Nice set. I like the sizes, & I'm intrigued by your use of 3 snares in your setup. How do they feature in your playing?

"Baritone" snare is kinda cool too :)

Thanks..
Well i like snare drums, in one shot you'll notice there is 4, i like the Baritone for cross stick, maybe one with the snare disengaged for a Timbale sound. no rules i just do what works.. Some say Craviotto's aren't worth it, i say thump these for a while and it MAY change your mind..

I'm pretty easy to convince about the benefits of steam bent drums ;) ;) ;) I've played many Craviotto drums. Nice instruments.

Beautiful drums, those Craviottos!

Although this thought crossed my mind: if manufacturers use the fiberskyn front head for their high-end drums, then the ultra-high-end drums should get a calf head on the front with FUR ;)

Now that is an elegant looking drum! If we drummer's do in fact buy with our eyes as well as our ears (as some people say) then that drum would sell itself.

I haven't gotten it home as of yet, but here is a pic of the snare! It sounds amazing!!... Oh, and it turns out that this drum is cherry, not mahogany.
