Snare Head For Pork Pie Little Squealer
Well, I have a few gigs coming up these next two weeks, and the most important one is mic’d . Anyways, I have this little 13×7 Pork Pie that has become my main snare. I love it. It will probably need a new head before these shows, so I am looking for some recommendations for a good head for it, before I wind up going with an Emperor X as that is my default choice it seems.. Lol I love a high snare drum that really crack, and one that is semi dry. Anyone have a clue what would give me that on this drum? Oh it currently has a coated ambassador on it.

A Modern Snare With Vintage Flair
Pork Pie Percussion has been doing things differently since 1987. The Pork Pie Little Squealer snares are no exception to Bill Detamore’s track record of unconventional, high-quality drums. All the Little Squealer snares feature 8-ply birch and mahogany hybrid shells for punchy attack balanced with warm, vintage tone. All the hardware, from the beavertail-design lugs to the heavy-duty throw off and butt plate, is done in a durable, attractive chrome finish. With strong 2.3mm steel hoops, 45-degree bearing edges for maximum resonance, and uncoated snares with heavy brass ends, the Little Squealer snare is fast becoming a favorite of Sweetwater drummers looking for some vintage vibe with modern construction.

Re: Snare Head For Pork Pie Little Squealer
An ambassador x or g+ would probably work well. It would probably be slightly louder and slightly drier than the ambassador that’s on there now. A g14 would be slightly louder and slightly drier than the ambassador x or g+. There’s always moon gel if it’s not dry enough for you. Depending on how good the sound guy is, he may let you play with it as is, or he might insist that you choke the snot out of the drum with excessive tape, moon gel, or o rings.Since these are coming pretty soon, I wouldn’t switch to a 2 ply head, as it may take time to get used to the feel.

Pork Pie Little Squealer
I’ve been just kinda casually looking at a new snare to purchase and I’m hearing good things about these snares, and they’re just about at my price range as well. Right now I have two metal snares. I have a 14×3.5 Yamaha Brass that I use as my main snare and I’m pretty happy with it. It’s very loud and cutting which is perfect for the music I play right now. And I have a generic Ludwig steel snare that I think is 14×6 that I never use. I don’t know where I got it from, but it’s a backup just in case snare.I was thinking about a Chad Smith but I figured I don’t need another metal snare, so I was looking at wood and came across these. I’m not decided, but if I get it, I’m not sure what size I should go for. What are the sonic differences between the two sizes? Also, I sit very low at the kit and I think that a 7″ tall snare might be too high for me. What do you think?
I should say that I am not really a big fan of the auxiliary snare thing. I’m also not a fan of tiny snare drums like the 10 X 5’s or the 12 X 5’s. I do own and love my Pearl 12 X 7. It’s a great, great drum, but I personally would never go shallower than a 7″ depth on a 12″ drum.If your looking for an auxiliary snare, than don’t pay any attention to me or my preferrances. I think that a 13 X 7 drum is a great size that could be very versitile and could easily be adapted for several types of music.

The Best Sounding Squeal Youll Hear
Obviously, not all snare drums are created equal. The Pork Pie Little Squealer snare drum benefits from a more complex manufacturing process using very high-grade materials. The shells are 8-ply hard rock maple, brass snare wires, cast hourglass lugs, heavy duty hoops and Remo heads from the factory.
The attention to detail is what gives Pork Pies snares their distinctive, hearty sound. With crackling crisp notes and mellow, rich undertones. The 5X12 is the flagship size. The vented snares also come in 5X14 and 7X13 models.

Pork Pie Little Squealer Snare Drum
Does anyone have any experience with this snare drum? It is on sale for $99.99 for today only and I was wondering if I should go for it? The snare I have now is the catalina ash snare 14 x 5. The little squealer is 14 x 6. I have been looking to upgrade my snare, but I figured I would wait a little bit down the line. Is this a great deal? Any advice is appreciated as always! Thanks!

X 7 Bullet Hole Vent Snare Drum
Clown puke are the words that Pork Pie itself uses to describe the hardware on this visually ballistic 14 x 7 snare with multiple vents . And by multiple, we dont mean two or three extra holes my count came up with 72 holes drilled in an arrowhead-type pattern through the 8-ply maple shell. You want ventilation for your snare drum? You got it.
Surrounding the edges of these holes is a silver glass glitter finish. Hues like bubble gum pink and bright blue abound on the powder-coated hardware, giving this big snare drum a carnival atmosphere. If you want something with visual impact behind the subtle flair of the Piglite, heres your drum. Even the most demanding extroverts should find this snare meets their criteria for arresting presentations.
Due to the much faster and more complete rush of air outside all those vents, the response of the drum is very dry. While the size can allow the Bullet Hole drum to achieve big volumes, the drum is also noticeably crisp and sensitive at very soft volumes. Many snare drums seem to mush up when played at pp or ppp, but this drum remains precise at the small end of the volume scale surprising for a drum that comes off like such a big brute.

Pork Pie Snare Drums Tested
Pork Pie Drums has been around since founder Bill Detamore started making drums as a hobby in 1987, but despite nearly two decades of building a devoted fan base in the drumming community, the company still retains somewhat of an underground feel. A smaller-scale manufacturer, what Pork Pie may lack in sheer size, it makes up for with daring designs that are both ear-grabbing and eye-catching. For its snares, drum kits, and hardware, the philosophy appears to be staying the original course: center the products around high-quality, often handmade materials, and keep the passion for drums alive. Lets check out a few of the companys unique snare drum offerings.
