WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I use the Collision 5AR. The thing I love most is the durability. Collision sticks can take all the abuse I give them and then some. I’d been using another major brand since 2001 and there were numerous occasions when I would break one of their sticks literally within the first five minutes of playing a brand new pair. Not with Collision. I recommend that any serious drummer try them out. Their customer service and artist relations are top-notch and this is a product with which I’m proud to associate myself.
