What We Think

This Craviotto 5.5x14 Diamond Cast Series maple snare drum is here on consignment and is in excellent condition. Originally purchased in 2006, this drum has been pampered and looks factory new, including the stock heads and snare wires. The Diamond Cast Series uses Craviotto’s legendary solid maple shell and precisely applied bearing edges. The Diamond Cast Series Drum also features the “Diamond” cast lugs, badge and butt plate. A rich, hand-rubbed natural satin oil finish further enhances the drum’s overall appearance and performance. This drum will ship with the Craviotto case and original factory box. No signature inside the shell.

About Manufacturer

Since 2004, Craviotto Drum Company has paved the way in offering custom built, handcrafted one-ply, solid shell drums.  Our aim is to explain how solid shells perform differently from ply shell drums. Craviotto Drum Company builds concepts.  We want to share these creations with you. We also want to promote our family of artists, and our family of dealers where you can purchase one for yourself.

Each custom drum we make is handcrafted by our small group of artists and craftsmen in California. We don't source our shells like other manufacturers.  We get our hands dirty. We start from scratch and see the process through all the way here in the USA. No shortcuts are taken, no compromises made.

Our process starts when we send our craftsmen to the source. Johnny and our team literally pick through millions of board-feet of wood determining which boards are good enough to bear the Craviotto name. And that's just the starting point.  

From there, each drum goes through Johnny's proprietary process and passes through the six most talented sets of hands in the drum building business. Each shell wears Johnny's fingerprints, sweat, and final signature of approval with pride.  Not every board makes it, only the best get Johnny's signature.
