Menestrel de malheur's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good tool that does the job"

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
This is a good tool that does its job ie "VAGUELY MEASURING VOLTAGE SKINS" Those who expected more or taking that for a miracle tool is wrong.

Let's be clear:
-So it takes and this was measuring tool
-Placing the pulling tool near 1 or by placing two fingers spacing between the tool and the circle
We squeezes her skin by applying a voltage equal to each tie by reading the value on the tool
We have honed ear if necessary

Or faster or longer than traditional tuning, except that most people believe that equal voltage on the meter gives a perfect tuning, what is wrong when the flexibility and deformation of one knows skin throughout his life.
More logically more correct setting is low unless the device is accurate. For eg kick drum I found the device useless.
Knowing all that we can approach the machine for what it really is.

Useful to have a solid base setting and close enough to be called identical preset each time, useful for identifying "the shallow draft." Useful to quickly check the voltage.

Here is a useful tool but not necessary when you know how to use it or wants to use the base.
I take 3 points due aberrant price.

philcolins's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very well"

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
I use it for two years.
super convenient to find his tune.
more at the beginning of its use that allowed me to test a few all the tension for each style, after having chosen, I focused on the root note of each was so I can not gaffer and get a good grade net.
but of course this is fine tuning his ear then.
I do not regret this purchase.


lunchien's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Although practice"

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
Very convenient to mount a proper skin and quickly obtain a balanced tension points on each of the hoop. One little easily choose the general tension of the skin and have an idea of the sound that one wants to have its shaft. However, to refine the tuning, I continued working in his ear. Say the Tama TW100 Tension Watch lets make a good half of the job. After that also depends on the quality circles and fittings. With molded circle, I think it's a little easier ...
I do it again without hesitation that choice, it allows me to have a sure footing quickly, to give my drums!


fry1985's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not bad at all"

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
If you're new and want to give you REALLY like no 3 / 4 drummers ... who never change twice in the way ... I ^ m it is a good tool
I was buying my first when I could not give my drumkit (hours and hours of lost).

Once received the tension watch, my drumkit was given in 15 minutes.

This tool shows the voice to find agreement, and offers several types of tuning.

I do not doubt we could reach as low bass drum and the snare as hard.

I almost could not give me now, but I keep it always to keep the tension uniform m ^ me of my skin after each change of skin, just to keep his m ^ me.

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
<strong>For how long have you been using it?
</strong> About 6 months

<strong>What thing do you like most/least about it?</strong>
Plus: gain incredible time
the least: its price

<strong>What is your opinion about the value for the price?
</strong> Plea, it could be cheaper

<strong>Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?</strong>
Yes without hesitation

<strong>Global opinion:

</strong> I use it to apply any adjustment that I found after several hours of research. <span style="text-decoration: underline;">This is not a magical object that will do everything alone!</span> It will especially help you to <span style="text-decoration: underline;">refine your settings and replicate them in the infinity and the shortest time.
I now use it again before each concert and recording. Within minutes, my kit is adjusted accurately and always with the same key. No more wasted time at all to settle each time the ear.

I would have been 10/10 if it did not cost so much, so my final score was 8 / 10

sebsonordrummer's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
user for 5 years from the TW100, I think I have done the trick!
is this a gadget? no!
This miracle is the tuner that will ring the fire god your drumkit? either!
short, only the combination of TW100 followed by an ear that will give you the results of the first order.
for standard tuning, you can use the values ​​of prregles tama toms and hop on a sound that will satisfy many drummers! for the snare and bass drum, that is a little warmer to find a good sound!
so what is a serve? Well, when you set up a new skin on a tom, The TW100 can check that all bolts are the correct voltage and we can see its settings so it's repeatable! can then provide a finer skin and then apply the same setting rso skin or typing and hear the small changes in sound (attack, sustain, etc), stretching or DTEND sparingly without losing adjustable base!
I used to give other batteries than mine, it's very practical!
Briefly, using a lot unless you tune your ear drums like a pro!
batteries when I hear high-end sound like a pot, I think that some should invest in this little instrument! <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="wink" />

safti's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
It's been a year and a half that I use

Personally if you think you get your grant thanks ft this unit, go your way

For my part I made the grant ft by a professional, however, over time they tend to dsaccorder

With this device, there is always sound with remarkable accuracy Previous

Over time we arrive refine his ear, and I do not use To check.

In price is not given, but what use is a professional drumkit if it is poorly given.

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
I think

To avoid! demonstrate the number of TW100 sell opportunity.

Dreammer's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
In a nutshell: a tuner efficient drumkit saving time before a recording or concert.

With this tool, it saves time and focuses on the essential: to play ^ ^

The voltage to be applied will depend on two things:
- From you, the sound you like
- The skin of the drum

Tina Arkos's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
APRS reading all the rave reviews on the Controller pressure Tama TW100, I bought lai (66 euros at Total Music the cheapest jai could find) and I just got it. APRS testing trs cest actually good but beware! Its also annoying and trs rglage the drumkit fully taken my Lapras afternoon! I mexplique. Dj rglage 1 cm of the tie seems to me (as some opinion) a bit limited and APRS have test in every sense a good compromise seems to be two fingers (you NPRF ground not a whiskey before?) and anchors. Then following the fawn to ask the Controller cards can go as far as 10 units! If you just dry OPDs will swell the measure. The technique adopted jai is to position the TW larrte on two fingers of the drawing, and then adjust lil good position in front of the tie rod ugly the top of the TW and then can ask as dlicatement THE CONTROL to make a correct measurement (try several times to be sure). I recommend also good uninstall, lies flat on a table Because, I said to beginners jme eyeGO to the ground a larrache dune and after half an hour when t vertbres have the neck strength to play spin the measures and that your always on the snare you TDIs, eyeGO want to take a table and chair!
Another remark, with the toms (Skins transparent dorigine Pearl) jai rglages could do fairly quickly, but with the snare jai galr lot. I think that was just the snare dorigine (Pearl Export drum) which is pretty basic. Dailleurs on the snare drum, snare cot, there is a lightweight mplat on wood made for the passage of the stamp completely distorting measures, such as mplat close ties surrounding the stamp. Short! Rgler shit!
Anyway, once all these points ngatifs oversights, I am satisfied because of the same facts rglages, drums sounds. Rglages indicated by the Tama are those jai utiliss for toms and bass drum sounds and frankly a plutt well (the bass drum mconnaissable) on the other hand for the snare ( because of the quality of it and hides Pearl original post, I think) the show too rglages prconiss dharmoniques and jai rglages the review based on my taste (82 hits and stamp 70).
Finally, for those who have a lot of patience, this tool will be to test INTERESTED rglages DIFFERENT and especially note any rglages INTERESTED, presss for those who do not want sfaire shit, go your way! For beginners like me (jsuis guitarist in fact) it can Savre necessary because even if jai a good ear for the guitar in any case, a drumkit rgler nest not as simple as your guitar and jai daccord seen quavec technology to tighten the screws on the cross with your fingers to go to dpart dun rglage homogne tie rods does not really as long quune screws a little hard and the tension is wrong on my statement with the toms jai TW100 card tie between some 15 units. Voil jespre jai that all could clearly indcis.
Conclusion II (the return) regardless of the drumkit and use whatever rglages, cest one who hits it that does it all! In addition to the drumkit, cest much more obvious that the guitar, cest lnergie you put all that heard lon! LSAC lot when you play anything in a dung!!
