Let our professional drummers help you dial in the sound you're after.
Maple is the standard tone wood for Craviotto. It was Johnny's favorite species and can do it all.
You'll love the rich tone, mid-range projection, and timeless beauty.
Dark, bold, and recognizable, Walnut offers a smooth and
refined tone. Walnut is definitely the darkest tone wood we offer and its luxurious look is truly spectacular.
Our brightest tone wood, Cherry has great projection and an articulate response. Cherry has a lovely grain that is quite attractive. Cherry darkens in appearance as it ages.
Ash is similar to Maple with a slightly longer note and a slightly higher fundamental pitch. Ash's pronounced grain is instantly recognizable. Ash records exceptionally well.
A staff favorite, Mahogany is light and airy sounding. Mahogany has a distinct warmth and a "whispy" mellow tone that transports you back 60 years. A must for the drummer seeking vintage tones in a new drum.
