CRAVIOTTO DRUM CO. from USA
Since the beginning of American drum manufacturing, the most coveted wood shell snare drums were made using a “solid shell” or “single ply”. Solid shell or single ply drums are made from a single piece of premium hand-selected wood that is painstakingly steam bent, by hand, into a drum shell. While solid shell drums have been around for nearly a century, only Craviotto Drum Company has perfected the art of steam bending and handcrafting solid shell snare drums, drum sets, and concert percussion instruments. Johnny has perfected his trade over many years and continues to implement the time honored Old World traditions that trace back hundreds of years.
