I have been looking for a nice snare for almost a year. I took my time, and I didn't let the budget affect me. This snare exceeded all of my requiernments, and best of all, it's affordable. I love everything about this snare. The sound, quality, value, look. If you want something different that is not a 14x6 snare, consider this snare. Very versitily and sounds awesome.
This snare is a beast. The 13" diameter makes it able to be tuned very nicely. I like it medium tight, and very dry sounding. The 7" depth gives it a.... well a deeper sound. The vents allow the snare to sound dryer by letting the air escape faster. It also makes ghost notes stick out and it increases overall volume. If you put the evans HD Dry or the G2 Coated, you can't go wrong with the sound. It sounds like Underoath's sound for the snare. Amazing.
The craftmanship is amazing. The snare sounds awesome, and unless I do something stupid with it, I doubt it will ever break. The hard rock maple exterior gives it a warm but aggressive sound.
This is the best part about the snare. It sounds like a snare at four times the price when tuned correctly. You get a lot of bang for your buck. Unlike other companies, this snare is not made in China.

everyones reviews said it was the best snare ever, but i cant figure it out like they did. i put a reverse dot evans head on it and ive been tuning this thing up and down for 3 months and cant figure it out. too high and its choked with no ghost notes, too low and its weak and airy with weird vibes. but the fact that i cant tune it doesnt make it a bad snare, everyone else loves it. im just not as impressed as they are.

      Comments about Pork Pie Little Squealer Snare Drum:

      I bought this snare because I was intrigued by the venting, the reasonable price and that I didn't have a snare this size. Also I had heard great things about Pork Pie snares. When the drum arrived I was impressed by the finish and the overall look of the snare. I put on a Evans head and some Puresound snares because that's just what I do out of habit. I tuned it somewhere in the middle range and WOW! The Lil Squealer really popped. When you tune it low you get a nice fat smack. I play a lot of backbeat rimshots and this drum was perfect for that application. I did notice that after a few weeks of playing I was having trouble with the tension rods loosening up. This is not the first time I've had this problem with my style of playing so I got some tension rods from TightScrew and that solved the problem. The Lil Squealer is a great first or second snare and the sound, quality and price makes this drum a really great deal.

          Received this on a trade ( I truly believe I got the better deal)it came with a trashed powerdot batter head after trying a few heads 1st Remo coated Emperor 2nd Remo clear pinstripe 3rd and final Remo coated Ambassador tuned up high but not too extreme,loosened bottom head a quarter- half turn and loosened snare wires as so not to choke the drum.......and Wowsers.....what a joy,nice bark,snappy rimshots,without muffling the head this snare sounds wicked......use it as a secondary snare or your primary.....this snare will answer all your hopes & dreams,seriously I highly recommend this drum.

              I purchased the snare for my church. I played on it for the first time last Sunday and liked what I heard. It has a great "pop" sound. I didn't change the snare head...I didn't see any reason to at this point.

              Comments about Pork Pie Little Squealer Snare Drum:

              Bought this drum based on the reviews. Out of character for me... but the enthusiasm is justified. Had it for a few weeks, tried different batter and snare heads, and the original heads. Conclusion: What do you like? The heads all work fine with different coloration and response. Puresound snares make tuning easy. I like the strainer. Took it apart to lube it to make it last. Nothing was loose. Put it back together with Loc-tight. I'm going for a Supraphonic sound and response. Almost there... I'll be installing an Ambassador head soon. The very center of the oft-mentioned heavier heads is a little choked for my taste (being very picky, here). I too, have had lots of snares. This is a drummer's snare drum. Lots of voices to choose from. Have fun!

                      I bought this about a little over a year ago because I was tired of my stock snare, one of the best buys for my set yet! I play hardcore/metalcore/metal music and this snare has such an explosive and loud sound. It fits perfectly with all types of my music as well!! Totally worth it!

                          Great drum, unique look and versatile sound. Best for medium to loud volume music. My issue is with the snare throw off... It loosens up from the inside causing the snares to looses tension very easily. It became very annoying during gigs. Eventually I removed the throw off from the drum and discovered under the rubber gasket two brass screws. The lower one was about three turns loose allowing extra play in the throw off. I tightened it up and the issue was solved! I would recommend keeping this in mind to other drummers experiencing snare loosening issues. If the problem comes back I will be installing a lock or star washer to see if that solves the issue permanently.

                          I've had numerous snares for live and recording purposes and this one seems to be my go to drum. The maple shell and all the vents combine to give the drum a cutting crack sound that rivals high end models. The snare throw off went out on me pretty quickly, so I put on a DW magnetic one, done deal. I use an Aquarian high energy head for heavy music, and an ambassador coated for rock/pop with an evans hazy 300 on the underside and this drum works at any volume. For the money it's a smokin' deal on a good snare.
