What We Think

The Pork Pie Hip Pig line started out as a way to get the Pork Pie quality at an affordable price. After countless prototypes, these Taiwanese drums received the seal of approval from Bill Detamore and have become a thriving entity that now offers snare drums a line of full drum sets.

Pork Pie has long been one of our favorite snare drums in terms of price and sound. The Hip Pig line brings affordability to a new level without sacrificing the Pork Pie sound. The 1mm iron shell brings this 6.5x14 snare drum to a new level of pronunciation. Great as a side snare or primary snare, we found that the 14" diameter definitely speaks well in the mid-higher tuning ranges, but the eight lug configuration will give you a nice feel on the drum heads if you prefer lower tunings too. 

If you're on a budget or just searching for a quality sounding snare drum, the Pork Pie Hip Pig should be on your list.

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.
