Craviotto Private Reserve snare drums have their own special place in the world. As the name suggests, these special instruments come from a limited pool of exceptional or limited timbers that create unique and sometimes one-of-a-kind instruments.

In this particular case, this 5.5x14 Purpleheart solid shell with maple reinforcing rings is a one of a kind and destined to be one of the rare Craviotto finds to be released into the wild. Purpleheart is an exotic wood with sonic properties that lie somewhere between those of hickory and Bubinga. Purpleheart is highly desired by hobbyists and craftsmen who use the hard heavy wood in small woodworking projects and musical instruments like guitars. Most pieces tend to start bright purple when freshly cut, darkening over time to a reddish/purplish brown. The natural gloss lacquer showcases the natural beauty of the wood grain and adds depth to this beautiful shell.

Blessed with 45 degree bearing edges, it has articulation and the sensitivity you've come to know and love from Craviotto while the Purpleheart's sonic richness delivers a sound like you've not heard before. The classic tube lugs tune easily and hold tune easily as well regardless of your preference giving this drum a versatility that spans a variety of musical applications.  It also is equipped with the Trick throw-off, which has really become the industry standard for custom companies. Also included, you will receive a padded case to protect your investment.

Whether you are a collector or a working player looking for a unique sound, the Craviotto 5.5x14 Private Reserve Purpleheart snare drum carves out a rich sonic space with an aesthetic beauty that is commensurate to its sound. Discover the craftsmanship and commitment to quality that has set the Craviotto work apart from all of the rest.

Johnny Craviotto and his team of artisans are always aspiring to inspire. Craviotto’s esteemed Private Reserve collection represents the most sumptuous and superb offerings that grace our workbenches.  Whether an astonishing Ambrosia, a whimsical Curly Walnut, or a beautiful bountiful Birdseye Maple, Private Reserve drums are handcrafted from truly one-of-a-kind anomalous solid wood boards.
