Quick Start Guide - dialtune snares
What is dialtune? And what is a cable tuning snare drum?
dialtune is a cable tuning system that allows you to tune on the fly, change drumheads in under a minute, and explore new creative possibilities with zero compromises.
Cable tuning is not new, but the way dialtune implements it is. With dialtune, you can independently tune the top and bottom heads using separate dials on either side of the drum. Additionally, changing drumheads doesn't require you to remove the cable. Our quick release hoops make changing a drumhead simple and easy.

What are your drum sizes and materials?
We are currently manufacturing one size of snare drum: 6.5 x 14", available in 10-ply maple with two finish stain options to choose from - natural and espresso. We're always experimenting with new materials and finishes and will have more to share soon. Additionally, we plan to expand to new sizes of snares, toms, and a full kit in the near future! Stay tuned.
Will you ship internationally?
We plan on shipping internationally very soon, we'll have more information coming.
Can I put dialtune on my current snare drum?
Not yet. Because of the wide variety of snare drums on the market, each drum has a unique lug pattern that makes it difficult to apply dialtune's cable tuning system. To ensure the technology works, we are starting by making dialtune as a complete snare drum so we can have more control over the quality! We hope to tackle an aftermarket version in the future.
Does dialtune tune the top and bottom heads independently?
Yes, you can control the tuning of the top and bottom heads independently using separate dials on either side of the drum. Check out our videos online for more information.
