Do you have dry hands when playing? The Vic Firth DoubleGlaze 5A drumsticks are designed to tackle this problem, without affecting your groove. That means you retain the feel of the stick, something you lose when wearing gloves. The glaze finish is a down-the-middle solution, it's not the most sticky solution. But, it's comfortable and has minimal effect on your playing, while providing grip for your dry hands! No more sticks flying away mid-set.
