Vater helps the modern drummer get the most out of his sticks with Stick Shield. Easy to apply, adhesive backed protective sleeve for the “rimshot” area of drumsticks. The Stick Shield is a highly impact resistant material, 8X stronger than steel with maximum tensile strength, designed to protect the vulnerable rimshot area from chipping, fraying, and weakening, greatly extending the durability of the stick. Universal fit makes any stick stronger and last longer.
Remove adhesive backing and place Stick Shield squarely on the stick in the rimshot area (we recommend 6 3/4 to 7 1/4” from the butt-end of the stick). Pressing firmly as you go, slowly roll the Stick Shield around the stick, overlapping at the end. Remove backing from seam tape and apply firmly to the seam of the Stick Shield. After Stick Shield and Seam Tape are in place, firmly press around the sleeve to ensure adhesion.
