Default Stick Grip?

Hello I was curious if any of you knew of a product that you could dip the end of your drum stick into that would dry and leave you with a grip on it, such as the grip tape etc.
I know you can buy sticks that have it on it for a price, but was curious if there was a cheap product out there at say Home Depot etc....

Thanks.

Hey! Yes, I have your answer. Zildjian stick wax. I have been using it for about 3 years now, and I am completely addicted.

Here's a dip that GRUNTERSDAD shared a few years back. It's pretty cool, but I chose to wrap with tennis overgrip. Excellent results as well.

I reccomend Vater's Nude series.

In my opinion wraps, dips, and all that mess interfere with the balance of the stick. And I would never touch a pair of drum gloves.

I used to have a real issue with stick slips because I sweat A LOT when I play, and my hands always get wet with it. Vater's Nudes have no laquer. They're just natural sanded sticks, so you can keep a tight efficient grip on them.

They take some getting used to, because the rough wood is rough on your skin.

I don't know any product in which you dip your sitcks, but you can buy sticks from Vic Firth with a stick grip in most popular sizes.

This is gonna make me sound reaaaal cheap but I just wrapped my own in electric tape. Not the most comfortable tape but it was better than playing with bare sticks. Now I just play with the bare. Dip on the dipped sticks i had always wore away and so did the grip tape. So I eventually quit wasting money and just played em bare or with the electric tape.

You could always try a can of Stick Grip. I have used it and it does work, although you need to reapply fairly often.

Another vote for Cater non laquered sticks, but Sex Wax do a drum stick wax. Out of interest how are you holding your sticks, palm down?
