    Comments about Gibraltar Standard Drum Key:

    This does exactly what you need it to. I bought this key to put on my lanyard because I kept forgetting mine in my pocket and sending it through the washing machine. When it's on a key ring though, it has little movement.

                      Like a wrench for your toolbox, this drum key does the job. I know they have more expensive ones but if you're tightening or loosening your drums, this is all you need.

                      Get it if you're in the market for a drum key.

                        I purchased a drum set for my grandson as a gift and needed back up drum keys in case he looses one. This was sturdy , reasonable and what so needed.

                          Comments about Gibraltar Standard Drum Key:

                          I've been drumming for 35 years. I've traveled the world in search of a tool that would be easier to use than needle nose pliers to tighten my drum lugs. I could never understand why they made them the shape they did. Finally, my search is over1 I'm so glad I stumbled upon this Gibraltar drum key. What used to take hours now takes minutes, even seconds. Plus I can finally tighten as much as I want, I don't have the loose edges because I could only tighten so much with the needle nose pliers before they slipped off without being tight enough.

                          You know I'm kidding right? It's a drum key. Does what it's supposed to do and yes, I have used them my whole life!

                                              Look folks, this is a standard drum key. What kind of glowing review do you expect? It does what it's supposed to and is made of metal so it won't snap in half on you. I gave it a 5 because I'd be har pressed to thin of something to complain about in a drum key. I'm a bass player, not a drummer; however I've got a set of Ludwig drums in my garage I picked up used so my drummer can jam without having to haul his kit to my house. I can set the kit up, break it down, and hold a steady 4/4 rhythm pattern. That's the extent of my drumming skills.
