Tuning your drums

Tuning is fundamental to create the perfect harmony between the drum player and his or her instrument. It is a process that requires a lot of time and attention and needs to be carried out before each performance.

TQ drums can boast a high expertise in the world of drum playing, which is made of absolute precision and perfect timing. This is why it has developed AereO-key, the practical drum skin tuning key with a unique design, which has been specifically studied to make your preparation for each performance even more simple.

How often have you lost your tuning key precisely when you needed it the most, in that exact moment when you needed to prepare your drums for that one piece that was going to make the crowd go wild? How many times were you distracted by that incessant metallic rattling caused by the imprecise bush of your low-cost tuning key?

Before an important performance, concentration and harmony are absolutely crucial. Nothing should distract the musicians or create difficulties, nothing can go wrong.

Designed by a drummer, for drummers

Luca Galmarini, founder of TQ drums and drummer, is perfectly aware of how stressful and annoying it can be not to be able to find your tuning key when you need it, and, consequently, not knowing for sure if your drums are 100% perfect.

This is why he designed and created AereO-Key, the magnetic, practical, and functional tuning key that will stay right by your side during each performance.

AereO-Key’s design is one-of-a-kind and conceived to satisfy drummers’ specific needs.

It’s magnetic

You can attach AereO-Key to any metallic part of your set and always keep it at hand, without clutter or annoying rattling.

It’s precise

The cap on the magnet has symbols that allow you to rotate the tension rod clockwise or counter clockwise up to 360o. This way you have a precise visual reference to tune all your tension rods.

It’s fast

In case you need to replace the skins on your drums, AereO-Key will allow you to tighten the tension rods quickly while avoiding unnatural movements with your wrist.

It’s ergonomic

The shape and weight distribution in AereO-Key are the fruit of a careful and highly detailed ergonomic study.

It’s silent

The coupling bush for the tension rods is so precise that once you put it in place, it significantly reduces all movements caused by the vibrations of the percussions.

It’s resistant

The neodymium magnet is enclosed in a special unbreakable cup and the nickel coating ensures much higher durability than chroming, for instance, which tends to peel off or deteriorate.

It’s 100% Made in Italy

AereO-Key was entirely designed and made in Italy in order to guarantee top quality for all drum players.

It’s 100% inspired by the area where i live

AereO-Key is shaped like an airplane in homage to the territory where it was born. A land that boasts 200 years of history in the construction of aircrafts.

Solida, indistruttibile e di design. Ispirata dalla storia aereonautica del suo territorio

Bussola ad alta precisone anti tintinnii

Forma ergonomica studiata per un uso senza sforzi

I simboli sul tappo, utili per un’accordatura precisa

Il potente magnete per attaccarla su ogni parte metallica del set

What drummers saying about AereO-Key

Why should I spend more for an AereO-Key instead of buying a standard tuning key?

Because you would be buying a design object which is 100% Made in Italy and which can give you a functionality that other keys can’t achieve. The resistance and sturdiness of AereO-Key ensures that you only need to spend your money once, because with time prices fade away, but quality stays.

Is the magnet strong enough to keep the key in place and secured even with the drum’s vibrations?

If you place AereO-Key on the flat metallic parts of your set, its magnet ensures that the key stays securely in place and that it resists the stress caused by a standard playing style.

I don’t understand how it can help me while tuning my drums

AereO-Key has a plastic cap that covers the magnet. This cap has symbols which can be used as a reference in two main ways:
• If your instrument has already been tuned but you want to try to change the tension, the symbols on the cap allow you to rotate the rod clockwise or counter clockwise at quarter, half, or three-quarter turns or at 360o.

• If you replace the skin on your drum, we suggest you hold the magnet still and turn the key with the thumb and index finger of one hand, while the other hand turns the wings of the AereO-Key as you count the turns until the tension rod touches the rim. Now, you can work on the tension by using the symbols on the cap as a reference.

Why does it have nickel coating?

TQ Drums decided to focus on the resistance and sturdiness of the key as a main goal. The nickel coating ensures longer durability, as opposed to other types of treatment (like chroming), which tend to peel off in time or deteriorate.

Are there any limitations in using AereO-Key?

AereO-Key is sold with a user’s manual translated into five languages. All the limitations concerning the use of the magnet, its disposal, and the limitations of use of the tuning key are specified in the manual.


The Made in Italy quality of the AereO-Key tuning key is the strong point of the product and what every drummer needs.
