Craviotto 20/10/13/15 Limited Drum Set - Cherry #211
Here we have a Craviotto cherry kit from 2011. These shells are all signed. The drums are almost like new with very little wear and tear. The sizes are unusual: 15x20, 7.5x10, 13x13. and 15x15”. The 15x15” drum has a wood hoop so it can be used as a bass drum. This makes the kit incredibly versatile. This is an excellent opportunity to get a cherry kit right away for a good price. Call us in the Illinois store with any questions! NOTES FROM STEVE: Cherry is sonically like maple with warmth and lots of articulation. The grain on cherry is exquisite and "reddens up" over time, as is the case here. This set was built in 2011 and is set #211 (Craviotto has now built over 850 solid shell sets!). Given the age, the shells have matured sonically and as with all of Johnny's fine handcrafted solid shell drums, they just get better and better with age. The 15x15 floor tom/bass drum conversion also adds versatility here. Amazing set.
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 equaled. 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".
