Tech Tip:Use Duct Tape To Improve Your Grip
No drummer should ever be without his or her duct tape. This incredibly stick, tough gray tape is not only useful for emergency repairs, it can also provide a better grip on your sticks. Peel off a short amount of duct tape and roll it into a ball, sticky side out, then roll it around in your hands. Toss the ball of tape, and the tacky coating left on your hands will help you grip your sticks in the heat of battle. Just remember to wash your hands after playing.
