OVERVIEW

Experience the explosive attack of maple with this powerful Catalina Maple kit.

The Catalina Maple series starts with the Gretsch maple formula shell. Gretsch carefully developed the maple shell specification to produce tones that explode with attack and volume, and project a balanced amount of warm, low-end frequencies. All Catalina Maple shells are 7-ply, 7.2mm. Gretsch cuts the drums with 30-degree bearing edges for that "great Gretsch sound."

Gretsch hardware includes fully-adjustable Gretsch ball-and-socket tom holder with 12.7mm tom arms, 9020-style mounting brackets and their famous 5-lug configuration (a standard Gretsch feature for over 50 years) for all 10" and 12" toms. The rounded badges on this five-piece shell pack are a first on any Catalina Maple kit.

All drums feature a multi-step lacquer process that produces an extremely glassy-smooth finish that is hard and durable. In addition, Gretsch partnered with Remo drumheads to produce a distinctive batter and resonant head combination.

Catalina Maple drums are easy to tune and produce full tones right out of the box. Add-on drums are also available to allow for further drum set expansion.

Cymbals and hardware sold separately.

      Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple 6-Piece Shell Pack with free 8" Tom:

      I'm with Blind Dog on this one. They sound great, but there is a bit of work involved. Once you get them tuned though, all the work is worth it. They record really well in a studio situation. I'm finally getting the sound I've been looking for in my old pieced together set. I'm 100% happy with them.

      I would suggest the pdp maple concept

      By bradbennett.drum

      from draper, ut

      Pros

      • Beautiful finishes
      • floor toms sound great

      Cons

      Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple 6-Piece Shell Pack with free 8" Tom:

      So I loved everything about this kit in every way, the finish, the construction, the sound etc. The one thing that is bad about this kit is the design of the tom mounts. It has a rubber knob that rests directly on the middle of the wood of the drum shell. This decreases the resonance of the tom DRAMATICALLY. Even people without any musical background can tell the difference.

      If you are going to buy this kit, I suggest you purchase the old gretsch renown tom mounts to replace the 3 rack tom mounts, that will honestly make this kit receive a 5 star rating.

      If you are looking at other 7 piece drum kits like this, I will suggest the pdp maple concept. I own that kit, I have had it for over 2 years. It is awesome and sounds great, five stars.

      Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple 6-Piece Shell Pack with free 8" Tom:

      I love this kit. It sounds amazing. I would highly recommend it. The only con is the Rack tom Mounts can not place the toms where I like them to be positioned. This may not be a problem for some drummers. Everyone has different set ups. I like for my toms to sit low and almost flat maybe a slight angle. The mount is great for drummers who like the the toms sitting slightly higher and angled. I have gotten a tom mount and mounted to my cymbal stand to get the placement I want. So Easy Fix. Overall this is a great kit and I give it 2 thumbs up.
