Snare drum

By Drumer

from Macomb, MI

Comments about Pork Pie Pig Lite Acrylic Snare Drum:

This is the best snare drum! Sounds amazing when I put a 13" Clean Black Dot Remo head on it. I thought it sounded better with that then a Coated Head.

WOW!

By drummersdoitwithrhythm

Comments about Pork Pie Pig Lite Acrylic Snare Drum:

I bought this snare after I heard the crack it made in the store. Then Zack at GC said "You should hear this w/ the Evans Genera Dry head" He put it on and tuned it and I ran out of the store so fast go to and play. This REALLY wakes up the neighbors. It's adjusted very tight too! Definitely a snare to have if you want people to hear you!

Pork Pie owns

By ZildjianGuy08

from New Orleans, LA

Comments about Pork Pie Pig Lite Acrylic Snare Drum:

I've been owning this drum for about a year. I'd tried many snare drums of many brands, but this Pork Pie Acrylic Piglite snare is by far my favorite. This snare has that perfect crack and popping sound I've been looking for, and the snare wires don't rattle at all after you hit it. The rest of the hardware is also very solid. It is also capable of producing many different sounds as you move around the head. It has the crack of a piccolo snare, and the warmth of a deep maple snare with the perfect amount of ring. I love it, and I will never play anoher brand of snare drum again. Well...there is no other brand, and even your drum-challenged bandmates will agree!

An acrylic snare that's full of surprises

By Nick

from Upland, CA

Comments about Pork Pie Pig Lite Acrylic Snare Drum:

This Pork Pie Piglite acrylic snare would be a great addition to any kit. For players who demand power and versatility from their drums, this snare is full of surprises. The consrtuction of the drum is also something special. The drum features a bright orange shell, and chrome hardware. The use of vintage-style tube lugs is also a unique feature. I could go on and on about this one. Get into your local Guitar Center and check this one out! you will not be dissapointed!

Awesome pop

By Gtron

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Pork Pie Pig Lite Acrylic Snare Drum:

Not only does this snare look awesome under stage lights, and delivers the crispest pop I've heard from any snare. Very loud and overwhelming, I recommend it for any hard core Metal/Rock drummer. You will not find more guts in a snare!

Pork Pie Piglite Acrylic Snare

By acrylicaholic

from Norfolk, Va

Comments about Pork Pie Pig Lite Acrylic Snare Drum:

I was looking for a High end snare for the best possible value. I was skeptical about "Acrylic" at first Fearing durability and sound quality. The Pork Pie Piglite Acrylic Snare Drum's good looks caught my eye on the shelf, and the price convinced me to buy. This snare is multi functional in that it can be used for Jazz, or the heaviest of Rock. The Throw is as smooth as I have used. I literally took the Snare from the box to to my kit, and have yet to put a key on the tuning lugs. No need. I love my snare.

Comments about Pork Pie Pig Lite Acrylic Snare Drum:

The Pork Pie Pig-Lite is very sleek! It's got that nice perfect "pop" sound I've always wanted in my snare drum. I really needed an upgrade on my snare, but now this drum has outshined my set!! Nice!!

Surprisingly versatile

By TC

from NYC

Comments about Pork Pie Pig Lite Acrylic Snare Drum:

This acrylic snare from Pork Pie not only looks better than many more expensive acrylic snares, it sounds better, too. It has a great sound right out the box. It's both loud and sensitive and can be tuned for a variety of musical styles. It has a nice pop that sounds especially good with modern rock and new wave, but it also has a warm low end that allows it to sound right at home with classic rock and blues. I originally bought as a second snare for my kit, but it's versatile enough that I've felt comfortable bringing just this one to shows.

One Of My Best

By Cornel " GroovE" Morgan

from Texas & New York

Comments about Pork Pie Pig Lite Acrylic Snare Drum:

I've been playing for about 25 years. And this is one of the best snare's i've picked up. The sound is great, for when you need that soft sound and when you need the big pop.

Best for the money.

By Richard

from Atlantic City, NJ

Comments about Pork Pie Pig Lite Acrylic Snare Drum:

Amazing Price. Amazing Sound. Amazing Snare. If you're looking for a tight loud crack, or a fat deep thud, this snare is right for you. The only faults I've found are the threads on the tuning lugs seem a bit rough and poorly made, but I guess they have to cut corners somewhere to give you such a nice acrylic snare for this price. And the washers on the tuning lugs are steal, not nylon, so tuned on the loose side, the bottom lugs kept coming loose on me, to the point where after a half hour of playing, I'd find myself picking them up off the floor below my snare. Buy a pack of nylon washers with this snare, and you'll be happy you did. Other then these two very small drawbacks, this is simply one of the best sounding snares I have ever played.
