Do you own a recording studio? If so, we have what you need for great drum and cymbal sounds:
Vintage drums and cymbals: For that great "vibe" that modern drums can't provide. Nice, warm 50s and 60s era Ludwig and Slingerland. Vintage 60s Rogers, and lots more. Old A Zildjian cymbals and Old Ks too!!
Craviotto solid shell snares and sets: The world's finest snare drums and drum sets, all one ply solid shell construction with the widest tuning range in the business. Superb sound, articulation and tonal quality. Unsurpassed!
Snare drum arsenal: We can help you construct an ideal arsenal of snare drums using either a) vintage snares, b) a combination of vintage snares with some of the finest new snares available today, or c) the finest new snares being manufactured today. One such configuration consists of solid shell Craviotto snares. Here's an example of a Craviotto Studio Setup:
4x14 solid maple shell for piccolo snare sounds with superb articulation, cut, clarity and tone
5.5x14 solid cherry for tightly focused sound with added depth.
6.5x14 solid walnut for even more depth and a slightly warmer sound
8x14 mahogany for superb "fat" sound with the extra-added warmth of a mahogany shell
5.5x14 or 6.5x14 heavy brass shell Craviotto snare. This snare has a hand made brass shell designed to replicate the heavy brass shell of the Ludwig 20s era drums. Superb articulation, focused sound and all the warmth you want.
Need even more high end piccolo "pop"? If so, add a 5x12 Craviotto maple
