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.
