At Winter NAMM 2008 the Craviotto team got much acclaim for their solid \"one ply\" drum sets and their variety of Custom Shop, Limited & Unlimited Series snare drums. In addition, Craviotto had the Craviotto/AK Diamond Series snare drums, announced in 2007, up-front and center to play and admire. New for 2008 are Craviotto\'s 26\" bass drum and 20\" floor tom. In the Craviotto Unlimited Series Snare Drum Line, the new 4x14\" and 4x13\" are available for immediate order. They have also started to offer hand-inlayed wood hoops.

Adrian Kirchler of of AK Drums had flown in all the way from Italy, to answer questions and be on hand to showcase the very limited hand-crafted, hand-engraved, nickel-over-brass snare drums of the Diamond Series.
Only 50 of the 5.5 x 14\" and 50 of the 6.5 x 14\" Diamond Series will be produced worldwide. Each drum will have its individual number engraved directly on the shell, under the Craviotto logo. Finished as nickel over brass, Craviotto’s signature diamond pattern is hand-engraved around the shell, then polished and buffed. Built with Johnny Craviotto’s trademark snare-bed and signature hardware, the Craviotto Diamond Series Snare Drum might become the diamond crown jewel of your drum collection.
Endorsing artists Matt Wilson, Ronnie Vannucci (The Killers), Matt Chamberlain (Tori Amos among many others) and Scott Amendola visited the Craviotto booth.
