Got this on EBAY. Looks like a big chunk of keystone chocolate, but plays great and is quieter than other pads I've tried.

Just bought this on EBAY for $314. The Carl Palmer 'Venus' piccolo snare signed by Palmer. Ain't it gorgeous? Can't wait to try it. :)

^ That was a great vid.CP derives such pleasure from drumming.

Did you see the camera vibrating? Either from the sound waves through the floor or coming right at the camera.

Yes. I love watching him. He's become my 'new' drumming hero. The camera shake was definitely real. A seismic shift. :drumz:

Finally got my piccolo snare after playing 'delivery tag' with Fed-Ex for a week. It's so beautiful and heavy and sounds great, but I will re-tune it. It also has locknuts for the tension rods. Carl signed it on the inside. :notworthy:

Excellent.Signed by the man and all.

I've looked at a few Piccolo's on sale sites and toyed with the idea of buying one.What made you buy one and what will guide you through the tuning process?

I just like their sound and the fact this one is so beautiful. I tuned it with the normal cross pattern starting with finger tight on each lug. I had to re-adjust the strainer too as it was 'bottomed out' and the snares still had some rattle. The drum's got some pop now. :drumz:

Visiting my friend the other day I asked him if he still had a snare drum some guy found in a dumpster a few years ago. He pulls it out and it's all dirty and dusty. The strainer was broken in two. I asked him if he wouldn't mind if I took it to clean it up and I sent for the a new Gibraltar strainer ($21). It's a 5x14 'Pacific' 3 ply maple painted a nice satin black. The head has been played like you wouldn't believe and I'm going to keep that on there along with the old snare head. I like broken in heads. It oughta sound good.

I'd be buying snares and kits every other day of the week if I could afford it and if I had somewhere to keep them.And as re:broken in heads,I leave them on as long as I can.

I'm not sure what you mean by "head" as you also mentioned the snare head.Did you mean the hoop?
