Gigbag: November 2002

Drum Workshop Craviotto Solid-Shell Snare

Crafted from birch dredged from the bottom of Lake Superior, Drum Workshop’s Craviotto Solid-Shell snares are as popular as the previous snares DW made from sunken maple. With nickel-plated, engraved, brass counterhoops, vintage-style tube lugs, Remo Renaissance heads and Puresound snare wires, the snares are tricked out with goodies. You’d best get yours now as the drums are in limited supply-there’s only so much birch at the bottom of that lake, after all. www.dwdrums.com

Sonor Giant Step Twin Effect Pedal

It might take time to adjust to Sonor’s Giant Step Twin Effect Pedal-it’s a double-bass pedal you can power with just one foot-but the hard work will pay off when you discover the possibilities of hitting the kick heel-to-toe, so to speak. Adjustable to the size of your foot, the pedal is built sturdy and can accommodate different beaters for even more tonal variations. www.sonor.de
