WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I currently play with Collision 5A sticks. My favorite thing about them is how lightweight the sticks are while simultaneously being durable and well balanced. The Collision team is genuinely invested in the relationships with their artists and the drum community as a whole, and it’s evident that Collision is a brand made by drummers for drummers.
