    Default Do you use Duct Tape or Gaffers Tape

    I tend to be a tape snob and won't use anything but Gaffers. Am I the only one?

    Yeah, it's more expensive but I'll tell you, once you use gaffers and then go back to regular duct tape, it's like going from a Zildjian K Custom to a Camber. No comparison!

    Have never used tape at all, is it any different than moongel or adding a control rings?

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing

    I’ve never tried the gaff tape. Won’t use duct tape cause it’s way too sticky gooey. I use blue or green painters tape.

    Yeah, it's quicker. Gaffers tears easily as it has a thicker cloth weave built in. Through the years, I've used it for drum dampening, holding set lists or cheat notes, temporary fixes like taping a floor tom leg on where a screw stripped, marking the stage when needed for drum positioning, etc. It just works for so many things.

    I use it for taping chords down securely and then it won't hurt my rug or anything else.
