    Comments about Pearl B1330 Brass Piccolo Snare Drum:

    This snare has the crack you'd expect from a piccolo snare and the overtones are minimal. I play it wide open, no tape, no gel, no muffling at all. I use it as a side snare and as my main snare, depending on the music we're playing. I've played $600 piccolo's that didn't sound this good!

    Comments about Pearl B1330 Brass Piccolo Snare Drum:

    I've owned this brass piccolo snare for over ten years now. My drum is the older version - same shell and lugs, different badge.

    I usually use it as a backup snare in case I break a string or have an issue with my main snare. I also use it as the main snare for quieter acoustic gigs, or for funk/pop gigs where the snare will be mic'ed and I'm after a short, bright, 'crack' sound.

    Unlike some users, I prefer it tuned medium high, not 'cranked'. This gives a sound similar to a standard snare, but with a quicker snare response and less overall volume. I think the brass shell helps to give it a slightly warmer tone than other piccolos, but still less than full sized snares.

    I often use the drum for small acoustic shows where my larger snares will be too loud. I can play at a comfortable level, the drum sounds quite loud and crisp to me, but doesn't project much volume to the audience. Good for churches, weddings, restaurants, etc.

    When you hit the drum, the snares respond instantly, either due to the shorter distance or less air volume. You can really feel and hear the difference and this would make an excellent practice drum for rudimental playing.
    When mic'd from above, there is more snare in the sound, perhaps because the snares are actually closer to the mic.

    A final bonus with the 13" size is that your legs fit around it more easily. You can bring the hihat closer if you wish, or move the drum closer or slightly to the left.

    Overall, I wouldn't recommend this as an all-rounder, but it does certain things very well. This brass model is more versatile than some other piccolo snares.

        I love the 1330, snappy sound with just what you would expect from the brass shell. Very good sound and super good look to accent your kit. Very well built as you would expect from Pearl.
        Just buy it !!

        A Hidden Gem

        By Kevin McGovern

        from Pittsburgh. PA

        Comments about Pearl B1330 Brass Piccolo Snare Drum:

        You usually see these sitting on shelf and given its size & rather pedestrian appearance, move on to whack on that 8" deep Black Panther. Well, one thing I notice about Pearl, is that you should never underestimate their products. One of their nicest-sounding wood drums, IMHO is their maple 14 x 4" soprano snare. This brass one rates the same. It has a terrific, brassy snap with zero overring (even as fitted with those ghastly Pro-Tone heads!), extremely articulate and evenly bodied in tone. Sure, a Ferrone sig 14 x 6.5 brass will really stand out, but this puppy would account for itself do quite well for most tasks, except death metal or maybe as a marching drum. Normally when asked, I recommend an Acrolite to someone with a junky snare who wants to move up cheap. But I can go with this one as well. Especially for the smaller-statured drummer who needs the extra inch for the inseam at the throne, or someone with a Rhythm Traveler wanting to improve the sound for those dinner-cruise gigs where the bass drum has to sit on your foot... Nice drum, good price.

        Best Piccolo for the $$$

        By ytndndrummer

        from does it matter?

        Comments about Pearl B1330 Brass Piccolo Snare Drum:

        I've had this snare for about a year now and have had a lot of fun with it. You can fit it virtually anywhere for accents or in front of you if your in a small or mic'd enviroment, have a micro kit, play pop or thrash where zero resonance is a must. Admittedly, there are a few quirks such as it does sound best when it's marching style cranked. With this it would be better to have 2.3mm hoops instead of the 1.6's it comes with. I repaired a friends snare with that had 1.6's and the hoop was actually twisted around the tension rod head. Also, for those who say it covers any style, I feel it needs at least another two inches of depth before it would adapt to all kits. I currently have a remo clear controlled sound with a moongel on it for that loud, fast crack. It does come with the USA made remo ambassadors(coated batter and medium snare) so no need for the upgrade with purchase like other snares in this range. So if you're looking for a piccolo under $200, this is IT.

        good piccolo snare with a little tuning

        By Thunder

        from Enterprise, Al

        Comments about Pearl B1330 Brass Piccolo Snare Drum:

        After tuning it up it has an incredible ring and crack. I would still like the pitch of the top and bottom heads a little higher. I am looking for a very quick and powerful pop and snap with little or no ring. I am very pleased anyways. This is a good sounding snare for the price. It makes a good primary snare or secondary snare as well.

        The best piccolo all around

        By Ucantbemesorry

        from Mansfield, Oh

        Comments about Pearl B1330 Brass Piccolo Snare Drum:

        This snare is great, I use it in my youth group nights at church and it just cuts right through everything. I use it as my primary for its nice little sound. It can be used in any musical scenario. I have used a Ludwig maple piccolo but it doesn't compare to this one!
