don't you mean a 12 lug program?

:-)

I can't add anything that hasn't been said as far as the coolness of the collection.

I can say that the Diamond Craviato snare is one of the BEST sounding drums I have ever had the pleasure of playing.

Your engraved gold drum is stunning.

The Joyful Noise drum posted looks awesome too. I hear they make really nice stuff.

You might want to check into Innovation Drums if you get a chance.
Steve Badalement is making some seriously fantastic instruments you might be interested in.

Anyway, this is a brilliant collection of some excellent snare drums...all together they must be worth a car, furthermore the personal value must be huge of course.

This natural-finished Craviotto with brass hardware parts reminds me of Jeff Ballard`s snare drum a lot.
How`s the sound of the Sonor Artist when tuned high?

Karl
The Sonor is very crisp but still has body to it. I used it the other day for a blues/jive/swing gig and it sounded excellent. Definately has an old-school feel to it due to the hoops. Really nice drum.

For anyone interested, I've updated the Photobucket page with new pictures of the second bubinga.

Not quite, but I do have a room with floor to ceiling stacks of drums. Will take a photo if I remember

Happy to oblige -

12x7 something in something ply (basically I can't remember what it is, and if you think that sounds terrible, I'd agree)

I can't see the inside of the shell, but it looks like it might be a "marri" wood ply? I have a marri in the blackheart satin finish. I also have the Jarrah Ply (redder in color) in a wandoo finish.

Hey, Dave.

I see you have added to your magnificent collection since last time we spoke: just fantastic! I'll post my latest additions when I can organise myself...

I'm thinking of adding one of those Craviotto Diamond snares (in copper) to my collection. Can I ask you, which of the two shell depths, in your opinion, offers the most clarity and sensitivity across the (individual shell's) tuning range? Are you equally knocked out by the copper drums as you were the original diamond series?

All the best mate.

Hey man, how's it going?

To try and answer your question in my normal backwards manner - I am really digging both of the brass drums at the moment whereas I originally only liked the 6.5" model. This has proven to be the same thing with the coppers; I got the 6.5" first and then a week later the 5.5" turned up.

At the moment, I'm digging the deeper drum more I think because it has a tiny bit more depth/fullness in sound. I know that sounds daft, because obviously it will have, but it does have an edge over the smaller drum I think. I've tried both drums with coated ambassadors and the 5.5" with a renaissance too. I think with the drums that Adrian makes sensitivity etc isn't really an issue - they're just great drums and I'm currently using the 6.5" brass drum as my main go to drum for recording out of everything available. There's just something about it that sounds soooo good.

Best thing I'd do, if you haven't already, is go to Steve Maxwell's site and check out the sound samples he's done.

Hey Dave.

Good to hear from you again. Things are fine here, thanks for asking. I hope things are equally fine your way!

Mate, talk about coincidence! I was checking out the Steve Maxwell site only a few days ago. I listened to the Craviotto Diamond sound samples you spoke of. They sound very nice!

I also noticed Steve is selling one of the Craviotto "abalone" drums, of the kind you have in your collection. Apparently there were only three of these made? Wow, that means your Craviotto collection is quite a collection indeed, what with the rare bubingas as well. Cool.

I have picked up a few more drums since we last spoke. Here's a link, if you want to have a look.

Anyway, take care, Dave, and all the best.
