The original and most innovative electronic drum tuning app - iDrumTune Pro brings unrivalled accuracy and features that have never been possible before for assisting with drum tuning. Built by world experts in drums and musical acoustics, and backed up by a detailed online training course on Drum Sound and Drum Tuning.
iDrumTune Pro includes the following features:
* Pitch Tuning – to make your drums sing and allow you to play musical phrases around the kit
* Lug Tuning – to ensure that the drumhead is evenly tuned and gives a smooth and warm tone
* Resonant Head Tuning – to allow you to be sure that the two heads are working together and giving rich overtones
* Spectrum Analyzer – so you can really start to understand what frequencies are excited and heard when playing the drums
* Drum Kit Presets – so you can save and load your favourite tunings and share them with the world. Now also includes the interactive Drum Kit Designer feature.
* The Science of Drum Tuning – and extensive manual on the science and art of drum tuning and getting the best out of iDrumTune Pro
iDrumTune is the first and by far the most intelligent and accurate system for analyzing drum sounds and assisting tuning – developed by drummers, music producers and acoustics research Professors. iDrumTune provides you with a measurement of the drumhead vibration frequency, much in the same way to an acoustic guitar tuner which measures the vibration frequency of a guitar string. In Pitch Tuning mode, you simply hold the iPhone over the center of a drum, about 2-4 inches away, and strike the drum in the center.
The iDrumTune readout shows the recorded sound waveform and gives the strongest frequency recorded. There is also a tuning indicator bar which shows the drumhead tuning relative to musical notes, so iDrumTune can be used to ensure that your drums are in key with each other or the song you are playing. A frequency spectrum view also allows more detailed analysis and helps with tuning the drum at the lug positions.
iDrumTune provides advanced tuning features including an intelligent filter function, Lug Tuning mode and Resonant Head Tuning mode. The filter allows unwanted frequencies to be ignored by the analysis algorithm, whilst Lug Tuning mode offers the simplest and most innovative method for tuning an even frequency response at the lug positions on the drumhead.
The Preset Manager allows you to save all your favourite drum tunings and call them up when you are in the middle of the process. Drum kits can also be exported and imported, so you can share your favorite tuning setups and load new ones in from other drummers.
Drum Tuning isn’t easy, and drums don’t respond exactly the same way every time you hit them. For that reason, it's valuable to know a little about the science of drum tuning. iDrumTune includes a comprehensive text on the science of drums and drum tuning in order to help you get the best of iDrumTune and to become an expert drum tuner!

Ratings and Reviews
Great, Very Accurate, Brilliant Support from Developers
Used this app for the first time yesterday. Firstly the support from iDrumTunePro is excellent and communication with them is fantastic. There’s no doubt that this app will develop over this year. I do not profess to be a good drum tuner and those drummers who say just do it by ear are very blessed that they are able to do so.
But this gives a fantastic starting point for drummers like me, and gives you a point whereby you can get a good idea of where the drum needs to be and the app will allow a player to remove unwanted overtones etc. I’m very much in the experimental phase but the app gives good direction, is tremendous value for money, and gives ease of use when saving settings.
Thanks Rob and the team for a great app and for your very quick response with any correspondence.
I’ve had a couple of tuners over the years and stumbled across this one via the App Store. From the reasonable price and good reviews I thought I give it a go. After watching some of the tutorial videos I was tuning my kit with great accuracy to my preference in a matter of minutes. Having the ability to create preset kits is a great feature if you have varying styles of playing. It has some great functions and I would recommend it to anyone who is starting out or is just not great at tuning! Keep up the great work!

K3v1000 thanks so much for posting your feedback, very much appreciated!
I haven’t tried tuning with the app yet, but if it’s used at Abbey Road Studios just on a phone then it must be good.
The information about the science of tuning including the fundamental frequency ranges for each piece of the kit is worth the 5 stars alone. This will help no end in the studio.
The downside to the app… I want more presets. It comes with tuning presets for rock and jazz though, but I want more. Tunings and theory for other types of drums/styles/genres would be really cool. Like bongos and orchestral drums for example.

Hi there, many thanks for your review. If you go to the Preset Manger page and click the button in the top left corner of the app, you’ll open the Drum Kit Designer feature, which essentially allows you to access almost an infinite number of kit presets. Choose high tuning for drums and low for rock, but it’s ok to break the rules too - many rock drummers tune high and some jazz drummers tune low. To learn more about other genres, go follow our tutorial course at www.iDrumTune.com/learn. The app will help you find your own personal preferences!
