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 equipped the shells with "Gretsch Classic" features and hardware, including 30-degree bearing edges, 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 Evans drumheads to produce a distinctive "Gretsch by Evans" 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.

Great Kit for a Great Price

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple 5-Piece Shell Pack with 20" Bass Drum:

To start off, this kit sounds great. The toms have a great booming sound, and with the right tuning, the snare sounds better than most. I don't mind the factory heads; they look and sound great. I bought the walnut glaze and I must say it looks way better in person. I recommend this kit over the other variant which comes with the extra toms if you're a fan of jazz and latin playing. Plus, you save a few hundred if you go with this one. The only issue I had was with the tom mounts. It makes taking the rack toms on and off a little bit of a struggle, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons when it comes to this affordable kit with a great sound and look!

Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple 5-Piece Shell Pack with 20" Bass Drum:

I just wanted to make sure that this is false advertising. This is not a great deal, it's not even a good deal. They are advertising this as $400+ below the list price when in fact they are selling it for list price. Personally I still love the drum set. It is responsive and versatile as promised with a great aesthetic look.

        Comments about Gretsch Drums Catalina Maple 5-Piece Shell Pack with 20" Bass Drum:

        The rack Toms come assembled and easily tuned. The snare rattles when the small Tom is played, still trying to fix that. The bass drum and Toms sound great, but I'm not really liking the snare, but I will keep tuning to see if I can somehow get it up to my liking. Overall a great kit under $1000, and even though they're made in China, the quality is very good. I wanted some made in USA dw maple shells, but that would've left little to no money for hardware and cymbals. I'm happy for now but still want the DW shells. Someday I will get DW and pass these down to my children.
