Protection for Guitar Players
Do your fingers hurt from playing guitar?
Improve Performance and Technique While You Protect Your Fingers
-Learning to play guitar is easier & more pleasurable without the pain experienced when not using finger protection.
– Its no longer necessary for calluses to form to enjoy guitar playing.
-Playing chords and individual notes are easier because you can apply greater pressure on the guitar strings to give you clear tones without the discomfort.
-You will be able to slide your fingers smoothly on the strings.
-Start performing more advanced techniques sooner such as bends and pull offs with far less discomfort.
-Make the eventual transition from tender fingers to calluses without the level of sore finger pain associated with unprotected fingers on steel guitar strings. With regular practice over time finger tips will still toughen up.

Comfort for Your Fingers
Original Guitar Fingers and Guitar Gloves provide comfort and breathable protection for your fingers from abrasion that can result in painful blisters, cracked skin and open sores caused by excessive playing of string instruments like a guitar, banjo, mandolin or sitar. You will still enjoy unobstructed guitar playing and clean execution. This is the preferred remedy of choice.
In the past musicians had to endure the pain and discomfort, until gradually the tips of the fingers would toughen over time with increased guitar practice. Our guitar fingers and gloves are a solution for new or casual guitar player’s problem with sore or painful fingers. You need to practice to become a good guitar player to develop your playing skills and to toughen your tender finger tips to endure the continuous pressure, due to manipulating the strings of your guitar with your finger tips. To cope with this continuing finger pain the skin gradually becomes irritated and as this heals the finger tips become callused.
If you do not keep up with your guitar practice, then the calluses on your finger tips will eventually soften, resulting in more hurting and pain when you start to play guitar or practice in the future, unless you use appropriate finger protection to cover and shield your fingertips.
Our guitar fingers and guitar gloves protect your fingertips from these problems, so that you can play a little or a lot and not get sore and blistered finger tips, like you would if you played your guitar with bare unprotected fingers. Calluses will eventually develop on your fingers when using our guitar fingers and guitar gloves but it will happen more gradually over time and it will not hurt your fingers like you might expect, if you were to play your guitar with bare fingers.
Some of our customers use our gloves and guitar fingers to protect their fingers from the effects of allergies, including nickel allergy and psoriasis. Some people find them to be a helpful remedy to cope with the discomfort and stress of arthritis or past injuries to their fingertips.
Original Guitar Fingers and Guitar Gloves are a safe breathable non chemical remedy for fingertip pain. Some people actually put krazy glue or super glue on their finger tips. Others have used suture glue but long term use of the topical skin adhesive, cyanoacrylate (suture glue) may result in localized sensitization or irritation reactions. (1) Skin sensitization is an allergic reaction to a particular irritant that results in the development of skin inflammation and itchiness. Unlike normal skin irritation, the skin becomes increasingly reactive to the sensitizing substance as a result of subsequent exposures.
Some other products will not slide smoothly on the guitar strings. Other products made of silicon, plastic or rubber are not breathable, so the fingers will become sweaty and uncomfortable after a short time.
