Default Craviotto Snare (Ludwig Be-Bop, Bosphorus)

Just got it in a few days ago. Beautiful Craviotto Maple snare. 5.5X14. This snare went with Craviotto kit #008. The guy that bought the kit wanted a deeper snare so Maxwell Drums had this for sale as a special item. Sounds great!







And here it is with my kit. Ludwig Classic Maple (8X12, 14X14, 14X18), Zildjian New Beat Hats, Bosphorus 21" Trad Ride and Bosphorus 22" Masters Ride.

Yes. Obviously some great hats are in store next. But... I'm gonna have to wait a bit. That Craviotto took all my cash.

You know not to say that the New Beats aren't great hi-hats, it's just that when you're not in the room, the Bosphorus keep giving the New Beats a wedgie.

Very beautiful. Is that an inlay, or part of the finish? I really like it either way.

Boah!
What a kit....I`m very impressed.

From how many plies is that Craviotto made and how thick is the shell?

The little diamonds around the shell are inlayed in the wood. Not sure how deep they go. I do know that they don't go all the way through though.

The shell is a solid steam-bent shell. One ply. With reinforcing hoops. Not sure of the thickness. I will say that you really can hear the wood when playing this snare. It is very sensitive. You better be precise playing this thing because you can hear everything.

P.S. We're putting together a jazz quartet for a recording mid-November. So I should have some sound up soon.

Very nice find, looks like a keeper. If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for it?

Umm... I'd rather not say. But you can get the answer by going to www.maxwelldrums.com. It was the same price as the Craviotto Limited Edition snares.

I will say that my teacher has pounded into my head that you need to get a great snare since that is your main instrument along with your ride cymbal. He has the Limited Edition Birds Eye Maple snare. I played it at a few lessons and sat in at a couple of his gigs. It sounded goooooooooooood.

And I recently saw Scott Amendola (You can find his profile here on Drummer World.) and he was playing a whole Craviotto kit and the sound was amazing. It was an outdoor patio pub type show. I could've sworn his bass drum had a mic on it, but nope. It just sounded that good.

This snare came with an Aquarian Modern Vintage head on it. But after playing this snare for about a week, I think I'm gonna switch over to a Remo Coated Ambassador. The Modern Vintage head just sounds a little dead to me. I'll let you know.
