The Galaxy FT-1 Finger Protector™ is provided to help Musicians with injured finger tips. It is not a cheap rubber glove type protector you see online or in guitar stores.

Our FT-1 is the only musical finger protector that is designed to lesson pain from an injury by removing most of the pressure at the finger tip, displacing it around the sides.

Even Doctors that are musicians with finger injuries are our customers. Put our 19 years of experience in musical finger tip protection to work for you. The FT-1 is not a medical device, it is a musical accessory & will last you years. It increases the speed of hammer on's & can develop a unique vibrato. Read Client testimonials below.

2015: I'm really impressed with this product after an injury like mine. Loosing part of two of my fingers is not a good thing so playing the guitar again is like a rebirth for me! The adaptation process is fast. The Galaxy FT-1 Ultra Flex fits perfectly but you have to be patient to get used to them, but of course, it is the solution. Thank's to the Galaxy staff for their attention in every moment I needed.
Greetings from Spain!
Raúl Buil Nasarre. Professional Guitarist.
This is a re-order. I am currently on my second FT-1 and it is still in good shape, but I want to have a spare on hand.
Thanks for the great product. It allows me to play. Without it I would not be able to. Please send a flesh tone color.
Steve Hartley. Westminster, California.
I was repairing a piece of electronic gear, trying to remove some epoxy from a circuit board, the razor blade slipped; slicing into my fingertip, and out the other side through my fingernail. It took more than a month to heal back together. I've been playing the guitar for over ten years. After my finger healed back together I found it hard to fret with that finger. For the first time in ten years, I could no longer play the guitar, this was devastating. I've been playing in a band for two years & were in the middle of tracking my guitar parts for our first record. I was literally losing sleep wondering if playing guitar was gone forever. I discovered the Galaxy FT-1 on line. I was a bit skeptical, but willing to try anything to be able to play the guitar again. I started to fret and strum, although it felt quite foreign, I realized instantly that there was no pain. I felt this certainly was a step in the right direction. Now the FT-1 is truly an extension of my own finger, minus the pain. I can fret, bend notes, sweep arpeggios just like before. Thank you so much Galaxy for giving me my music career back.
Grant Ostergard. Dallas, Texas.
I was playing guitar for about one year when I accidentally had the tips of my left middle and ring fingers chopped off in a lawn mower accident. Even though I was not an accomplished player, I was excited and pleased with the progress I was making with the guitar. I had a skin graft done. To this day, the pain continues to exist especially in the winter.
The pain can persist up to an hour. Obviously, I was devastated that I could not play guitar anymore. I was determined to find a way to play again. I put band aids on my fingers with the hope that the cushion would protect my injury and soften the pain. I realized this would not work. There is no plastic surgery for this injury and I was hesitating to take medication.
My injured fingers could not grip the strings. I have been an avid Black Sabbath fan and knew that Tony Iommi had a serious injury to the same fingers that I did. Tony is left handed, he injured two of his fret fingers. My Google search led me to Galaxy Guitar Products. I saw that there was an affordable product available, I eagerly purchased two of the FT-1's for myself. I had a difficult time moving my two fingers around. My injured fingers were always bumping into one another. After a month, I became very use to the FT-1's more and more. Now, the feeling I have with the FT-1s is very natural. I feel blessed that I have another opportunity to play again. Without this product I would not be able to play the guitar period. Thanks to everyone at Galaxy Guitar Products!

Hey Galaxy! Thanks for the finger extension (protector). It works great! Already getting used to a normal length middle finger.
Vaughn Balchunas. Bellingham, Washington.
Galaxy, Thanks! Works great, I'm back in the saddle again!
Edward J Hines. Edward Hines Music, Wendell, Massachusetts.
I want to thank you Galaxy for the FT-1 Protector. With 4 sold out 2014 New Years shows and a badly cut finger the outlook was bleak. The Galaxy FT-1 worked great and the shows went on. Was I at 100%? No but I could play enough not to have cancelled. The 10,000 people over 4 days thank you as well. I'd love to write a testimonial for your site if I could, Thanks Again.
Rob Eaton. Dark Star Orchestra.
When I was 19, in 1979, I worked digging holes for swimming pools with a large Caterpillar shovel dozer. After a hot day of work and a few beers, while trying to trailer the beast, my left index finger got pinched between a track and a large chain link. Needless to say, the end of my finger was crushed and left very sensitive. When I was 33 I had my right shoulder "Fused" into the socket after smashing it to smithereens. I became a lawyer at age 50. As a reward to myself, I decided to take up guitar this year at 53. I bought a Fender Telecaster Thinline semi-hollow body for myself at Christmas. I was concerned about both my shoulder and my finger. The shoulder is not a problem, but the finger is so sensitive I can't play, or so I thought. Along comes a God send, the Galaxy FT-1 Finger Protector. This thing is awesome! It fits perfectly on my finger and the engineering is so precise and well done that I can actually play my guitar-without pain! Awesome!!

On January 13, 2014 in a freak accident while hitching up our travel trailer, I amputated my left index finger just above the base of my fingernail. I play banjo, guitar and mandolin, so needless to say I was totally distraught fearing that I would never be able to play again. I began researching finger prosthetic's on the internet and found Galaxy Guitars and the FT-1 finger protector. After reading all the testimonials, I was concerned that they were all written by men and wondered if it would work for female sized fingers as well. I called and spoke with a tech about the FT-1. He was very supportive and helpful and spent so much time talking with me and answering all my questions. I immediately ordered one even though I knew it would be quite a while before my finger was healed enough to try it. Even though my finger is still tender, I could wait no longer. I put it on for the first time on March 10th and after only 3 evenings of 20 minutes sessions, I am able to hit all my old licks on the banjo and with no pain! I have also worked a little with the guitar and mandolin with equal success. I am so pleased after only 3 sessions with the FT-1 that I have ordered a second one. My husband and I play bluegrass professionally, but we play out of passion for the music. While I could have lived with the thought of never “performing” again, the thought of never playing again was devastating. Now I know that it will be music as usual! THANK YOU GALAXY GUITARS FOR THE FT-1!!!
Sue Davis. Macon, Georgia.
Hello, I ordered the Galaxy FT-1 Finger Protector a couple of weeks ago. When I first opened the package, it did not fit my finger which was quite the bummer since I had not been able to play my guitar in over a year after loosing 1/2 inch of my ring finger in an accident at work. After reading the instructions, I removed the leather grip from inside the tip. After pushing to get it on my finger even a little, I proceeded to try and play my guitar. What happened next brought a smile to my face that has not left yet. I could play my guitar!!!! After a few weeks of practicing, I have regained most of my playing skills. Now I am going to record some of the 100 plus songs that I have written over the last 25 years! I am going to give a serious go at becoming a country songwriter. You never know how much you take something for granted until you lose it. I will not take music for granted ever again!!! Thank You Galaxy from the bottom of my heart for giving me another chance to play again!!!
