I don't think its 10" deep bro ... I think its 6.5" deep and 10" wide. I could be wrong though .... it wouldn't be the first ... or second time.

Just ordered a Pork Pie Lil' Squealer (tried one out at guitar center, and decided that free shipping is better than having to pay sales tax any day). I can't wait!

Of course, I can now add the new Snare I got with the purchase of my Superstar Fusion kit (barely used) a 5.5x14 I believe, with yellow fading to dark red. Picture soon if people require, but it really not much compared to alot of the crazy stuff you all have.

I use the Mike Portnoy maple 14x5.5 signature snare. I went from a 14x6.5 Pearl Brass Free-Floating snare to the Tama MP snare. I love the sound of this snare. It also has the three way throw-off (tight, loose, off) which enables me to switch sounds easily between and even in the middle of songs...they're like presets. Very nice sounding snare with a nice rock CRACK to it. You can hear the snare in action on some of Dream Theater's newest albums or you can go listen to my bands new song, "Broken Record" at www.myspace.com/chillsetmusic
