    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.

          Comments about Gibraltar Drill Bit drum key:

          I use it for Maintenance on my drums. It can be used with portable electric drill/ screwdriver. (I wouldn't recommend power tool for reinstalling, but ratcheting screwdriver or a T wrench works well).

                                                    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.
