Best set for the Buck

By k1sal

from Seattle Wa

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Birch 5-Piece Fusion Shell Pack:

I've been playing on and off for 35 years..no kidding. This is hands down the best set you can get for the money. The toms hook up without being cut into(rubber gromet mounts) and the bass drum kicks as good as any. I think this is the best set I've ever owned and I've had all the vintage Ludwig, Slingerland, Rodgers there are and still I love this one. Great sound, just buy the 16" floor and you're good to go...might need Aquarian heads to make 'em great but don't hesitate.

I Wanted A Gretsch Baby!

By Preston P. Pitko, P for Pearl

from Munising, MI

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Birch 5-Piece Fusion Shell Pack:

I have a pearl, ludwig, and sonar drum kit, but I've always wanted a gretsch kit since I was a kid. I picked up a catalina birch shell pack because the price was irresistible. When I received my kit I was disappointed because I had to repair a couple of bearing edges and replace a washer that was missing on the snare butt. I wish that the 10 and 12 toms had twelve lugs each rather than ten because it makes tuning easier. The finish is nice but has some noticable imperfections. The overall sound of the kit is really, really nice, with different drum heads. I'm putting on remo clear amb. I've also added a 1960 gretsch 5x14 snare which fits in nicely.

Great Drumset

By PoppaPanther420

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Birch 5-Piece Fusion Shell Pack:

I just got this kit this summer and it is awesome! I did a lot of shoping around before buying my first drumset and this one was the best for the money. This Gretsch kit looks and sounds incredible. Has the features of a pro kit for the price of an entry level kit.

Catalina Birch

Had the kit about 4 months now. Very nice for any gig you may need to play. The finish is excellent for a kit in this price range.

Beautiful Drums

By Rob Blind

from Ft. Worth, TX

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Birch 5-Piece Fusion Shell Pack:

I spent a lot of time looking for a set and this was the best bang for the buck I found. The walnut finish and is beautiful. I replaced the stock Evans heads with Aquarian heads. The bass drum is a cannon, the snare is crisp and responsive and toms really sing. I have been playing over 35 years and this set sounds and looks as good as any I have ever played. My only complaint is the hardware is a little clumsy and the flanged hoops seem a bit cheap. BUT! For the price this is a superb set.

Great Set For The Money

By Johnspearls

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Birch 5-Piece Fusion Shell Pack:

I have always been a Pearl Fanatic. I bought the Gretsch set for a practice set. They really sound better than i expected for a mid-range set. The only thing that i do not like is the snare, just can't get that poppy sound that i like. It sounds to muddy for me. I bought the Walnut color because of it's beauty. The Bass drum is very thunderous. The heads that come with the set are cheesy. Someone told me to try the Evans G2 heads. This set is very good for a intermediate set.

This set sounds great!

By Lil' Drummer Boy-0yeKI

from Sacramento,CA

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Birch 5-Piece Fusion Shell Pack:

One thing about this set, is that it is very lightweight and it sounds great, I have had a lot of people compliment me on how the set sounds, I suggest using Aquarian heads to get the better sound and a Piccolo Snare, the stock snare isn't that great. I have tried different sets like pear, yamaha,and etc. For the price this is a great set.

Amazing.

By Marimba_ninja

from Flint, MI

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Birch 5-Piece Fusion Shell Pack:

I use this kit as my main gig set, and it has never failed to amaze me. The dynamic range is just awesome, as well as the tone and the sustain. I Wouldn't recomend this for rock, birch is mainly a jazz wood. The factory heads are not good, I recommend G2's my self. Plays better than any of my other kits, and better than my firends starclassic. -sorry tama.

Awsome Set

By JTrain

from Bristol, TN

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Birch 5-Piece Fusion Shell Pack:

I own a "Gretsch-Black Hawk set" not the Catalina drum set . . . but it is the same thing pretty much! the set is great! may need new drum heads! and I would recommend to get a double-pedal for this set! Sounds awesome on it!! If it is in your price range-- BUY IT! it is worth it!!!

It has a great punch to it and has a beautiful finish with solid, yet not-so-user-friendly hardware. BUY IT NOW.
