I started using gloves to support my wrists, which would really be hurting after practice and gigs. These are the only gloves out there that provide real wrist support. Using them helped reduce my wrist pain, partly because of the support, partly because I had been gripping the sticks too tightly. These allow you to loosen your grip a bit on the sticks, reducing fatigue. The quality of the leather is top-notch, but be warned, there can be manufacturing imperfections. Ahead would be advised that at this high of a price point, quality control should rock! I've had pairs that split in a single practice, but on the other hand, I've had my current pair for four months with no issues (let's hope this is a trend).
Advice: get a tight fit, but not TOO tight, and when you store them after a practice, straighten them and neatly put them back in the bag (don't air-dry them, this will make them harden). I've found this greatly improves the life of the gloves.
Bottom Line: Unless you see gloves as a necessity, save your money for heads and sticks. If you need gloves, I'd recommend these to lessen overall wrist fatigue

Ok

were great for about 3 weeks of constant playing every night. One night they tore at the thumb and kept getting bigger after it tore. Havent used them since then.

      My grandson Jules uses this product for practice on his drums so his hands do not get as blistered, he is happy with the results and wears them everyday for practice and takes them to his lessons.

      Way too small - not sure I can use them.

      • Good Grip

      • Sized Too Small

      Best Uses

        Comments about Ahead Drummer's Gloves with Wrist Support:

        These are so small (largest offered) that I'm not even sure I can use them. As I'm getting older, blisters seem to come more easily - was hoping these might help. I'll update after next practice.

        Good for old hands

        Pros

        • Absorbs Shock

        Best Uses

        • Playing Drums

        Comments about Ahead Drummer's Gloves with Wrist Support:

        I have old hands to go along with my old body. These gloves have helped with the shock of hitting and also help with grip. They are thin and comfortable but they do wear out fast if you play hard like me.

          These gloves have proven themselves to me. They are awesome. when I first got them I was worried about them busting out at the seams but they have stood the test of time. They give me great grip with my ahead sticks.

          Loved them.....

          Comments about Ahead Drummer's Gloves with Wrist Support:

          I have had mine for more than a year, and they have served me well. Only recently I have been playing harder, and more often, they have started to wear around the wrists, palms and fingers. This is the only pair of dumming gloves I have used, so I can't compare them to any other brand. I am ordering another pair now.....I feel I have got My money out of these!! Later!
