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.

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

from Yorktown, VA

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.

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

By Reaganomics

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.

By Whitz

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.

More than I expected!

By Mr.Ghost

from Tupelo,ms

I bought the pork pie amber 7x13 & recieved it on 7/12 It is far more than I expected where a 13" snare is concerned or for that matter, even a 14". It has an excellent cutting sound. Very cracking attack sound. The stock head is great & I see no need for a remo anytime soon. The tube lugs & acrylic shell are a beauty & the price is just hard to pass up.I`ve been playing a Pearl "free floater" 14" metal snare for years but, this one`s become no# 1 on my kit.

What a sound!

By Nick R

from Florida

I had always thought that acrylic snares were just inferior (tonally) to their wooden bretheren - I was totally wrong. I went a tried this baby out and I love it sooo much. Anyone who complains about an annoying ring simply did not spend enough time working with the snare. It can give anywhere from a loud pop with a lot of ring to a great crack with no ring at all. this snare is highly versatile and great snare for the money.

Looks great--and sounds even better than it looks

By TCB

from NYC

See all my reviews

I was skeptical about the sound that might come from an acrylic snare, having tried those of several other brands, most of which were much more expensive. In this case, though, I was immediately taken by the pop, crack, and depth that I heard from this the first time I tried one. Unlike some acrylic snares that sounded too dull and hollow, this one is full of life. It has a great sound and really cuts through the rest of the band, yet is sensitive enough for quieter and more intricate playing when needed. Although I've been using it as a secondary snare, it certainly is versatile enough to be your only snare. And, as I've said, it really looks great.

In Love!

By parno006

This snare is the best snare I have played on! I use to use the squealer but my buddy sold it so I stuck with the pork pie brand which was a great idea! Cracks when cranked high but still sounds great tuned lower, not to mention it looks sweet as hell and its made very well! Its a good bet going with this snare!

a great buy for any serious musician

By Grindxmaggot

I bought this snare a while ago, and I can honestly say that it is probably the best snare I've ever played, heard, or seen. Straight out of the box, it was in perfect tune, cranked up high, which sounded great for reggae, or ska, or alt music. And I sometimes tune it down a bit to play post-hardcore songs, and the drum completly gives you a distinct sound that everyone will love. It is a great recording snare, too. And its also the best looking snare Ive ever seen. put simply, this snare will never let you down, and if you are uneasy about acrylic snares, go down to your local music shop, try one of thease things out, and be amazed.

Pork pie beater

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I was at the music store thinking on buying a second snare and have a two snare set up. I saw this pork pie not only would it match my amber set it looked really cool.I went and found some sticks and it was love at first wack.I must say this snare is not for the soft sounding player. This snare commands respect, it shouts with a voice that is heard threw all the noise.I highly recomend this snare to anyone. You have to really crank up the lugs and think you will tear out the lugs. Its a bad boy.You will like it

Great snare!

By joe schmoe

This snare sounds great. My previous snare was a 5.5x14 Yamaha, and this thing blows it out of the water. It's loud, and you can tune it up to get pretty much any sound you want. I recommend this snare to everyone because you can play any style of music with it.

cool

By gbs

See all my reviews

I just got this snare yesterday. Right out of the box it sounded ok but when I cranked it up a little bit it sounded nothing short of amazing. You get a tight crack but at the same time, you get a nice fat warm undertone. Acrylic is really right in between steel and maple. It?s got a Steel attack with maple warmth. On top of that the snare looks absolutely amazing.

Great choice for a snare

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought this snare yesterday, after choosing over some DW snare. It's an incredible snare, great looking, loud, and has a geat pop/crack sound. There is a slight ring to it, but it sounds awesome when it's muffled also. This snare also stays in tune very well. I'd recommend this snare to anyone, playing any style.

I got my pork pie the same time i purchased my dw kit, and it is a excellant snare drum, very loud and very sensitive ghost notes can be heard well even when not mic'd,. the people who are complaining of the overtones/ringing, try some moon gel it work great.
