I apologize for my terrible grammar. I’m typing on my phone, and the BuzzFeed app is a bit wonky. Happy Holidays!
(This is the director, Ryan Guth) Kris is right! We also wear to protect our hand when we do certain techniques, and such as “martelatto” or slamming the bell into the padded tables. “Marting” with no gloves can tear your skin apart. Also, the gloves absorb sweat so you don’t lose your grip. The bass bells are over $1000 each, so it would be a tradegy to drop one. Glad you all liked it!
