      Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

      Excellent quality and workmanship at an unbeatable price point. Right out of the box it comes with Remo Ambassador coated batter and clear snare heads with decent 20 strand steel Pearl snare which is a huge plus as I was ready to upgrade those pieces. Saved me $$. Lugs and triple flange hoops are well made in the Pearl Tradition. Sound is snappy and perfect for reggae drumming rimshots and cross sticking. Right amount of rich overtones w/ no choking for dub, etc.
      Coming from the Mapex MPX steel 13x3 piccolo steel snare at the same price point, I'm glad I sold it as this snare is by far superior in quality and sound. You could see the weld points on the Mapex bearing edges. By contrast, the Pearl bearing edges are completely seamless which has a huge effect on overall sound. I should have known better before buying the Mapex snare as I also own the Masters MCX shell pack which quality and sound is superior imo to many other top brands at that price point. Very happy with this Pearl snare. They hit a home run with this snare which is perfect for reggae drumming.

          Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

          You've read all the reviews from other drummers for the Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" steel snare. I have owned this product for about 6 mos. now and I can tell you, the positive comments from the reviewers are all 100% correct! The Pearl steel piccolo packs a powerfl crack for a small 13" x 3" drum. Tune it tight and it will hold its tune and blows away the other wannabe piccolos. The coated Ambassadore does wear down sort of quickly over a few months but since this snare has become my main snare drum, that's to be expected. I own a Pearl 14 x 5 steel snare and a Yamaha stage custom steel snare. The pearl doesnt stay tuned very well...the Yamaha is a good all round snare drum, but I love the Piccolo. It's just a cut above the rest. It has become my main snare drum. And don't get me started on the price, it's very affordable. BUY IT!

          I've had this for about 4 years now. I have tried loads of different tuning and head combos and it was great through it all. I'd recomend it.Its good for recording I used to use it as a side snare but now its my mane stay.
          Very user friendly.

          from Oneida,NY

          Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

          The color is subtle but stands out. Tonally can carry but still be light and quiet.
          Love the easy switch on and off
          Very durable. Can take a beating
          Very fairly priced

          My Pearl Piccolo

          Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

          A very great value snare drum. It's nice for the price and i've been pleased so far.
          I really like how thin it is, the sound suprises me for the size of the drum.
          Very Nice!
          Can't beat this!

          Don't overlook this snare drum

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

          I own this snare for some time now, it definitely has a great sound to it, starting from the short steel shell which is perfect for high tunings and it also helps out drying the drum a bit, to the solid lugs and all-steel throw off with strap cords to attach the snare wire which is a nice thing for a snare of this price range, the only thing that is already good obviously but could have been nice to get is a couple of 2.3mm pearl hoops, but then again I think that's meant for another range of pearl snare drums, anyways this drum is fantastic for its price!

          Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

          I bought this snare to be used as a secondary and it quickly became the only snare drum I use. It replaced the aluminum CD I was using which cost me over $500.00. The solid crack and volume is incredable. Any one who owns this drum and doesn't like it has to be from another planet. I added a sound ring to eliminate the extra ring which didn't really bother me and now it's even better. The price and sound makes it the snare drum deal of the century.

          killer snare

          By jcthedrummer

          from South GA

          Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

          I've had this snare for about 4 years now and I have nothing bad to say about it. I bought it as a side snare but it quickly became my primary. Even my drum instructor at the time made several comments about how sharp it is. If you want a great snare for an even better price, this is it.

          SUPERB Snare

          By PearlSnareOwner

          from Chicago, IL

          Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

          This snare is very cutting and powerful. I started using it as a side snare, just to give my set some different sound, but after a while, I realized I'd started using it more than my primary snare! I switched this drum to my primary, and haven't looked back since! It's surprisingly powerful for such a shallow shell, and it cuts through heavy music like a knife through butter. I HIGHLY recommend this snare.
