- Looking for a great gift for a drummer ?
- A gift that is useful ?
- A gift that will be used ?

No 1 . Digital Drum Tuner
- This is my all time favourite useful piece of kit I have in my stick bag and I would have been lost without one. Why ? If a drummer is going into a recording studio to record then they are probably going to put new heads on their drum kit. After playing for a little time the heads will slacken off (espicially the snare). This drum tuner will always take the drummer back to the original tuning they had on the snare. Ideal for keeping the drum tuning/sound consistent for the recording session.
