Craviotto 22/13/14/15/16" Tonal Balance Drum Set - Maple
This 12x22, 7x13, 8x14, 9x15, 10x16" "Tonal Balance" kit is an example of an early brainchild of Johnny's. Johnny liked the idea of creating a solid shell set with shallower depths. The idea behind it is fairly simple: Johnny's solid steam bent shells have unsurpassed resonance and tone. As a result, with such wonderfully sonic shells it is easy to create drums with shallower depths and still retain the superb sound. The shallower depths allow the drum to respond faster and makes these ideal for live performances and also for studio work. Check out the video on this set. This one is done with a lower blues tuning for the toms. Also, I had done a video a few years back on another tonal balance kit which you can watch if you like. HERE.This one is done with a higher tuning. This kit does not have a kit number because these toms were ordered by me separate;y as an example of the Tonal Balance series, and then I ordered the 12x22 bass drum separately so we could sell this as a kit.
All Craviotto drums are made from single-ply, steam-bent shells which resonante naturally and purely, uninhibited by layers of glue. Johnny hand selects each board for strength, consistency, and grain pattern and the drums are built and assembled by hand in the California factory.
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".
