I use this tape for the tips of my index fingers and sometimes the middle of my index fingers. It works so well!!! i just do a wrap around and kinda push the extra together over my fingernail and its stuck will NOT come off for the rest of the show till i take it off. It prevents blisters and still has amazing feel. HIGHLY RECOMEND!! Dont let blisters turn infectious! Prevent them with this tape!

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!!!

    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.

    Comments about Vater Stick and Finger Tape:

    They tape does its job with some problems. Once you apply the tape, and start playing, it starts to slide down the stick. You got to anchor it with some tape or something so it doesn't go anywhere. And if you lose the end of it on the roll, sometimes it is impossible to pull up. It isn't sticky tape, it just mends to itself, so if you try to pull the end off so you can use it, sometimes it gets stuck and you'l never be able to pull it up again.

    Comments about Vater Stick and Finger Tape:

    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!

      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.

          Comments about Vater Stick and Finger Tape:

          These tapes are awesome they make your sticks very grippy, also the tape provides awesome feel when you are playing, The tape is pretty good for gospel when there is a lot of slow songs when you need to make a rising sound on the cymbal and also when you need to do some cross sticking. I would Highly recommend it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          Comments about Vater Stick and Finger Tape:

          I applied this tape to my sticks and before a song ended, it slipped down to the end. Like socks that won't stay up. I even tried sanding the varnish off the stick with the same result. I like Pro Mark Stick Rapp. Don't buy this.

          vater stick tape

          By alex koleber

          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.
