Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Club Jazz 4-Piece Shell Pack:

I have this kit and I ordered it in the marine pearl white finish. Firstly, every time I take it out of the gig bags my playing companions go "whoa!, what a great looking kit"! Then of course I say, "wait until you hear them!". I perform weekly with a 30 piece orchestra in a very large Southern Baptist church, play contemporary Christian selections, and I also do a Blues Brothers tribute review with 15-piece show band. All done with this very kit. I can't tell you about the depth and the warmth of this killer little kick! you must hear it for yourself. Now obviously, it is not the "high-line" maple kits that we are all drooling over in the magazines, but for a mahogany kick, it is phenomenal! I use the Evans EMAD drum heads for the kick, batter and resonant on the front, with NO dampening on the interior. It will quite simply outperform any other kick in it's price range and beyond. You'll have to spend some serious dollars on say a Gretsch USA Custom kit to do any better. Did I mention how easy it is to tear-down and set up???? Trust me if you gig in a variety of settings like I do, you must add this kit to arsenal of tools!!

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Club Jazz 4-Piece Shell Pack:

This is a perfect starter kit/jazz kit! Great value. The only thing I did was change the head tensioning and BOOM, the sound was there.Great punch out of the bass, more than I paid for.I even get a good sound out of the snare, after finding the sweet spot. I have some very expensive snare drums, but for the dollar, this one is just fine. I can't recommend it more!Snare players wanting to get into kit drumming need to seriously consider this kit. What a value!

GREAT BUY!

By Sam

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Club Jazz 4-Piece Shell Pack:

I just picked these drums up from my local GC. I needed a second kit to drag around to rehearsals. They are working out perfectly. I thought I was going to sacrifice sound based on the price and size of the drums, I could not be more wrong. Great sound...bass drum killer, snare drum too.

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Club Jazz 4-Piece Shell Pack:

The kit sounds swEett!!after all ita a gretsch!!Its very cheap,and very cool.It looks diffrent from other drums.The finish is the best part of the kit.I prefer zildjian jazz cymbals like a flat ride and very light hats.The crash is supposed to ring a tiny bit because its a jazz kit.Once again i prefer gibraltar hardwear and dw pedals,if you get everything here you will have a perfect jazz kit!!!!!

Extreme Value!! Versatile!!!

By Albert Moyer, Jr.

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Club Jazz 4-Piece Shell Pack:

I purchased my Gretsch as a quick toting pack and go kit with a different tone and sound. The kit does the job fine in any situation properly tuned. I use the Drum Dial tuner with 77 on batter sides and 70 on resonant sides. It sounds so retro with the Mahoghany wood shells. Play it to some Beatles records and you will hear what I mean. This kit is a great beginner or professional kit depending on your music genre. Extreme value!!! Versatile!!! Sounds great!!! Easy to pack!! My floor tom, snare, and rack fit in a rolling conga bag. Wow!! What more can one ask for at this price? Hope this review helps.

Gretsch Catalina

By Walker Beckman

from Vancouver, Wa

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Club Jazz 4-Piece Shell Pack:

This kit is absolutely a five star piece of artistry - from its Be-Bop funky beats to slow brushes and crisp response. This particular Gretsch, in my opinion, sounds best with Remo Fiberskyn heads. They give you the most versatility and range with the Catalina Club. If you are looking for a death metal or punk rock kit, this is not the drum set for you. I have been playing live and recording with the Gretsch Catalina Club (silversparkle) for close to 5 years now. It has served me well - worth every cent.

Great Kit!!

By Ryan

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Club Jazz 4-Piece Shell Pack:

I got this kit not knowing what to expect, but loving every Gretsch Kit i've ever played. The Catalina Club Jazz really delivers for the size and the price. Kick drum sounds big! Snare is great to but the toms won't tune low to give a deeper sound without lacking resonance so plan to tune them up. Finish is beautiful! NEEDS NEW HEADS! Once again i love it for everything from hardcore to indie dance.

Very pleased!

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Club Jazz 4-Piece Shell Pack:

I've had this kit in white marine for about a year now. I loved it from the moment I set eyes on it. I think it has helped me tremendously. I downsized from a 7 peice Tama Starclassic to get better with basics. Plus I love the extra room I have now. So heres what its all about: You gotta love the look of your kit. So that each time you pull it out you think 'Man that kit looks good!' and you'll feel motivated to play it. If you have any brains and a lil' money, you should know that you can make any kit or music instrument sound good. I love the G1's they put on these to start. Then I tried them with G2 Clears. Love those as well. I used the money from my old kit to get this and a Zildjian A custom package. Get yourself a drum tuner. They're not for dummies, they're for people who like to sound pro.

Gone Gretsch, won't go back

By Natey Q

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Club Jazz 4-Piece Shell Pack:

I bought this set knowing I wanted a set that was a space saver. They do make live shows easier for the bands im in, but the sound has not been compromised. The toms sing, and once the kick is mic'd which it should be anyways, it thumps. You will get the weird looks from others busting this set out, but that will all change once you start playing. I love this set and you will to!!!!!
