2016 is going be be an even bigger year for the Center Stage series from Craviotto. For 2016 there will be even more in the way of options on this great series. In 2015 we launched this series with shell packs featuring 7.5x12, 12x14 floor tom and either a 12x18 or 12x20 bass drum. Now the following drums are being added and can be purchased as sets or as individual add-on drums:
13x15 and 14x16 floor toms
12x22 and 12x24 bass drums.
We will be listing two kits shortly with these new sizes. Meanwhile, check out the photos which show not only the original set but the new sizes in several different configurations. NOTE: The new sizes are shown with our Johnny C snare drum as well:
1) This is the 12/13/15/16 toms shown with the 22 and 24 bass drums:
2) Six piece configuration.
3) Four piece.
Here's the original from 2015:
CENTER STAGE: The new Craviotto Center Stage drum set brings you all of the fantastic Craviotto features you've come to love, in a new, compact offering at a fantastic price point. The Craviotto Center Stage sets feature Johnny's solid maple shells with inlay with 45 degree edges. These shells have all of the resonance, articulation and tuning range that you've come to love, and the new center lug design reduces weight and increases the already incredible sustain and projection. The new shallower depth also enables the drums to speak quickly. The set is offered in satin maple and in the following sizes: 7.5x12, 12x14 floor tom, and your choice of either a 12x18 or 12x20 bass drum. The small footprint makes it easy to fit into even the smallest venue, but the sound is huge thanks to Johnny's solid shells. And, the MAP (selling) price for either the 12/14/18 or 12/14/20 is only $3600. Imagine, a 3 pc solid shell kit with shells rolled by the "master" himself for just $3600.
