    When I'm out gigging and have to change a head this works really well to get the lugs off and on quickly. It just does what it's supposed to do.

      This drum key is very nice to quickly remove a head. Not as great for precise tuning though. But,I would still recommend this key just for the time saved.

        Comments about Gibraltar SC-4248 Speed Drum Key:

        I was looking for a drum key that wouldn't look like a wing nut and hurt my hand. This drum key works wonders! It is fast and allows more force due to better leverage so just pay attention and be careful not to over tighten.

          Comments about Gibraltar SC-4248 Speed Drum Key:

          Great for when heads need to be removed. also for tightening hardware and such. Not really useful for running, as that requires small adjustments, so in those cases a standard key is the best.

          Best Uses

            Comments about Gibraltar SC-4248 Speed Drum Key:

            The speed key is my mainstay when I need to quickly remove heads or replace them. For fine tuning I use standard keys with the wider heads. I do not torque my heads. The key drops easily due to uneven weight. Not a big deal but I've smacked my head on my snare drum a time or two because of it!

            This speed key will cut your drum head removal and replacement time in half, guaranteed.

            The KEY to head changes

            By KhpDave

            from Middle America

            Comments about Gibraltar SC-4248 Speed Drum Key:

            The Gibraltar SC-4248 Speed Drum Key is, of course, well made and perfectly suited for drummers who change heads often and tune by ear or tension guage. If you fine-tune with a torque key, it may be a slight hassle to swap keys back and forth but for this price, every drummer ought to have one in his or her gear bag.

            Comments about Gibraltar SC-4248 Speed Drum Key:

            Really powerfull key and it's easy to use. Works amazing, but the only down side of the key is that you can't hook it on to your car keys or anything like that.
