Cinch Tuning FAQs

The Cinch Tuning is revolutionary and can be found nowhere else in the market. Whilst maintaining the traditional look of a West African rope-tuned hand drum, cinch tuning provides the fastest means to tune these drums, faster than anything presently used on any percussion instrument on the market.

We are convinced that once this is widely advertised hand drummers will scramble to own instruments with cinch tuning. Thus we believe our competitive position has a dual advantage, quality at reasonable prices, and exclusivity of the cinch system.
