Spizzichino. Johnny Craviotto's personal cymbal set
JOHNNY CRAVIOTTO'S PERSONAL SET OF HAND PICKED SPIZZICHINO CYMBALS. Many years ago (2003) Johnny visited Roberto Spizzichino in Italy. They spent a great deal of time together and while they were visiting Roberto hand-picked a set of cymbals for Johnny. Johnny treasured these cymbals for years and eventually gave them to one of his business partners. We are now making this set of cymbals available for sale, and the net proceeds will be used to begin a college scholarship fund for Johnny's daughter, Sophia. The cymbals include a set of 14" hats, an 18, a 20 and a 22. This set of cymbals is $15,000. (The market value for a set of Roberto Spizzichino's cymbals in these sizes is easily $8500 today. This set deserves a premium for the pedigree since it was hand picked by Roberto and belonged to Johnny). Also included is the cymbal bag. There were only 5 of these bags made. Roberto had them made specially. Each cymbal is engraved and dated by Roberto. These cymbals will not be broken up. They were hand picked and matched by Roberto for Johnny, so they will remain together as a set.
