Perhaps useful if you are a drum tech, assembling and tuning kits all day. For me, someone who changes a head a couple of times each year, or tunes the kits occasionally, I didn't find it helpful.

    Comments about Gibraltar Drill Bit drum key:

    I use this at home with a drill. I don't take it out gigging as it's too easy to lose. It works extremely well and changing head (even on bass drums) is a breeze.

                              I haven't had to use it I'm an emergency yet but I'm sure I have no worries. I used it while I repainted my old drumset and it worked great.

                                        Obviously not for fine tuning, but great time saver if you have to change out multiple drum heads. I use it with a mini Black & Decker cordless screwdriver/drill. Not sure how comfortable it would be with a full size drill.

                                            Used with a torque setting of 5 removing your heads will be a snap. Set on 2 to replace the new heads, then tune with a drum key. It even fits standard interchangeable ratchet screw drivers. You've checked it out so buy it, you won't be sorry.

                                                This is a must have for those playing and maintaining their own drum kit. It is so easy to use. Of course you must have power tool to use this with.

                                                  Great, simple product. Hopefully this will be the only one I'll ever need.

                                                  Works faster than the Speed Key and certainly much faster than a traditional drum.

                                                  The only one caveat I have, though, is never use it to tighten tuning rods since you could damage either the lug or the head. You can use it to get the rod down to the contact point on the rim, but then after that finish it by hand.

                                                  Makes getting the head off a piece of cake though.
