Classic Gretsch Vibe with Explosive Birch Tone

The Gretsch Catalina Birch five-piece shell pack sports birch shells for an explosive sound and deep, thunderous tone. The fast response and vibrant sound make this an exceptional kit for any style, and a great setup for recording studios. You get two rack toms and one floor tom, a 5.5" x 14" snare, and an 18" x 22" kick drum. The Catalina Birch sports seven-ply shells with 30-degree bearing edges, which are responsible for that vibrantly warm and round tone Gretsch drums are known for. No matter what you play, you'll be grooving with the Gretsch Catalina Birch five-piece shell pack.

Gretsch Catalina Birch 5-piece Shell Pack at a Glance:
  • The explosive sound of birch
  • 30-degree bearing edges
  • Durable lacquer finish
The explosive sound of birch

Birch is an amazingly musical tonewood, and is perfect for drums. It's got a fast, explosive response that's also very dynamic, allowing the subtle details of your playing to shine through. And birch has a wide-ranging tone with incredibly strong fundamental frequencies, for a powerful sound with outstanding low-frequency impact.

30-degree bearing edges

The Catalina Birch shell pack sounds just like you'd expect from a classic Gretsch kit, thanks to 30-degree bearing edges (where the hoop meets the shell). At 30-degrees, the surface area between the hoop and shell is maximized, which optimizes the transfer of vibration. That gives Gretsch drums a fast response, warm tone, and punchy impact, and you'll hear it in every drum in the Catalina Birch shell pack.

Durable lacquer finish

Finished with a multi-stage lacquer process, the Catalina Birch shell pack is one sweet-looking kit. But looks aren't everything - the carefully applied finish is amazingly strong, helping protect your shells from life on the road.

Gretsch Catalina Birch 5-piece Shell Pack Features:
  • 5-piece shell pack with a fast, explosive sound
  • Color: Silver Sparkle
  • 7-ply Birch shells for a fast attack and balanced, wide-ranging tone
  • 30-degree bearing edges provide extra punch and impact
  • Tom holder has memory locks for easy positioning
  • Mini-GTS suspension system maximizes the tone of your rack toms
You'll love groovin' with the Gretsch Catalina Birch 5-piece shell pack!
