This stuff is great as finger tape! I tour constantly and based out of the upper Midwest. It gets extremely cold outdoors (load ins/outs) and dry indoors. My fingers crack and blood blister due to extended play times. Our show is between 3 and 3:20 hours so, as you can imagine, there are many many repetitive hits on the hat and snare.
My joints and fingers take a beating not only playing, but doing our own full production. I've been playing professionally for 35 years (I started very young) and it has taken it's toll on my body. This tape is great for saving those contact points. I tape the lower part of my left hand's first finger between my palm and first joint and my wedding band finger's second and third joint using two pieces of tape leaving the joint free.
This stuff lasts through the entire gig AND load out. I have to cut the tape off at the end of the night.
Great stuff! Thanks Vater and thanks Musicians Friend!

This tape can be good if you?re willing to deal with what it takes to use it. Slightly overlapping, wrap your sticks as tightly as you can without ripping the tape apart. Wrapping tightly will keep the tape from sliding down off of your stick when playing, as this tape only sticks to itself, and not to your stick. I use the Ahead drum sticks and can only speak for this type. Be prepared to use Band aids with this tape. Play for a while with your sticks wrapped, until your fingers start to blister and or hurt, then put on the band aids where needed. (Fabric band aids) Do this, on and off, until your hands get calices in all the right places. It will take some time? I change the tape, at the least, weekly. Using a razor blade, I carefully cut down the wrapped portion stick through the tape to remove it. NEVER LET THE END ON THE TAPE STICK TO ITSELF ON THE ROLL!!! It's almost impossible to get apart if you do. Remember, that it sticks only to itself. The tape will provide a great grip that can increase your attack speed substantially, BUT WILL cause blistering, and can be a pain in the A$$, for several reason, to use. However, I will still keep using it. Good luck!!!

vater stick tape

By alex

from Undisclosed

See all my reviews

Comments about Vater Stick and Finger Tape:

i bought this tape cuz my fingers were TORE up and i needed to let them heal for a day or two without sacrificing practice time. the tape overall did the job i needed it to, it was comfortable and saved my fingers like i wanted. having said that, this type of tape can be found next to the band aids in any store for like one or two dollars, it just wont say vater on the tag. also, i found that when i put the tape on the sticks, it slid off after a song or two, however i play pretty hard.

good stuff, does the job, cool colors, but in my opinion, it's overpriced for what it is.

Pleasantly Surprised

By MikeyLikesDrums-nHUsb

Comments about Vater Stick and Finger Tape:

I wasn't expecting much. But it is so cheap, I figured why not.I have been using the Ahead grip tape for some time, which I love, however the stuff is expensive after a while. For an active gigging musician, it gets expensive when you go through at least a pair of sticks per weekend. The Vater tape is very thin compared to Ahead grip tape, similar to a medical tape. However, its very easy to apply and is quite comfortable. Just secure the top end with a piece of electrical tape and you are good to go. I played two gigs so far and didn't drop a single stick and had no problems. The grip tape held up well and you can't beat the price. If you are a drummer on a budget, definitely give this a try. As good as Ahead grip tape? No. Better than a bare stick? Yes. A great bang for your buck.

Great For Your Fingers, But Not For Your Sticks

By perks37

from Milford, NJ

See all my reviews

Comments about Vater Stick and Finger Tape:

This tape is great for your fingers because it prevents blisters and also makes your existing blisters not hurt as much, but this tape is no good for your sticks. The tape slides off after a while and it causes more blisters than the bare sticks would. Plus, if you're a drummer who can't hold onto his sticks, you need more practice.

Super tape !

By GP-wqq1Y

Comments about Vater Stick and Finger Tape:

Tape your finger(s) not your sticks. I almost always have some nasty blister during and after a performance. Not with this tape though.I'll never leave home without it now.

I haven't dropped a stick yet

By TD

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Vater Stick and Finger Tape:

When I buy new sticks I wrap them with this tape- and I don't drop a stick during gigs or at practice. Before, I would be into a groove, and "whoop", there would go a stick. My only complaint is that you HAVE TO fold back the loose end, or you will never get the roll started again, it really sticks to itself. I also wrapped my hot rods- a great improvment in grip.

Sticky hands

By fuzzycuz

Comments about Vater Stick and Finger Tape:

This is great at first, but the fabric starts to spread apart as you play exposing the sticky backing. The sticky stuff gets all over your hands. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

    Comments about Vater Stick and Finger Tape:

    This tape is functional in that it will definitely help you grip the stick. However, the tape slides down the stick because it doesn't have any adhesive or anything to hold it once on the stick. The tape does adhere well to itself but there is still nothing that keeps it from sliding.
