OVERVIEW

Makes tuning easier.

With the Drumdial Drum Tuner, you can easily and accurately tune your drums without even hitting the drumhead. The Drumdial Drum Tuner uses tympanic pressure instead of tuning with a tension rod torque. With this process, no drumhead hitting is necessary to precisely tune your timpani, rack toms, bass, or snare.

FEATURES
  • No whacking necessary to tune your drums
  • Accurate and quick

Get those skins in tune, and save money doing it. Put it in the cart.

A must for new drums or re-skinning.

Purchased it for my son's new drum set....wish I had one fifty years ago when I started playing.

This is the only drum tuner that I've owned, and it does what I expected. Obviously, it isn't hearing frequencies, but testing tensions, so it will never get the drum as in tune as the ear will. The major issue, I find, is that after getting all of the lugs to matching tensions with the DrumDial, they will not be in tune when played. A pair of lugs across from each other will always produce a higher or lower pitch than the others. I always have to do a bit of tuning afterwards. I tend to use the product to get my drums in a ballpark range of where I want them, which comes in especially useful when switching between genres that demand higher or lower tunings.
It works great to quickly tune a drum to a certain pitch, but without a good ear to do fine tuning, the DrumDial will leave you with drums that don't sound as good as they could.

              From the limited amount I have used it thus far, this device seems to do exactly what it claims, and well. Wish these were around years ago. It makes precise tuning so much easier.

                    always had difficulty tuning my drum sets, I was never good at it. With Drum Dial after watching the videos and determining what tensions I like it is simple and effective. It does take time but the results are perfect. Like it a lot

                      I always tuned by ear for fear of having some complex tuning system taking away from my drumming free time. After all, who wants to spend their Saturday morning tuning instead of playing right away? Well I gave this little guy a shot and found it to be so simple to use its stupid! This is literally the simplest way to tune.
