Not much better than a $4 drum key! Disappointed!

By John Smoker

from Undisclosed

Comments about Evans Torque Drum Key:

Bought one of these about 6 months ago and have used it many, many times, trying to learn the "trick" to tuning drums using this thing. I have to say that it really is not much more use to me than a drum key is. Recently replaced all the heads, both batter and resonant, on my kit, and after using the torque key, I still found variances in head tension (visible by the wrinkles) on almost every drum.
It is a clever design, and I guess it would be useful in one of those quick head replacement scenarios, but I would rather rely on the seat and two turns method, than to spend the amount of time (about 2.5 hours) it took me to figure out that the torque key is not a very good tuning tool. I still use it, occasionally on my snare resonant side, but thats about it.

Have always used Evans heads and will continue to do so, but I think that they should just stick with the skins and leave the tools to another manufacturer.

sweet

By Matthew P

from Baltimore MD

Comments about Evans Torque Drum Key:

this wrench is so smooth and easy to use. i play and tune as i play 2nd set, this made it so easy. It has a super stong magnet to when i am dune tuning i just set it on a lug on my floor tom. It's always there and doesnt rattle. Can be adjusted exactly to the tention you want! I dont know how I got alone without it!! well worth the money!

innovative but not necessary

By Alex N, Chainz

from Blue Springs, Mo.

Comments about Evans Torque Drum Key:

This key is a good concept but in reality I don't think it's necessary. It's about $10 too much but I don't think it's a bad product or something that doesn't work because it does work to a certain extent but I still had to fine tune my snare drums by using it as a regular drum key. It's interesting and works fine but if you don't have the extra money, save your money or buy something else that's more necessary.

Works exactly as described

By Matt S.

from Georgia

Comments about Evans Torque Drum Key:

This product does exactly what it was designed to do. I've had it for a month and have tuned my 2 sets with it. It clicks when it is set where you want it and sounds even all over the head. I love it!

Torgue Key. The best tool I ever bought!

By Thr33why

from Australia

Comments about Evans Torque Drum Key:

The evans torgue key is fantastic. I've always hated tuning my drums. It's always taken me a long time and a fair bit of frustration. This tool makes tuning a dream. Assuming your lugs are all in good condition (Which mine are. Mapex Pro Saturn Kit is fantastic) you just set the head and proceed tuning as usual with the key, excpet it stops turing at the desired tension. Everything even. Head and resonant side. I tuned my kit from scratch in minuets. FANTASTIC. It was so good i wanted to go out and tune all the drum kits in the world. Again and again. =)If lost I would buy two more so I would not be without one again. I recomend for any drummer. I've heard good stuff about the drum clock things but this is cheaper, smaller and less fragile. Perfect!
