Costa Is endorsing Balbex Drummsticks since 2009
Well, I play the drums and I am a part of the orchestra!
I am using every technique, finger or left hand lead. My drums are set right handed but I am always practicing left handed too, without changing my settings. You always developing a new style after all this is what drumming is all about, developing new ideas and styles! I am emphasizing in phrasing and groove and I usually play more singles than doubles, it helps me have a more powerful play and dynamic strokes.
I have studied Buddy Rich, Dennis Chambers, John Bonham, Josh Freese, Dave Abbruzzese and others. All these drummer’s styles and mimicking them has helped me create my own personal style.
I have very strong faith in me and I am very ambitious!
