Overview

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.

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

      I am a retired band director and semi-professional drummer. I bought this kit to get back into playing again. This set is everything the demo-artists said it was. It really does sound great right out of the box and the "Deep Cherry Burst" does look incredible. It is a very comfortable feeling set and it is easy to adjust to any playing position. For the price you can't find a higher quality kit. I am very satisfied!!!

        I love this kit, I play it every weekend in a classic rock band. Blends well with guitars, bass, keyboards, and saxophone. Excellent dynamic range, very responsive from super soft to banging loud! What you play is what you get!

        Long time drummer, these drums sound nice and look good but the outer wrap has many loose ares on the bass drum. Not what I expected from a former US made product. Should have returned them. Will sell and take my losses and get something better made.

        I would suggest the pdp maple concept

        from draper, ut

        Pros

        • floor toms sound great

        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.

        Amazing kit! Sounds great plays loud.

        By marcelo

        from Clinton,NJ

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

        What can I say. I have been playing for 35 yrs started with Yamaha then to Pearl. My current studio kit is a Pearl Reference kit. So when I embarq on a journey for a gig kit it had to fit the bill. 1) must be Maple 2) must be road worthy 3) must fit budget of $3500 ( kit,road bags,and hardware) Tall order. It came down to Tama Superstar and this Catilina. Not only did the Catilina play better with the stock heads but once you replaced then to Evans G2 the kit will blow you away! The only thing wrong with the kit would be an option for a virgin kick. I only set up the 12,14,16 and this kit groves. I play anything from Paul Simon the puddle of mudd and the kit so far holding up to my expectations. If your having second thoughts about this kit then go out and take them for a test drive. Price,playability and road worthy take from me who has gone through a ton of gear this kit will be in my arsenal for years to come. Cheers And keep playing

        By John

        from Maysville Ky

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

        Got this set in deep cherry burst from jimmy at gutar centar of Lexington Ky . Awesome set amazing looking and sounds great Jimmy was very helpful and the deal went down beyond my expectations. All so purchased a Gibralter gcs 375 rack system. Bought evans black chrome tom heads, evans hd dry snare head and evans emad2 bass drum head. This was an upgrade from my pearl forum series drum set. This difference is night and day. This thing booms and sings. thanks Jimmy for your help and expertise.

        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.
