I love this key. It is self explanitory on how to use, and puts all of the lugs on the drum to the same tension. It has been one of the best investments I ever made. It made my set sound the best it ever has.

Pros: 1: Gets each lug reasonably close to one another (within 10hz on my rack toms) 2: Does a better job of tuning than I can when I can't hear (with a live band playing in close proximity) Cons: 1: Settings knob will often "skip" when you reset. You set it to 4, crank till it clicks, reset it, didn't notice the settings knob jumped back to 3.5. 2: It doesn't free-ratchet when triggered, it just jumps a quarter inch, requiring a reset each and every time. Takes 10x as long as a racketing torq wrench would. 3: Key grip is awfully close to the settings knob, which means you bump into the settings knob a lot when in a hurry. 4: Since settings knob is threaded, it is pretty unreliable and unusable at its lowest tensions (1 through 3 out of 10), which may be a tension that many drummers find desirable. If I were a drummer that wanted to tune my toms on the low side, this product would be infuriating. Otherwise, it seems to work better than nothing.

    Comments about RhythmTech Pro Torq Drum Key:

    I teach music in a public school system. Trying to train students how to properly tension and tune a drum head is difficult. This tool makes it easy. Once I set the basic tension the tool does the rest. From then on if a student wants to go further they can, but at least the basic setup is correct. I also have a bit or arthritis in both thumbs, so the big wings on the tool help with torque.

    THE Fastest Way to a Tuned Drum

    By Jonathan Scroggins

    from Fair Play, Missouri

    Comments about RhythmTech Pro Torq Drum Key:

    I recently purchased this key and another high cost tuner and have found that this rhythm tech torq key gets me to where I want to be EXTREMELY fast! It only measures the tension of the rods (which can be drastically different than the timpanic pressure at the same tension rod), however, it saves me SO MUCH time! I've found that a quick torq "tuning" can usually get me ready to play in about 5 minutes. Be aware, though, that this key will not solve all your tuning problems. You will still need to fine tune your drums, however, this gets you REAL close fast!

    Simple ?

    By Ricky

    from Las Vegas Neada

    Comments about RhythmTech Pro Torq Drum Key:

    If you don�ۡ���t know about or torque wrench you may have a problem with this due to no instructions.Once you figure it out works great and easy. But there needs to be better instructions with this product.

    Great simple tunning key, helps to ensure right number of turns around the rim, great price compared with the electronic ones. I recomend it to all drummers, regardless of experience.

    does what it should

    By Paul

    from san diego, ca

    Comments about RhythmTech Pro Torq Drum Key:

    This key gets the heads close, quickly. Just don't expect it to work miracles. You still need to fine tune each lug by ear and find a pitch you like. It is a good first step, and nice for getting the tensions of the batter/resonant heads the way you want relative to one another.

    You Pay What You Get for

    By Mario

    from New Jersey

    Comments about RhythmTech Pro Torq Drum Key:

    This is a must have tool for any drummer. This makes tuning faster, easier, and more precise. It also gives many options to choose how tight you want your lugs to be. I Strongly recommend this to beginners or for someone who simply can't tune drums well. Personally i haved only played for a couple of years so i dont have much experience with tuning or playing. But the ProTorq makes tuning a whole lot easier and makes it sound great

    Absolutely Satisfied

    By Lem

    from New Orleans

    Comments about RhythmTech Pro Torq Drum Key:

    I bought the Torq Drum Key for the purpose of quick-tuning when time doesn't allow me to take my time tuning. Needless to say, I was very impressed with the reults. Its very easy to use and it measures tension accuracy to the "T". I strongly reccomend this product to anyone who may not have all day to spend tuning, or someone who may just not be the best at tuning. You still have to play around with it to find the setting that fits you, but once you find it, the result is great sounding drums.
