying and expressing themselves was so… Captivating! I wanted that in my life so I gave it a shot. I received my drum kit on the 12th of February… About a week in I started recording and sharing some practice exercises with close friends and family.
Then, when I felt that I was able to cover a song, I thought about sharing it with other drummers and get some feedback which helped me understand the drums significantly! Now I am just thrilled that I have found my passion. Music is so… therapeutic!
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
Currently I use the 5BR and I’m so glad I went for this weight/size! My practice sessions, whether on the pad or on the kit, feel a lot more comfortable.
I love that the Collision team supports their artist at 100%, have so much passion for drumming and… They are based in the UK! The fact that I get to be part of this family, with so many talented drummers, still blows my mind.
I would definitely recommend the Collision Drumsticks. I believe that any other drummer who tries them will be pleasantly surprised!
