                Since most kits are "controlled" by a drum key, this ratchet key is an excellent tool for setup and tear down.

                    Love this. I knew it would be good when I saw Gibraltar on it. Much faster to use that traditional keys.

                      Comments about Gibraltar Ratchet Drum Key wrench:

                      I've been using this ratchet now for almost 2 years. While it may not be a portable (can't attach to a key ring, necklace, etc.) as some others, I've found it to be invaluable. It allows me to reach places that are very difficult to reach otherwise without a trip around the kit. You can actually reach all the tension rods on the front of your kick drum and the bottom heads on all of your toms without leaving your throne. Of course, for detailed tuning you're going to want to walk around, but this thing is great for quick tweaks and tight spots. The ratchet switches very easily so it's a quick flick of the thumb to go from tightening to loosening, and it's very stable (doesn't switch without that flick). It's become my go to key.

                          Decent drum key, works great and makes tuning drums/ setting up go by so much faster. Also allows me to reach some small areas on my kick pedal for adjustment while still on the drum.
