Pork Pie Percussion

Pork Pie Percussion

Pork Pie Percussion is a drum company started in 1987 by Bill Detamore. Pork Pie's motto is "Made by an American."


In 1987, Bill Detamore started making drums as a hobby. This hobby quickly evolved into a full service drum company. Each drum is signed by Bill Dere with the date it was made. Pork Pie drums are made by hand in Canoga Park California. At this time, 2006, Pork Pie employs 9 people so it is still a fairly small company. Bill Detamore still is a hands on owner. He still cuts every bearing edge and does all of the paint jobs on the drums.

Recently, Pork Pie has introduced the Little Squealer line, the Piglite acrylic line and the Big Black brass snare drums. The Big Black drum as well as the Little Squealers are made in Taiwan. Piglite drums are made in California. The Little Squealer line has grown from one snare drum to a 4 piece drumset and 4 assorted snare drums. The Little Squealer line has been a great success for the company.

In addition to drum manufacturing, Pork Pie also offers a complete line of services that include drum restoration, customizing, and refinishing. Bill Detamore has done customizing for many big bands from Van Halen to Yes and Fleetwood Mac to Marilyn Manson, Blink 182 and Guns N' Roses.

Drumset lineup

Pork Pie offers three types of drumsets. The Little Squealer line is a mid line drum that is made in Taiwan. The Piglite line are acrylic shelled drums made in California. Everything else is hand-crafted and made-to-order. The quality has always been very high.
