Brilliant Drum Key

This is a drum key that works like a torque wrench - using the dial on the bottom, you set the torque; when the lug reaches that torque, the top of the key 'snaps' open.

Works perfectly, it's super fast and easy to use. It's important to realise that is sets lugs to the same *tightness*, not pitch - just becasue the lugs are all at the same tension doens't mean they'll all be in tune with each other, especially on a cheaper drum.

With a new skin however, it'll get you in the ball park really quickly. From there, you can use it like a normal drum tune to fine tune things. The socket end is magnetic so it sticks on the lugs, and the grip end is nice and big so even on stubborn lugs it's easy to turn. It might seem a bit expensive, but if you're a drummer or an engineer, you should own one of these.

Awesome for quickly checking tunings

I use this key for changing tunings quickly in the studio, to find out what suits the song best!
I know guys who just use this key, me personally I then fine-tune everything. To each their own.
Really useful!

Great for getting a reliable and definitive starting point every time. Really easy to use and an invaluable tool if you need an even sound fast.

A bit expensive, but worth it

I never really got on with this keys main feature, but simply on the fact of how east it is to use and turn lugs I love it. The magnet feature is great. I can't tell you the amount of times that I'll be tuning a drum and it will slip and fall....and never be found again. And even if I did drop this thing, because of the size it sticks out like a soar thumb. I've had this key for over 5 years now and I still use it/ haven't lost it. Which can't be said for almost all the other drum keys I've bought over the years. Which probably accumulates to over the price of the Evans DATK key.
