Quick and Easy Tuning with the Welch Drums
One point of adjustment to tune each drum. By turning the handle of the Welch Tuning System (WTS) tuning knob, the drum is tuned as a whole, giving off a clear, even sound at any pitch. Tuning drums has never been simpler!
Self-adjusting pulleys allow tension to equalize around the whole drum, resulting in beautifully tuned drums at any pitch.
All pulleys are mounted to the drum hoops, meaning significantly less drum hardware in contact with the shell and up to 90% less holes drilled in the shell, allowing the drum shells to breath and resonate to their full potential.
Artistically designed to be minimally invasive and highlight the look of the shell, our precision engineered die-cast hardware adds even more life to the most beautiful drums.
