Overview

DrumDial quickly and precisely tunes all drums by accurately measuring drumhead tension, not tension rod torque. Tension rod torque can be used to tell you when you are over-tightening a bolt to prevent thread damage, but is not accurate for drum tuning because of the difference in screw tolerances, plating, corrosion, and thread wear.

You can eliminate these problems by using a DrumDial to measure drumhead tension directly from the drumhead, allowing you to precisely tune your drums faster and easier than ever before. DrumDial has been designed and manufactured to the highest quality standards with all the key features you would expect from the best drum tuner available.

I have 4 sets and 6 snares. Since I gig on a regular basis this devise has saved me hours of tuning by ear. One I have a drum tuned to the sound I want I can duplicate that tuning every time....My drums have never sounded so good. It took a little while to get familiar with the device. But with the tuning being done on the head instead of on the lug method, it shows me when a head is also defective. Which is something you can't always tell out of the box. Very useful product. I would recommend any starting drummer to learn by ear first, then use a dial. I wish I had bought one much sooner.

          Helped me get better with my tuning. I use it in conjunction with my 'ears' to get drums tuned.

          This tool is perfect if you don't want to rely on the variance of hand tuning. My new heads were tuned with the dial today and they sound great. Great Tool!!

          This does work...

          Comments about DrumDial Drum Tuner:

          Been playing for many years and hate tuning. Everybody says you have to do it by ear, but this works better - in most cases - than tuning by ear. I've used lug clutches and tensioners over the years and have never been satisfied with any tuning tool until now. This does work and I recommend it to anyone who doesn't have their own drum tech. If you do have a tech, but them one as a gift.

          Concise, Practical, and Fairly Accurate

          By

          Comments about DrumDial Drum Tuner:

          I've tried several market tuners and the DD is, by far, the easiest and most accurate tuner for drums. It's ability to check the timpanic pressure gives you a more accurate reading. It isn't always exact, but it is a very useful tool to get you close to fine-tuning quickly. I subtracted a star simply because it isn't as accurate as I'd like it to be. Often, I fine-tune to set the head in tune with itself. All in all a great product and I'd recommend this tuner for anyone wanting a timpanic pressure tuner.

          I didn't expect much from this product but it turned out to be amazing! I have owned this product for a week now. This works like a charm and looks cool too! I tuned my batter and resonant heads for my snare and I was amazed! It sounded 100 times better than before. It's a bit bulky so travelling in your pocket won't work... Other than that its a decent product!

          I just got this from a Guitar Center and it's amazing. I tuned the batter and resonant heads of my snare and I was stunned by the sound! It sounded 100% better than before. It only took me about 5 minutes because of how easy it is to use. I recommend this to any drummer.

          Great Tuner. Takes guess work out on difficult drums.

          Comments about DrumDial Drum Tuner:

          This tuner is quite accurate and has the added advantage of silent tuning. It does take patience since you must place the gauge using the included bracket, parallel to each lug and adjust the tension (using the guide for approximate settings for different drum sizes) appropriately. I own a recording studio with several drum kits and and a constant flow of drummers, including myself using and re tuning the kits. The Drum Dial makes it easy for me, my assistants and the players to re tune or change heads quickly and accurately.
