Using his classic “Solid Shell” design and meticulous drum-building skills, Johnny Craviotto established a reputation for creating some of the world’s most coveted drums. Despite his untimely death in 2016, his reputation continues to grow under the watchful eye Johnny’s interns and apprentices. This year, the Craviotto Drum Company will once again contribute a custom snare drum to Hit Like A Girl and the female drumming community.

In 2021, the master drum builders at the Craviotto teamed up with graphic visionary Lola Blu to create an incredible snare drum for the Hit Like A Girl X contest. This is a completely unique, one-of-a-kind snare drum was hand-painted by Lola Blu and features the world-famous, handcrafted, Craviotto “solid” snare drum shell. The highly-coveted one-ply, solid shell provides body, tone, and sensitivity. Although Johnny Craviotto passed away in 2016 and wasn’t able to personally create this drum, his magic recipe and passion live on in his team and the drums that bear his name.
