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.

      Comments about DrumDial Drum Tuner:

      Bought the DrumDial as recommended by Guitar Center. It has been a long time since I've played my drum set professionally. I have a beautiful Yamaha Recording Custom set, but they've been sitting there doing nothing for over 21 years. The heads are the originals and over 26 years old. Needless to say, the set sounded horrible, way out of tune and were yucky to play. You get the idea.

      Tuning the drums with the DrumDial took the work out of tuning the drums and brought life back to the set! It makes tuning the set so easy and brought the natural sound back to the set. And yes, you bet - I can't wait to put all new skins on the set. Thank you Guitar Center and DrumDial for bringing my set back to life!!!

      I use this on my banjo and it takes a lot of guess work out of tightening the head.

                  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!!

                  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

                  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.
