Craviotto Solid Shell Baritone Snare Drum

The Craviotto 12x15 Baritone Snare was the hit of NAMM! The design for this drum came about as a result of playing the Craviotto 12x15 orchestral snare. The sensitivity of that drum was so fine, that we envisioned a standard snare bed on a drum with legs that could serve as an auxiliary snare and also serve as an additional tom. The snare sensitivity of this drum is beyond belief. Pricing and other details soon. Meanwhile, call Steve for more information and to get an order in queue. We have several of these already in production! Available in any of the current Craviotto wood selections.

Craviotto Solid Shell Drum Set with Unlimited Series lug design

Craviotto will now make the Unlimited series lug available for drum sets. The first prototype set will be in our NY store very shortly and we will post photos. This provides an excellent option for people who prefer this lug design over the more traditional tube lug. More details coming soon!

Craviotto 11" tom shell and 11/13/15 tom option

Craviotto is introducing an 11" diameter tom. This size provides excellent versatility and pairs up beautifully with a 9x13 and also provides an extra option for the concert tom series as well. Excellent for those who prefer something just a bit larger than a 10" tom. The prototype will be in our NY store soon as part of a set that includes 7x11 and 9x13 rack toms, a 15x15 floor tom, and a 22" bass drum. The 11/13/15 tom configuration is also being offered as a new product option.

"Baseball Bat" bearing edge

In addition to the tradition 45 degree and 30 degree edges offered by Craviotto, we are now introducing a vintage "baseball bat" style bearing edge. This edge is similar to the rounded, warm sounding edge that was present on Ludwig and Slingerland vintage drums of the 50s and 60s. The edge is very round and cut with Johnny's incredible precision. The end result is an edge that gives a tremendous warm, fat sound to the shell. Try this edge on a mahogany solid shell kit, or, try it on a maple/poplar/maple hybrid solid shell. The maple/poplar/maple hybrid shell provides the sound characteristics of the vintage shells that used this composition, and when combined with the baseball bat edge it gives you incredible warm, fat tone with the sonic advantages of Johnny's incredible solid shell constuction.
