I've had a Drum Dial in my drum room for years, I love them. It's always nice to check out your tension with a dial and see how you're drum is doing. It also gives you pretty accurate tuning. These are my techniques and I will still tune the drum on the kit... minor tweaks or a complete retune. Remember, Drop Tune, and Check out Bob Gatzen's Tuning Lessons on youtube

This is the first of three parts. In this lesson I'll share with you
the concepts that I've used & discovered over the years. Today
we'll look at tuning the toms. I'll discuss topics such as:
Tuning all bottom heads together first
Changing & seating the top or batter heads
In Part 2 we're going to spend more time with the toms! Here I'll share such topics as:
Tuning the top or batter head
Top & bottom head tuning concepts…how they work together
Tuning by feel
Finding a drums "sweet spot"
In this final of the 3 lessons we're going to take a look at tuning the floor tom and kick drum. We'll also discuss some basic drum maintenance.
I hope you enjoyed this little series on tuning. Remember, these are only my personal views and I recommend that everyone explore as many concepts as possible until you find the sound you're hearing in your head! Good luck!!
