An innovative new metal shell offering from the one-ply, solid shell specialists, the Solitaire Series represents everything you know and love about the Craviotto Drum Company. The Solitaire snare drum is rich on innovation and craftsmanship, and features a price point geared towards providing working drummers with a handmade, boutique metal shell offering of unparalleled quality.
Craviotto’s Solitaire Series was designed to perform flawlessly in all musical applications. As with all Craviotto Drums, the secret to our sound is contained within our shells.
The Solitaire snare drum begins with a premium thin-wall, aero-grade aluminum shell that is hand-rolled in the USA. The Solitaire’s aluminum shell provides uncompromised strength, surprising warmth, unquestioned clarity, and substantial body with enhanced mid-range projection.
Solitaire snare drums feature our innovative dual diamond venting system modeled after our signature wood inlays found on our one-ply, solid shell wood Custom Shop drums.
Solitaire snare drums also feature Craviotto’s new, low mass single-point diamond tube lug. This solid brass lug allows the shell to vibrate more freely.
The Solitaire Series shell speaks clearly from the softest whisper to the loudest roar making it truly versatile for all performance applications and environments. The Solitaire is also incredibly microphone friendly, making it the obvious choice for artists and studios.
Solitaire snare drums are outfitted with triple flange hoops, Craviotto custom snare wires, and a Trick GS007 Strainer.
