    It works very, very well. I've had mine for a while now and I think it was one of the best purchases I have made. My drums absolutly sing! It takes a while to figure out where your exact tuning number is, but once you find what you like, you can tune your whole kit to perfection in 5 minutes without having to bang on them. I take mine with me to every gig so I can do a quick tune-up while I'm setting up to make sure my drums always sound great every time.

    Lafirin, I think that using a drum dial, or a torque key to help with tuning our drums is just fine. Being a purist is fine, but not at the expense of a well tuned kit. Once you use the tool to find that perfect sound, you'll remember about how many turns of the key got you there, and you'll remember that sound that you like. So, if you want, you could be a purist after that - if you want. On the other hand, as 1DB has pointed out, the ability to do a quick tuning isn't so bad either, IMHO.

    the drum dial wont perform miracles, you still have to know how to get you initial tuning to know what your settings are.

    I'm sure that's true, Funky. I bought the Evans torque key, seemed like a cheaper way than the drum dial, and I used it to begin tuning my new kit. After I got things basically tuned, I still had to get out the old manual key and a stick to get the fine tuning that I wanted. After various problems - choked sounding drums, snare sympathetic vibration, and generally not quite liking what I heard - I heard one drum come to a beautiful tone. Tuned every other drum in relation to that one, and then everything was perfect. Started with the torque key to get close, but still worked with the old tried and true drum key to nail it! Once it's nailed, I'm sure that recording the torque or the setting on the drum dial would always make it easier to repeat the tuning quickly.
