band: Bloco Das Divinas Tetas
STICK SIZE: 5BR
Hi! How’s every one doing? I’m G Maranhaum (Guilherme Maranhão) and I’ve been a drummer since 1998. Over the years, I’ve been in bands of many styles, including Macunas, which played a mixture of pop-rock and congo-capixaba, a cultural manifestation from south-eastern Brazil. We published our first album in 2013, which includes one of my songs. My current band: Bloco das Divinas Tetas, which plays in Brazilian Carnaval. We’ve been growing together since our very first carnval, back in 2016, and our performances throughout the years. With Divinas Tetas, I’ve played in some of my favourite venues, such as the very heart of the my hometown, in the streets of Brasília, in front of thousands of people and in landmarks like the Mané Garrincha Stadium. To have all sorts of people partying together in thousands and in peace is, for sure, one of my favourite accomplishments as a musician.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I play Collision Drumsticks 5BR. What I love about it is that I barely remember them, while playing, because they feel so right! They´re a little longer and heavier than the regular 5B, but not heavy enough to crack B8 and/or thin B20 cymbals. Beyond that, there´s the durability. From the pairs I ordered, almost a year ago, I´m still on my first one and though they´re a bit chewed by the snare drum rims (fair enough), they are far from sounding and feeling like they´re about to brake. Love it! I recommend Collision Drumsticks to all of those who look for a durable quality product and for a brand wich pays attention to it´s customers and a very special attention to the drumming community overall.
