Does anybody here use Tama TW100? If so, post your tension values.

Mine are(batter / reso):
12x10 tom 55 / 65
14x12 tom 50 / 65
22x16 BD 50 / 60
14x6.5 snare drum 80 / 80

PS - please post here your opinions on that device. Let's talk about TW 100 and Drum Dial:)

Yes it is worth the money. It works best when you know how to tune your drums. Then you tune your drums and use the TW od DrumDial to record the tuning.

It's definitely worth buying. It enables you too tune your drums in high-volume situations and makes your tuning repeatable :)

Well that's me sold. I know how to tune my kit, but if I can make it quicker then I'm all game!

Thanks Shalaq!

They cost around $50 here in the States. I've been wanting to get a tension watch. Looks like it's a good buy.
