How many drum keys do you own?


I personally own about 10. I don't know where they all are at the moment (I have children!)

I have three now but everytime I go into a music store, I look for getting some more keys to add to my collection. I'd really like to get myself some Pro Mark keys... absolutely beautiful

I've probably also got about 10.

When we toured the US the drummer in the band we toured with kept losing his drum keys and borrowing mine, which he would then lose. Since then I've had a drum key on the end of a retractable chain which I keep on my belt at all times. There's also a bottle opener on the chain, it's my tour kit - everything I need to survive life on the road.

Tour kit: drum key and bottle opener?
Haha, that means on tour you drum and drink...
Have you ever gotten a DUI? (Drumming under the influence) har har

I have 2 keys, which I lose all the time and spend countless hours looking for them. What a pain.

4 at least
I've got a thick pearl one that came with the kit, a right-angled one with an allen key at the other end. I got that for a gibralter rack I used to have but with the right angle it's great for tuning. I've got another with a clip and a tension tuning key that I bought before I figured out how to tune.

I'd like to get a speed winder to help with changing heads.

2 right now, both thick pearl keys.

I think the best one that I owned was an evens key that you could set to a certion tension and turn it until it clicked.
it made it real easy to tune the heads quick if I used the same heads everytime I replaced them.
