This product is helpful in relieving sore finger tips, but it dramatically reduces the ability to slide on the strings. The material they are made out of causes drag and traction, thus limiting your ability to slide. Other than this one problem, I find this product is useful for reducing finger tip pain and discomfort.

      • Protecting fingertips when needed

      Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

      I suffer from eczema which will usually lead to dry fingertips which eventually crack leaving them incredibly sore. Playing with bandages of any sort is next to impossible, but when I was sliding down the neck during a song and the string tore into that cracked fingertip, I needed to find something. When I got these I was thrilled. I threw one on the finger I was having issues with and began playing a bit will significantly reduced pain. The downside is, a lot of the things you do natural while playing, become a hindrance. Forget sliding with the fingers these are on, they pull them right off. I'm rating them five stars for the fact that they allowed me to still be able to practice (albeit not easily) and allowed my fingers to heal much more quickly. I recommend these for everyone to purchase. If you have a paper cut or cracked skin, these will still allow you to play without increasing the healing time due to irritation and abrasion of the strings. I wouldn't recommend them for performance, like I said, playing with them is a bit tricky. But I was able to get back to normal in no time at all and for that reason, they are in invaluable addition to my gear. Thanks to Gorilla Tips for inventing these.

        I love playing blues guitar! I gave it up years ago, because I couldn't build the calluses necessary, to stop my fingers from bleeding. I no longer have that problem, thanks to my gorilla tips. I can practice 2 hrs a day with ease.

            Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

            I have been playing guitar for forty years and would never have considered needing something like this. However, recently I spent a lot of time practicing on a guitar that needed a fret job and, without being aware of it, I was pressing harder than usual and formed deep grooves in my fingertips that started to interfere with my playing. I had a fret job done and I am back to playing lighter, but the Gorilla Tips have allowed me to "rehab" my fingers and keep playing. The design is good with a little more thickness in the fingertip portion of the protectors. They do slip a little sometimes while playing and they do slightly interfere with playing, so I definitely would not use them while performing for others - but they are fine for practice. I would recommend this for any player who wants to practice more but is having issues with the fingertips hurting or becoming excessively grooved. I have also been using chapstick and a pumice stone to help smooth out the callouses and grooves, but the Gorilla Tips have made all the difference. Without these I would have had to take some time off from playing. I am an average sized male (5'10") with average sized hands (medium). I ordered medium and these seem to be the right size although I think small would work as well with a snugger fit. The fourth protector is sized smaller for the little finger, and I have been using this on my first finger along with the regular size as double protection for that finger that has needed the most protection for now. I don't have any problem getting them on and off fairly quickly although it does take practice to find the technique to grab the edges to pull them on snugly. I find that you have to roll them up a bit to be able to pull them off. So far they are surprisingly durable. I give this product four stars because it's not perfect but I have trouble imagining how these protectors could be designed any better.

            Gorilla fingertips?

            Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

            As a classical guitarist and teacher I had to figure out a way to protect my fingernails when playing bass guitar, so I tried Gorilla Tips. I'm aware that they were originally designed for left hand fingertips, but with some oil for lubrication and flatwound strings on my bass they work very well.

                I found these easy to get on and very effective in protecting my fingers during play. Did not impede my playing ability at all, which admittedly is limited, but I was able to practice much longer with these on. They did seem to tear easily and wear out fairly quickly though. I will be buying more!

                  Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

                  I have been playing most of my life until I developed severe psoriasis that effect my hands. My fingertips would sometimes crack open making playing extremely painful if not impossible. I have tried all kinds of different medicines that help for a while but eventually become ineffective. These work for me because they even though at times in can be a little painful when I have to play and am having an outbreak at the same time, it keeps me from having to stop completely. I am so glad I found these. The only problem I have with them is that they might slip some while playing leaving a small bubble on the tip.

                  I'm no professional, but I've been trying to learn to play the guitar for more than 40 years. One of the things that always held me back was the length of time required to build and maintain calluses. These finger guards enable you to extend extend playing as you build calluses and stamina. They do make your fingers sweat, and require periodic adjustment, but I'm very pleased with them. I bought two sizes, creating two complete sets, and I change them out as required.
