Comments about Pork Pie Pig Iron Snare Drum:
This is a really cool drum and has a lot of tone. It came to me with the heads pretty slack so I had to tighten them up a bit. With the top head at 80 on the DrumDial and the bottom around 78 it was huge but also had huge sustain. The ring would last for ~ 5 seconds -- seriously! Especially with the snares loose. If I tightened them up then I could get it to choke the bottom head a bit and reduce the sustain. With a zero-ring on top, this low tuning just made for a fat monster of a snare sound.
I tightened it up and eventually landed at about 85 on the top head and around 80 on the bottom. This made for a nice all around pop but it still didn't lose the impact. Again loosening the snares allowed for more ring and tightening the snares controlled it a bit. I ended up with 1 moongel just above the pig's eyepatch (on the stock head).
So overall I found the "Pig Iron" sound to be less like a chrome-plated steel shell drum and actually closer to an aluminum shell like the Ludwig Supras or Acrolite. My USA Brass Pork Pie snare was a bit more dry sounding. I find some steel shell snares to be a bit harsh, but this Pig Iron is smooth. It's also well built, like my other Pork Pies. I may do some experimenting with heads as these are the stock "Remo UT" (not USA). I'm thinking Evans Dry HD or maybe Remo CS coated on top.
