Manufacturer's Description from Craviotto

An innovative new metal shell offering from the one-ply, solid shell specialists, the Solitaire Series represents everything you know and love about the Craviotto Drum Company.  The Solitaire snare drum is rich on innovation and craftsmanship, and features a price point geared towards providing working drummers with a handmade, boutique metal shell offering of unparalleled quality.

Craviotto’s Solitaire Series was designed to perform flawlessly in all musical applications. As with all Craviotto Drums, the secret to our sound is contained within our shells. 

The Solitaire snare drum begins with a premium thin-wall, aero-grade aluminum shell that is hand-rolled in the USA.  The Solitaire’s aluminum shell provides uncompromised strength, surprising warmth, unquestioned clarity, and substantial body with enhanced mid-range projection.

Solitaire snare drums feature our innovative dual diamond venting system modeled after our signature wood inlays found on our one-ply, solid shell wood Custom Shop drums.  

Solitaire snare drums also feature Craviotto’s new, low mass single-point diamond tube lug. This solid brass lug allows the shell to vibrate more freely. 

The Solitaire Series shell speaks clearly from the softest whisper to the loudest roar making it truly versatile for all performance applications and environments.   The Solitaire is also incredibly microphone friendly, making it the obvious choice for artists and studios. 

Available in 5.5x14 and 6.5x14, Craviotto Solitaire snare drums are available in the following finishes: Matte Black and Aged Pewter.  Solitaire snare drums are outfitted with triple flange hoops, Craviotto custom snare wires, and a Trick GS007 Strainer.

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.
