Craviotto Diamond Copper Limited edition snare drum.
It’s a busy day here today on Monday the 21st of August 2011, lots to do and lots of deliveries to get out the door.
One of the best sales of today has to be the Craviotto Copper Snare Drum to a very good customer of ours Ian Wynd. Ian has purchased many drums from us over the years and has one of the finest walnut Craviotto drum kits in the world. Ian called me at the weekend to say he wanted a copper Craviotto snare drum which we had in stock and he would call in today.
This Craviotto drum is stunning I got the Craviotto drums from a show in LA when I met up with Johnny and Joe at the Namm show ordered number 10/10 a 14” x 6.5” and its brother the 14” x 5.5” also number 10/10 with the intention of keeping both!
A dear friend Geff Hutchinson called when I was out in LA and decided he wanted to buy the 14” x 6.5” 10/10 so I let it go and kept the 14” x 5.5” 10/10 but as always I would sell my wife and kids so when Ian asked if I would sell the drum I agreed, Ian is a true drum connoisseur and has some wonderful drums in his collection.
So a huge thank you went out to Ian and he will be insuring the drum for £2500.00 as these drums are simply not available any more from Craviotto.
Thanks for reading this quick blog I am now off to collect a load of Evans drum heads from D’Addario
two drum heads in particular for a very famous drummer and a great British band with a fantastic drummer who are playing Reading this weekend who are our endorser’s of a new Custom Drum company
headed by Paul Luc Gifford (stay tuned).
Thanks again and have a good day.
