You'll love the vibrant sound of maple

Here's a handy Sweetwater refresher course on tonewoods: Whether you're talking drum shells or electric guitars, maple is an amazingly musical tonewood. It's got a fast, explosive response that's also very dynamic, allowing the subtle details of your playing to shine through. And maple has a wide-ranging tone that's suitable for any musical style, and perfect for recording in the studio. All these qualities make Gretsch Catalina Maple drums a superb choice for your next drum kit.

30-degree bearing edges for punchy impact

The Catalina Maple 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 Maple drum kit.

Be part of Gretsch's legacy in American music

The Catalina Maple 7-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.

7 piece Gretsch set

Fabulous set! Came with excellent double layer Remo drumheads. No need to replace. Really is a great set. Price wasn't incredible but included shipping which took that up. Notch also.

Good set for the money

I used to play a Ludwig set years ago back in the days when the three major drum complanies were Ludwig, Rogers, and Gretsch.(1970's) I got back into music seeing the other brands from Japan and other places anf felt that in some cases the porduct was very over priced. Having more of a back ground in Jazz I leaned toward the Gretsch product after studying the market, and I am glad I did. It sounds great and looks good. I have a 7 piece kit done in the walnut glase. There is something to be said about a company that has been around for a while making good drums. If I ever go to buy another set of drums this company will be my first second and thrid choice.

Great kit

For the price, you cannot go wrong with this kit. I did need to change the heads to get the tone I like, but that is most likely the case with any kit. I use pinstripe heads which would not come with any kit. Great tone and easy to tune. Finish is excellent. Hardware (rims, mounting brackets, etc) is ok and that is a part of the lower cost, but certainly not a deal breaker. The extra socket for a cymbal mount on the rack tom mount is a great feature and saves me from carrying another cymbal stand. The DW 9" stand fit perfectly. All in all I feel you get more that what you pay for with this kit.
Music background: Professional drummer since 1981. Currently performing with Dead Mile Dance.

Sweetwater is Top Notch!

Ordered my shell pack and they came a week early!!!! My sales rep was on point! Packaging was impressive and the shells and hardware jaw dropping in my studio. Comming from a pro audio sales and consulting world from years ago I can say that Sweetwater has my business won. If you are tired of the slacking lack of service and horrible wait times with guitar marts and amazon this is the place. It is very hard to impress me service wise and I am impressed! :)
