Tama TW100 Tension Watch
I have this toy for almost a month. I am a novice Contents acoustic drum, until I n Submitted played on my yamaha DTXTREME II s. I have taken the plunge and bought a tama starcalssic performer BB. The surprise when I dballe, tom 14 "bass drum and the skins do not montes: bone (requires conditioning)
N'tant not at all to my ear, I ordered this tension watch (and skin for the remo bass drum by the way).
In fact it is neither more nor less than comparator mcanique.
Rgler for my drums, it's easy, I look table and applies the rglages "standards" on all skin types (knocks and reasonable). So good, sounded just the first time! Even if some tie rcalcitrants measures are not pile hair on trais gave a harmonious tuning trs.
Satisfied with the feedback, I changed the skin of my original Evans bass drum and I put the remo coated bought ... L t is not so easy, rgler tension is almost mission impossible! I tried to stretch and relax to death to get there, do anything, whatever the technique, the ties are either barely in tension is not tight at all (they are moving the hand without any effort) to the latter, no one is turned on and ADI has over 50!
I put the skin and the rglage evans only took 3 minutes!

So that conclusion, it's a great device for the toms as demand exceeds the voltage 40, below and above for skin oil, it is better to trust his or orreille a cl dynamometrique.
I do it again this choice without concern given the precision of the tuning that only rsulte BMOL trsdtendues for skin that become almost impossible rgler.

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
I just received the 100 TW I agree on the principle of the machine, but I notice that the tension recommended by Tama, are valid for Remo, the other types is quite different, and on Aquarian skins if you place the device 1 cm from the same circle the tension screw completely unscrewed from the skin you're still 50! I am doing tests on Tama, Yamaha, Drumtech, all high-end as they say, For now I'm going much faster with a torque wrench to 20 Euros Evans who also has the advantage of not remove the drums, yeah yeah .. not sure yet. If you have any advice ... Repeat the choice? Not sure, already orbiting the price ex! For a young person who starts I would take the wrench.

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
Well, I did that for three days, but I had to share it.

Date (ie for more than 10 years) I set my drumkit to the ear, which seemed like a good choice. Well, besides that, I have long had his eye on the voltage Watcher, but I decide to buy it. I found the price a little overrated, I changed my mind lately, well I can ...

I work a lot in the studio, we all know the importance of sound in such conditions (as in all the way): the search for any default of the harmonic grating, vibration, a raid correct toms , the regularity of the sound of the snare drum, etc ...

Well, what have I done all these years without this object. In 5 minutes, without any specific research, I just checked the voltage of my barrels, 80% correct it will say, and immediately it sounded impeccably.

There I am sure make the most of my kit, and again, just to tensions adopted, because with this object you can test almost infinite tuning and vary depending on the skin too. In fact it opens a field of incredible opportunities, as far I preferred to keep his "walking" on my kit, now I know I can change, test, record, etc ...

I use only the skins Aquarian coated for striking, and Evans G1 in resonance. Configuration: 12x9, 16x16, 22x18 on a full Mapex maple snare is a Tama Starclassic hammered bronze. These are my tensions taken from each 10mm bolts (center of the skin, it is "20" below):
Snare: 90 hits in 75 at resonance.
Tom Viola: 70 for strikes, 65 to the resonance
Floor tom: same
Bass drum: 60 for striking and resonant.

In conclusion:

With simplicity and blinding speed is adjusted the entire kit, minting as resonance.
This accessory is what I bought more useful for a long time. I recommend strongly.
The price new in Brussels: 100 euros is not cheap, but good sound that is priceless ...
I give 10 out of 10.

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
I use this little item from two months.
It's super useful for adjusting the skin, all rings true and if it does not change skin types, there's tension to reapply once Previous to find the m its me.
It will advise the same voltage Watch for beginners, guitar players use a tuner at the beginning because it is difficult to give a trs instrument when the ear is not used to it. Why should the batsmen play with his rotten their debuts?
His absence, the price, but is it better to buy a splash in excess or play an instrument that sounds right?

In short time saving, accuracy of tuning.

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
Completely agree with everyone, great product, I have 6 months from now, and I must say that this product made me service several times when I did not lose any time rergler when the skin is a YAM dtendent les3 all day! pti one shot live with my note-taking and I fall on a rglage prcis and that sounds the best possible!

TAMA personal congratulations, five paintings for me or if you prfrez 10/10!

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
For a few years I have, I'm not ...
APRs have remont disassemble and changed his skin,
m'tre and muffles used in pulling his own hair
order to eliminate the spurious harmonics
tension caused by poor skin,
I finally bought the watch tension ...
Well, I must say that it's great:
More bad harmonics, just a well-rounded good reason.
I play with Remo Ambassador in strikes and Evans resonant reasoning.
I tend a little less skin typing ...
It was quite a CONTRL prcis voltage (for single skin) ...
I deprecated for skin type Pinstripes ...
Operation: trs simple.
You put on a flat surface to calibrate (the zero-rgler)
and then you put it on the skin 1-2 cm from the pulling and you will be ...
So for all tie ... For good measure,
place it 2-3 times and average of the measure.
The measurement is given by the quadrant of a rod intermdiaire
located on the bottom ...
It's a bit expensive but it works well and you do not need
to stick anything on the skin to control the sound ...
And it is more reliable than the cls dynamomtriques ...

Tama TW100 Tension Watch
I just bought it, well, might as well say right away, it's a nice gadget, expensive, and I doubt the real accuracy (no control of weights and measures, for example).. For utility, ca can assure just before a concert, to install the gear, help if there is a lot of hype about ... For a drum tech for example?

But let the tests:
Well, setting the snare .... And much to my surprise ... I'm not that bad ...
My tension, taken in the ear, are almost all just ... And for the rest, it's the same ... So at home, no use! ... But I still noted the tension .... slol
For a pro? I'm not, so I know Po .... lol
It is not a cherry stem for us poor amateurs drummers, artists or pseudo proven ...
Go, a small 2 j'met for doubt (well, j'vous say with time, if 1 or 3) ... lol

Go to the ENT, it is more useful!

A promise due
He that never changed my mind I cast the first stone!
I took all my tensions, and spent two days to test ... Well, it damn well!
I noticed each time (no chance of losing the right setting !)...
My sound is much better! And the kick, my god ....
Unfortunately, a snare drum core, is a snare ..... Basic ... snifff
Come on, the jewel is worth more than 3 ... An 8 would be more appropriate!
But it's mega expensive! Qd same ...
