Completely bespoke and entirely handmade, Craviotto Custom Shop snare drums were created to meet the needs of drummers who were seeking a truly customized, personal sound and feel. Each Craviotto Custom Shop snare drum is made from a single, solid board of hand-selected premium grade hardwood. Along with Johnny’s unique bending process, we cure and hand finish each shell to ensure strength, stability, and unparalleled performance.
Solid Beech -
Beech has been used in drum construction for a long time. While it may not be a visually outstanding wood it has its own unique qualities which make it a desirable shell material. Its structure is dense yet elastic.
A very sensitive stroke is able to resonate clearly and a very strong stroke can still have a controlled sound.
