personaly, i don't think gloves are the answer. i've tryed gloves before and they just feel confining. you don't get a natural feel when you're holding the sticks, and ... what if you forget your gloves at a gig? your screwed. i think it's better to treat the blisters and let them turn into caluses. as for the tape, i do that all the time, but i think it's better to wrap your fingers instead of the stick, if at all possible.
do what it is that you love, and love what it is that you do.
