It does in the sense that a well seated head will be easier to tune as well as stay tuned longer. While you can do this with out one, I find that it is a good investment because it helps you understand the physics of tuning. By physics of tuning , I mean it helps you see how much adjacent lugs effect each other.
True, but people assume that it's a drum tuner when it's not.
