I'd venture to say Stewart & Carter are the exception.
Uh-oh.I wore gloves for years. Started in High School and keep up with it really until the last 10 years or so. I still use them when doing gigs with Street Drum Corps, but mainly because they help absorb some shock from the obscene things we are playing on. (Kegs, Oil Drums, Barrels). That's also why we use Ahead drumsticks.
When it comes to kit playing I prefer to feel the stick against my stick.
