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.

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.

            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 MAY work fine for synthetic heads but on my natual skin congas its a total flop...it gives VERY different readings when i move it an 1/8 of an inch so its totally unusable and going back.

                        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.
