Craviotto says…“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. Craviotto’s Custom Shop offerings feature our proprietary lugs, as well as the flawless work- manship that has made Johnny Craviotto a legend among drummers and drum builders. Craviotto Custom Shop snare drums provide unsurpassed tone, unequaled performance, and offer a one-of-a-kind instrument as original as the artist playing it.”
