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.

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

    I take a few lessons with my drum instructor and when he let me jam on his kit [which is this one] wow...i was amazed at the sound plus the way i could move around the drums since its a fusion the shells are smaller...that was my first time playing a fusion kit and it will NOT be my last although im a big fan of birch these babies will not let u down in terms of sound and projection!!

    I got this as a xmas present last year, and this was my first kit but not the first one i had ever used. i have to say it was an awesome present. The sounds from the toms wen tuned right are really exactly what i wanted and the bassd rum is powerful. I put some moongel on my snare and it sounded as perfect as it gets

    Good Drums For An Experimenting Drummer.

    By BrainBashinDrums4Life

    from Orlando, FL

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

    These drums are great for a drummer just starting to get his feet beneath them. Put a set of Evans EQ2's or Hydraulics and they sound pretty good! Be careful with lugs they can snap easily if not taken care of when tuning.

    Great

    By BayouDrummer25

    from Adairsville Ga

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

    These drums are amazing. I just got them and I love them. I own the Deep Amber color and this picture looks nothing like what the drums look like in person. They look 10x better. You will be happy. I have played them live. They sound great with the new Evans EC2 coated heads on them along with the superkickII. I will let you know when I get them in the studio. Thanks Gretsch

    Projecting sound for pleasure

    By Music=life/love234

    from San Diego CA

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

    Most people think that you can judge a drum kit by brand to find quality. I have found that only to be frustrating, because all it creates is unoriginality. I didn't even know what gretsch was before playing this kit at guitar center. Im eclectic (love all music) and after getting it i realized that it's good for all types of drumming. You have to buy it. Everyone in the room will be looking at you, no matter what age or level of drumming you are at. The sound resonates beautifully because of the new maple fusion and it will last for ages (Depending on how you treat it of course)!

    Best kit for the price

    By jardy

    from St.louis MO

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

    I have been a Gretsch player for about five years and to get upgraded from the basic catalina club kit to a quality kit like the catalina maple with only about a one hundred and fifty dollar increase was the best choice i've made in my drum slection the bass has a nice warm sound with a bit of a punch for attack power and the toms are as rich as one would need

    Go Gretsch and you can't loose

    By Jerome

    from CA

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

    The Gretsch Catalina Maple kit is an excellent all maple drum set for the price. Finish, and quality put this drum set up there with those twice it's price, and with a free 16" tom you can't go wrong. Although there is no hardware, this may be a saving grace because it allows you to choose the hardware that is best for you. Tone quality is what you would expect from all maple shells. Did I buy a $700.00 kit or a $5000.00 kit can't tell the difference. The heads are not top of the line, but are good enough to get you started if you are on a budget. Very nice 6" deep all maple snare gives a very nice tonal quality and response. The only negative of this kit is the mounted toms have a tendency to vibrate if you don't push down, and seat them properly on thier rubber mounts. Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage was my first choice, but I decided to go with Gretsch, best choice I've made in a long time. This kit is worth every penny and then some, you won't be dissappointed with your choice, your friends will envy you.

    Great Drum Set for the money

    By lovinthegretsch

    from Indiana

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

    This drum set is pretty excellent buy. The heads arn't that great, but it is still worth your money. Once you get some new heads on it and get it tuned up it sounds awesome. The extra floor tom is a really great advancement if you are used to playing regular five pieces. The finish on these drum sets is vary atractive and makes it look more expansive than it actually is. I'm not to much of a fan of the snare, the sound isn't all that great. The 10 inch tom is pretty small compared to most toms, if you haven't considered that yet. I had a choice over this one or the catalina club mod so I got this one and so far I haven't regretted it, we will see how it does in recording.

    Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple w/ 16 inch tom

    By Picksandstixx

    from Piscataway, NJ

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

    I'm not taking anything away from this set, this set is amazing, but I'm not sure if it was just me, but, having the income that I do, I can't afford to change my heads very often. I just ordered new heads, only to realize, that the "Free 16 inch Floor Tom", was in fact, a 14 inch. I am extremely dissapointed, and am hoping to get a trade-in for what I spent $700 for. Anybody who gets this, MAKE SURE it's a 16 inch and nothing else. However, the quality of the drums are TOP-NOTCH. Highly recommended.

    Decent Drums

    By VicFirthFan123

    from Illinois

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

    When buying a pearl set or DW set you are mainly paying for the name "pearl" or "DW". But with this gretsch set you are definately paying for drums. These drums are great, I have really no problems with them. The added 16 inch floor tom is also amazing. The bass drum on this set (and most Gretsch sets) is probably the best I've ever played on. All in all great overall quality and unbeatable value.

    A Great Deal

    By Pete

    from Southern CA

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

    I had been a Ludwig drummer for a very long time. I switched to a set of Gretsch in the mid 80's. Simply stated, I loved them. They had sturdy shells, great hardware and a great sound. I dropped out of the music business for quite some time and recently decided to get back in to it. When I saw this kit for this price I thought -- they must be really lacking in quality. I never thought they could ever compare to that great Gretsch set from the 80's. Well, I was wrong. The shells, hardware and finish are great! They actually rival the sound of that kit of the 80's. I am so pleased! I never thought I would be able to get back in to playing quality on a low budget. The only thing that I would like to see is a selection of add-on toms in various sizes. Gretsch actually said they would have these out the 2nd half of next year. I sure hope they do! This will actually be the 1st kit I ever got drum bags for ? yes I like them that much.

    EXCELLENT Maple Kit for the Right Price

    By ulyanov77

    from Atlanta, GA

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

    This is a deal not to be passed up if you are looking at investing in a nice maple kit. The Catalina Maple kit appeals in many ways. This kit has nice warm overtones and fairly distinct attack, exactly what a maple kit should sound like. I've grown to love the mounting system for the rack toms, which in comparison to some other systems allow a good bit of give when the drums are hit, feels loose and not overbearingly tight. Unfortunately the drumheads that come with the kit are (like most other stock heads) horrible. This, however brings my next point, the value of the kit. With all of the money I saved on the kit (in comparison with other quality maple kits) I was able to replace heads on the same trip.

    Great quality, sound and looks

    By Featster

    from Portland, OR

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

    Got the Catalina Maple w/extra 16? floor tom in the summer. Important: they sound great out of the box! But I modified 3 things at little cost. First thing: had a local drum builder re-cut the bearing edges on my toms to my preference. Now they are cherried pro edges and tune with ease/consistency at a cost of $40. Second thing: changed the heads to Evans G1/G2?s. Third thing: put an S-Hoop on the snare. But remember ? they sound great out of the box!! My studio space is not acoustically good but once I got these in a open room ? WOW!!! Simply a pro-sounding set at a semi-pro price. They can record. Hardware is quality triple chrome (super hoops). Bass is unbelievable. Deep amber finish is stunning. I always get comments on look and sound. You can?t go wrong with the Catalina Maple, Birch or Ash. A friend has the Catalina Club Rock set (26? bass, 13, 16, 18)) and it rocks like Bonham & Derosier. The Club Jazz is great. You can?t go wrong with the Catalina line whatever your taste.

    Pro Sound...Amateur Price

    By JF

    from Lakeland, FL

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

    I've been studying jazz now for more than 10 years, and I recently picked up a Catalina Maple kit with the free 16'' FT. I use the 22'' kick for big bands and I converted the 16'' FT into a very warm sounding kick for small group work. In either setting I've found the toms to really speak clearly along with a nice punchy kick and a crackin snare. All the toms and the snare sound great at a variety of tuning ranges and the finish all around looks real sharp. At this price I recommend it even for a beginner, but also for pro's because of its quality! Gretsch has been doing it right for years and have certainly kept up on this great kit. Thanks GRETSCH!

    SO MUCH TONE!!!

    By COVINEdrummer66

    from Drum Land

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

    I bought this kit a few weeks ago, and I must say, right out of the box the shells were amazing! They look beautiful (especially in the deep amber color), and have an awesome tonal quality.. even with the stock heads! They'd probably sound even sweeter with some Evans EC2's. I love my new Catalina Maple kit, and plan to play many shows with it in the future. Thanks for making great sounding, great looking, durable drum Gretsch!

    Professional Sounding Kit for cheap

    By Matt

    from New York

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

    The Catalina Maple Set is by far the best sounding kit on the market for under $1000.00. Out of the box it produces a great fat jazz sound, but throw some EC2's on and you'll get a perfect rock and punk punch. The only complaint I have is that I wish the toms came mounted on racks rather than being bass drum mounted, they seem to wiggle a bit. However for the price that Gretsch is letting these go for this complaint can easily be overlooked. Overall this set has the sound, the durability, and the looks that will make even a vetran drummer smile!

    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.
