County Durham, England
Band: Scarred By Truth
STICK SIZE: 5Ar
Hi my name is John Miller and I am the drummer from the UK metal band Scarred By Truth. I’ve been playing for over 20 years now, starting off playing in rock and punk bands in the late 90’s and more recently scarred who I’ve been with for the last 3 or 4 years. Scarred are a 5 piece metal band from the North East of England and while we do love it up north, we’re pushing south for 2023-4 with some shows and festivals booked in the more clement lower half of the country. Keep an eye on our socials for details.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I’m currently playing the collision 5AR’s which have a great balance and seem to take a load of punishment without complaining much at all. I have played heavier coated sticks in the past and find that the 5AR’s do strike nice balance between speed and power, handy for those quicker segments mid way through a set. I also find that little extra reach helpful especially if you’re not on your own gear and can’t quote get stands positioned quite were you’d like. I’m stoked to have found a manufacture in the north east, it feels great to be supporting a local business and also finding one with such a solid product and a global reach. Every conversation I’ve had so far has been positive and easy going and there’s a great community feeling from the team and the artists involved with the brand. If you’re looking for an upgrade in quality, I’d recommend Collision.
