This snare has a lot of attitude! At first..I was having trouble finding the tuning I liked. I'll say that it takes getting used to and finding the sound that you like. However, once you get to know this drum.. watch out cuz' it will blow you away! I found out that it has a sensitive side too.. it is very sweet and can pick up soft rolls and ghost strokes. Overall, this drum is loud and has a big bang-crack-kaboom. Its deep enough to have lower tunings if you would like, and it sounds great with a huge sound. The overtones of the acrylic keep the drum very aggressive and if you like a little ring..you got it. Although, I found out if you put a G1 coated on it (or a thinner single ply head) with a tad bit of moon gel, you can still get that nice, open sound without some of the ring. Overall, this drum is great and if you are thinking about getting it.. you won't be dissapionted. Get to know the drum and I promise you it will have something good to offer!

The snare is damn cool looking. As far acrylic snares go, this one is very limited in its tonal qualities. I own three acrylic snares and all are either piccolos or vented and that's really the only way an acrylic ever sounds good. It's definitely got some nice pop to it. Most will find it too hollow sounding, even for an acrylic. Still, despite it's flaws, the drum is a Pork Pie and it's a nicely made one at that. For $300 bucks there are many more versatile snares out there, though this one does have a distinctive pop. It will mostly be a niche item for those who love that dark crisp sound of acrylic.

Drum Candy

By E0RLFdBQ1

This thing is Loud, the Sound jumps right out of your set and bounces around the room nearly knocking out who ever stands too close. I would recommend testing the sound out for yourself, it is definetly unique, which is why I love it. The sound is very tight, pretty much versital. Its a good upgrade for some one buying their second or third snare. Not to mention it looks awesome.

Best snare under $300 by far

By Andy Leffler

from Nashville, TN

I went and saw about 25 snares on display, some were over $1000.00, a few were around $150.00. I went down the line tapping on each one, listening. After going down the line I came back to this one because I could not believe what I was hearing. It had a coated G1 on it and was tuned within it's normal range, not too tight etc. I have never heard a snare with as much crack and loudness in my life. It is also very sensitive as long as you use a coated G1. I bought one and I love it. All my friends that I jam with commented on it and it sounds incredible in the studio as well. Since they are discontinued they will probably go up in value. I'm sure this particular acrylic snare will become somewhat of a classic. Get one now.

Excellent

This snare kicks wood butt! Usually I stuck with wooden maple snares but when I tried this snare out it blew me away with its great pop. When doing a rim clicks it hurts your ears. No need to even mike this one. If the overtones are too much try a muffler ring they work wonders.

SOLID

THis snare has a good pop to it, and the hardware is definately solid.but for me, this snare is hard to tune to a sound that would compliment reggae or ska. It can be done, but it would take some time.Its definately worth the money

One great snare, period.

By DrumKing

I don't personally use this snare in my band, but my friend uses this snare in his band (The Encore), I've played his snare before nd I've listened to him play it and it is one great snare. Its very powerful, it cuts right through the music. I recommend this snare to anybody, Pork Pie makes amazing drums, especially snare drums. I also use pork pie, I have the Little Squealer(also an amazing snare), but anyway, the pork pie piglite acrylic snare drum sounds great live and even BETTER recorded. you will not be disappointed.

Great sounding snare

By Ryan-Jhi.o

from Wyomissing, PA

I have only good things to say about this snare, looks alone it's probably the best looking one I've ever seen, you have to see it in person to really appreciate it. But most importantly, the sound is great, it's extremely loud but that's what I was looking for. I put new Evans heads on it but the Remos that come with it are decent, as in they don't need to immediately replaced, but I'm just an Evans fanboy.

Rings.

I bought this snare thinkin it would be awesome because it was made by pork pie, but I was wrong. The acrylic don't absorb any of the Vibrations at all leaving you with a super annoying loud ring.

Incredible !!!!!!!!!!!!!

By Ben-3DjAm

from Chickamauga, Ga

This Pork Pie 7x13 Amber Acrylic snare is just what I've been looking for. Tune the head moderately tight and the hollow sound is prefect, and the rimshot is great. Canking the head up even tighter gives it the best piccolo sound ever, and as for the rimshot... you had better wear earplugs! I plan on buying a seconed Piglite to have both sounds in the studio without retuning. It's the only snare I'll ever use!

SWEET!

By fishsticks2

I am a big fan of travis barkers acrylic kits and I have always liked the look of this one. So, as I was looking for a snare to go with my new DW kit, I needed something to fit the great looks and sound and and I am more than pleased with the sound quality of this snare. I highly recommend it to anyone no matter what type of music you play.
