Basically in short, how do you establish the key of a drone? dunno if this has been asked, i couldnt find it.

So if i take an eerie noise from somewhere, stretch it out bare, add some effects and all that jazz to make a nice ambient drone, how do I then establish what key its in? Is it litrally just a case of playing notes to see what sits and then working out the key, or is there a simpler way? cos everytime i make said drones, i can never work out what i can play over them. thanks in advance and sorry if its already been asked
