WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I use Collision Size 5BR. My favorite thing about de brand is the support they give to many drummers, from the smallest to the largest around the world. I recommend the collision drumsticks for the quality and resistance of their material, also for the weight of the drumsticks since of the brands i have tried it has been the one that has accommodated me the most from the first moment I used them.
