I have been a drummer for the last 35+ years starting in grade school, being head drummer in the high school marching band, concert band, jazz band, and playing in various dance, jazz, rock and roll and other bands through the years. I have owned Ludwig, Slingerland, Rogers, Tama, Yahama and other drumsets. I bought this little drum for the Yamaha set I am playing now just to fill out the set, and because it was the least expensive snare I could find. Having read all the reviews, I was skeptical. Under $30.00, what could it be? GREAT is what it is. Sure it doesn't have a muffler; but so what..People say the heads aren't good-wrong-they are quite nice single ply heads, and the top head is even coated..The snare throw-off isn't top drawer-so what? It holds the snares against the bottom head- it does it's job nicely...The rims seem to be cast. I haven't bent them yet..10 lugs...not many drums have so many..The shell seems to be very nice...I haven't stripped any lugs out yet, but I haven't replaced the heads. In my opinion, you don't need to..And I haven't added any muffling to the snare either...It doesn't need any...In my opinion, the bad reviews on this item are from people who have never owned a drum; don't know how to tune one; and are simply complainers; they can't be satisfied. Listen to me...if you need a very nice little snare, know how to tune a drum, and don't have to own a famous brand name to brag to your friends about..BUY THIS PULSE PICCOLO SNARE...if you're like me, you'll be ordering another one just to have a back-up. Heck, you can hardly buy two brand name heads for this price.

At this price, I snatched up this snare to use alongside the Ludwig that came with my set. Now, when I travel I bring only this one. It sounds great, but it will cost you more than the price tag. The included heads are cheap, so I replaced them quickly, putting an Evans Power Center Reverse Dot batter (Product #443803) on the top. In doing so, a couple of tension rods snapped halfway out of the lugs, so back to the music store for new lugs and tension rods. Now my snare sounds great. I recently took it to a church camp we did music for. We couldn't mike much of the set, but didn't need to mike the snare at all. It was so loud it cut through everyone else onstage with no problems. It's rimshot will shatter your head. The throwoff is nice, and can handle high snare tension. If you want to take the extra time and effort to fix it up, it's a great snare.

Pulse Snare

By MD-yEzSN

from ATX

It's what I expected, a cheap snare. It is a good value though and sounds pretty nice. The throw-off on mine is horrible and likes to stick, but after replacing that and putting new heads on it should sound great.

Buy this snare!!!!!!!!!!

By bogan boy87

from Tupelo, MS

When I first purchased my pulse piccolo, I was kinda skeptical, but of course, I took it out of the box and tuned away and it sounds amazing!! Of course, a month later, I changed the head, and still sounds amazing!! I recommend this to beginners and pros alike! I love this thing!!!

my 2 cents

By jackm04

from Maine

I bought this a couple years ago but with a brass body. It snaps and cracks through a live mix nicely. Haven't recorded with it but I bet it would be nice in the right spot. For the money you can't beat this drum...oh, yes you can!I'd recommend it as a great add on and am buying one for my girlfriends 11 year old daughter as she has just started playing "snare drum" in school.

Greatest deal ever!

By Dj ktack

from Greeneville, TN

When I saw this snare I thought, "hmmm, I bet this thing is terrible, but I really need a piccolo so I can jam out to some ska". So I decided to buy it. The first thing I noticed when I saw the thing here was the head, it looked terrible. I ordered the evans black resonant tom head because I like the tone you get out of tom heads on snares. First thing I did when it came was take it out of the 13 inch box for my 14 inch snare. Then, I immediately replaced the heads and cranked it up pretty high. It sounded godly... The next day, I decided to see how big d and the kids table would sound with my new piccolo. I hit the piccolo and it had completely stretched the head overnight. So I tuned it back up as high as it would go, and it's stayed pretty consistent. Then the throw-off bent and it took me forever to turn the snares on. So, after the break in process, this snare turned out pretty well, and all my drummer friends envy me. This can be one of the greatest piccolos out there if it came with a better head and better throw-offs. Besides that, get this snare. I do kack rimshots on the thing all the time (busted my finger open once) and the rim still hasn't bent a bit. BUY THIS SNARE, you can't find a good snare this cheap anywhere.

Cheap, but worth every penny

By Rusty Buckets

from Gulf Shores, AL

Yes, this thing is cheap. It does have a pretty nice sound though. It's sharp and loud and I love the way it sounds with the snares off. You may want to swap out the top head at least, but I'm playing mine with the origional until it pops. I recomend this snare a hundred times over for it's low price and above average sound.

Great snare for the cash

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Bought this snare a few weeks ago and I love it. Of course there are better snares out there but they all come with a price tag triple this one. For the price this is a great snare. A nice loud crack/pop and works perfect. This snare packs a punch that youll hear through even the loudest of hitters.

great snare for great price

By deathmetal

from oklahoma

I got this snare like 6 months ago and it still is amazing the hardware is fine not problems with it at all I put a remo weatherking on it and it sounds amazing with or without moongel. This snare will not disapoint you if you want just a nice crack and pop sound I use as a main now buy it now though before you spend $$$ on a pork pie.

Pulse Steel Piccolo Snare

By double bassed krosher!!

from Pierre, SD

This snare is amazing! The price is unbeatable, and you get the same sound as a professional crack snare! It does need a new head, as the one that comes with it will rub off on your sticks and leave marks on your cymbals and toms, but if you put a good head on it (I used an aquarian high-energy) and tune it up high, it will give you an amazingly loud crack, and it doesnt need muffling either!

Good buy

By DrummerJD587

I got this snare almost a year ago and i love it. If you put a good drumhead on it and tighten it up real good, it sounds amazing. it has a nice loud snap that i was looking for.

Pulse Steel Piccolo Snare

By ck

from ohio

I have played drums for almost 20 years, and I have gone through a lot of different snare drums. This is actually a rather good snare for the money. I have always liked piccolo's and this one sounds nice and clangy. Very well suited towards industrial or grindcore music. For other genres - this isn't the snare for you. Keep in mind that it is cheap, so it will not be as heavy duty as some more expensive snare drums. While the heads and throw off are not the best, I highly recommend this if you are on a budget.
