I have played on many sets before. But this is a steal for the price. They sound great and look even better in person. Get you some evans G2's and go to work.
probally the best sounding set i have played in my LIFE! no joke! replaced with some fresh evans and the sound of this birch kit will sing to you!also the kick has a deep tone that does give a nice punch! but too bad gretsch has discontinuedmaking these sets...
I purchased this kit, hoping for a decent set. My expectations have been far surpassed. I replaced the stock heads with Evans ec2 clear heads, and they sound great. The toms have a nice full sound, snare can be tuned to get a decent sound, and the kick definitely has some punch. The hardware is very solid, and the finish on the drums is gorgeous. Everyone that plays my kit loves it.
This is a very nice set. Ive owned it for about 3 years now. The ball in socket mounting system allows for maximum moveability for the toms. The kick sounds like a cannon. Each drum has very nice tone for rock and jazzy styles. The only thing i wish i did differently was got the standard sizes because the toms are a little bit too high pitch for my likings. Overall great kit for the money.And the vintage burst finish is amazing.
Bought these budget priced drums for the rehearsal studio, but was so pleased with the appearance and sound, I used them on gigs. As with most lower priced drums, changing heads and snares will improve the sound. I've owned Slingerland(2), Ludwig(2), Rogers, Pearl, and DW and these Catalina birch drums hold their own with any of those top line drums. You'll have to pay so much more to get a better sounding or better looking set.
This kit is so versatile, I use it for my jazz and heavy metal bands, and it sounds great for both!
Wow, I purchased this set at a local drum store and I couldn't be happier with it. Every drum sounds amazing but one thing that i would recommend would be changing the heads (they sound like paper). I think I'm going to get the 16 floor tom and the 8 mounted.
I've wanted a birch kit for years. I just picked these up and recorded with them today and they rock baby! The toms are in the mix and the kick sounds round and in your face. Granted, I did re-head them with pinstripes and a power stroke. The hardware is better than I thought it would be. I saw a Catalina Ash kit at the music store and the hardware looked like it wouldn't hold up. The T mount has bolt through action, not threads tapped into the cast iron. I had a Ludwig mount I had to replace with Gabralter because it was made that way and pooped out quickly. The drums feel solid and sounds awesome. The snare is ok. I put a coated ambassador on it and it's got punch. It's not as good as some of my other snares for recording, but it's got pop. The color was bluer than the pictures on line. I thought the Carribean Blue had more green in it, but it's blue. The price was right, jump on yours before they are all gone. Keep on rockin'. Peace.
Well I bought this kit in chestnut fade and it had the quality of a $2,500 kit, no joke! I was going to buy the gretsch catalina maple but the birch was thicker so I gave it a try and after 40 years of playing, all I can say is wow! I put some evans ec2's on and it had truly amazing tone! Pro quality kit....enough said!
I own this drum kit and i couldn't be more happy with it. I've even played dw kits and thought this kit sounded 10 times better!! No lie! They sound great with any type of music. You will not be sorry if u purchase this drumset.
