    Comments about Pearl Drum Key:

    When I got this key I was currently using a DW Key, so I thought I might as well by another key just in case one goes missing. Turns out I was very impressed with this key. The key was larger in size then expected which was a good thing, it was easier to hold on too. Highly recommended.

    Cons

    Best Uses

    • For All Drum Set Tuning

    Comments about Pearl Drum Key:

    It is important how your drum key feels in your hand and in your pocket or whether or not it slips nicely into your stick bag pocket. You may only have a standard drum key and you may have to change a head quickly. I don't recommend having only one key whereas a ratchet type is faster but if you don't have one handy two keys are better for a fast head change and tuning.
    If your key is too small, has rough edges, is too bulky or is poor quality you will have a tougher time tuning as well as changing heads.
    Your drum is a handy tool and I think of mine as almost a friend. The Pearl Drum Key Regular 448701 feels good in my hand and is just the right size to be an asset to me when I need it. That's why I ordered 3!

    Comments about Pearl Drum Key:

    After a short time, the actually split after tuning my multi-tenor drums...the metal cracked in half! For drumset this would be ok, but not for marching drums at all.

    Comments about Pearl Drum Key:

    Obviously, with a product as simple as this one, there are no "cons' but all "pros"

    modestly priced, effective. nothing to complain about, really no room for error

    Pearl Drum Key

    By 

    from Kansas

    Comments about Pearl Drum Key:

    It's a drum key and it works.
    Okay it is just a drum key. But $4 from Musicians Friend is a really friendly price. Oh and free shipping. I have had maybe 4 drum keys in my life and they all do what they are supposed to do. .

    Folks..it's a drum key.

    By 

    from Poughkeepsie NY

    Comments about Pearl Drum Key:

    I got this key with a snare drum I bought and it works. A key is a key no matter if it's a Pulse, or this overpriced one. Get whatever cheap key you can. I have no name keys that do the same job. Don't let Pearl get extra dollars out of you just cause their name is in big Letters and it has a fancy design.

    only drum key that i have ever stripped

    By 

    from rochester, ny

    Comments about Pearl Drum Key:

    I have been playing drums for 6 and a half years now, and my first snare was a steel shell Pearl that came in a pack with that tuning key. After about a year, the key stripped, and I have well over 20 keys around my house. I have never stripped another. I would have to say this product is crap.

    This has never given me trouble before. I like it. But it is as good as any drum key. It doesn't matter what one you get.
