Craviotto 22/13/16/6.5x14" Poplar Drum Set-Vintage Series Proto
See our video for this set HERE.
The drum set here is the prototype we had Johnny build for the soon to be introduced Craviotto "Vintage Series". The Vintage Series will be solid poplar and generally in sizes 9x13, 16x16, 14x22, 6.5x14 with baseball bat edges top and bottom. This series is designed to replicate the full, fat sound of the '50s and '60s and works best in medium to low tunings. That's the sweet spot, and it is REALLY a sweet spot. They are incredible. The Vintage Series will be offered in sparkle lacquers only. It was originally envisioned that we'd offer sparkle lacquers as well as a natural finish. But, the beautifully warm poplar is a type of wood that has many variations in the color. Often poplar has browns and greens within the color. As a result, it is exceedingly difficult to find natural poplar solid boards that will match well. It took Johnny so long to build this set that offering it in a natural finish is just not practical. So, we're going to offer Vintage Series kits only in sparkle lacquers and this one will remain the "prototype". This is an incredible set as you'll see and hear when you see the video.
