Did the name 'Pork Pie' get your attention? If so, mission accomplished. But it's not the name that you really need to hear: it's the outstanding sound of these drums in action.

By taking their time and paying meticulous attention to every detail, Pork Pie has earned a well-deserved reputation for delivering products that stand without equal.
The story behind Pork Pie is a familiar one, because it's the same story that dozens of the world's premier instrument builders are based on: one talented craftsman saw an opportunity to build world-class instruments and put in the hard work to make it happen. Bill Detamore is the mastermind behind Pork Pie, and his work came into the spotlight during the 1980s. Ever since then, Pork Pie drums have been sought after by percussionists all over the world.
Thankfully, they're also easier to get your hands on than they've ever been before. In fact, there are so many to choose from that you'll definitely want to pause, take a deep breath, and make a checklist of exactly what you're looking for. Armed with that, all you need to do is search for the Pork Pie drum or accessory that ticks all the boxes for you.
Replacing your old starter set or maybe even just looking to jump right into the deep end with Pork Pie for your first kit? Take a look at complete sets like the Little Squealer or Hip Pig Shell Packs. Prefer to pick each and every drum individually? Have a look at the wide variety of snares, toms and bass drums to build your dream ensemble from the ground up. Just trying to accessorize? Check out the Pork Pie Drum Rug and Throne Bag... and all the thrones themselves, for that matter.
Whenever you're looking to upgrade your drum kit, Pork Pie's selection should be the first place you look. Bill Detamore might not be making each and every one by hand anymore, but the uncompromising approach to build quality, craftsmanship and performance hasn't changed. If it's the best that you're after, Pork Pie drums and accessories belong on your wish list.
