Gretsch and maple combine in a classic drum combination for the ages.

The new Catalina Maple series starts with the Gretsch maple formula shell. This carefully developed maple shell specification produces 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, and are equipped with classic Gretsch features and hardware.

These features include; 30-degree bearing edges; fully-adjustable Gretsch ball-and-socket tom holder with 12.7mm tom arms; 9020-style mounting brackets and the famous 5-lug configuration (a standard Gretsch feature for over 50 years) for all 10 / 12 toms. All drums feature a multi-step lacquer process for an extremely glassy-smooth finish that is hard and durable.

In addition, the drums are fitted with Evans drum heads to produce a distinctive high-quality batter and resonant head combination. The drums are easy to tune and produce full tones right out of the box.

22" x 18" kick

10" x 8" and 12" x 9" toms
14" x 14" and 16" x 16" floor toms

Gretsch Catalina Maple Review

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

Totally happy and really looking forward to putting some miles on this kit.......
Just got done playing my Catalina Maple 7 piece set for about three hours or so and I have to say that I'm very impressed with the melodic tones that I have created with the stock heads minus the snare...If you have any tuning skills you can get many tonal qualities out of the stock heads. I used a few pieces of duct tape on the floor toms and an Evans EQ bass drum patch on the batter for the kick with no other muffling. I changed the batter and snare side head on the snare and really torqued it out and actually like the sound, but will probably use my 13" DW snare and keep this stock one as a spare. I purchased all Gibraltar 9600 pro hardware and a DW3000 single kick pedal....Love the hardware and have zero complaints. For the cymbals I went a little low and will upgrade as time goes since I have taken a long break from playing and now my wife is angry that I stopped, she was quite impressed... I have the Sabian XS20 super set....Must say that I am very impressed with all except the hats....Will probably change out to the HH 14" like I used to play....Love the ride....the small bell really cranks and the crashes cut through like nothing else......All in all, this is a really great kit for all levels of experience and Yes, you can tune the stock heads for a great sound out of the box.....BUT, I will be ordering new heads this week.
The Gretsch hardware is very strong and and the tom mounts are solid and I really like the rubber stoppers they put on the rims for the hanging toms....Solid....The shells seem to be fabricated well for this small ply and I will give them a run for the money living in the humid temps of Florida....The color is amazing and fits well with the decor of my home...For the price I really don't think you can compare with other kits out there....Gretsch really hit a home run with this set as long as you can pair your hardware and cymbals to a mid to pro level upgrade....You will love the way this looks and sets up to your EYE...
Can't say anything bad won't find a kit at this size for the price anywhere.

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

This Drum set is pretty nice for the price. Alot of young drummers like myself always look for quality maple drum sets, but always have a difficult time to find a high quality drum set with a reasonable price. But im telling you, you wont be dissapointed with this drum set. Its affordable and sounds just as good as the other big named drum sets. First thing i would do though is ditch the stock heads, they wont do you any justice. With decent quality heads your drums will be singing in no time. The toms give you a nice warm sound with a good overall projection, you dont need any muffling at all. The bassdrum is what got me going crazy, with an emad 2 on it, it sounds like a freakin cannon!!!. The thing i didnt like was the snare drum in my opinion. the sound of it was just too thin for me, i ditched the snare drum and got a new one. Overall, the hardware is very sturdy, the finish is gorgeous, and the sound is incredible.

Unbeatable Value.

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

I am a lifelong player of the Gretsch Drums. I already had two USA made kits with the coveted Jasper shells. I bought these drums for playing out when I have to let opening bands use my gear. I immediately replaced the heads with Evans EC2's. I cannot believe how good these drums sound for the price. My color is the blue fade and the finish is beautiful. If you are going to buy drums in this price range, I cannot recommend these highly enough!!!!


Gretsch 6 piece Catalina Maple shell pack

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

I gave overall a 9. Two reasons: 1. The snare sounds terrible. I figured it would because your getting a high quality 6 piece maple pack for cheap. 2. Im not that impressed with the factory heads. They dont sound bad, but I believe they could certainly sound better with quality remo or evans heads. To finish my review, this unit was packed very well(youll get the kit in three different boxes) Also, except the bigger floor tom and the kick, everything came with the heads already on! That saved me an hour! Lastly, if you're lookin to upgrade but dont want blow a ton of $$$ but want a great looking and sounding shell pack, this is it.
The mounted toms can be adjusted just about anywhere you want. Without question, the best part of this shell pack is the kick. Even with the stock head, this thing is a cannon. But at the same time, it has a smooth mellow touch to it. I believe this kick could be used professionally. AMAZING! If you're like me and you dont really like that hollow open sounding kick, put a whole blanket in there and your're good to go!
I bought this shell pack in Trans. ebony finish. It looks great! Shiny, smooth lacquer finishes. All the chromed hardware is smooth and beautiful. Very high qaulity looks for cheap. The wood grain comes through just a little bit. Looks awesome.
Even though made in China,(everything is!) I believe the value is great on this shell pack. Smooth bearing egdes, quality finish, great durable looking hardware make this a 10 for me.
