    I used them while playing my Taylor and had the same problem with them tearing, but the good news is, there is a Baby Taylor now on the way...:p

    Sorry, but such a goofy product deserves goofy jokes:D

    I remember someone telling me to put superglue on my fingertips when I was first starting out.

    Brian Adams could have used these back in '69.

    I went from piano to electric bass. For a year or so I was on Roto Tru-Bass then Roto RS77 flats. The flats were high tension for a kid so I was advised by the knowledgeable Paterfamilias to soak my fingertips in a bowl of vinegar and some salt to ease the throbbing ache. It did dry out the blisters .

    If I'd had a bad blistering, I'd steep them and not play next day but lightly sand the blisters and they did toughen up.

    That same year in Music Class, I chose to study on a 1/2 size upright. Now, that's when the real pain and callousess started!!

  18. How come no one posted a link to buy them? That’s just not fair. If I can drop cash on a big amp my wife only uses every February 29, then I defiantly need a set of these.
