i bought this key last week and i thought to share some words about this product .What i did is that i tried 3 ways of tuning on 2 different snares ( a maple dw and a steel ludwig) and 2 toms sizes 12'' and 14''.I used evans ec2 batter heads on both toms and evans (can't remember the type) resonant heads.On snares i used the stock dw head on the maple shell and a remo head on the steel snare.
So first i tuned by ear and it was crap as usual..
Then i used the drum dial and the result was way better.
And finally i used the torque key which took me much less time and it beat them all !!
All drums sounded way better and the difference was noticeable from first stroke !
The key is very easy to use.You set the desire tesnsion you want with a knob (clockwise tighter) and start tuning each lug untill you hear and feel the click.Same way on each lug.This way all lugs have excactly the same tension.
2.Easy to use
3.You can use it in the dark on stage
4.Easy to carry
5.Easy attach on the lugs
6.Quick tuning (time is money..)
6. Nice click sound
1. I will let you know when i find any
