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.

It actually tunes pretty good, at least as close as most normal drummers do.
But the real advantage to this is in recording and having to change heads.
If you keep a log of what your setting are you can not tell a difference in a recording, when you had to replace a head in the middle of it. Now that's a real big deal right there.

      Comments about DrumDial Drum Tuner:

      Not only is this one of the easiest drum tuners to use, the company is AWESOME! There really isn't a set way to tune your drums, it really is more of an art form than it is a science. BUT for beginner drummers or weekend warrior drummers who don't have time to sit and tune each drum by ear the Drum Dial is a savior! I've used the Drum Dial for more than 3 year now and I can get my ALL of my drums tuned in less than an hour. I just decide where I'd like my tuning calibration to be (typically between 74-75) and tune each tension rod to that desired setting. My drums have never sounded more evenly tuned and all of this done within a quick and reasonable time. The moment I had a problem with my Drum Dial (after several year of use), I contacted the number on the inside instructional and immediately spoke with a representative (possibly the owner) who made it a point to make sure my needs were addressed quickly and with urgency (I had a big festival gig coming up and needed the dial for new head I just installed). It was fixed and sent back basically brand new! And for half the price! If you're thinking about buying a Drum Dial, don't think anymore... Get it! It will make your tuning life much easier!

        Comments about DrumDial Drum Tuner:

        I've been playing drums since 15+ yrs, to tuning using the small drum tool and I've been pretty good at tuning batter and resonant. Tried the DrumDial this week, and "WOW."
        To dial each lugs/tension rods makes the head more power and it's pretty easy for every drum on the practice kit while the guitar/bass. Good stuff!

          I'm a church drummer, from playing my drumset 6 to 7 times a week (church services & practices) the drum heads always detune and/or break. DrumDial helped me tune my drums to the correct tensions & have the complete drumset tuned beautifully. Very easy to use, & very fast if you know how to work the drum dial.

                    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!!!
