does anyone know a good way to prevent getting blisters from the sticks? i play drums in a pretty heavy metal band, and after every practice i walk out with my fingers all tore up from blisters (popped and unpopped), so does anyone know a good way to prevent this?

Blisters are a part of being a drummer. As long as you don't play to the point of them bleeding, you'll be alright. The same thing used to happen to me all the time. I used to get killer blisters on my index fingers, my palms, and on the insides of my other fingers from switching finger grips. Now there's a thin layer of callus over my hand so I don't get blisters anymore. I guess you just gotta deal with them till you adapt.

Put Neosporin on them! It helps alot ,but keep at it coz you need to form those calluses! the more you play the better you get ,The better you get the easier it is to play. The easier it is to play, the more you learn! I call it the snowball effect GOD Bless!
