Craviotto 5x14 birdseye maple Dynasonic snare drum
This is a great Craviotto snare from my collection. This is a 5x14 Craviotto solid steam bent BIRDSEYE MAPLE shell that was used to create a wood Dynasonic snare drum. The Rogers wood dynas are drums that I love, and having one made with one of Johnny's shells is incredible. Birdseye maple is exceedingly rare, which is an extra "plus" for this unique piece. All correct Rogers Dyna hardware. Top rim is a later rim since I didnt have an extra Rogers rim on hand. Very cool and rare piece. And, it sounds great.
Johnny's methods for steam bending were fine tuned over decades. No short cuts here. This sort of craftsmanship takes years to perfect, and his techniques and processes have never been equalled. The end result is a product that truly is the finest available in the world today. His team of master craftsmen were personally trained by him and they are carrying on the legacy. They continue to build drums "Johnny's way".
