im sitting here unable to drum because i have a huge blister on my right forefinger.
I got it on thursday, and i tryed drumming today thinging it was healed, but it just ripped the skin away and then ripped away the healing skin underneath that! And it hurt! Cry

usally, when im on my proper kit, im hyped up enough to just play though the pain, but this is on my little yamaha DD-55 pads, and it dosnt give the same adrenilyn (sp?) that a big, loud kit does. And it hurts a lot.

So what do i do to make the blisters stop? i dont want to wear gloves too often because they are just anoying to keep taking on and off.

And how long does it take before your skin gets the idea, and starts to toughen up?

(i guess it doesnt help i have Dipped sticks)

There is nothing original here, - I was talking about "tape"...

Personally I hate drum gloves because I dont feel the drumsticks in my hands, as good as I feel them wile I am holding the drum sticks with my bare hands.
And that is not the case when using tape! - Not only you feel the drumsticks in your hands as good as holding them barehanded, I get a better grip, while my fingers are wrapped with the tape.

I only cover 3 fingers on the "problematic" places, but the hard part of all this is to find a "good", "workable" tape.
If interested I will give you descriptions, product name and company name, or even mail you a sample, so you will be able to find a decent one. Wink

i used to get a blister always on my right pointer finger.  but i put a band aid on it and after it healed, it just turned into a callus.  i play my drums a lot, and i've never really had a problem with blisters.  but sometimes if i play for more than a half hour (i normally play like in 10 minute periods or so about 5 or 6 times throughout the day) my fingers start to get a little red.

There are a number of medical, surgical tapes and slip on finger socks etc.   Super glue works for cuts.

Super glue? are you serious? I would rather play through the pain and blood than putting super glue in cuts! I dont know what is in that stuff that could get in my blood. :-/

Super Glue for cuts...

VERY INTERESTING !!! Shocked

We will have to test it of-course, before it will become the official method...

Any volunteers out there ? 8-)

Myself, I don't know I guess if I thought I really required to keep something closed and it was an important enough gig to me I would probably try it.  However it really has to be some kind of cut cause although I am no John Wayne I don't whine too much.  Their has been a couple of people who actually told me they have done just that.  I could be wrong but I believe one of them was a drummer named Casey.

I used gloves a couple of times when I first got my Congas. The first night I used them with a band I thought my hands were broken for ever.  They were not miked! But it didn't take too long before I learned how to stike them properly and my hands toughfened up a bit as well and the gloves were gone.

I guess if your real desperate, super glue could be a choice, but i not gonna put a bottle in my bag ready for the situation. Maybe duct tape would work too.

Oh, and ive been using that tape for a little while now, and it works a charm, thanks  Smiley

Ok sorry guys I have just one more.  My wife is an Artist, sculpts, paints and all that.  While making these lifelike father Christmas dolls she found this stuff in a medical supply place.  The stuff  steretches in all directions and adheres to itself comes in different sizes but can be cut to fit.  It's wierd stuff but cool.  No she didn't remember what it was called.
