WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I play the Collision 5A’s because they’re great sticks. They are without a doubt the most durable sticks I’ve played in my 40+ years of playing drums. The feel, balance and finish is excellent and the consistency has been great. In terms of artist support, everyone at Collision seems to be a musician or a genuine lover of music and that attitude is expressed in every interaction. I can’t recommend these sticks and this company strongly enough!
“When Mike takes a seat and the beat begins, there’s little doubt it’s time for fun. Common Ground is honored to have Mike share his rhythmic exuberance with the band and it’s audiences”
