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.
