“ProLogix pads have a great feel and the variety offers a lot a flexibility for different practice situations. I've always been a bit of a “practice head“ so it's a fresh and exciting thing to get into it on the new ProLogix pads to burn some rubber!“

Grant is one of the forerunners in the industry, forever pushing the limits and confines of music and leading cutting edge, creative and unconventional drumming. His approach defies stereotypical drum set methodologies with his innovative and enthralling solo drum set compositions. He uses all four limbs both individually and as a collective to present multi-timbral sound scapes, defining the drum set as a contemporary solo instrument for the world stage.
Through his determination, Grant has developed powerful and modern drum set solo performances, which have captivated audiences not only in Australia, but around the world. Grant’s vivacious and dynamic one man show is a reflection of his infatuation with the drums, which has seen him tour and perform as an international artist at many concert halls across the globe. Not only does Grant attack the boundaries of a solo performer, he also pushes the restrictions of his instrument to create ground-breaking ingenious works. Grant’s sell out performances have also been trumped with feature presentations on countless radio stations and television programmes. These high accolades have also been received for Grant’s DVD Live @ The Tivoli – The Official Bootleg and his CD’s Primal Instinct and Dogboy, for which he has received exceptional reviews from around the world.
The extensive skills of Grant Collins go beyond his abilities to create and use such an intense drum set. Currently, he is in the process of completing his Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in composition and performance, which has supported his international growth and reputation. Grant’s academic and educational sectors have also benefited from his near completion of the PhD. His active involvement with the Queensland Arts Council and Education Queensland has delivered some of the highest quality educational workshops in schools throughout Queensland and Australia.
