I received this snare last Christmas (2013) as a gift. I wanted to put it throught its paces first before posting a review. After a year, i will say this snare is really good. Craftmanship is ok. Put some new heads and upgrade the snare wires and this drum shines. I put an Evans Hazy 300 along with an HD Dry Batter head. I love this drum.

I ordered this snare as a cheap alternate snare and for some of the Rockabilly styles I play. It came broken with evidence that it had been dropped or smashed making the snare a sort of egg shape and breaking the batter head (which I planned on replacing anyway) and a broken throw-off. I contacted MF customer service immediately and was helped by a young lady named Emily she was very helpful and as always, no hassle on the return. Thanks MF for making the poor musician's life a possibility and reducing stress with excellent customer service.

        Great Value

        Comments about Sound Percussion Labs Piccolo Snare Drum:

        Overall excellent build quality. Much better than I expected. The stock heads can sound good if it is tuned correctly. I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a good loud snare that won't break the bank.

        Great little snare - Good starter/backup

        By 

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Sound Percussion Labs Piccolo Snare Drum:

        I purchased this snare strictly as a backup snare to see how much value I could get out of this investment. The statements on here are pretty true that the provided batter head sounds pretty bad. I just threw on a Remo coated ambasador and the thing really pops. With the right tuning and a new head this snare feels and sounds good enough for the occasional gig'ing drummer. I haven't played it long enough to know about longevity but it passed the first gig with flying colors. Lower rating goes to the quality because a new head is pretty much necessary to make this sound right.

        good

        Comments about Sound Percussion Labs Piccolo Snare Drum:

        its pretty good, but I think you should save up a little more to get a better snare, but this isnt bad at all. I dont recommend this but I do recommend you get a better snare if you want another one. Pearl VX, Pork Pie Snares, and other stuff like that is better.

        okay, but .........

        By 

        from rochester, ny

        Comments about Sound Percussion Labs Piccolo Snare Drum:

        Well, with a head change (hd batter and hazy reso) the drum doesn't sound too bad. Changed out the original snares for some puresound 20 strand blasters and improved a bit. (med-tight and moongel to kill the ring. WOuld tune tighter for more pop, but i'm not sure about the durability of these lugs/rods) The problem: the throw-off. Forget about using this for a tom-tom sound. I could never get the strainer adjusted to allow a clean switch from tom to snare. I'll keep it around for a side/effects snare, but the throw-off issue prevents it from being even close to a primary. Cheap drum cheap price. You may have a niche for it, or maybe not.

        Don't cheap out...

        Comments about Sound Percussion Labs Piccolo Snare Drum:

        At the price it's really tempting to buy however I found the bearing edges to be very poor and the hardware to be cheap. Acoustically it sound like crud even with good Evans heads installed but I didn't mind as I use this as a kick on my e-drums.Those saying it sounds good probably don't know much about drums and tuning...

        I got this black Piccolo snare with my sabian b8 thin crash and it rattled a lot at first, but i had to make a couple adjustments to it and after that it sounded great. Its exactly what i intended it to be. It goes perfect with the type of music i play. i would strongly recommend this to anybody that is a drummer. Its a good snare for an amazingly awesome price. BUY IT!!!!
