VIDEO. Steve’s notes: Here is a rare Craviotto snare drum. This drum is #9 of only 20 6.5x14 Ambrosia snares made specially for the Craviotto Drum Company 10th anniversary in 2014. Signed by Johnny and stamped as #9 and also comes with certificate. Johnny had selected Ambrosia maple for the 10th anniversary for a few reasons: a) Maple was Johnny’s favorite species. b) Ambrosia maple has an added warmth to it. c) each drum is unique in appearance. This is caused by the fact that a small beetle lives in these trees and bores into the wood in very small pin-point sized holes. These beetles leave a trail of striations in the wood, so every shell has a unique appearance. And, the very small holes create an additional venting option. The drum has a clear coat gloss lacquer finish and is in mint condition with only a few playing marks on the head. This drum has the 10th anniversary Craviotto badge, which was only used on snares and sets created for the 10th anniversary. Only 20 of these 6.5x14s exist. Check out the video from back in 2014. This video does not include the drum we have for sale, but shows examples of the sound for the 5.5x14 and 6.5x14 Ambrosia maple drums that were produced for the 10th anniversary.
