Craviotto 3.5x14" Mahogany Snare Drum - Rare Nickel Hardware
This is a very rare Craviotto. 3.5x14 snare drum in mahogany made in 2004. This drum was made specially for a friend of Johnny’s. It has nickel plated hardware with single flange rims with rim clips, and the Nickelworks snare strainer (which was state of the art at the time. Still works great). Drum has barely been played. Signed shell of course.
The Diamond Tube Lug Edition Snare Drum Collection are the flagship drums of the Craviotto Drum Co., and consist of high-performance and highly collectible solid-shell snare drums, made from exotic woods. American Ash, Birdseye Maple, Black Cherry, Mahogany, and Walnut allow a distinctive quality of sound and response to emerge due to the organic variety in the grain pattern and density and mass of each board. The rarity and limited availability of these exotic woods is what makes these drums Limited.
Each drum in the Diamond Tube Lug Edition Snare Drum Collection features hand-selected, handcrafted shells and gleaming chrome-plated hardware along with premium-quality components including Craviotto's "Diamond" tube lugs, Remo Ambassador drumheads and Puresound 21-strand snare wires. All drums come with a heavy-duty, padded Craviotto drum bag, and Trick GS 007 strainer.
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".
