It IS a snare drum...

Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion Piccolo Snare Drum:

My only issue with this snare is the throw-off mechanism. The lever hits the rim when on, and hits the shell when off. It was very difficult to get it adjusted to where the snares would release all the way. I don't have them real tight. I like to hear the snare with the lightest tap. But even then, whith the snares all the way off, they touched the head enought to rattle when hit. I moved the snares back and forth on the head, set it up with the throw-off adjusted to its furthest out, furthest in, and every combination possible. I replaced the nylon bands with strings. That helped a lot, but I finally got it. I don't know how. But It was time-consuming. Once adjusted with new heads, it has a pretty good tuning range
What features? It has everything required....I don't know what else you could add.
Seems to be very good quality. It is quite heavy for a piccolo. It looks very cool with the black chrome, offset lugs, and die-cast hoops.
For the price, good little snare.

Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion Piccolo Snare Drum:

This is probably the worst sounding snare drum I've ever had. Changed heads, hoops, wires, etc. Nothing would make it better. Cheap, tinny sound. Its very pretty if you just want an appearances-only side snare and you can tolerate the ugly pointed lugs and ocdp throwoff. Mine got re-sold at a big loss. I'm no rooky. Had l-o-t-s of snare drums and been playing 50 years.

    Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion Piccolo Snare Drum:

    Alright, so to anyone who's considering this drum, go ahead and hard-pass on it. Here are a few reasons why:
    First, I have nothing against OCDP (as I also own the chestnut-ash snare drum, and love it), but their quality control is terrible. This snare drum's hoops were barely tightened, so little so that the hoops were probably sliding around during shipping and tore the bottom head. Not a huge deal.
    Second, there are many design flaws that make this drum unacceptable. Inside the shell, in lieu of a nut on the other end of the lug screws, these geniuses decided to use little hollow plastic dome-shaped things (maybe for better isolation?) which the screws push through before enough tension required to secure the lugs is applied. Biggest fault I've ever seen in a snare drum.
    Last, I've never been a fan of the OCDP throw, which is not an uncommon opinion, as someone mentioned the issues with it above.

    TLDR; The only reason it got 1 star (besides not being able to give no stars) is because I love me some die-cast hoops, black nickel hardware/off-set lugs, and the shell seems well-made. Besides the aesthetics, this drum is unacceptable and should not be purchased by anyone (experienced or not) ever.

    Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion Piccolo Snare Drum:

    Good snare drum w/good tone and large sound for a small footprint drum. However, the Q/C needs to be improved because the snare control mechanism was dangling so I removed the top head to re-attach it and tightened the hardware, also discovered "all" the lugs were loose and needed to be tightened. Spent a few minutes getting everything tighted down, re-assembled & tuned-up. Easy to tune, great tone, great rims for responsive rim-shots. Unique appearance as well. Great little drum!

    Poor Product Construct

    By Dakka

    from Caribbean, Grenada

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Orange County Drum & Percussion Piccolo Snare Drum:

    I received this product in October of this year (2017). Sadly to say I am extremely disappointed. Whenever I try to tighten the bolts on the outside to tune the snare, the bolts on the inside loosen and fall apart. I am therefore unable to use the drum as it just does not work. Extremely poor product. I need a replacement as a matter of urgency please.
