Craviotto Custom Ash Shell Snare Drum in Sonic Blue
Created by the artisan genius himself Johnny Craviotto in his workshop in California, USA; Craviotto Drums is headed up by the man himself, who created this particular snare drum as part of the Custom Shop Series. This snare has some pretty impressive custom roots, with a size of 14" x 6.5" , Baseball Bat (top) and 45º (bottom) Bearing Edges, Maple inlay and of course the beautifully dreamy Sonic Blue finish, are just the start of this sonic snare!
With Johnny Craviotto's unique bending process, each and every drum that passes through the Craviotto doors is cured and hand finished to perfection, leaving you with absolutely no doubt that the strength and performance will match your killer drumming skills! Single ply steam bent shells are crafted from beautifully irregular premium wood boards which retains sound sensitivity like no other snare. This snare has made it's way from the prestigious Craviotto Custom Shop, which means this snare has been created to exact specifications and you better believe those specifications where chosen for their ability to perform!
Baseball Bat Bearing Edges are on the top of the snare and 45º Bearing Edges on the bottom you really are getting fusion from start to finish! Baseball Bat Bearing Edges are on the top of this custom snare drum and it produces a fat, punchy sound with fewer overtones and is perfect for a vintage style sound. 45º Bearing Edges were chosen on the bottom of this custom snare drum, presumably because 45º Bearing Edges generate more attack and sustain allowing for a livelier sound, which some would say sounds more contemporary. Together they come together to create a super unique mirage of sound.
Crafted using an Ash shell, which is somewhat similar to a Maple shell, similar to maple it is extremely all purpose, which has 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. The Sonic Blue finish is cool, calm and collected, with so much swagger it has a light and dreamy air as well as holding that striking sonic colour. The bespoke colour finish adds a level of cool to this beautifully refined artisan creation which is complimented with the Craviotto badge.
