Just what i was looking for!

By Charles Defilippo

from new haven

I walked into GC not expecting to buy anything when this drum caught my eye, got it second hand (looked almost new). for the price it was worth trying out, when i got home it sounded even better than it did in the store which doesnt always happen, bottom line Great snare many different styles, it pops and has a great feel!

OUTSTANDING!!

By Daniel Torres

from Munster, IN

When I bought this snare I thought it might not as be as good as the maple version but i tried this little snaper out it blew me away! It has a nice Pop to it and can be tuned very high. Although when i bought mines it was in Ebay so it wasn't new but the sound was still amazing. If you tuned very well and tighten the snare wires a tad bit it can sound like a proffectional Pearl Maple Piccolo. BEST PICCOLO SNARE AT THE PRICE.

EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE

By Zach Purcell

from Detroit, Michigan

Well, bought this snare a few days ago and I have to say it's very impressive! Its small 13x3" size will be very unexpecting, this snare has monster volume and will cut through any type of noises on stage like amplifiers and the crowd. Throw on some good heads and perform a little fine tuning and you've got yourself a beautiful snare with tons of volume and a lot of crack. And the price? With this very inexpensive price you can not go wrong.

My favorite snare!!!

By Chris A.

from Denison TX

I've had this snare for about 8 years now. It's been my main snare through several U.S. tours, countless gigs and many studio projects. I've never needed anything else! Whether you want a nice accent snare or a main snare it's perfect! I use Evans Genera dry batter heads and no one can believe how huge this snare sounds. Great buy!!!

AWESOME!

By Anthony

from Port Jefferson Sta, NY

I bought this the other day and it rocks! I used to be adamant about using a piccolo snare rather than a 6.5 inch snare. I'm so happy I made the switch! I bought this drum to use as a tight popping snare for an R&B project i've been involved in. This is now my new rock snare! I will be buying another tomorrow to tune higher for the project I bought it for. This is a must have. Very versatile for any style. I am an aqaurian guy but I have an Evans reverse dot on it and it cracks beautifully. It has a little ring but that's just the head. With a thicker head on it, it could be that classic 80's rock snare if you wanted it to be. Also, it is solid! Not some cheap toy. I was shocked at the price! It sounds like a 400 dollar snare even with stock heads!

It is perfect

By Cameron Kelly

from Rockingham, North Carolina

I brought this Pearl piccolo today and I love it. It has a great pop. You cant beat the price either. If you dont already have it I would buy one. It is light weight and easy to tune.

A One of a Kind Top Piccolo Snare

By Dominick Guerra

from Flushing, Michigan

wow iv owned this snare for about 2 years now. i use it as a main snare,a second snare to the left of my hi hats (a custom mastersounds =D) or even as a back up incase my main snare breaks. i really love the attack and response of this little blue beauty. And because its a small 13" snare its perfect for on the go! plus it kinda saves me some money on heads lol. but all in all its built very well by my guys at pearl!

this snare is a steal!!!!

By allen

from san antonio tx

this is one of the best investments i ever made, the heads are great especially the resonant but im more of a remo controlled sound guy for batter and it pops out, the steel is solid as a rock so theres no need to wory about warping, the lugs are as smooth as can be, but the sound is so pro like, whitout moongel it sounds like a old school chad smith snare if tuned right but can be poppy like a david silveria piccolo, its worth every cent!!!
