“Press quotes & testimonials”
I contacted M4U to rehearse a live set of my recorded songs. I sent over the stems in advance of the rehearsal along with a quick conversation with Iriel, the manager regarding my needs. He came across professional, knowledgeable and honest when setting my expectations and discussing arrangements. We then met for our first rehearsal and I was mind blown at how much the band picked up in a short time frame. We played through my songs at least twice, whilst ironing out any issues. I cannot recommend M4U enough for all your live music needs. A great one stop shop for highly skilled musicians. 5☆’s
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I play the 5AR,
My Favourite thing about the collision brand is the size, it fits my hand perfectly, with other sticks I have played after a while it hurts your hands, but these dont.
I would recommend them because they are very durable, they last a long time which is amazing, no drummer wants to keep breaking sticks.
