> > > Vader products for forthcoming summer season

Summer shows can be hot, sweaty and uncomfortable. Vater have thought about that and come up with a few suggestions for some inexpensive products that will make those shows a bit more comfortable for you and help keep you on top of your game.

Nude Series Drumsticks


These unfinished sticks leave a comfortable sanded grip that is perfect to prevent drumsticks from slipping from sweaty hands during a performance. Available in 5A, 5B, Power 5B, 1A, Fusion™ , Universal and 3A.

Tacky Sack Grip Enhancer



A grip enhancing rosin powder that absorbs moisture and provides added control of your drumsticks while performing in humid and sweaty conditions.

“Once again, Vater knows just what I need, even before I do. Especially in intense, sweaty environments, Tacky Sack allows me to lose myself in the vibe of a song without worrying if I’m going to send a stick flying from my palms. My grip relaxes, and I’m better able to avoid carpal tunnel-like problems. Tacky Sack lets me thrash with complete control.” – Jay Weinberg [Slipknot]

The Vater Tacky Sack is exactly the kind of product I’ve been looking for to help keep my hands dry at humid outdoor shows. The powder keeps my hands dry without affecting the feel of the sticks. I don’t even notice it’s there.” – Gil Sharone [Marilyn Manson]
