1. SOLD. Chicago Collection Craviotto AK Masters Brass matched n

SOLD.

This is a complete matched serial number set of the Craviotto/AK Masters Brass snare drums. Sizes are 4.5x14 (#7 of 25), 5.5x14 (#7 of 40), 6.5x14 (#7 of 60), 8x14 (#7 of 25).

All are New Old Stock. My video below explains these in great detail. The Craviotto/AK series were periodic limited runs done with Johnny Craviotto and his good friend Adrian Kirchler. Adrian is "The Master" of metal shells as Johnny was "The Master" of solid wood shells. They collaborated on several different offerings over the years, and the Masters Brass was the series from 2013. Prior series were done with just 5.5x14 and 6.5x14 drums, but for 2013 the decision was made to offer 4.5x14 and 8x14 in addition. The quanitity of each size was determined by examining the sales history for those sizes within Craviotto. 6.5x14 is the most popular, followed by 5.5x14, and then the 4.5x14 and 8x14. As a result, the decision was made to do 60 of the 6.5s, 40 of the 5.5s and 25 each for the 4.5 and the 8.

This set is special in that my client wanted all four sizes, but wanted serial #7 for each of these. Johnny kept a full set for himself, and I also had a full set (of which I now only have the 4.5x14 since I was talked out of the others, but I refuse to sell my 4.5!). So, the set we are offering here is the only other complete serial number set that was ordered as such from the factory and is New Old Stock.

As the video mentions, the sound of these drums is incredible, and the 4.5x14 that I have is so good that I sold my 20s era 4x14 Ludwig Black Beauty, because the Craviotto/AK sounds better. Check out the video below, and then check out the pics. Contact Steve at vintagedrums@aol.com or by text at 630-865-6849 with offers. This set will only be sold complete. We will not break it up. This set belongs in a world class snare drum collection. There is an appropriate reserve on this set given the rarity and condition.
