      OVERVIEW

      Makes tuning easier.

      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.

      FEATURES
      • No whacking necessary to tune your drums
      • Accurate and quick

      Get those skins in tune, and save money doing it. Put it in the cart.

      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.

          always had difficulty tuning my drum sets, I was never good at it. With Drum Dial after watching the videos and determining what tensions I like it is simple and effective. It does take time but the results are perfect. Like it a lot

            I always tuned by ear for fear of having some complex tuning system taking away from my drumming free time. After all, who wants to spend their Saturday morning tuning instead of playing right away? Well I gave this little guy a shot and found it to be so simple to use its stupid! This is literally the simplest way to tune.

                This will set you in the right direction to having a scientifically properly tuned drum set. It won't recognize pitch...that's your ears job...but it will give you an accurate read of the heads tension at the point of the lugs. Takes some patience...but will set you in the right direction to make your drums sing

                    I would seriously recommend this product to anyone and everyone.... If you are tuning by ear as I was, it's not even close.... My drums were so out of tune and now they have depth, tone and power I have never experienced. My new Pearl Music City Customs have so much punch, it's amazing. Next up is my Mapex Saturn Series too.... Again, go buy this product!

                      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.

                            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!
