iDrumTune is the worlds most accurate and intelligent system for assisting and educating on drum tuning. LIKE A GUITAR TUNER - BUT FOR DRUMS !
"an invaluable aid not only for drummers but also studio engineers and producers"
Sound on Sound Magazine
"I cant recommend this app highly enough ... for the money, it is indispensable. It's simple, accurate, looks good, and the tuning information is worth the cost of the app alone."
iDrumTune is the first and most intelligent system for analyzing drum sounds and assisting tuning. 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, simply hold the iPhone over the center of a drum, about 4-6 inches away, and strike the drum in the center.
The iDrumTune readout shows you 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 V02 now includes advanced tuning features including an intelligent filter function and Lug 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.
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
This app is good , i had no problem with the frequency saying no data? All worked fine for me, however I needs a library of popular drum kit frequencies, like DW,pearl, sonor, gretch, so if wanted to tune to a certain drum sound I could. Also would help if it didn't lock my phone after I havnt touched it for a bit, hello!! one hand is holding the phone the other is holding the drum key, bit silly. Good app tho
Essential app for drummers
Excellent app which has helped me learn more about tuning and be consistent with my setup. The new update just makes it work even smoother. Essential tool for all drummers!!!
But can someone explain to me why when I hit a mid c on a piano it's gives me a different reading 99% of the time. In lug mode it can be as much as 15Hz out from just hitting the same note?
