What We Think

Pork Pie may lack size in comparison to other manufacturers, but they make up for with daring designs that are both ear-grabbing and eye-catching. This drum set is finished with a natural satin. 

The toms have thin maple shells without reinforcing rings, steel hoops, chrome hourglass lugs, and gold badges that nicely compliment the finish. Each is fitted with coated Ambassador single-ply heads on the top and clear Ambassador heads on the bottom and has a suspension mounting system. They needed no muffling unless you prefer a shorter decay with an enhanced attack. This set previously had internal mics which have been removed. During the process, three of these drums were outfitted with a second vent hole and the 16" floor tom has two extra drill holes from the XLR jack. See photos.

Tuned low, this drum sounds much larger than it is. It can get a little boomy in the low-end with no port, so you may want to port the front head when you receive it. The bearing edges are as smooth as they can possibly be and are blessed with a 45° cut with a small sharp counter-cut to focus the drum and raise the level of sensitivity.

For drummers, studios, and/or producers looking to add a new sound to their arsenal, any Pork Pie drum would be well worth a look.

About Manufacturer

In 1987, Bill Detamore started making drums as a hobby. He sold one, made two more, and so on. This evolved into some of the finest handmade drums available today. To take snare drums one step further, he introduced solid (one piece), exotic wood stave and plate brass designs. Pork Pie has also introduced their Little Squealer and Hip Pig series of drums to round out the line.

Over the years, Pork Pie has become the place where a drummer can hot rod an existing kit with new bearing edges, refinishing, or design the kit of their dreams. Bill's signature is on the inside of every Pork Pie USA drum. This is his guarantee of quality. Pork Pie's goal is your total satisfaction.
