Craviotto/DW 1999 Original 5.5×14 Single Ply Rare Black Matte $999.00 Signed!!
This single ply, early DW/Craviotto snare is one of the best snares ever made. Johnny Craviotto’s love of solid shell snare drums began with an early Slingerland Radio King and evolved itself into the formation of one of the most enamored and well respected drum companies ever. This drum is the result of Craviotto’s early collaborations with the DW drum company. This 5×14 solid shell snare is one of very few finished in black as most of the drums produced in this period were finished in a clear matte finish. The drum is in virtually perfect condition. There are some minuscule rusty spots barely visible on the hoops. Nothing is broken, missing or altered. The photos depict the condition very accurately. The drum was hand signed by Craviotto in 1999.
