Product Description

Full Description

A sound for the ages

The Gretsch Catalina maple embodies the same 'great Gretsch sound' that has become the go-to sound for so many esteemed drummers throughout history. Max Roach, Art Blakey, Phil Collins, Taylor Hawkins - the list goes on. Now you can take to the stage and become part of that family, with the Gretsch Catalina Maple 22'' 7pc Shell Pack.

What defines 'That Great Gretsch Sound'?

Maple shells. Maple is known for its enhanced low-frequency sound and wide tuning range, making it great for a wide range of applications. The Catalina maple features a special maple shell blend to produce the ideal low - mid frequency warmth and resonance. That classic sound is enhanced by vintage 30-degree bearing edges. This bearing edge has been in use since the 1930's and features a round-over profile that's thicker than the typical bearing edge, giving you greater drumhead contact with the shell. The result - a punchier, rounder tone with more focused resonance.

Gretsch formula maple shells explained

Gretsch formula shells are a unique combination of North American maple with another, softer maple species. When combined, the woods provide a stunning tonal balance with a beautiful warmth and resonance. The 7-ply construction of the Catalina Maple drums further enhances the tone, whilst offering an extremely powerful projection, letting the drums shine through any mix or recording. The high-quality maple shells are complemented by durable chrome hardware, contributing towards shell rigidity and strength without compromising looks or aesthetics.
