Default My New Craviotto Snare

Was in Tulsa, OK over the weekend and there happened to be a drum shop here. I went in and looked around and found only a few things i was interested in. One was a Longo snare and the other was a Craviotto. I was more interested in the Craviotto. Long story short, i bought it -- I had never priced them so I didnt know if i was getting a good deal or not, but i knew they were expensive. I played it at the shop for a while and just fell in love with the tone. Amazing. Then i had someone else play it as i stood about 10-15 feet back and it just sounded ideal. It cut but was very warm. The size was perfect as well. I cant wait to get home tomorrow and play it with my band.

Craviotto Solid Shell Maple Snare with reinforcement rings
14" x 6.5"
Diamond Inlay
Diamond Lugs
Craviotto Case
$675 out the door. They were asking $650 + tax

It is a beauty! Hope you are the one responsible for those stick marks. Looking forward to your review after you take it for a spin with your band. Bag looks like a nice throw-in. Enjoy FE. Joey

Wow, a solid shell snare drum. PURE wood sound...also it looks pretty.
Though I prefer Craviotto snares with tube lugs but that`s just a personal preference. =)

Congrats!

Karl

So when are you wrapping it with a sparkle finish?

Very nice. A little too pricey for me, but a nice drum none the less.

Great snare Elvis. The Crav on your Ludwig is prob the most desirable kit on Drummerworld right now!

great looking snare, bet it sounds super good also. Are the diamonds a Craviotto specialty?

That's a beauty! I love mine (2000, from the DW/Craviotto era) and it's the one snare that I'll *never* sell...it'll be in my collection until I die.

Awesome drum. I like the inlay a lot. Real classy.

Johnny makes good stuff!

Very nice drum! The inlay is great. I don't know why more drums don't have inlays - inlays are very common on other instruments, but not drums.

I wouldn't let a drum out of my sight, what a beauty. Congratulations. May your years be many.

Thanks guys... this one will not get a wrap -- hah. I know its so against me, but i love the inlay. i will admit that if there was one next to it with a silver sparkle wrap, i would have bought it instead.

The drum is so sweet sounding -- truly the best that i have ever personally heard. I like the diamond lugs... many many companies have the tube lugs, but you can look at that snare from 15 feet away and know for sure its a craviotto. Hell, i spent the money, i want to show it off :)

i actually did go into the shop to look for a snare to match my tama's, but i walked away with this one. i dont know if this is an exclusive inlay for craviotto, but the snare does seem special. The guy that sold it said it was a limited edition that was made for the "five star" drum shops.... i dont know if that was true or not, nor do i really care.

i have been thinking about new kits again lately.... now i am thinking about a craviotto.... whoah, thats bucks though.
