Like most drummers I've always felt like I know how to tune a drum. The tune bot takes it to another level. I guess if you have perfect pitch hearing you may not need this but for the rest of us have a tool which gives a measurable feedback is great. Tune Bot is easy to use and easily allows to tune you drums in a variety of way and more importantly make sure your drum is in tune with itself. You can save your settings for each drum so that it's easy to re-tune if necessary or tune a new head to where you like it. For me it is absolutely worth the money.

Gave it another honest try because of the you-tube recommendations. Just couldn't get it tune the drums very quickly or very well. I tried it on a drum with perfect hoops and edges. It took awhile, but I was able to "force tune" the drum to a note from the online instruction book. I then tried it on a known bad drum (low spots in the bearing edges) for a real test to see how it would react to real world use and see if it could find the bad spots. It couldn't. I tuned the drum to the right frequency 218 hz (confusing... so many to choose from) at the edge of the drum, but the drum sounded damped and out of tune (drum went out of tune faster than it took to tune it). The tune bot said the drum was in tune, but it obviously didn't sound in tune (because of the bad edges?). Be careful with this one, very expensive. I have trouble recommending this one.

      Comments about Tune-bot Electronic Drum Tuner:

      I just picked up the Tune-bot and used it on my 5 piece with a 20" bass drum. It really helped me focus the tone and my kit sounds the best it ever has!

      To start with, I used some of the suggested settings from the manual. This is a great way to get used to the Tune-bot operation and the stock tunings from the manual were awesome. As an added bonus, the feel of the kit also improved and the 16" x 20" bass now sounds like a deep 22" and plays like butter.

      I've read some negative reviews concerning ease of use but A) if you spend a few minutes up front reading the manual and B) have basic math skills (only for some of the advanced features), you shouldn't have any issues.

      I own a few tension style tuners but the Tune-bot is in a completely different class. I'm very happy with this purchase and look forward to the prospect of my drums never having a "bad day" again.

      Comments about Tune-bot Electronic Drum Tuner:

      This thing is definitely the best one for tuning drums. As it says in the instruction manual, the tune-bot let you tune your drums MUSICALLY, not mechanically, finding the best tone and frequency. I don't know why some people find it difficult to use and said that it doesn't work, I didn't have problems with that. Obviously you need to be patience in order to find the best tone and have the same frequency in each of the tension rods, but is totally worth it.

          Comments about Tune-bot Electronic Drum Tuner:

          Yes it might take some time (maybe a few hours) to figure out what kind of sound you want (top head tighter, bottom head tighter, tight/loose snare sound, etc). But after that, this will give you that sound every time. You will have YOUR signature sound. I watched the YOUTUBE videos on the product and, for me, it was that easy. You will have to spend time alone with your drums. If you have a guitarist or bass player that insist on playing at the same time, that won't work. But again, once you find your sound, they'll appreciate it too.

          Comments about Tune-bot Electronic Drum Tuner:

          This takes way too long. I have only had it for two weeks and I don't have the patience. I only tuned my toms and they are better than before, but they could use more tuning. It gives you five different readings and never the right one. You are either at 176 or 235 or 89 (examples). I'm returning it for a drum dial or tension watch. I've seen only good reviews for those. This is a great idea but still has to have a little more work done. This thing does not fit in the packaging either. There's so many things stuffed into a small box, I hope they don't charge me for it. Buy something else. It is too expensive.

          Comments about Tune-bot Electronic Drum Tuner:

          Even though this product has mixed reviews, for me personally, this tuner worked very accurately and well altogether. It exceeds your expectations and in my opinion is worth every penny spent! So far, it has performed very well consistently ever since I got it. Overall, if your tuning method isn't working, give this a try to make tuning easier, and to make your drums sound better! Also, a bit of advice... DON'T GET A TENSION WATCH!

          Let's be honest...

          By Duell Jackson

          from Rockford, IL

          Comments about Tune-bot Electronic Drum Tuner:

          This product is NOT revolutionary. This product is a guitar tuner, adapted for drums. There are many other products, some that existed, and were patented prior to Tune Bot coming to be. Now this company is attempting to patent the equivalent of patenting the idea of a chord. This wouldn't be a big deal, except Overtone Labs is suing other companies (out of existence) who have created and developed software-based versions of what this, and others prior to this, guitar tuner does. Tune Bot is not unique, Tune Bot is not even first with this idea, but want to claim they are. Other equally effective, even superior, drum tuning tools are out there, and at a FRACTION of the cost of Tune Bot. Can it help you tune your drums better? Yes, but at $100, Tune Bot should be relegated to gimmick status, AND the bargain bin, with the other $15 guitar tuners.

          Awesome Little Gadget!!!

          Comments about Tune-bot Electronic Drum Tuner:

          I Love this thing!!! Not that I had a difficult time tuning before, but this takes the guess work out of it. Some nights I'm just having an off night and have trouble hearing the tones from my tension rods and this thing comes in really handy. Not only can you get close... with this, you can be dead on. I love that you can also quickly check your overall drum tone while drums are mounted for just a quick check to see if you're gonna need to tune. I understand why some people don't like it, it does take some time to get to know it and save the settings for your drums and heads, but once you get it set up it's awesome. And I found this great tuning guide if you're not sure where to start... http://www.tune-bot.com/tunebottuningguide.pdf So yes it can take some time until you get used to it, but will save time tuning later. So to me, Totally worth it.
