Craviotto USA Custom Ash Shell Snare Drum
The Craviotto Drum Company hold the legacy of the late Johnny Craviotto dear to their hearts and in his memory carry on building exquisite, perfectly crafted drums that represent the creator in every aspect imaginable. Constructed using an ash shell, the shell type of this snare drum has properties which are similar to that of a maple drum shell with a rich tone however a significant difference is the longer note and higher pitch this wood is capable of. A warm amount of mids and highs can be achieved with a relatively average low end. One distinctive feature of ash is the unmistakeable pronounced grain which can be seen on the drum surface and it pays homage to the craftsmanship and manipulation of this hardwood.
Each and every Craviotto drum benefits from having a single ply steam bent shell construction which uses 85% less glue than a ply drum shell, this approach using a minimal amount of glue allows drum shells to breathe, vibrate and resonate freely. In addition, 45º bearing edges were chosen for this snare drum and 45º bearing edges have the distinct quality of generating more attack and sustain allowing for a livelier sound, which some would say sounds more contemporary. Crafted in the Craviotto Drum Company workshop in California, USA; this snare is one little beauty that we're sure one lucky drummer will take off our hands in an instant!
