OVERVIEW

Gorilla Snot helps guitarists hang on to their picks while burning up the strings and helps drummers keep a grip on their drumsticks when they drum up a sweat. Gorilla Snot has also found a niche among roadies and sound techs for hauling gear around.

Natural, biodegradable rosin is applied by rubbing a small amount of Gorilla Snot between your thumb and index finger and working it into your pick or sticks. Gorilla snot dries in about 45 seconds, forming a soft yet tacky surface activated by body heat.

This is a great product that works perfectly for drummers in many ways.
During winter months, when your hands are dry and have less or no natural oils, it is hard sometimes to keep your grip on your sticks. Your skin's natural oils also decrease with age on top of that. I tried several types of gloves but I really can't play well with them on, you can't really have a feel of the sticks. In many occasions I found myself holding the sticks too tight so they wouldn't fly away, which was extremely uncomfortable and caused me even pain during performances. It not only affected my playing but I also worried about having long term problems with my hands if I kept playing with an excessively tight grip.
Then I found this product. Gorilla snot solved all my problems. I do not use it every time, but I always have it with me. On those cold days, when your hands are completely dry, I just put a little dab between my fingers and problem solved. It is comfortable, reliable, and let's me play comfortably and with confidence.
You only need a little bit of this stuff, and it lasts forever. I've had the same container for three years now, and is almost half full. It does dry out a little bit, but if you rub it in, it works the same. It has a nice natural pine smell, and comes off with hot water and soap in seconds. It does not leave goo on your sticks either.
I truly believe that this product saved me from serious issues on my hands due to a too tight grip.
Excellent product.

I tried this at a music store, trying to get the Jazz III picks to stay in my grip. This stuff smells a lot like pine rosin (think violin bow rosin). It works great for gripping. However, if you wipe your hands on your jeans, it will pick up fuzz. Also, if you decide to finger pick, you will get this stuff all over your strings. It's a good idea, but it's just not for everyone. For me, picks with a grip area on them work better.

        Pros

        • Eliminates Drop Outs
        • Keeps From Dropping Picks

        Cons

        • Hard To Fingerpick After

        Best Uses

        • Strumming Guitar

        Comments about Gorilla Snot:

        I put some in every guitar case. Rub between fingers holding your pick. It helps keep hold of picks so playing is fluid with no drop outs from lost picks or having to use fingers after dropping. I have diabetic neuropathy and this is a lifesaver for me due to lost feeling in fingers. Works best strumming. The only negative is the transition from strumming to fingerpicking. Fingers stick together so need to wipe off to fingerpick.

        TOO Sticky

        Pros

        • Reduced Slippage

        Cons

        • Pro Grip Is Better

        Best Uses

        • All Flat Pick Players

        Comments about Gorilla Snot:

        I bought Pro-Grip from Elderly Instruments, Lansing Michigan and Gorilla Snot from Musicians Friend. Both are rosin-based products designed to reduce flat pick slippage and turning by getting sticky. Pro-Grip is more creamy, smells better and gets sticky in a few seconds. Gorilla Snot doesn't have an aromatic scent added and is immediately sticky. Both work great to reduce flat-pick slippage and turning. Turning means the flat-pick will turn around between your fingers if you tend to perspire while playing. The Pro-Grip was a bit less expensive than Gorilla Snot. Granted, both products work as advertised, but I prefer the Pro-Grip. Try them both and see which you prefer, then gift someone with the product you don't like.

        Name is worse than product

        Comments about Gorilla Snot:

        Dated 2013 but still had a 1/4 inch crust on top. Smells like turpintine, but not bad. A little bit goes a long way. Problem is that it holds pick in place to well; can't adjust pick once you grab it on the fly. Concerned it will gunk up my strings as I switch from pick to finger picking. It DOES work. I'm sure it will come in handy when it's hot.
