Default Re: looking for a single adjustment drum tuner.

I have seen a few products like you speak of come and go over the years.
None of them worked that well.
The best way to tune a drum is with evenly spaced multiple lugs positioned around the perimeter of the drum that are individually adjusted. (The current standard by witch most drums tune)
All of the single turn tuning adjustment devices that I have seen all depended on initial balanced tensioning of multiple tension rods.

Arbiter used a one point tuning ring but due to inconsistencies in head material and manufacturing having the head at an even tension does not make it have an even pitch, same reason you still need to adjust the tension rods on a roto tom to get it at an even pitch.
