Its a solid drum, it has a good solid brass sound, yet a good deal of beef too. Its got a wide tuning range, which should work for a wide array of playing styles. Stock heads are ok but should be changed, snares are not bad. Its solidly built, and looks really sharp. The throws a cheapie, but so what it does the job. The drum definitely looks and sounds more expensive than its price point. I shopped a long time for this drum. I watched and listened to plenty of Y-Tube vids before I purchased as well. What you hear on the vids is how the drum sounds. I've played a Black Beauty before, and lets face it, if you want a Black Beauty you need to save up and buy one. This drum is not a Black Beauty. That said, its a very good sounding drum at a very very reasonable price, and it should be part of every drummers arsenal. 5 stars because the drum never said it was a Black Beauty, but it is as advertized and more..

I'll start off by saying the look of this drum is pretty sweet. The throw-off, snares and heads are below average at best though. When I received this drum, it came warped from the manufacture and there was a dent near the badge. Muscians Friend immediatetly sent a return label for an exchange and was very helpful during this transaction. While waiting for the drum to return to Musicians Friend, I went to a local music shop that had this drum on display. Their drum was also warped, so I opted for my money back instead. Two examples was enough for me! I was hoping for an affordable brass snare for performing live, as the reviews are numerous and positive. Unfortunately I didn't have the same experience. I'd suggest comparing other drum companies snares in the same price range before buying this one. I ended up purchasing a brass snare from another comapny in the same price range and the difference was incredible.

            Comments about Pork Pie Big Black Brass Snare Drum with Tube Lugs and Chrome Hardware:

            This snare sounds as good as a Black Beauty. Its tone is amazing at any tuning. I'd recommend an Evans G12 or G2 with a Hazy 300 reso; a dry head like a Genera Dry or Reverse Dot flattens the sound too much. This snare works well with literally any style of music; a friend of mine even borrowed it for a concert band application.

            Quality is not one of Pork Pie's strong suits. The drum I bought was warped, resulting in unusually high tension at one lug on the bottom side. This prevented any high tuning on the reso. This problem was worsened after one of my bandmates dropped the drum after a gig. This caused any new resonant heads I put on to break during initial tuning. Luckily, I had purchased a coverage plan, so I was able to get a refund. I don't think I'll be buying another Pork Pie snare for quite a while...

            TL;DR: Great sound, poor quality. Just be careful when handling. Buy a case and a coverage plan.

            Comments about Pork Pie Big Black Brass Snare Drum with Tube Lugs and Chrome Hardware:

            I am very impressed with this drum. All I did is change the top head to a Evans G2 coated and the drum came alive. This drum has an amazing sound that would work great in several different types of music like R&B,Funk and even Rock. It has a great pop that sounds like Stewart Copelands snare from the Police days.

                    Out of the box this snare sounds okay, but when i decided to tune it the stock reso head ripped. Luckily i had extra heads and after replacing both and the wires this thing sounds absolutely incredible! Ive tuned this thing so many different ways and it sounds great at any level. I get compliments everytime i play with the big black BOB and i dont feel guilty leaving my other snares unplayed

                        Bought this and used it at a gig the same night. Didn't even change the tuning from the way the store had it, it already sounded great. Very glad I bought this.

                        The stock batter head is pretty weak if you play heavy. I nearly put a hole in it after just a half hour of playing.

                        It has a nice metallic tone characteristic of metal drums, but I don't think it is too terribly bright.

                        Huge volume potential. Rimshots are very fun to play with this drum.

                        Very sensitive too. Ghost notes simply sound the way they should, defined yet unobtrusive.

                        Was shopping around for a snare and chose BOB after reading a million amazing reviews and here goes another one. I LOVE this drum. It's great for the price but I could have paid double and I'd say the same thing. Can be used for almost any kind of music and boy does it stand out. I put an Evans ST dry coated for the batter, hazy 300 snare side and some puresound blasters on immediately and I got that crack I've wanted. This thing sounds great loud! Should be in every drummers arsenal.
