OVERVIEW

With the Drumdial Drum Tuner, you can easily and accurately tune your drums without even hitting the drumhead. The Drumdial Drum Tuner uses tympanic pressure instead of tuning with a tension rod torque. With this process, no drumhead hitting is necessary to precisely tune your timpani, rack toms, bass, or snare.

Makes tuning easier.

A must for new drums or re-skinning.

Purchased it for my son's new drum set....wish I had one fifty years ago when I started playing.

This is the only drum tuner that I've owned, and it does what I expected. Obviously, it isn't hearing frequencies, but testing tensions, so it will never get the drum as in tune as the ear will. The major issue, I find, is that after getting all of the lugs to matching tensions with the DrumDial, they will not be in tune when played. A pair of lugs across from each other will always produce a higher or lower pitch than the others. I always have to do a bit of tuning afterwards. I tend to use the product to get my drums in a ballpark range of where I want them, which comes in especially useful when switching between genres that demand higher or lower tunings.
It works great to quickly tune a drum to a certain pitch, but without a good ear to do fine tuning, the DrumDial will leave you with drums that don't sound as good as they could.

    Comments about DrumDial Drum Tuner:

    Like I said in the title, this is a must have for any drummer wanting to get the absolute best sound out of their drums. I have used this drum dial for several years now and went through several heads using it. My drums have always been the same and sounded the same for as long as I've had the drum dial. And by the same I mean amazing. I can take the drum dial and get the same sound out of a completely new head that I had in the old one, in a matter of minutes. You do have to learn how to use it a little and find a sound out of your drums that you like but once you find what you like and you know how to use your drum dial the results will be the same every single time. I am extremely satisfied with this product and I promise you will be too.

      Used this to uniformly tune the head of my new banjo. Unbelievable difference in the brightness of the sound. Extremely easy to use and takes the guess work out of tap tuning.

          Comments about DrumDial Drum Tuner:

          This thing is awesome!! I had a major head change operation after purchasing another set of drums. That's why I purchased the Drum Dial. Something that used to take me forever, was a breeze. You also have the option to change the tones to your liking and record them quickly and easily. Break a head and you can quickly replace it and adjust it to the same tone of your preference. Wish I would have purchased it sooner!

          Comments about DrumDial Drum Tuner:

          If you know absolutely nothing about tuning, don't know what sound you're going for or what each drum is supposed to sound like, or you just want to waste money and own every drum accessory possible, then this is the item for you.

          So I went about 17 years tuning my drums by ear and feel, and thought one day, "maybe I should try a drum tuner." Absolute waste of time and money. If you're a scientist and trying to control the tension of a drumhead for some experiment, this could come in handy. If you want to make music and are looking for a more balanced, controlled drum pitch, this will do you no favors. Trust your ears. They will do a far better job assisting in your drum tuning than this contraption.

              Usually tune by ear so buying this was an added benefit. I was able to get the readings and right them down, remove the head, sand down the bearing edges and reinstall the head and tune it very quickly to the reading I had written down. Took less than an hour for 6 toms and a snare.

                    Bought to tune the head tension on a few banjos. Made an amazing difference to the tone/resonance. Folks in the band and crew that didn't know the work performed earlier in the day came up after the show to comment how much better the banjos sounded in their ears that evening. Definitely worth the money!!
