Winifred Tan (Wini a.k.a. TinyWini)
band: altoduo / GLASSHOUSE / session drummer
STICK SIZE: 7a
I play most genres ranging from rock, pop, latin, reggae, jazz and soul, and I love dabbling into groovy stuff! Hence I’ve been specialising in mostly MathRock (with some prog rock), Fusion music, and Chill-Hop. I have played in several bands in the past, and founded a duo band “Altoduo” consisting of myself (on drums and keys) and a bassist (on bass and guitars) in instrumental mathrock & postrock music, which is currently signed under an Australian-SoutheastAsia Indie Label, Dark Escapes Music. We have a unique yet distinguishing style (a bass and drum-centric tune) from other mathrock bands, and we work with other collaborators & artists once in a while. We’d often release our music on streaming platforms & are exploring sync licensing.
I am also playing for a well acclaimed Australian emerging Chill Hop live band “Glasshouse”. Once in a while, I session for cover bands with genres in Pop, Cantopop, Alt rock, Indie Rock and neo-soul/pop genres. I’m also involved in other projects with independent local & overseas artists and record labels where I track drums for them to be used in short films. I’m also currently in the top percussion crew, Urban Drum Crew, in Singapore.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I’m currently playing predominantly 7A standards, and sometimes 5As, depending on the genres I’m playing (mathrock, prog rock, alt rock etc, or percussion). What I love most about Collision drumsticks is their resistance, thickness and durability – they do not shred as fast (rim hits, drum hits or even cymbal hits). Secondly, they have an optimum thickness, weight distribution and length, which really trains up my wrist power/responses and helps improve my drum techniques! I like their texture and grip, I find that they don’t slip off easily and yet don’t blister my small fingers as easily as other sticks too. They move smoothly in my small hands and are perfectly balanced and grips are perfect. Lastly, I love is their quick responses and great customer service!
I’ve never been more satisfied about a pair of drumsticks. I’d definitely recommend Collision sticks.
