Mahogany snare drums have a distinctively dark, earthy tonal quality derived from the more porous, less dense wood that naturally filters the snare's high frequencies. The reinforcing rings are used as a way to help counterbalance the Mahogany's prominent lower overtones by stabilizing the shell, raising the pitch and increasing its projection without sacrificing its unique tonal tendencies. Since their inception in 1990, Craviotto drums have been considered some of the most sought after instruments in the world. It is John Craviotto's master craftsmanship, and commitment to quality that has set his work apart from all of the rest. Once you hit one of these incredible drums, you'll see why it's no wonder so many players go to Craviotto to find their sound.
