first off, I play brutal technical death metal, so I have been eagerly searching for a snare that has a great LOUD pop with tons of bounce, and some warmer undertones; after trying out all the snares in GC to see which one sounded good for my genre, I was oddly drawn to this snare, mostly because you could hear it from a mile away, and it had a firecracker sound to it; just what I was looking for, now I'm going to go pick one up and put some nice heads on it.

I have been playing in small clubs, bars, with rock bands for over 20 years. I currently play 90's rock and I have been using a Pork Pie Big Black that sounds perfect every time. Unfortunately it is a little loud and picked up in vocal mics in smaller clubs. I trusted Pork Pie and I purchased this snare to have a good sound at a lower volume. Definitely quieter and has a good sound when tuned properly but drops out of tune after a few songs. I find myself trying to frantically retune between songs. I have tried plastic lug locks which helped but didn't solve the problem (they spin with the lugs). I like the drum enough to keep trying but worrying it was a wasted purchase.

Comments about Pork Pie Little Squealer Maple Snare Drum:

The squealer lives up to its name. The quality is not American (made in Taiwan), but the sound is great! The snares can be adjusted to the type of time you want (vintage, tight, etc.). The head is decent, making the snare playable straight out the box! I recommend this 12" snare for any player looking for a tight loud sound to add to their set!

      Comments about Pork Pie Little Squealer Maple Snare Drum:

      Impressive little snare. The finish is not perfect, but good enough, and for this price you cannot ask for more. Cranked up high, its very loud and has a higher fundamental tone than a 14" snare, so is great for punk or metal, as it really does cut thru everything else. Its quite a value.

          This drum is made very well. It looks awesome and sounds good as well. If you are looking for a "made by an American" Pork Pie drum, this is not it. The little squealer is made in Taiwan. That being said, it is still a great drum. It sound awesome and is a good snare for the price. Personally I would choose a different Pork Pie snare.

            Comments about Pork Pie Little Squealer Maple Snare Drum:

            I've had this for over 10 years. This little guy is very versatile, sturdy, and has a blasting sound. I play mostly rock with clear heads. Not sure how it would sound on softer music, but it proyects really well for Rock. I always get compliments after my shows about the snare sound. May yield some overtones if not tuned properly, but that's something that can be arranged.

                I bought this a few years ago. It is a very powerful little drum. I bought the 12" for a change, and it sounds absolutely amazing. Beats all my other snare drums.

                  Didn't have funds to swap heads but even out of the box this snare sounded quite good for my not-so-high standards. It's a bit on the small side, but I think I'm slowly getting accustomed to it.

                    You'll need damping gels because there is some over tone. But other than that it's one of the best Snares iv'e ever used.

                    I played this bad girl and I had to convince myself that paying my bills was more important than buying this gal. You can dig into this girl and she'll let you get as hard as you want without choking-up. Also has a beautiful overtone that is complimentry and alows the drum to be heard. The hardware, finish and everything are beautiful. Shes the girl wearing the slinky black dress that will give you the night of your life.
