What is your opinion of this product?
I recently bought a Roland TD-11Kv electronic drum set which included all mesh heads. While I know how to tune a regular drum head by sound, I quickly found that technique doesn't work with the virtually silent mesh drum heads!
To address this issue I bought the DrumDial through AMS and it arrived the next day: fast! Tuning drums always takes time and patience, but this device really makes it much easier!
FYI: The included space gauge should be positioned on the inside of the head's retainer ring - not from the inside of the rim's impact pad. This makes using the DrumDial a little more finicky then for a regular drum, but nothing to worry about.
I emailed DrumDial and asked them if they had any suggestions for tension settings and this was their reply:
"...thank you for the e-mail. DrumDial works great with Roland mesh heads, Remo silent stroke heads and all types of other mesh heads (single ply, dual and triple). Very good starting points are: toms set to 65-70, snare set to 75-80 and Bass set to 70"
This is a very well built piece of kit!
