Hey everybody, today I’m trying out the Catalina Maple 7-piece acoustic drum kit from Gretsch Drums. The kit I’m playing has the Black Bronze Sparkle finish, which looks outstanding under stage lights. I really dig this kit: the drums tune easily, and you get lots of drums for lots of tonal variety.
Like all Gretsch Drums, these have 30-degree bearing edges which give them that characteristic Gretsch sound. Combined with the maple shells, you get a nice warm tone that still has a defined attack.
With a kick, snare, three rack toms and two floor toms, there’s a lot of potential in this drum kit. Thanks for watching – click the link below for more info and hi-res photos!
