      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!!!

            My fingers crack really bad to where it's painful to play but this tape keeps them from cracking as bad it's just hard to get that first wrap started but I'll definitely keep using it.

              By alex

              from Undisclosed

              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.

              Great Tape, but minor inconveniences

              Comments about Vater Stick and Finger Tape:

              Great tape, worth the price, but has some minor problems. Will use again!
              This is my first time using tape on my marching snare sticks, and I have to say its great in reducing pain from current blisters when playing. Putting it on the sticks though causes more blisters than the bare wood would.
              The roll literally sticks to itself, you have to make sure you keep the end of the tape loose for use nextime otherwise it will stick to itself and it will be VERY hard to pick off and start again.
              Very much worth the price, great for what you pay.

              Great For Your Fingers, But Not For Your Sticks

              By perks37

              from Milford, NJ

              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.

              I haven't dropped a stick yet

              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.

              This stuff looks like sand paper!!! It might be okay if you tape your fingers but doesnt it give you even worse blisters if you put it on the sticks? It is a realy good price though.
