      Comments about Gibraltar High Torque Drum Key:

      Well, I ordered this because I couldn't find the one that came with my DW 9000 hi hat, and of course the very next day I found it!! But that's fine because this one is everything the DW key is, minus the plastic coating, and as every drummer knows, you can NEVER have too many keys. This high torque key is solid, well made and should last a lifetime, that is if I don't lose it! ;)

        Comments about Gibraltar High Torque Drum Key:

        I wish I had ordered this key a long time ago. I use Yamaha drums and a mix of Yamaha and Pearl hardware. This key fits anything. Makes all adjustments effortless....especially tuning my snare drums. The "cons" category above certainly doesn't apply...there are none. "Best uses"...for me...turned out to be "all". The rest of my keys have now been retired. But...I still might order 1 or 2 more. We're all familiar with the phenomenon of the vanishing drum key. But for now I keep one in my gig bag...and one at my practice/studio space. Awesome product. Thank you.

              I hate those typical small ones. they keep popping out of my hand and falling into the twilight zone. I wanted something larger that would be easier to hold and find on the floor if I drop it. It's easier to hold. It's made of industrial-strength metal. It's shiny. It tunes your drums. It doesn't cost much. If you don't like it you can always give it to your mom for her birthday.

                  the best drum key I have ever found... feels good in your hand, doesn't get lost in your stick bag... funny how happy a simple, well-made tool can make a drummer feel...

                  Excellent, hi-torque key for drumset

                  By Barjack

                  from Portland, Ore

                  Comments about Gibraltar High Torque Drum Key:

                  This is a heavy duty key, about 4" long and very heavy in weight. The added reach and hte long crossbar makes it easy to precision tune a snare at higher pitch, which is how I play most of my snare drums. The square taper hole is cut well, and fits snugly on the tuning rods unlike both my Pearl keys. Good deal!

                  excellent

                  Comments about Gibraltar High Torque Drum Key:

                  Expanding drumset - been adjusting for hours! This thing has SAVED MY FINGERS. Especially useful for ROGERS swiv-o-matic hardware where EVERYTHING is square headed - this allows a little more torque WITHOUT hardware damage or pain. Also the extra length lets you get into those fittings where it was virtually impossible with other keys. In addition the extra length will tighten the bottom head on earlier (Square-framed rim brace) Rogers DYNASONIC snare drums. I'm ordering some more!

                  Not What I Expected

                  from Fort Valley, GA

                  Comments about Gibraltar High Torque Drum Key:

                  This is suppose to be a TORQUE key? I expected it to be a lot bigger but it is just taller and just as hard to turn when you have high tension applications. The picture really exaggerates the key. Not a good buy for high tension tuning.

                  Great Drum Key!

                  Comments about Gibraltar High Torque Drum Key:

                  This is an AMAZING drum key for both high-tension drums (i.e. marching drums, some piccilo snares) and fast head changes. I'd definitely recommend it to any Drumliners or those in need of fast head changes.
