Craviotto Custom Shop Flat Black Lacquer with Maple Inlay
The passing of the iconic Johnny Craviotto in 2016 signified quite rightly that his legacy will always live on in the fantastic drum kits that will continue to be made in his honour. Johnny Craviotto was a true craftsman and his love of drums was blatantly apparent, a love which has been undoubtedly built into each and every drum that passes through Craviotto's doors. We have this beautiful Craviotto Custom Shop Drum Kit that has just landed at Drum Shop and we can't wait to tell you all about this drum kit. Incredibly all purpose, this Custom Shop drum kit is dripping in maple. With a maple shell base as well as a maple inlay, each drum kit has a single play, solid drum shell which sets Craviotto apart from other leading drum manufacturers. Maple shells have the ability to produce an even amount of highs and mids whilst being able to produce dramatic warm lows, ideal for producing versatile compositions in any setting! The warmth that these drums produce are nothing short of crystal clear when it comes to sound clarity. Clear, concise and resonant, Craviotto really do pre-empt every thing you'll need and put it in place ready for you to focus on the important stuff, you're sound of-course! The aesthetic maple inlay is nothing short of a mark of distinction within this drum kit, the craftsmanship required to create an inlay is insane and Craviotto make it look effortless time and time again.
Each and every drum within this kit features a 45 degree bearing edge as well as Diamond Tube Lugs. The distinctive diamond tube lugs are distinctive and a signature design from Johnny Craviotto. After being enamoured by the unique diamond design Johnny knew that the diamond had to be part of his own line of drums and he wasn't wrong, the design adds a level of finesse and finery to the drums highlighting that no detail is too small to matter. The 45 degree bearing edge is one of the most common edges and can produce added attack and sustain when needed. Generally it is used to add a more modern and lively edge to the sound as well as increasing brightness. One thing we can say about Craviotto is that the finishes are timeless, this particular kit has a beautifully natural maple finish which is subject to a satin oil finish which of course has been hand finished to perfection. Not only that the iconic Craviotto drum badge graces each and every drum, the symbol of undoubted innovation, craftsmanship and quality. It doesn't seem to matter what place or time you place this drum kit it has an effortless classic air which is glowingly apparent in this high end drum kit and in fact the Craviotto name itself. Truly an outstanding 3 piece drum kit that is not only a perfect taste of Craviotto but a true reminder of how great a man Johnny Craviotto was.
