Tuning Drums with the Welch Tuning System

Updated: Jul 30


Tune in seconds while reaching optimal sound and pitch every time? WTS cable tuned drums are paving the way for the future of drum kit hardware!

The Welch Tuning System™ is likely the most dramatic innovation in drum kit hardware that the industry has ever seen. With a minimally invasive design and no drum key required, tuning has become simple and accurate for musicians of all levels.

What is the Welch Tuning System?

The Welch Tuning System (WTS) is a revolutionary integrated drum tuning hardware. A system of pulleys and cable bring both heads into tune with the turn of a single handle, similar to tuning a guitar string. Say goodbye to your drum key!
