My New Little Workhorse!

By James C.

from Phila, PA

Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

I just picked up one of these little guys thinking it would be a great auxilliary snare. Well let me tell you, it will now be replacing both my Ahead 6 x 14 brass AND my Ludwig Supra as my main snare. In fact, I have played many different snares over my 15 years of playing, and this ranks near the top. It has so much versatility for such a small drum. With a few turns of the tuning key, it goes from a 311-type pop to an ear-splitting Godsmack crack. The black laquer goes well with many different finishes, so matching it with your drum kit shouldnt be a problem. The throw off is rock solid and responds very well to small turns. As far as size, the 13 inch diameter is so much more comfortable to play than a 14, since you can keep your legs closer together. And the 3 inch depth gives you better rebound, which naturally means intricate patterns are easier to pull off. I took it to a recent gig and actually had several people asking how I got such a loud sound from it...unmiked! It sounds great with the stock heads- no need to change them until they are worn out. Bottom line- buy this drum...you won't be diappointed.

Awesome!

Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

This is a great sounding snare drum. If you're looking for something with great undertone, cut, and crispness, then you have found what you are looking for. I would definitely tell anyone to pick one of these up because of their great sound and price.

Love This Piccolo!

By Derek-T81.V

from Indiana

Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

Just got this piccolo yesterday and took it to practice with me. I absolutely love this snare. The sound is bright and punchy and cuts through everything like a hot butter knife! Have yet to use it at a show but I think that if this thing sounds this good at practice, a live show is going to sound awesome!

Great high pitched, cutting sound.

By Sam Burton

from Norwich UK

Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

This piccolo made a perfect addition to my 5-piece Pearl ELX kit. A little overtight, it delivers a brilliant pop whilst still retaining the wonderful defined 'buzz' that you'd expect from a good snare. Makes a good secondary or primary snare, and a very good buy.

Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

This is the best snare drum I'v ever heard. It sounds awesome even with my small gresch kit. When I first bought it I thought it was going to be to loud, but it blends nice with everything. Also sounds awesome on recordings

Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

This snare is perfect! At first it has a little too much overtone, but with a Remo control rong it sounds perfect!

Excellent snare

By IvanHelsing

from France

Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

I've been using an earlier version of this snare for 14 years as my primary snare and it still has a powerful cutting sound. Fabulous snare drum in any playing condition, reliable and very solid.

great affordable snare drum

Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

I was currently looking for a louder, brighter snare drum. I wanted something that sounded like a gunshot and this snare does it for me. I did change the heads on it and replaced them with a Remo hazy on snare side and a Remo emperorX on the batter side.

AWESOME!!!!!

By rockondude

from Powder Springs, GA

Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

This snare is the coolest. I just bought it around an hour ago. I took it home and tuned the batter head to about 5 and the resonant to about 7. If you have an Evans Torque key I tightened the snares a lot and put one of those Moongel muffler things on the batter head. It sounded awesome. I didn't want to stop playing it. Don't let the price fool you. You will love this thing.

is it really a piccolo

By Drumur

from Philadelphia

Comments about Pearl Piccolo 13" x 3" Steel Snare Drum:

This snare is surprising...it is very versatile depending on the tuning. On recordings, it doesn't sound like a piccolo; it sounds like a primary snare. It doesn't need muffling. (though you can use a ring) Sounds best with bottom head tight.(as with all snares) This thing is fat, it has crack, and it is loud. Buy it!
