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!!
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.
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.
This is the easiest and most accurate method of drum tuning!
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.
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.
i'm really good at tuning my drums by ear, but this saves so much time. i tuned my 7pc in under and hour. i kept record of my tom's tuning number so when or if i have to change a head i know what it should be set at and keep right on playing in no time at all. took me a year to man up and get one...lol. but seriously guys and gals you really want one of these.
Great tool!!!! My kit has never sounded so good! I did not put new heads on it just tuned up the ones that were on it! I suck at tuning by ear so if you do to this is a great tool!!!!!!!
I am a beginner drummer and have a very low cost sound percussion kit that I bought about 8 months ago. Out of the box it sounded horrific. I replaced the stock heads with Remo weatherking heads and they still sounded like junk. I tried to tune them myself but I could never get a good sound. I have always been tone deaf. It was discouraging a lot of times to play because of the sound quality. This tuner brought my kit to life! All of my drums have a great sound and I love playing again. This was worth dishing out the $$ to make my kit sound 100 times better.
