“I’ve been using the Resotune for a couple of years now. NOTHING ELSE works this well. For all those “use your ears” guys, sorry, this kicks your ass. No one’s ears are anywhere close to the precision you can get time after time”. (actual RESOTUNE user endorsement click to read more)
Only RESOTUNE uses our unique “clear” quality measurement, that reveals how closely lugs are matched to each other. This is not a simple pitch reading but measures a physical interaction between lug tension and entire head vibration behavior***. Adjusting all lugs to agree with each other using this additional parameter after the heads have already been voiced for specific notes (when typical drum tuners are already finished), delivers unparalleled clear tone.
Clearing is important because even a perfectly voiced drum makes multiple notes at the same time when struck. The lowest fundamental (thud sound), higher lug note, and sundry even higher overtones occur at non-musical intervals above the fundamental (not simple whole multiple harmonics like conventional musical instruments). This is completely normal for drums and what creates the characteristic drum sound we all love. In an ideal world these higher overtones are all in perfect agreement, but life and drums are more complicated than that. Even if the fundamental pitch, and lug note pitches register complete agreement at each lug, the higher overtones can still differ enough to degrade tone.
When these higher overtones are even slightly different, they create beat notes against each other and generate a cluttered dissonant sound. When the lugs are in perfect agreement at all the upper overtones, we hear a pure, “clear” drum tone. The non-musical overtone notes are still present but instead of numerous closely spaced overtones interfering with each other, we get just one series of pure overtone pitches. This open “clear” sound quality is hard to describe but easy to recognize when you hear it.
(see “About Drums” for technical discussion about overtones) .
In addition to this unique clear function, RESOTUNE also reads and displays the fundamental note and the lug resonance notes (like basic tuners do) to facilitate precision, repeatable drum kit voicing. After you voice your drum kit, then “clear” it for the best possible sound quality.
