Not only is the snare pretty much perfect, the customer service is amazing! This just might be the last snare i ever purchase!
The price tag might be Hefty but this drum is worth it. Solid construction, distinct look and feel. This drum does it all. The mechanism works perfect. This is the future.
If your looking in to get a snare most definitely get this one you don’t get just one sound but you get every sound you want with only the move of knob! Sound quality is amazing oh and did I mention it has the easiest way to remove drum heads! Best purchase I’ve ever done.
This versatility helps a lot as I play a regular kit and a (small) Cajon kit. The choice for which to play depends on venue size and set list. For the regular kit I was using a 13" maple Pork Pie snare and for the Cajon Kit I was using a 10" maple Pearl snare. Now that I have the maple Dialtune I want to try and use one snare for both kits.
Thanks for designing such a revolutionary product for drummers!
I was looking to purchase a second and third snare drum for my studio, to have a variety of tones and colors to choose from - but this would have cost a fortune, and I would have been stuck with only 2 or 3 sounds. Instead, I picked up the DialTune snare, and now I have nearly infinite amount of snare sounds to choose from, for two main reasons: Obviously the ability to quickly tune the drum (both top and bottom heads independently) is a HUGE advantage - but furthermore, the ability to swap heads on the fly to test out new sounds is priceless. Now, instead of having multiple snares collecting dust around the studio, I have only ONE snare (which is solidly built, by the way) and a handful of heads to choose from. This saves time and hassle, so I don't have to pull mics off the snare drum, lug another one out of storage, swap them, set the new one up, tune it, and so on - possibly only to find out that it's not the sound I'm looking for. With the DialTune, it's just that easy - pick a head, dial in the tone I'm looking for, and HIT RECORD. Best purchase I've made in a loooong time! Highly recommend! (Plus, the owners are super cool and easy to catch on the phone with questions and support.) Thanks DialTune!
