WHY CHOOSE CVL
CVL Drums is not only a product ... but a lifestyle choice
CVL uses 100% quality A selection of wood outside and inside the shell.
CVL was able to develop a particular technology, completely different from standard building techniques of plywood shells building for drums.
Besides the design and the experience in the field of wood, CVL is able to build directly in its factory the machineries needed for construction of wooden drum shells.
If the conventional technologies obtain cylinders that have material discontinuity in radial direction than in circumferential, with CVL technology the cylinder has a good uniformity, with a lower concentration of tensions training of the cylinder, which allows CVL to avoid ovalization of the shell and not to use reinforcement rings.
No wrap or covering
CVL uses very elastic lacquer/varnish to leave the maximum vibration of the wood and to ensure the long life of the finishes
A working-process made completely by hand by skilled workers, that are able to apply many thin layers of lacquer/varnish without defects, leaving the best smooth surface.
Woods, glues, varnishes must pass strictly tests when they arrived to CVL plant and they must respect several regulation about use and conservation.
Each CVL Drums product has a code inside all shells, that allow to know all their story.
When the set is delivered, it will be accompanied by a certificate of originality and warranty that contains all info about wood, finishes, dimension and optionals features.
