Product Description

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 more quickly and easily than ever before.

Features:

- Heavy weight base for superior accuracy
- Adjustable bezel for "zeroing out"
- Bezel lock
- Tuning range memory markers
- Edge guide for edge distance accuracy

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. Get the tuner that really works -- get a DrumDial and make it possible for your drums to consistently sound great.

Who Can Benefit From a DrumDial?

Professionals, teachers, students, sound techs and studio techs have all benefitted from the speed and ease of drum tuning with a DrumDial -- a high-quality drum tuner at an affordable price.

Advantages:
- Silent Operation
- Tuning Accuracy
- Ability to Repeatedly Tune to a Particular Pitch
- Easily Tunes in Loud Surroundings
- Compact and User Friendly
- Measures Timpanic Pressure, not Tension Rod Torque

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (30 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Get One Now, it will change your life!"
Sound: I am a professional drummer with over 40 years experience as well as having excellent pitch (I am a singer and guitarist as well). I thought of myself as having excellent drum tuning skills. I just borrowed this from a friend and WOW!. Last week I spent about three hours retuning a used kit that I picked up and it sounded great, but when a friend of mine said you have to try this thing, I thought why not, there are definitely some overtones that I could still use to get rid of. After about an hour with the Drum Dial, I can say that I never had a kit sound better. I was actually surprised at how well I did on my own getting the head tensions correct, before using the Drum Dial. I was never off by more than five pounds and in most cases not more than a few, but even the minor tension adjustments I made with this thing absulutlely rocked my world. What is more; I can only imagine how much quicker it would have been the first time with the Drum Dial. Feature: Comes with info on what tensions to use. Ease of Use: Very straight forward. Quality: I am guessing that this is just an adapted lab device. Very high quality Value: The ammount of time saved would make it worth while at twice the price. Manufacturer Support: Wouldn't know, didnt need it and doubt that you ever would

"Double your pleasure....double your fun and joy of drumming with a drum dial. Make your set sound awesome---watch heads turn aro"
Sound: My drums have never sounded better as a result of my frequent use of my drum dial. Although I have a fairly good set of drums (Sonor) the sound of my drums is something I would compare with the best sets on the market. Feature: My drum dial came with the case and accessories. The high-impact case keeps my drums safe in transfer from place-to-place. It's most useful featuers include ease of operation and consistent tensions. I have a lot of fun "playing with" and experimenting with my drum dial. Ease of Use: As I indicated above my drums have never sounded better. I have a six-piece set of 9-ply natural maple drums, and the drum dial increases the natural warm sound of my wood drums. Simply put....wow! Quality: My drum dial appears to be very well constructed. It came without any blemishes and I take excelent good care of my "toys"--especially this toy. I am confident that it will have a long service life as a result of my careful handling of it. Value: The drum dial, in my opinion, is worth its weight in gold. As I look back I don't understand why I didn't invest earlier in a drum dial. I am interested in the new digital drum dial but hate to fool around with electronics and batteries. I can just see me at a gig tuning my drums and running short on battery life. Maybe you might think about including extra batteries? Manufacturer Support: I ahve had no need of any repairs so it is hard for me to rate this support section. The Wow Factor: Not sure what sex my drum dial is but I think its a guy since it likes to measure stuff. I would like to see drum dials in a rainbow of colors like red, yellow, blue, pink---for the girls. Overall: In have looked at other products like the Tama drum dial and it looks cheap. So, I intend to stick with what I have because of the obvious quality of the instument.
