    They idea is outstanding. I've only used it once to change out a head. Worked fine and I'll use it more. The only downside is that it could be a little longer.

        Comments about Revolution Fire Fly Dynamic Tuning Device Gearless Ratchet Drum Key:

        Here is whats great about this key, When you are doing crisscross tuning of your lugs then just us your finger tips to tension each rode and feel the pressure as well has the tone of the head at each lug. This allows you to have even tension all the way around your drum. I don't need a expensive tuning device when I have this Key.

          Comments about Revolution Fire Fly Dynamic Tuning Device Gearless Ratchet Drum Key:

          I bought this drum key when another one I wanted was on back order and I have been impressed with it. The key is very cleverly designed and allows an efficient motion when changing heads. Works well when just tuning up as well. A nice addition for home or road use.

            This is the last drum key I will ever buy, I'm going
            To buy another one. For my other hand so I can
            Use the two key method. The only thing faster
            Is a drill with a drum key Bit.

              Comments about Revolution Fire Fly Dynamic Tuning Device Gearless Ratchet Drum Key:

              I've used several ratchet drum keys in the past. This one is a completely different (and effective) concept. The key relies on an internal gear setup, versus a typical ratchet setup. This allows you to make even the smallest of adjustments without being limited by traditional ratchet mechanisms. Very interesting and effective concept. I was originally skeptical, but it turned out to be worth every penny.

              I bought this with a slight feeling that it might be more of a novelty item, but it turned out to be better than that. A useful item for sure as it does help to change heads faster (a drill bit drum key is still better though). Overall, it's a cool item to have, but a little pricey.

                  Comments about Revolution Fire Fly Dynamic Tuning Device Gearless Ratchet Drum Key:

                  The Firefly Dynamic Tuning Device caught my eye initially because it had a super cool look so I went ahead and bought it although I already own about 6 drum keys. Right off the bat I concluded the Firefly was the best drum key I ever used. Unlike traditional rachet drum keys this thing glides on some kind of bearing making precise tuning fast and dead accurate since you don't have to automatically tune to the closest click. This could easily cost much more. I highly recommend it to any drummer and would buy it again!

                  In my oppinion this is the Best, most efficient tuning device or drum key on the market. It's easy to use, but also built in a way that you can be intricate with your tuning. I've been in a bind before where I needed to change a head in the middle of a set. I used the firefly key in that situation, and had the head changed in between songs. No prob with the ratchet style turning. So simple, but so awsome! I highly recommend this product! You won't be sorry!

                  Comments about Revolution Fire Fly Dynamic Tuning Device Gearless Ratchet Drum Key:

                  I bought the 1.0 the day it hit stores and have been a fan of all Revolution products since. The Firefly is a staple in my bag whether I am in a session or on a gig. Its great for quick head changes, fine tuning and anything requiring precision. It's also really comfortable to use when torquing up a snare drum or adjusting a memory lock. Doesn't hurt your fingers like most other keys.

                  It's also really easy to see in a dimly lit club. Which, was a great upgrade. The 1.0 was black and tough to fish out out your bag or spot on the floor but this one is bright red and sticks out quite well!

                  Buy this key if you would like to replace every noisy ratchet key, impractical drill bit key, tiny uncomfortable key, etc. with only one.
