I play drums in a band. I had been using the stock snare for a while, and realized it was time for an upgrade. I bought this because of its low price. It is an amazing snare!!! The pop and crack of it is great. For a stock skin, it lasts a long time. I am very happy with this snare drum, and I'm glad I bought it.

I didn't expect too much. I was quite surprised! It's obvious this is a cheap drum. There is an obvious seam inside the shell. The finish is more like satin as opposed to brilliant chrome. The snares and heads are marginal...at best. Once you dump the snares and replace the heads, this thing actually performs quite well! It rings too much for my taste, but it is easily controlled with a moongel or two. I use it as a side snare, my son uses it as his primary snare. Either way, this is a decent affordable snare.

Great Snare

By Tim

Comments about PDP Piccolo Steel Snare Drum:

I kept having problems with my old snare, so I decided to buy this one because I saw it on sale. It's sounds are sharp and the quality is great. I've had no complaints about anything in reference to this snare. If the specs match what you are looking for, you wont be disapointed in this instrument.

Great snare, great price

By Brady Brignac

from Marrero, LA

Comments about PDP Piccolo Steel Snare Drum:

This snare is worth buying if your looking to expand your kit. The stock head's last a while (1 year and still looking good), and the sound is amazing, with proper tuning. Recommended if your looking for a high pitched, metallic sounding snare, for an extremely low price.

Good Snare Drum

By Mike

from Rocky Point, NY

Comments about PDP Piccolo Steel Snare Drum:

This is a great snare drum, i got it at my local guitar center, and they tuned they way i liked it, and it just sounds great, but there is a little over tone in it so get some dampeners or something. Sound is amazing, i get alot of attack out of it, very loud, and just the way i like, all and all great product for the price and sound of it.

excellent snare... especially for the price

By JOHN D

from moorestown, nj

Comments about PDP Piccolo Steel Snare Drum:

This snare is sick i went to guitarcenter just lookin around and ended up hittin this snare. When i heard the sound, I looked at the price and saw that it was only ... which blew my mind. I bought it on the spot and have been playing it for a little over a year. Even when I got a new kit, the snare that came with it was no match for the pdp piccolo snare. This snare has played through many many shows and still sounds amazing. Even the stock head sounds great, loosely or tightly tuned. The rebound could be be better for my tastes, but overall, its still a dirty snare for the price

Drummer for over 40 years

By Slap Happy Pappy

from Mobile Alabama

Comments about PDP Piccolo Steel Snare Drum:

Well I just bought this drum as a add on for my electronic drum kit, and when I got it home I thought I'd would be awhile setting up this drum from past experiences. But in about ten minutes I had it sounding like I wanted it to sound. The hardware is better than most snares that I'd paid 5 times the price. Good drum, keep it up.

Nice...

By Chris Gonzalez

from Chambersburg, PA

Comments about PDP Piccolo Steel Snare Drum:

This snare is just perfect. It goes with any kind of music. Everything is good, like the pop & the crack u get from this snare is amazing. The only thing you might want to change after a while is the heads, they dont make the snare sound tht good after they take a beating. It is a very good piccolo for its price.

Worth It!

By spencypoo1

from San Luis Obispo

Comments about PDP Piccolo Steel Snare Drum:

This snare is great! I use it as my main snare. Like others have said, a snare head upgrade is mandatory, once I had an Evans Genera HD Dry batter head on, the pop and ring was spectacular. If you're like me, and don't have 300 bucks to throw down for a snare, this is it.

You Will NOT Be Disappointed

By Evans Aki

from Vancouver, Washington

Comments about PDP Piccolo Steel Snare Drum:

I have the PDP X7 Series kit. And I bought this as a second snare for the added depth of my music. The price is a steal for how great the quality of this snare really is. This is a great addition, whether you're looking for a main snare or a second snare.

Comments about PDP Piccolo Steel Snare Drum:

this snare is one of the best piccolo snares out there, before i didnt know of P D, but now i sure do! i love to play The Police and this snare goes great with it!!! WARNING- this is a great snare, easy to tune, ect. but the rim shots are mediocre, not the best ive heard, i was a bit dissapointed but, its still pretty good, for a good price.

AWESOME SNARE!!!!!

By Kai

from Fitchburg, WI

Comments about PDP Piccolo Steel Snare Drum:

I got this snare as my main snare w while ago because my other one was all old and stuff. To put in short words THIS IS AN AWESOME SNARE DRUM!! I honestly have no complaints. I got a new kit, and now this is my secondary snare drum. It works great as both a main and secondary snare. What else can I say? BEST SNARE EVER.

Worth every penny (for me)

By Pat Maweini

from Happyville, MO

Comments about PDP Piccolo Steel Snare Drum:

After reading all the reviews on here and other sites I decided to purchase this snare from my local Guitar Center and I must say I am pleased I did so. Right out of the box I replaced the head with a Remo Ambassador coated head... and it sounded alright. I then played around with different tunings and was slightly frustrated at the snare buzz. It seemed as if it was having difficulty staying in tune so I decided to replace the cheap top hoop with the hoop from a 13" tom that I do not use... great idea! Totally changed the ringyness and buzz and helps it stay in tune better, way better rim shots, also. I've noticed that it still detunes quite quickly but now I know the ideal tension is at 85 (with DrumDial) so retuning it is not an issue. Overall, I'm super pleased with this drum and how it sounds now - definitely worth the $$!!! Can't wait to record with it!
