The DB Tuning Key is our original product proudly "Made In Japan". The simple concept of combining, tuning key and drumstick, makes the DB Key perfect for tuning drums. The wooden handle is the same diameter as a drumstick, which feels natural to hold and allows you to "Tap & Tune" your way around the drum with the same hand. This makes it possible to mute and unmute the center of the drumhead with your free hand providing greater overall control when handling the drum.
 
Tapping drumheads with wood as opposed to metal provides a more natural tone / pitch on which to base your tuning, and the rounded ends of the wooden handle are gentle on thinner heads such as the resonant side of snare drums that metal keys tend to damage. With the handle you can also tap the centre of the drumhead and hear the overall fundamental tone or pitch of the drum just like you would with a normal drumstick. 
 
Each handle is individually hand-lathed from Japanese Beech and drilled precisely to suit each Shaft. The handles are then finely sanded but unfinished to provide the "Warm & Natural" feel of Wood. However if you would like to finish your handle with oil or lacquer please do so.
