Drums make more than one note when hit. Tensioning the lugs to all return the same dominant lug note resonance is a start but can still leave the sound quality somewhat variable. Even if the lugs agree with each other at the lower lug note using a note sniffer, they can still disagree at their upper overtone resonances. Only RESOTUNE II provides the extra step of “clearing” the lugs to each other, for purest clear drum tone.
When all of the higher overtones are also in agreement, we eliminate dissonance between closely spaced higher overtones and realize a pure “clear” drum sound. This clear sound is hard to describe but easy to recognize when you hear it.
(see “About Drums” for technical discussion about overtones) .
RESOTUNE is clearly the best (pun intended) drum tuner thanks to this “clear” function that you use after your lugs are already voiced to desired lug resonance notes (when typical drum tuners are finished). This unique “Clear” function sets up a standing wave in the drum head and fine matches the lug tensions to each other using a novel measurement technology we call “clear quality”. When every lug is fine adjusted to indicate the exact same clear quality, the drum will deliver its most pure, “clear” tone.
In addition to this unique clear function, RESOTUNE also reads and displays the fundamental note and the lug resonance note (like some simpler tuners do) to use for precision, repeatable drum kit voicing. After you voice your drum kit, then “clear” it for best possible sound quality.
