TIMP-TUNER™ WORKS EVEN WHEN
THE BAND IS PLAYING
ABOUT THIS DEMONSTRATION: While the band is playing, the timpanist quickly adjusts a flat Eb (bar pattern moving down) to correct pitch (bar pattern steady). Then, in only about 6 seconds, he repitches the drum to an accurate C#. All this while others are playing.
Note that the use of repeated light taps keeps the drum resonating at its fundamental and minimizes the influence of sympathetic vibrations induced by the other instruments. The player's taps on the drum in this noisy environment are a little heavier than he would use in a quite room, but they are inaudible relative to the surrounding sound.
