What We Think

Pork Pie has long been one of our favorite snare drums in terms of price and sound. This one of a kind maple shell brings this 5x12 snare drum to a new level of crisp articulation. The maple core provides the bright attack that complements the 12" diameter, but it is accentuated with the Birdseye Maple interior veneer. Great as a side snare or primary snare, we found that the 12" diameter definitely speaks well in the higher tuning ranges, but the eight lug configuration will give you a nice even stretch on the drum heads if you prefer lower tunings too.

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.
