The pictured kit is not a Craviotto but a Summit drums steambent single ply curly maple drums set . The idea of a single ply kit like a Craviotto intrigued me but the co of the Craviotto was just not feasible to me . The Summit was very reasonably priced and the build quality was very nice . The drums were very lightweight (thanks to the shell and wood hoops ). The drums really were nice sounding but not noticeably more so than my Gretsch USAC or Ludwig Classic Maple. I ended up selling the Summit kit . If you absolutely are set on a steambent kit this might be a more prudent option compare to a Craviotto. Something else about steambent kits to be aware of - climate changes can affect these Tom and bass drums shells .
