Gretsch Catalina Maple ‘American Fusion’ Shell-Pack, Silver Sparkle

Gretsch Catalina Maple shell-packs are superb 5-piece Maple shell-packs at a fantastic price point. With the same build quality as their Gretsch Catalina Club series siblings, Catalina Maple set the standard for entry-level maple shells.

Gretsch have carefully developed their maple shell specification to produce tones that explode with attack and volume and project a balanced amount of warm, low-end frequencies. These Gretsch drum kits ooze Gretsch quality with perfectly round shells and smooth bearing edges.

All Gretsch Catalina Maple shell-packs have the following collective features:

  • 7-ply, 7.2 mm shell construction
  • New round badges
  • Full bodied tone
  • Classic Gretsch 30 degree bearing edges
  • Retro style Gretsch shell hardware
  • 2.3mm steel hoops
  • New low-mass, low-profile 2-point Tom suspension mount
  • New badge style Bass drum bracket
  • New Tom holder
  • Remo single-ply coated drum heads

Gretsch Catalina Maple ‘American Fusion’ shell-packs have the following components:

  • 1x 14″ x 5.5″ Snare Drum
  • 1x 10″ x 7″ Rack-Tom
  • 1x 12″ x 8″ Rack-Tom
  • 1x 16″ x 16″ Floor Tom
  • 1x 22″ x 18″ Bass Drum
  • 1x Double Tom-Holder

However, we know that some of you won’t necessarily want the Snare Drum so we are giving you the option to buy this shell-pack without the Snare Drum.

We love the way Gretsch have ditched the old clunky shell depths on the Rack-Toms whilst the competition stay in the 1990’s at this price-point.

Remember folks, there are no cymbals, stands or pedals included with any of these Gretsch Catalina Maple shell-packs! Just drums!

We have had customers buy these kits as ‘second’ drum kits and found them to be so good, they’ve dispensed with their more expensive models!

Gretsch Drums – over 150 years of drum manufacturing history that just gets better!
