I bought this snare to go with my pork pie custom kit. I have a 14 x 5 porky with my kit and wanted something with a little more life. The snare is great. Do not expect low warm tones. This has a fast attack and a beautiful (greenday) crack to it. It does have a little ring to it...its brass. You can minimize that by putting a powerstroke 3 on the batter and a hazy 300 on the res head. I Love this drum and use it use every gig. If you want warm and deep this is not your drum.. go maple. if you want fast and an amazing CRACK! this is it baby!!

I fully understand snare drum preference is a matter of personal choice, but I just don't get the hype here with this drum. If I had to sum up a good "all around" snare drum, it would be one that speaks well in a variety of applications, not just modern trends and here is where I believe this snare drum falls WAY short. First off, people complain about snare "ring" and head vibration resonance, often opting for a drier head selection. Of course this is a practical application but if you are a session drummer looking for a brass snare drum to cover not only funk and rock in the studio but also REGGAE and perhaps jazz, you'd most likely seek out a drum that sings in it's overtones and resonance. You will not find that in this drum. The patina finish does "dull" out certain frequencies and leaves this drum not only non-bright but almost dead and that is with a coated ambassador as a batter. That will work well if you are dropping a linear hip hop track but what about when you want to break out the one drop? Or think the Chad Sexton, "All Mixed Up" snare sound...you can't get it with this drum. It goes back to the old adage "it's better to have it and be able to REDUCE what is already there, than to not have it at all and not be able to access it". It isn't just the patina on this drum that affects it's life....the dreaded CONTROL RING seamed into the center of the shell is the biggest contributing factor. The Ludwig Black Beauty is a different animal and a drum that sounds great with these rings that are often falsely marketed as "projection" rings. Completely LAUGHABLE. These rings are added to the shell to add stability and integrity, PERIOD. If anything, they hinder the natural resonance of a shell and dry out the sound. If you wrapped duct tape around a drum shell, it would not vibrate the same....It is the same concept here. And the low profile lugs do nothing to counteract this sonic property. I've owned a coveted Pearl Ferrone snare drum that was a BB imitation and same problem...could not get that drum to work in multiple situations. Luddys are spun so maybe that is why they do sound so good. Not sure but when I went to demo-ed this drum (with the intent on buying it), I was EXTREMELY dissapointed. Is it an OK drum? Sure, but it's limited in it's application and does not stand out from the crowd IMO. In fact, next two metal 13" Yamaha drums, I would say in came in third. This is one man's opinion but there are comparison vids of this drum out there on the web...search and ye' shall find...and see/hear for yourself just how unspectacular this drum is compared to others in a line-up.

      Pork Pie Patina snare

      By JJddrum

      from Austin TX

      Comments about Pork Pie Brass Patina Snare Drum:

      One great snare!!!! I've owned more exotic ($$$) snares that did NOT have the sound this thing does. PP custom snares are a nice touch too! I put an Evans Dry on it, cranked it slightly, and wow!! I played a very expensive hand hammered snare and struggled to get what this PP had right out of the box,,,I did actually laugh when I played it.

      Beautiful Sound

      By kascadeiscool

      from New Hampshire

      Comments about Pork Pie Brass Patina Snare Drum:

      I just got this snare after looking around for a while, and let me tell you, it is fantastic. I have a maple DW kit and it fits in better than the the DW snare that came with it. The sound you can get from it is very versatile. I can be loud or soft, and has fit in with all the styles I have played with so far. I just finished a blues jam and it far outperformed my other snare. I know its a couple bucks more that some of the other pork pie snares, but it is definately worth it.

      The Greatest Sounding Snare Ever Made

      from Florida

      Comments about Pork Pie Brass Patina Snare Drum:

      As before with other gear, I was able to see this snare in a shop before a mass release, and also as before, this snare blew me away in every aspect:-Its construction is rocksteady and seemless-The finish is one-of-a-kind and beautifully unique-The Sound is simply the truest sounding result I've ever heard out of a snare, loud, open, sensitive, and ringy, even with the stock head-No de-tuning, which has been a problem with past PP snares.Just an amazing musical instrument, a steal at 300 bones, buy it if you see it, its applications are limitless.

      Pork Pie's finest hour

      By the_neon_drummer

      from Chicago, IL

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Pork Pie Brass Patina Snare Drum:

      I bought this snare probably around 6 months ago from a local guitar store, before Pork Pie started to mass produce them, and now my secrets out! The sound of this drum is absolutely incredible. The minute I got it home from the store, even with factory tuning it was amazing. It has a huge range of sounds, ranging from fat, deep, tones to a high pop. I'm also absolutely blown away at its sensitivity too; especially when I'm using brushes or playing it in a low volume setting. And the aesthetics! The drum has this jaw-dropping look to it also. The brass looks likes it?s been sitting in a dump for a hundred years yet still has the elegant beauty of a piece of art work. Pictures don't this snare justice! I would?ve easily paid DOUBLE this price to get a snare of this quality and sound! Bravo, Pork Pie. Bravo.

      Best snare for the money

      By Chance-NLVv2

      from Atlanta

      Comments about Pork Pie Brass Patina Snare Drum:

      This snare is incredible. It is loud and has a lot of punch to it, and it is so far the best sounding snare I've found for this price. Pork Pie is the way to go for great sounding snares that are comparable to much more expensive competitors.

      Great Brass Snare.

      By MDL397

      from Long Island, NY

      Comments about Pork Pie Brass Patina Snare Drum:

      This drum is awesome. Once you find a sweet pitch for the bottom head you can crank the top for a tight cracking ring or tune down and throw on a gel for that nice balanced marching bandish brass sound. Each one has different patina shades also. The one in the picture, the one in the store and the one that got shipped to me all look different. The only brass snares I like as much would be the Black Beauties and such...which are twice the price...this drum is worth every penny.

      Comments about Pork Pie Brass Patina Snare Drum:

      First of all, I'm not little Billy down the street that got his first Tama rockstar kit (though, these days its a DDrum). I'm a professional drummer with years of experience druming, tuning drums, and recording drums. I can tell you that this snare drum is amazing. Right out of the box, it sounded great. It only needed some fine tuning to achieve a well balanced medium high pitch. The patina finish dries out the midrange and low frequencies, but it still has a great open top end. It has a solid crack that you can feel in your body and it sits very well in a mix. I absolutely love this snare drum and recommend buying it. You will not be disappointed.

      Terrific Snare

      By Etm352

      from Tampa, FL

      Comments about Pork Pie Brass Patina Snare Drum:

      This is a very nice snare. I am a big fan of deep snares and this one does not disappoint. It has a very crisp attack and a great low end. It has a great snappy quality to it while retaining a very full, "meaty" sound. Not to mention is looks very sharp. Great snare. Highly recommended.

      I played this snare at a Guitar Center, and it's simply beautiful. Looks great, sounds great, heck, even feels great to play. This is THE snare drum for anybody, for any style of music. I love everything about this drum, and I hope to add it to my kit one day. If you're in the market, give this one some serious consideration. Pork Pie hit it out of the park.

      Comments about Pork Pie Brass Patina Snare Drum:

      I bought this at guitar center as I was looking to upgrade my snare and I am amazed at the tone and cut of this thing. Out of the box to the stand, ready to go.I played a gig the day after I bought it and I was pulling off rolls and fills that I would not normally attempt. Great reaction. I almost went with a Jordison snare but this is way more versatile. BUY IT NOW.

      Comments about Pork Pie Brass Patina Snare Drum:

      This snare is amazing. It sounds great in any tuning (as long as you know how to balance the tuning of your resonant head and batter to eliminate ring). It loud and cracks great even at low tunings. All hardware is great quality and the finish looks beautiful. I would highly recommend this snare for any drummer in any genre of music. Great Product. Great Price.

      Brass Patina snare rules

      By benthekilla

      from Iowa

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Pork Pie Brass Patina Snare Drum:

      Had this for about three months. With the heads tuned medium-tight to tight, it has a really sweet crack, balanced overtones and not too much ring. Rimshots are some of the loudest I've ever heard, and sidestick hits are fairly clean. Experimenting with lower tunings, it has more ring and doesn't quite offer the fat sound of a wood shell. It looks sweet, each patina finish is different which gives it that hand-crafted appeal. The price tag doesn't sting either, considering Pork Pie is an upper-level drum maker. The hoops/lugs/throwoff are great quality, the drum is sensitive and versatile yet loud and full of presence, just throw some decent heads on and get crackin'!
