Want better drum sounds? Want more consistent drum sounds from take to take and song to song? You need this.
Tune Bot is an accurate digital drum tuning tool. This is a product that is bound to become an essential tool for a lot of studio guys. It clips onto the rim of the drum and measures the frequency as you tap around each lug making it much easier to get perfect tuning for any drum. Even with something like the Drum Dial, fine tuning has to done by ear to get even tone. That doesn’t seem to be the case with the the Tune Bot.
These were released at NAMM 2012 with Guitar Center as the exclusive US distributor. They seem to go for around $99 and can’t keep them in stock!

I’ve reviewed the Drum Dial, and I think it’s a great tool, but it is frustrating that the drum has to be removed from the kit and set on a flat surface first. Also, it measures tension, which is not always 100% predictive of tone. This clip-on thing can be used right on the kit. And the 1/10 Hz accuracy is a drummer geek’s wet dream. (Translated: I am SO ordering one of these.)
