I mean, check this out. Don’t know if they’re offering this “salesman” wrap but wow!

Yeah, that’s beautiful, no doubt about that!!! Very very classy and modern at the same time.

That's a really nice finish. The shells on these drums are super thin, if you haven't seen this series in person yet.

I played a set this past summer and they were fantastic sounding. If I had the money…

I got to check them out at the Chicago Drum Show this past May. They reminded me of Nashville era Slingerland drums, which is a high compliment from me.

Behind my kit
What an exceptional company Craviotto is. You absolutely know that you own an “instrument” when you sit behind one of these kits.


Except of course , if it’s not yours :)

Sam Bacco was involved with both the Nashville Slingerland and the Craviotto Diamond series.

Not that it matters, but do they make the shells or are they outsourced?

The good news is, many more players can finally afford more than a one or two piece Craviotto kit if it's a brand they have to have.

I’ve owned three Craviotto kit’s, all purchased used and I’ve never paid over 4K. I currently own one. And I’ve always used funds from the sale of other kits to finance them, so it’s doable.

I hope to get my Diamond kit soon!
The salesman wrap is really cool.
