Mahogany shells give you excellent low-end punch

The drums of Gretsch's Catalina Club 4-piece Drum Kit sport mahogany shells, so here's a handy Sweetwater refresher course on drum shell tonewoods: Of the "big three" - mahogany, maple, and birch, mahogany is the softest. Softer woods produce more bottom end, while the harder ones (birch, for example) emphasize higher-pitched tones. If you like lots of satisfying, organic low-end punch in your drum sound, the Catalina Club 4-piece Drum Kit is for you. It's a versatile kit, as well - perfect across a broad range of music styles.

Shallow bass drum depth heightens expressiveness and puts you in firmer control

The Gretsch Drums Catalina Club 4-piece Drum Kit includes a 14" x 18" bass drum. If you're accustomed to playing kick drums with a depth of 16", 18", or even 20", you've been moving a lot of air - some would say needlessly. If you're going for a punchy, contemporary kick sound, you'll find the 14" x 18" size relatively effortless to work with - particularly if you've got padding and a mic in there. The final ingredient in this sonic alchemy is the kick's mahogany shell - which gives you robust bottom end. With less air to move, you can be more fleet-footed and expressive with your kick drum. And expressiveness is what music's all about, right?

Be part of Gretsch's legacy in American music

The Catalina Club 4-piece Drum Kit is a proud part of Gretsch's legacy in American music. Everyone knows Gretsch electric guitars and drums, but did you know that got their start in 1883 as a banjo company? It wasn't long before Gretsch was making mandolins, ukuleles, and eventually flat-top guitars, contributing to the very roots of American music. So when you play a Gretsch instrument, you're playing more than a great axe, you're playing a piece of American music history.
