Easily tunes drums by measuring pressure on the drum head. Fast and precise. Ahead DRUM DIAL Precision Drum Tuner Measures drum head tension 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.
