But the wood wont get any marks from rimshots or cymbals. The tape are. So you just have to rewrap your sticks sometimes and you are good to go...
I´m a Swedish fourteen year old so my english is what it is...
I used to do this all the time but i ended up having to clean up bits of tape off the floor, from between the hoops and the heads and having to clean tape residue off my cymbals all the time, it's a shame it's so messy because sticks last forever when you do it.
