I have been drumming for a little over ten plus years now. I started out from the game “Rockband” got a used kit and took some lessons to learn basic rudiments and drumming exercises. I was self taught and learn by ear! I used to produce many covers of songs on YouTube when I was in highschool, but after I got out I sought out to make my own mark and develop my own style playing in bands. The band I am currently in now is a hardcore (punk) band. We can play from the stage to a house show and we are always ready to hop on something! We are playing many festivals this summer including; Q-A-PALOOZA, and FWD Fest. Touring and playing more out of state outside of our hometown, Cincinnati. We will also be releasing our EP “Leviathan” this year.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
My stick of choice is the Collision Drumsticks 5A Custom Reach series! What I love about the brand is the durability of their products. These sticks do not chip away or whittle down like any other sticks I’ve used. The density of the wood is heavy but not so heavy where it’s annoying, giving me more power when I play while using less energy to execute such power. The the design of the 5ARs is perfect for me. I like an all wooden stick, no nylon tips and enjoy the clean stick design with the added red arrows for the “reach” quality! It took me a day to get used to the extra inch on my sticks compared to sticks I’ve used before in the past, it makes things easier to access, just that extra “reach” for the job! The current style of music I play in my band is hardcore so having these sticks over all help with my power hitting and accessibility around my kit! I’d recommend these sticks to anyone who wants more durable and heavier sticks. The sticks last a very long time!
