This stick wax is great. My hands are bone dry through most of the year, especially during winter. This makes holding onto slick sticks quite difficult. I found myself focusing too much on the holding onto and re-gripping of the sticks. The wax is the perfect remedy and I consider it to work even better than the dipped grip sticks such as vic grip. The fragrance is also quite pleasant. It also seems to last forever. I bought the can about 6 months ago and reapply every couple days due to the friction wearing the wax off. It barely looks like I've used any. I would Imagine this could last another couple years for sure, and that is with playing every day.

I have had the Zildjian wax now for 2 to 3 weeks and I play about 4 to 5 times a week. It seem to help a little bit but not all that much. I have applied it several times over and over but no good. I do have sweaty hands but that was one of the reasons I bought this because I was hoping with all the good reviews that it would work but it didn't. Not much good as far as I am concerned. Would Not Recomend

Great Stuff

Comments about Zildjian Drumstick Wax:

Sticks used to fly out of my hands often, and I would have trouble gripping the sticks. This stuff is amazing and I never drop sticks anymore, I literally cannot play without it now. Its a bit sticky but I never feel like my hands are gross after. It smells great and lasts forever.

Comments about Zildjian Drumstick Wax:

My hands sweat a lot while playing and sticks used to slip out of my hands often. This lets me grip the sticks comfortably and never drop another stick. It does get a bit sticky, but you get used to it. I cannot play without it now!

Awesome

Comments about Zildjian Drumstick Wax:

I've had issues with sticks flying out of my hands. I've looked into gloves, but thought I'd give this a try after many years of using nothing. I was worried it was going to be a gooey material, but it's just like wax! The first time I used it was at a gig and WoW!! I'm totally impressed. It does grip more and more the warmer your hands get. I'm sold. I'll definitely be buying more of this in the future! A must for people having trouble holding onto sticks!

Zildjian drumstick wax on guitar picks?!?

Comments about Zildjian Drumstick Wax:

My drummer bought some of this to put on drumsticks he has because they slip out of his hands a lot. This does the job really well for drumsticks. I decided to try it out on the top of my guitar picks because they slip out of my hands alot as well and it does the job on guitar picks as well. So this product definitely has more uses than just on drumsticks. Guitarists try this stuff out!!

this stuff actually works

Comments about Zildjian Drumstick Wax:

Sure, you have to re-apply it occasionally, but, I've been using it for about three years now. I started because I had to look for something that would help because with arthritis, it is getting harder and harder to hold my sticks. Tried the gloves, rubber pads, and several other products... I even choose this over gorilla snot, because with this, just a couple seconds rubbing over the grip surface, you're ready to go. And it actually adheres better as you play because the heat in your hands makes it even stickier. Haven't dropped a stick due to the cramps in quite a while now. I'd recommend it. Gotta get more... LOL

Comments about Zildjian Drumstick Wax:

With the wax on my sticks I no longer have them slipping and flying at my instructor or while practicing. Product smells fine and leaves a barely noticeable wax on your palms. Not a big deal though I'd certainly clean it off before playing my bass.

      Comments about Zildjian Drumstick Wax:

      Awesome! I bought all three products available for improving the grip on drum sticks and this one is the best. There is a lot of it so it will be around for a while. It came in a nice container to keep it clean and it travels well. A little goes a long way! I can now concentrate on playing the drums and not worry about dropping my sticks.

            This drumstick wax does work - and it works well. However, I did find that it needs to be re-applied each day that you play. This now makes it inconvenient especially for those people who go through lots of sticks. With tape, apply it once correctly and it lasts the life of the stick.

                    This wax has great improved my confidence in drumming. No more focusing on stick control or fearing the sudden airborne stick in the middle of a song. Now I can more easily settle into the music and trust that my sticks will stay with me.

                          this stuff works, but doesn't last. pick up the wax thing in one hand, and stick in the other, then start rubbing it all over. it takes a couple seconds and could be easier to apply i think. It smells nice and leaves a barely noticeable residue on your palms. i used it for a couple weeks then stopped just because i felt i didn't need it anymore, but for players with sweatier hands i'd reccommend it. the warmer your hands get the more it sticks.

                                The can could shut a little lighter. A ziploc bag will solve that.
                                I handle cardboard all day, so I have very dry hands. I have been useing a non glue rescue tape made of silicone. It worked great but this is amazing. I'll never have to wrap a stick again!
