Golf gloves, batter's gloves, etc etc.

How hard are you playing man? I don't play drums, but I've filled in for more than an hour at a friend's gig, without any injuries to speak of.

Agreed (to dustnbones316)

I also wrap hockey tape on my hands where the blisters normally form - it prevents it and you don't notice the tape there - plus the added grip of the hockey tape (this can be a bit messy to take off after a long session though)

Cheers

the tape idea sounds great i think i'll give that a try

would wraping the sticks in tape help


Probably not, because then the tape would probably rub against your hands, and hockey tape isn't exactly softer than a baby's bottom.

Tape on the hands should be perfect though.
