Gig Gear is excited to announce that it has added drummer Claudio Galinski to its artist roster. Galinski is the drummer of New York-based modern swing rock band Americano.
Galinski wears his Gig Gloves during set up and tear down at his band’s gigs to protect his most important musical assets: his hands.
“Protecting my hands is a priority to me as they are the essential tools of my trade,” Galinski said. “A lot of times when handling equipment with your bare hands you get a lot of nicks, cuts, scratches, pinches along with dirt and grease. It takes a while to heal, and it's very uncomfortable to play.”
Galinski’s Gig Gloves provide him with a better grip while handling heavy equipment like amps, monitors and stage lights — and they help out during those cold New York winters.
“I keep one pair in my car at all times and use them on a daily basis,” Galinski said. “In the wintertime, I don't go out without them. They keep me warm! And with the new THERMO line of Gig Gloves, winter just got a lot easier to deal with.”
