TOOLS FOR PERCUSSION INSTRUMENTS

DK MULTIā„¢ Drum Multi-Tool

The DK Multi brings drum key functionality to a whole new level! The centerpiece is a forged – not the typically cast – drum key made to precision tolerances. But we added three metric hex wrenches to cover the most common sizes found on drum hardware – especially pedals. The tool skeleton is made of pro-grade chrome vanadium steel, wrapped in a polypropylene jacket for great feel. Despite its additional capability, the DK Multi is about the same size as a standard drum key. This is likely to become your favorite drum key. PATENT PENDING. GTDKMT1, $9.95 (USA MAP)

GrooveTech Drum Multi-Tool

Drums take a beating. Literally. Such abuse means ongoing adjustment and repair - even during a performance - so we updated our already formidable GrooveTech Drum Multi-Tool. It'll quickly remedy problems on virtually all makes and models of drums, starting with a drum key that's made to the same high standards as our T-Handle Drum Key. No multi-tool would be complete without the standard array of screwdrivers, so we provide a 5mm slotted and #1 and #2 Phillips. But where this tool really adds value is its collection of both inch and metric hex wrench sizes to handle pedals and other hardware. A one-piece body makes rotation and storage of components easy, and a stainless ruler was added for additional functionality. All tools are forged to precision tolerances using a heat-treated S2 alloy with a polished chrome finish for some extra bling on the bandstand. MULTIPLE PATENTS GRANTED. GTDMT1, $14.95 (USA MAP)

GrooveTech T-Handle Drum Key

The GrooveTech puts a new “spin” on drum keys with a unique sliding “T” handle that allows quick and easy changing of drum heads without power tools. The handle can be slid from one end to the other for extra leverage – especially useful for high-tension drum corps tuning. Fit and finish is top-drawer, using heat-treated chrome vanadium alloy with a polished chrome finish. The detachable 1/4” drive drum key socket is made to precise tolerances. GTDKY1$15.95 (USA MAP)

1/4" Drive Drum Key Socket

Most drum keys are crude castings, but we went the professional tool route of forging and heat-treating our drum key. The result is high strengh, despite an ultra-thin wall, and tight manufacturing tolerances. Our drum key won't break, but if it did, a lifetime warranty would cover it anyway. Does your regular drum key's maker offer that? We didn't think so... SCTDKY$4.95 (USA MAP)
