What's a good way to make a tuner for drums / chimes?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently composing an Octet using drums, but the tuner I'm using is fairly inefficient. It's basically a bunch of quarter notes to make sure the drums are beating in tune, but it's long, isn't always accurate, and you have to pay attention to make sure it's in tune because it's not obvious if it isn't. Does anyone know a possibly better way to tune a drum?

Have you tried to make it a silent tuner? 

​Doesn't work considering the fact that an off tune percussion instrument doesn't work the same way as an off tune normal instrument. Off tune percussion just plays off beat, doesn't play the wrong notes.
