Gretsch Catalina Maple Fusion 22"
I have been using the Gretsch Catalina Maple series for about 4 months and I am blown away. The finish on the drums is astounding, and the Maple hoops on the bass drum add another coat to it. The triple flange hoops and hideaway bass drum lugs make this seem like a fortress. I have used Pearl Exports, OCDP Newports and DW drum kits, and the configuration and tone of this kit was my favorite.

The snare is an added treat, as it is very deep, giving it good resonance and attack. I changed to a Remo Black Suede head and a Puresound 30 strand snare wire, and I will never need or want a new snare. You can a tight, focused attack out of it, or I use it for the dark, deep resonance used in more melodic songs.

The 10” tom was a little hard to get used to at first, but when transitioned off of it onto the 12” tom, the duo sound amazing. I use Evans EC2 coated heads on both of the toms, and they sound great. The 10” can be down tuned to get a deeper sound than what it starts off with. The 12” I keep tuned in a mid range and it sounds great for the style of music I play. The drum mounting system also takes some getting used to, as it is a ball hinge sort of deal. The dual floor toms make the set look like a beast. They add a dark clarity to the set if that’s what you use them for. The legs have yet to come loose on me, which on my earlier sets I had that problem. The 16” is very deep and melodic, while the 14” is more punchy.

My absolute favorite part of the drum set is the Kick drum. The kick has an amazing tone and has a lot of deep growl, even with the stock heads. I use an Aquarian Superkick 2 on mine and it makes this the absolute must have drum. It sounds far better than almost all other bass drums I have heard. This kick is a cannon, and sounds amazing whether playing Blaze or Break beats.

Over all, I would say that this kit is the best deal I’ve stumbled across in a long time. I would definitely buy this kit again if I had the option.

Gretsch Catalina Maple Fusion 22"
I use it for less than a week

-On Photo, the color "amber" not like me too much but the outgoing cartons, pleasantly surprised. The maple veins are prominent and make each drumkit and the color is less ple as trade pictures Gretsch.

-COT His bass drum is perfect (a falam is not too much to add some attack), deep hyper / Snare rather nice / For toms 10 and 12 bp, but not those 14 and 16 are much harder grant, the fault probably to downright moldy skins are sold with drumkit / Hardware rather basic but reliable.

-I Tried some other batteries in the same price but in maple with 2 low toms and this is the only.

-Report QualitPrix unbeatable.

-I Think that if I can one day pay me I will do better but I'm quiet for a moment because it 'kit is very versatile thanks to 4 toms.

Gretsch Catalina Maple Fusion 22"
Drummer for 10 years, I use it for 5 years, config: 08,10,12,14,16,22 + DC, I had a Pearl Forum ago I tried a few models in this range of other brands, my choice is focused on Catalina Maple, well I would do without hesitation that choice !!! It is true that we must change the skins, like many drumkit at this price, it's normal, but then it's really great! Low toms require a little more adjustment if you do not change the plugs, but the result is after stunning, plus she is very pretty live in the spotlight! I found even the 7th was in 08 ", which makes a very coherent set! A highly recommended!

Gretsch Catalina Maple Fusion 22"
I use it since 2009

drummer for 24 years, therefore forcing many Model Explorer

6 config and maple drums (can proposed)
tobacco superb finish

the least
the skins are a change right away, I put personal evans ec2 for toms, bass drum for emad with a small evangelical 4 "on the original resonant snare and evans genera dry.
toms bass are not easy to adjust

The value for money is great you just have to budget for the purchase of additional hardware and skins
I am surprised that someone mentioned the choice of rods to obtain the desired sound is a very good reflection because drummers can think of

I would do without this choice eSite
