Overview

The Gretsch Catalina Maple Fusion Shell Pack with free 16" tom features 6-ply maple shells (natural finished interiors) for warm, balanced tones and clear UV gloss finishes for a stunning professional appearance. If you thought you couldn't afford an all maple set, this set comes at a price that will make you reconsider. Shell pack only. Cymbals not included.


The 10" x 8" and 12" x 9" toms are mounted on a GTS suspension system that's designed to allow every ounce of the maple full tones to ring free and clear. The 14" x 14" floor tom no longer stands alone; standing proudly at its side is a FREE 16" x 16" floor tom that is sure to inspire new creative fill patterns and groove inventions. The 2.5mm triple flange hoops on all drums provide full, open tones and a wide, strong and stable tuning range.

The snare drum is 6" deep to give you added power and tonal depth in a wide range of tunings.

Mini Gretsch Lugs add a clean design to the overall appearance of the Catalina Maple set; die-cast bass drum claw hooks and matching wood hoops give added strength and functionality to the 22" x 18" bass drum.

The Gretsch Catalina Maple series is a serious choice if you're looking for an all-maple, professional sounding drum set at an affordable price. Cymbals and hardware not included.

Great value

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple Fusion Shell Pack with Free 16" Floor Tom:

I have owned this kit for about a year and a half. The finishes are beautiful, but very fragile. I recommend this kit for studio use or as a fixed piece for use in a church or Auditorium. I definetly do not recommend this kit for heavy gigging. I will say that these drums project better than any kit I have seen in this price range. The bearing edges are pretty cleanly cut and the hoops and lugs are sturdy. The bass drum would be better suited if it included a rubber pad to affix a pedal to the hoop. I do recommend changing the batter heads on all the drums. Stock batters are weak at best on this kit. I have played Evans Hydraullic, Clear and Coated EC-2's and Remo PinStripes on these drums. The EC-2's seem to bring out that classic Gretsch tone in these drums. The Kick drum sounds fantastic with different head configurations ( I like the Emad). For someone who enjoys taking care of their stuff this is a great kit. For the abusive heavy-hitter types look elsewhere.

First Set Rules!!!!!

By Blaze99960

from Minnesota

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple Fusion Shell Pack with Free 16" Floor Tom:

This is my first drum set even though I have been playing snare drum for over two years. I love it, especially the extra tom. I asked all the drummers that I knew and my drum teacher (he's also my band directer), who has been playing drums for over thirty years recommended it to me. Sence I have gotten it I have had no major problems; all the drums sound beutiful (after I tuned them), I havent had any problems with the mounted toms or the floor toms and the snare is better than my old on. All the harware is especially sturdy and dosen't wobble. The mounted tom suspension system gives them a perfect ring and the bass drum has held up perfectly. Every person who is thinking about getting a drum set should get this one!!!!

WOW

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple Fusion Shell Pack with Free 16" Floor Tom:

I can not praise this kit enough. It is wonderful and a perfect example of that gretsch sound. The tom mount does rattle a bit if not put together properly but I took care of that while tuning. This is a wonderful well rounded kit. I can not praise the 14x14 floor tom either. I was not so sure how I would like it when i first set it up but now it has grown into most of my fills. This is a great set that can compete with most high end kits if tuned properly with the right heads. Gretsch is defiantly the only company I will be getting my drums from , from now on

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple Fusion Shell Pack with Free 16" Floor Tom:

After 20+ years of another major brand, I came out of retirement to play with my kid & a freinds kid for fun.I bought this kit and the "metal-head" of old re-emerged with a vengence.This kit gives me an awsome range of tone and lets me add radical high-end rolls & with an Evans EMAD bass head & Pearl Eliminater d-peadal,I'll take on guys half my age for sound and speed. What an awsome mid-life crisis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Great kit for all styles.

Nice kit Great Price!

By Dwayne

from Riverdale, Maryland

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple Fusion Shell Pack with Free 16" Floor Tom:

This is a nice set I love the finish and the extra tom, The snare is ok as a back-up the reason I gave this set 4 stars and not 5 is because of the drum heads. First thing to do when buying this set is get drum heads for a nice deep sound. I did have a issue with the tom ring they aren't that straigt making it hard to tone.

Excellent kit for the $$$.

By G Man

from Piedmont, SC

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple Fusion Shell Pack with Free 16" Floor Tom:

Bought this kit in February after several months of research and browsing. Maple shells on all, four toms, rich natural finish. I just could not find a better buy. Put on Aquarian Studio-X Coated tops and Evans G1 Clear bottoms. Very warm and resonant, add Evans e-rings, good volume and tone. A month later I let a friend use them at a show, beautiful center piece on stage. Several other bands were there and everyone was impressed with the look and sound of this kit. Natural finish is excellent, I have the Red Cherry, but if you move it alot I'd invest in cases. The only reason I can't give it a perfect 5 is there are better kits. I just don't think there are better kits in this price range.

AWESOME DRUM SET

By Jerad

from G.A

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple Fusion Shell Pack with Free 16" Floor Tom:

This is THE drum set to buy!! You really can�ۡ���t get any better than this for the money. I have owned mine for about six months and it sounds great. I LOVE the kick drum. It has the punchy bass sound that I like. The worst part of the kit to me is the snare and it still sounds pretty awesome. Don�ۡ���t hesitate to buy this if you're looking for a solid drum kit. It won�ۡ���t fail you.

What a sound!!

By Nathan

from Mass

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple Fusion Shell Pack with Free 16" Floor Tom:

My first Gretsch kit. I just picked up the Red Cherry kit and it looks amazing. On the bass drum I have a evans emad head. It definetly packs a punch. I didnt need a pillow or anything because it tuned so nice. The toms sound amazing. The maple allows very easy tuning. Such a nice "boom" sound. My only complaint is the heads that come with it. If you play with some power you will be replacing them quickly but big woop. Youd be doin that anyway. Great value for the money!!!!!!

Beautiful

By Nate

from California

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple Fusion Shell Pack with Free 16" Floor Tom:

The Deep Amber is so much more beautiful in person than in this picture. I am disappointed with the heads. The snare head is great, but the toms are too twangy. I'm probably going to get some Aquarians for the toms. The kick is perfect with a pillow in it. Buy it, but expect to have to buy some new heads too.

Amazing drum set at a great price READ!

By Tobes

from LAH

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple Fusion Shell Pack with Free 16" Floor Tom:

I got this set about a month ago, and ever since I have been amazed with it. It was cheaper than my old Pacific set, and sounds way better. Every drum is really crisp and clean, and the way it's priced is amazing. I bought it knowing it was on the cheaper side, so I could slap some Zildjian K Customs, and a set of Iron Kobra Power-Glides, and let me tell you...the combination is spectacular. The drums have stayed in tune amazingly well also. All of the drums resonate wonderfully, and with some added 2-ply heads (Remo) it sounds even better. Every time I finish jamming, I miss it! The extra 16" floor tom is a beast of a drum and is great for those Led Zeppelin-type fills, and is just overall a great addition to the set. It's a beauty of a set too. I got the brown, earth, terra color and it's gorgeous. I have had many comments on it looking like a piece of expensive furniture. The red cherry color looks much better in person, but I think the wood color is prettier. Great set!
