  • Pork Pie Powerhouse

    As reviewed by Kevin on 6/23/2009

    I just purchased this snare on 6/18 (Pork Pie Little Squealer Snare Drum - 7" x 13") from the Central Dallas store after comparing this drum to three other 13? snare drums. 1. Pork Pie Brass Patina Snare Drum, 2. Tama Metalworks Steel Snare Drum, and 3. Yamaha Steve Jordan Snare. I was looking for a 13? snare drum to add to my collection. I had read a lot of great reviews about the Steve Jordan snare but compared to this drum (PP Little Squealer) ? no contest. Also, the price of the SJ snare is much more expensive (though great quality). The SJ snare seemed to like being tuned in the higher range (much like SJ's snare tuning), but sounded a little choked for my taste. I have to give a nod to the Tama snare for a great drum that is well made and a great value (low $). The Tama snare had wood sounding overtones, even though it was a metal snare drum (warm sounding). The PP Patina (brass) drum was my second choice overall. If you like metal snares this drum sounded bright and crisp with that brass ring! It sounded good in all range of tunings. I have played drums for many, many years and have a lot of snare drums, including some fantastic sounding American made Pork Pie snares. This drum is one of the best sounding snares I have ever heard! This Little Squealer snare drum is crisp and very open sounding with a lot of power. I was worried about the volume of a 13? drum but I played this drum as soon as a got it home for a couple of hours and it is very loud (not sure if it has to do with all the holes in the shell). This is a great value for the money. The drum is not much to look at (plain flat black finish), but this drum really works! You can tune it up or down and it sounds great! I put an Emperor Coated drum head on it (tuned pretty tight) and it absolutely kills! I liked the fact that the store let me play all these snare drums ? good customer service is important to me and the Sales Rep was very helpful.

  • BANG for your buck

    As reviewed by Animal on 9/20/2009

    Low on funds and need a snare that will cut through the loudest amps? Solution - Pork Pie Little Squealer 13"x7" Vented. I own several snare drums and finally found the sound I was looking for when I found this drum (have not purchased another one since). I wanted a snare that offered a loud, cutting CRACK like a piccolo but with deeper tone - this is it. I have gigged this snare for the past two years and can't wait to hear it recorded. Love the look, love the response and only had to change the head (cause I tore through the Pork Pie head in about 2 weeks - I hit hard). The only complaint I can post comes from my band mates - they say this snare drum hurts their ears....they just don't understand.

  • This snare was made for YOU

    As reviewed by ChasingGloryDrums on 1/26/2010

    I dont write reviews about anything, EVER. But, after purchasing this snare, I had to. So I will make this extremelly simple. BUY IT! This snare looks great. It plays even better! It has great tunabilty that holds. Tune it high, tune it low.. it doesnt matter, this snare preforms as if it were a 5"X14" or a 6"X10", it's rim shot can pierce thru any stack you put it next to. Personally it outperforms any snare out on the market, even those priced at twice as much! If I could give it 10 stars I would. BUY IT!!!
