Overall, I gave it a bomb shell rating of 10 because you expect the heads to suck because they're stock heads and you can always replace them if you like. But I've been using this snare as it came, all I did was tune it to my liking and that was it. I've been playin it ever since.
I'm happy to say i own this snare and use it as my primary snare at my church or whatever church we fellowship at! I've gotten nothing but compliments.
The quality of the snare is very well for it to be for the price. I must say I'm well pleased. It's my favorite and the first snare that I bought myself other then my pearl m1330 piccolo
For the price your getting a lot more then your paying for usually you expect things to be not so great when your payin so little for them and the ones your paying so much for to be perfect. This is isn't the case with this pork pie little squealer snare drum!

Purchased this as a practice snare and it looks great. But replaced the junk heads that came with the snare with Evans Genera coated and was completely disappointed. I couldn't get the reso side to ring or buzz the snare. Ended up taking the head off and when I placed the drum on a flat surface, there is 1/16"+ gap on both sides of the bearing edges where the snare wires attach. This makes the drum almost completely worthless as you cannot get a good tuning without warping your hoops. Hopefully for Pork Pie's sake this drum inadvertently never went through QA otherwise their business is doomed. Basically I bought a box of junk.

Little Squealer

By Thomas Collins

from CA

Comments about Pork Pie Little Squealer Snare Drum:

Overall, I'd say buy this snare drum if you don't have money to blow. It sounds great, looks great, it even smells pretty good. Anyway, if you are a drummer on a budget looking for a good brass snare, this might just be the one.
It's a snare drum, so the features are there, good throw off, nice wires, good lugs, good starting head too.
It's not the best snare drum out there, but it certainly is good at this price. People complain that it is ringy, and yes, it is, but it is a brass snare so what did you expect? The tone is great. It sounds almost exactly like the snare drum in Handlebars by Flobots.
Great value, it is still a great price.

Great gig-worthy drum

By PeterK

from Simi Valley, CA

See all my reviews

Comments about Pork Pie Little Squealer Snare Drum:

Great build quality, looks great, sounds great.
Got my Little Squealer today. Tuned up the stock Taiwan heads with batter at 87 and reso at 78 on the Drumdial. Sounds great even with the stock heads. I'll keep them until the batter wears out. I would feel comfortable bringing it to any performance. I have quite a few other top of the line snare drums that often sit on the shelf but I will use this for my band practice kit.
Tuning rods have both metal and nylon washers. Throwoff is beefier than what you would expect to find on a Taiwan drum and gives me no cause for concern or gig worthiness.
It's the best $$ I ever spent!

99 $. WTF

By Uncle Fuzz-fVls2

from Mid-West

Comments about Pork Pie Little Squealer Snare Drum:

I picked this up for 99$ (and so can you) as a side snare/extra at the gig snare and now I sit awake at night wondering if I should use it as my primary snare. I use a high end 7 ply maple snare for the most part but I've always loved metal snares and this is a good one. It has the sensitivity you would expect from a good metal snare. Strong highs and mids. But it's also void of a lot of the harsh overtones present in a lot of steel snares (powder coating?). I would recommend a head change and moon gel to taste. Build quality is simple but nice. Tuning range is good. I've seen two bad reviews on this snare that left me confused. One had snare wires break, which I've never seen happen under regular circumstance on any snare, and the other didn't like the sound. They didn't really say what about the sound they didn't like but hey, sound is subjective. My feeling is with some serviceable heads and the ability to tune a drum you'll have no complaints. Reminds me of an acrolite on steroids. 99 dollars. You can't go wrong here.

This Thing Rocks

By Brian Reese

from Washington State

Comments about Pork Pie Little Squealer Snare Drum:

What a great Snare. I bought it thinking I would have a great backup, but it is my primary snare. iT TUNED PERFECT out of the box, but i did replace the top head with a Aquarian texture coated head, great sound, great value, and a home run all the way.
Love the black Powdercoated finish, and the heft of this drum. The strainer and throw off are smooth, and the nylon washers making tuning a pleasure
well made
It was the best buy i have made for my drums

      Comments about Pork Pie Little Squealer Snare Drum:

      Was looking for that FAT steel sound without excessive ringing overtones and without getting butchered at the boxoffice so to speak. I know I can spend $$$ to get what I need, but...
      the setup,
      I like both Evans Genera HD Dry Coated or Remo powerstroke 3 batter side and Evans Hazy 300 Snare Side. I use Puresound snare wires and interchange all the different windings, syles, and metals to taste
      Having said that, I bought a 14 x 6.5 DW Collector's Series Black Nickel over Brass. Not steel but was striking out on affordable steel snares that didnt ring like a bell. Like the sound but maybe a little TOO much like my DW maple it was being partnered with.
      Then... I got this hundred buck Pork Pie. Nothing to loose right? WOW! Perfect sound (for me) at all tunings from waterbed loose to nickle bouncing tight. Steel snare sound without the (excessive) ringing overtones! (you know what I mean, just the ones that make it a steel snare) I did however change the snare wires right off but thats just knowing IMHO they will be better than whatever is on it stock so...
      Best pound for pound value in the store. Great looking too! (hate the name though...)

      SWEET LIL PIG

      By lucas donley

      from Big Cali Baby

      Comments about Pork Pie Little Squealer Snare Drum:

      Overall i gave it a 9, just because the stock heads suck, but most all stock heads do, but other than that im super stoked to have this as my new primary snare!!!!
      Just got this snare in the mail, very pleased on the "look" real clean, sturdy construction, and a great deal! i bought this on 4th of july weekend when it was on sale for i took the shot and bought it.
      seems to be well manufactured, on had it for about and hour or so, so i cant tell you a year from now how it will be but i can say my mail man dropped it over the fence and you would never have known! its like 2x the weight of my maple snare and feels like you can back the heck out of it!

      Comments about Pork Pie Little Squealer Snare Drum:

      This drum is well made, looks great, and sounds fantastic after a few minutes of tuning. The drumheads that come on the drum are fine. They are Remo ambassadors, with the Pork Pie logo. Just tune the resonant head tight, and the batter medium tight, and the drum comes to life. It is more controlled, and dry than other metal snares that I have played. I have been using it on my gigs recently, and I have had many compliments from band members, and soundmen alike. I have an arsenal of snare drums, and this one is currently my workhorse, regardless of price.

          Saw this on MF for a great price and couldn't pass it up. I figured what the heck. When it arrived I was actually quite impressed. Weight is substantial. Quality seemed good for the price. I changed out the batter head, and while doing so noticed the hoops are heavy and seem of good quality. I put a renaissance Ambassador on the top and cranked it up. Great sensitivity, and minimal ring. It's amazingly sensitive. Tone is nice, crisp. The through is decent and works well enough. The matte finish is good quality. Overall this is an amazing deal for the price.

          Sounds great but slightly missed the mark on quality

          By Matthew Orlando

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Pork Pie Little Squealer Snare Drum:

          Despite the mechanical setbacks, I really love this drum. The sound is exactly what I was after, it looks great, and it was an amazingly stupid deal at the time. I'll leave the description of the sound to other reviewers, as that's what ultimately sold me on the purchase.
          Exactly what you'd expect from a snare drum, no more, no less.
          Everything about the build is great. The parts are all sturdy and clean. The finish is great. However, I had to return the first one I got because four of the tension rods and/or lugs had messed up threads. It was impossible to get them finger tight, and then I really had to force them once I switched over to the key. I don't know if the lugs were tapped wrong and stripping the tension rods or if the problem started with badly threaded rods.

          The replacement I got was in much better shape, but there were still one or two rods that feel stiff going in. It's not bad enough to send back a second time though, and I managed to get a good tuning on my first try. Still can't really give it full marks though.
          I got it for stupid deal of the day, so yeah
