"I can’t 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." - www.mikedolbear.com

“***** I never knew I could have this much fun tuning drums!” – Adamrod (App Store review)

“***** Just tuned my first drum and this app is awesome!” – bburt85 (App Store review)

“***** Buy this app if you are a drummer!!!” Lildrummerboy (App Store review)

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!

- Excellent job!

Just wanted to say, thank you so much for making this app! Though my old iPhone 5s has its limitations, I was able to convert it into a powerful drum tuning tool using this application. It’s quite convenient, intuitive, easy to use, etc. The lug equalizer feature is excellent, and I also appreciate being able to save the tunings used before so I can get the exact same tuning another day. I have really learned a lot while using this app, training my ear to hear specific intervals, understanding tuning science, and much more. Before I got this app, I was lousy at tuning drums. They had many overtones, yet were also in a way completely dead as well. Since then, I’ve used iDrumTune quite a lot, and it has worked very well for me! I’ve learned a lot more about tuning drums, to the point that I can make a drum kit sound fairly decent without my phone. If you are still learning how to tune drums, or looking for a less expensive alternative to TuneBot, I can’t recommend iDrumTunePro enough. It was worth every cent of the money I paid. Thanks iDrumTune!!!

- This is a Great App

I came back to drumming after a thirty year hiatus. Back then my Yamaha kit and I had severe disagreements over how it would sound. Before a gig I would struggle mightily with each drum trying to get the round, full sound I wanted. Eventually I would just throw in the towel—literally—and settle for a dull thud. Thirty years later I am old and fat and stuck at home with COVID on the loose and chemo therapy dogging my steps. My answer was to find myself a nice little Sonor kit and some cheap cymbals. After a few days of fiddling, I downloaded this app. Sure, drum head technology has advanced light years and drum shell manufacturing methods are far better. (I can now afford solid maple shells and a friend lent me his Noble & Cooley snare.) But, with this app, I now LOVE the sound of this kit. It is EXACTLY how I always envisioned my kit sounding. Now, if they could make an app to help my cymbals...

- Better than I could have imagined

Never written a review before, but this worked so well I had to give credit where it’s due. I was seconds away from buying a drum dial when I had a thought to check the App Store first. I am so glad I did because this app saved me $50+ and it actually tells you if your drum is in tune as apposed to the drum dial which only tells you the amount of tension on the drum head. Which can be two completely different things, depending on the shape of your kit. So stoked with the product and price! You guys knocked it outa the park!

- Great App - Great Support

What you can do with this app is amazing! I have been a drummer for 60 years and a professional for a good part of that, including doing some studio work. After working with this app and spending time tuning up both the top and bottom of my drum heads, being careful to put them within the proper frequency ranges, my drums have never sound so good! No matter how good a drummer you are, you will sound a whole lot better getting this app and properly tuning your drums. - Mike Gerdes Malvern, PA

- Disappointing, not useful for me

Three recommendations for future revisions: First, consider focusing more on pitches and less on frequencies. I’ve never met a drummer who tunes using frequencies. And while we can Google the conversions, it’s an extra step. Second, incorporate a pitch/tone generator (unless it’s there somewhere and I can’t find it). As it is, the app seems to be geared toward checking the existing pitch/tension of the head, but it would be more useful if it helped the user actually arrive at the desired pitch in the first place. Third, the lug tuning seems to check each lug clockwise, but many of us go from one lug to the one across from it. Maybe there’s an option in there that I can’t find to change the order of the lugs, but if not, there should be.

- Wow!!!

I can’t begin to tell you how great of an app this drum tuner app is. Makes tuning my drums 100% more easy than anything I was using before. Great thought out options, especially the lug tuner. Shows exactly what note frequency you are getting. Fundamental drum tone/note. I Haven’t got to all of the features yet. There’s a great tutorial about drums and tuning them unlike any I’ve seen before as well. Again great job on writing this app and how well it works on iPhone.

- Amazing!

This app is truly amazing. Being relatively new to drumming, I was trying to learn everything about tuning and how drums actually work individually and in relation to one another. The tutorials are very well done and the explanations are easy to follow. Using this app takes all of the guess work out of tuning while still allowing you to use your ear. I get tons of compliments on how my drums sound. Get this app!!

- Game Changer!

This app is absolute genius! I’ve tried so many of the other methods out there, but nothing has worked like this. I’ve been waiting my entire drumming career for something this precise to come along. In over 20 years I don’t feel I’ve been able to tune my drums exactly the way I want to until today. I can’t possibly recommend this app more!

- SO helpful!!!

This app literally changed my drum tuning world! I have some troublesome drums that I always hate tuning and “fighting” on a weekly basis. That all went away when I applied the theories and knowledge gained by reading the excellent tuning explanations included in the app, along with the simplicity of using the apps features. My drums have NEVER sounded this perfect. All I can say is, thank you!!!!!

- Good when it works

Like this app and has enough usable features to make it worth the small price. However it constantly crashes or takes forever to get a reading. Seems to work for about 2-3 minutes then hangs up. I can close the app, open another then go back and reopen and it’s still stuck where it crashed before. Sometimes have to delete then reinstall to get back to a starting point. So nice app WHEN it works.

- Awesome tool for drummers

Being a novice drum tuner I found this app to be the most important discovery I’ve made. Although I’ve tuned drums to ear and didn’t sound bad, using simple “turn lugs till the wrinkles are out” method can’t compare to actually using the science to tune drums. My drums sing and sound like any pro drummer touring with major acts. This app gave my vintage drums that pro sound!

- Works great

I am a retired band teacher and a professional percussionist. I’ve been tuning drums by ear all of my life, and this app lets me dial in the lugs to a finer degree than my ear is able to accomplish. I still like to get my pitches dialed in by ear first, and then use the lug tuning function to fine tune the head to itself. This improves the resonance and centers the fundamental. Overall, I am very pleased.

- So grateful I found this!

I had no clue what I was doing, spent a couple hours reading the tutorials on their website and actually feel confident on tuning drums now. I know the adjustments that need to be made instead of just guessing. So glad I found this app! Thank you thank you!

- Worthless

I’m not typically a “leave a review” guy but this was a waste of time and money. Using this on any drum is inconsistent and false. After getting wildly different results on the same drums, struck the same way the “tuning” would jump drastically. To further test it I used a digital sample and it never gave the same result for 2 consecutive hits. And I’m not talking by a small amount. The only way I can describe it is the result it gives you is completely random. This was all done in a quiet studio environment with little to no ambient noise.

- Perfect

Im still learning all the features but its very nice and it really tunes very good, for who doesn’t know how, it feels like you are tuning a guitar but it’s just the drums, it just seems that you are tuning a guitar or something like it, hope you enjoy it 👌🏾

- Very Helpful...

I found the lug tuning function of this app to be very helpful. I struggle to tune by ear, and the lug tuning function really assisted me in getting a nice sound out of my drums. I suspect the pitch tuning function will be handy moving forward. Well worth the purchase price.

- A great tool!

Overall accurate and very easy to use. It can be used as your main reference when tuning or as a supplement to check when you're tuning by ear. Any drummer can get really good use out of this!

- Amazing

I could never get my toms to sound anything like what i thought they should. In short order they sound amazing. This app is worth every penny

- Great value app

Best thing EVER for your non “ear” player! Seriously my drums have never sounded better, the app takes the guess work out of tuning, you guys and gals have made me my own best drum tech.

- Pretty upset

Pretty upset I bought the first version. Loved it, then iOS updated and the company didn’t update the app!!! Instead, they created a new app so you’d have to buy again. I bought it again. Not happy they made me buy it twice. Obviously this was done so old users would have to pay again. Not cool. I will not buy a third time.

- Been using for years

Once I settled on the frequency I wanted to use on my drums; I mostly stuck to the frequency analyzer for live gigs. This app has made the difference between ok sounding drums and great sounding drums.

- This is def what you are looking for

I would have paid $6 just for the tuning explanation alone. Works great. My three toms including floor do not have resonate heads. Tune different for non res TOMS ?

- I tune drums

Man this is the best app for tuning your drums if you don’t have it I highly recommend it if your a drummer you will love it it’s awesome tool to have love it dude

- Thank you!

This is a godsend! Thank you for making a simple yet incredibly deep drum tuning app. Can’t say enough good things about this.

- Works great

Easy to use and easier to understand compared to Tunebot.

- It’s aight

I’ve had this app for a while now, and I feel it wasn’t worth it, can someone explain to me what I may be dong wrong with this app. And when I use the app for tuning it feels like it’s not accurately running them. Idk

- Doesn’t work and received no help from them

I bought this tuner about 5 months ago and have tried multiple times to get it to work and it doesn’t. After about a month of having the app I contacted them on Instagram and directly and got no response. Don’t buy this app.

- Worth the money

Seems like a pretty good tool so far

- Not user friendly

Can someone explain how I can tell what each lug is currently tuned to? It takes a reading once then it doesn’t change so I don’t know when it’s tuned correctly! This app is disappointing for the price. Not user friendly.

- Great tool!!

Love this app! Allows me to get the right sound every time.

- Pretty good app idea but needs a lot of work

Needs more coding

- Very useful !

I’ve found it best for my kit !

- App review

Good app, but needs update to be able to tune 12 lug marching snare. The resonant tuning feature is helpful.

- Not working right at all

Tried everything and still no success with this app. Wish I can get back what I paid for

- Notworking

This app isn’t working isn’t reading anything as if I didn’t have a microphone it, I checked my setting I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and it isn’t working

- Great for beginners ..

It is perfect for new drummers or guys that can’t tune or for techs that know guys that refuse to tune... tune your drums don’t be a noob

- Awesome app

Awesome app tuned up my drums fast and easy!

- Would like my money back

This app is pretty worthless. Can use my ear and get a better tune than this app helps deliver.

- Brilliant and game-changing!!!

As a drummer, this is the most important app on my phone! Here’s an analogy for how profound this app is: Imagine being born colorblind, and having been handed corrective lenses to see color for the first time. Then you learn the names of the colors and color theory! Like me (prior to using this app), most drummers probably equated “tuning” to evenly tensioning the lugs and then playing around until the drum sounds “good enough”. This app reveals the basic physics behind the interaction of two vibrating membranes: notably how the Fundamental (F0) of the top and bottom heads will will ALWAYS be extremely close (+/- 1 Hz). So it’s not that either batter or reso are higher/lower than one another, it’s more about understanding overtones. This app teaches you to understand the truly important interplay between batter and resonant heads to control the First Overtone (F1). So the knowledge I gained about tuning is probably the most important part to me. It’s like an electrician using a multimeter for the first time: “Oh, wow, you can measure this stuff?!” Approaching drum tuning with this app will IMPROVE your ears and get you thinking more musically. For example, now my toms are now tuned in ascending fourths, matching most of the open strings of the guitars/bass in my band. Now all of that said, tuning is difficult. It’s like a Rubik’s Cube or tile game; you’ll be mostly there, and then you realize that one variable is off that causes you to temporarily give back some of your progress. With practice, you’ll quickly learning to anticipate these actions and reactions. I probably spent as much time tuning my first tom as the other four combined. Once I got the hang of it, I became a better informed drum tuner and used the app as a validation tool (again, like a multimeter to an electrician). What I like about this app over a similar stand-alone (and far more expensive product) is that iDrumTunePro gets you thinking in terms of F0 (Fundamental) and F1 (First Overtone). So both may get you there, but I feel this app empowers the user far more. Ultimately it’s F0 we’re after, but that interplay with overtones is critical to understand and, you can use it to shape your sound so much! This has seriously opened up my drumming world!

- App doesn’t work

The app does not work and when I asked for a refund it did not give me it

- Not working at all

Spent money for nothing. The app isn’t doing anything at all. NOTHING

- How I tune Congas, Bongos, & Djembe with this app.

First of all the developer responds to questions and is very supportive. I was told that this app was not designed with hand drums in mind, from the developer, but it is coming. I found that trying using the lug tuning mode on these drums but did not get uniform results. I did notice the in pitch tuning mode the tune, was very accurate. Here is the procedure that I use on Congas, Bongos, and Djembe’s. Loosen all lugs. Finger tightening all lugs in a star pattern to just the point that you fell a slight resistance. The Goal being to not allow the drum head to get lifted on the starting side. Once finger tight, use pitch tuning mode, and take a reading by hitting the drum head at each lug. I use a felt mallet, and hit the head about 1.5" from the bearing edge directly between the lug and the center of the drum head. Next tune all lugs to the closest frequency. Once you have all the lugs tuned at their lowest base frequency, you now have a equal tuning starting place. Next in a circular tuning pattern start tuning the drum up to the next frequency. This will be in small increments. I turn the wrench a 1/4 of it’s possible total movement. I keep tuning up in frequency until I reach the first whole major note. In the case of my Djembe this was a A @ 220 Hz. With all lugs tuned to 220 Hz at 1.5" from the bearing edge, hitting the drum at dead center yielded a frequency of 55 Hz which is an A note at a lower octave. I hope you find the useful.

- Waste of money!!!!!

This was the worst amount of money I’ve ever spent in my life

- Love


- Every time I hit the drum it gives me a different frequency

Super inconsistent.

- Love it!

This app is amazing, it blows away the original idrum tune app! I especially like the resonant head tuning feature. 😀 no flaws or inaccurate readings either.

- Watch videos on it

Hard at first, watch YouTube videos for help.


The app is a little non-intuitive at first if you’ve never tuned drums before, like me. There are YouTube tutorials that are very helpful. Also, I had some feedback about the interface and got a helpful response in no time. The app is very well thought out and can get amazing results, if you have the patience to see it through. And for only a few dollars, it might save you from wanting to buy a new drum set.

- Fantastic

I have never been able to get my various kits over the years to sound right. I was just about to purchase the TuneBot product when I discovered this app. Apart from saving a significant amount of money, this app finally helped me tune up my kit properly. There is a truckload of information to read if you want to delve into the science of it all. The bottom line is you can tune up your drums properly, and significantly improve the sound. I have had a need to contact the author and the response has been fast and helpful. I thoroughly recommend this app.

- It worked for me, the first time I tried.

I’m a guitarist, who wouldn’t play any instrument, if I had to tune it by ear. I have used electronic guitar tuners since the early 80’s. I have a drum kit that I enjoy playing from time to time. Sometimes, I get serious about it, for a month or so. But, every instrument eventually goes enough out of tune, it isn’t pleasing to play. That’s what happened with my drum kit. This drum tuner helped me. I have all my toms and the snare tuned. The toms even play a melody! I’m very happy and the money I spent on this app., was a fraction of any other method I’m aware of. Worth the money. It took a little working out (just getting the concept in my head of what was happening ), but the tutorial videos were fairly easy to understand and there is an informative manual in the app. After one use, I understand it and I love it, because I’m enjoying playing my kit so much and recording it, instead of using drum machines.

- Brilliant

As far as I can tell this app works as well or better than hardware tuners costing 10 or 15 times as much. I have had years of experience tuning drums and was pretty happy with the results, but this was before the Internet so I never looked into the theory of tuning. Now it’s everywhere- articles, videos..... and in this app! My pitch sense is pretty good but this takes it to the next level. I find I use the spectrum analyser a lot as it gives great visibility of what is happening. Highly recommended.

- Good TOOL

Vraiment plus complet que je ne croyais !!!!!

- Pretty Good!

It’s pretty good, it’s not always accurate so multiple readings have to be made. It’s not a $100 Tune-Bot or Drum Dial, but for $3 this app is worth it. Plus there is a great tutorial included to get anyone started on the intricacies of tuning a drum kit, which I found very helpful for beginners and experts alike.

- Amazing. Returned my drumdial day after buying this app.

I’ve tried a lot of methods and gadgets to tune drums. This was the best and the cheapest. I drove straight to L&M and returned my drum dial the day after buying this.

- The best app and customer service

Just bought the app yesterday and can’t believe how good it is. The app is intuitive and very sensitive to tuning. As an inexperienced drum tuner this app has been a God send. I have communicated with the developer and he responded quickly with multiple in depth answers. This app is highly recommended. If I could rate it a 6 stars I would.

- iDrumtune Pro

A valuable tool to significantly reduce the 'guesswork' in tuning - for all levels - and particularly those with compromised hearing! The comprehensive literature in the app - and more so on the website - is worth the minimal price of admission. Customer service is equally impressive. Congratulations!

- Inconsistent waste of time/money

Purchased this app with high hopes. Quickly realized that the app is very inconsistent and will just throw random numbers at you. Was tuning my lugs on my floor Tom, was close to 111 hertz, made minor adjustments and my initial lug went to 200 hertz. Similar happened with all of my drums.

- Very help application

Try this application and Tune-bot for reach Each tom frequency is the best for fine tunning and sound like Rock My kit tom size 8-10-12-13-14-15-16-18 white emperor Snare 14 emperor X and 22 bass drum fiberskyne powerstroke 3 with black ambassador for ress.

- Amazing App for all drummers!

My name is Jayda, you can find me on Instagram or YouTube under the name @drummerjayda. I have been using this App for a long while now and it has been a life saver for me. I have tried many other methods and tools to tune my drums but this app has been by far the very best, easiest and most inexpensive tool I’ve ever used. I’m so incredibly happy with this App! Please don’t hesitate to purchase it! It’s on par with some of the most expensive tuning equipment out there on the market at a fraction of the price. Highly recommended!!

- Don’t buy this.

Terrible app. Inaccurate and poorly designed. It’s a toy - Save your money.

- Incredible tool

This app is amazing, Now I know exacly what to do.
