The DTS system is a very nice solution for anyone tired of or baffled by the drum tuning process. Put one on both heads of a tom and you'll quickly discover all the tuning variations you can accomplish. You'll discover you can make your toms pitch bend up or down. Make your snare sound fat with a long decay for a ballad and quickly switch to snappy staccato for the next fast tune. It's all about control. As a bonus, your drums will never be out of tune. The even pressure around the rims balance out the stretched head as you play.
