Drum set tuning is the process of tensioning drumheads on a drum to produce a pleasing drum tone. A drummer tunes the drums using a drum key, a small, square socket-wrench that fits over the tension rods.
Drum tuning styles and techniques vary between different drums, music genres, and the preferences of drummers. In addition to tuning drums, drummers often treat drums with muffling material to alter the drum sound.
