New to tuning
by Clifton from Keene, TexasI spent just about every night for about a month tuning my first real drumset. It was very fun but frustrating at times. I watched every video and read almost every writings out there on tuning. I ... read more [+]had this from the start and I used it and regular drum keys and my fingers of course, I can tighten them pretty tight with just my fingers. tried every position of top and bottom heads. When it was all said and done this tool works, some complain about the range of settings but it is actually has basically infinate adjustments. The actual numbering in the dial is just not how i would have done it. See the dial says 0-9, and there is 5 clicks between each number, it doesnt even get to my finger tight till around what I would call 5.1 or 5.2 meaning 1 or 2 clicks past 5. It doesnt even grab or turn anything at all on setting 5, I believe this is where some get confused with it. That should be 0, but its not its 5. The thing is that it will go way past 9.5 till it is so tight you would never have a drum as tight as this thing can go. After all this I finally ended up using this tool almost exclusively on all my drums. After choosing a setting for top and another for bottom and evely adjusting them going around quickly starting and lossening and breakaway at the same spot I put it on over and over all the way around the drums several times them test the tone at each lug. I only tightened 3 lugs out of my whole set counting top and bottom to get each skin completely intune by ear with its self. close [-]

by Jeff from Anaheim, CAThis thing works REALLY well. Of course, it isn't a substitute for using your ear. But it's a pretty good tool for getting close, and then using your ears for the fine-tuning.

An Eminently Handy Tool
by Michael from Indianapolis, INThis is one of those "where have you been all my life?" kinds of products. In response to criticism I've read of this and like devices, it bears noting that, no, it will not tune your drums for you; n... read more [+]or will it replace your ears as your primary tuning implement. It is merely a tool. But for the purpose of getting all of your lugs equally tensioned, what a handy little tool it is! I use it to to fine-tune after tuning by ear, and I swear my drums sound ever-so-slightly better as a result, with fewer dissonant overtones. It's like buying a socket wrench set after trying to make do with a cheap adjustable wrench: it won't fix your carburetor for you, but if you already know what you're doing, it sure will make it faster and easier. close [-]
