OVERVIEW

Protection for your fingertips that every guitar player can use.

Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors are a handy tool for guitarists that hate the pain in their fingertips after playing for hours, that have trouble developing callouses or even beginners who haven't been playing long enough to develop them. These provide protection and comfort without sacrificing your finger's natural feel on the fretboard.

3. Compare your measurement with the guide below to determine best fit size.

1 1/2" - 1 3/4" (38-44mm) or less, choose XSmall

2" - 2 1/4" (51-57mm), choose Medium

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.

      Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

      I lost the end of my middle finger just below the nail and can't play most chords because of lack of reach. These finger tips help with reach and things are getting better. I my case, they aren't the complete answer but do help some.

      Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

      I got these for my grandchildren that I am teaching the basic chords to. They are 9 & 11. The girl is 9 and the boy is 11. with their small hands they have problems stretching for the base strings so we're concentrating on the 4 note chords. My granddaughter complained about the strings hurting her fingers. These helped a lot with that.

      Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

      I am just learning guitar and haven't built up calluses yet. I've been using the finger protectors when my fingers get sore to allow myself to play longer. I mostly just use on my 2nd finger since that's the one that gets the most sore. It will sometimes start to slip when my finger gets sweaty but it's not a huge issue.

          Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

          Cut my finger so bought these to protect the injured fingertip. They work great at protecting and can at least continue to play without further slicing up my finger, I bought small and medium size. These stretch pretty well so buy the smallest you think may fit. So far they have held up well although do not slide up the string as well as a bare finger.

              Cons

              • Can slip off
              • Playing with them can be difficult

              Best Uses

              • 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.

                Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

                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.
