    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.

    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!

    I use it since 2009

    drummer for 24 years, therefore forcing many Model Explorer

    most
    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

    - How long have you use it?
    For more than three mois.Je uses the config 22 * ​​18 10 * 08 12 * 09 14 * 14 16 * 16.

    - What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    Minimum: the skins that come with are pretty blah, change quickly, but it may hold for some months, and more when you put good skin that changes the drumkit and become gniale.
    Plus: The finish is pretty trs, the suspension of toms and bass drum that was taped to each seat blow bat.

    It took me Evans G2 coated and kill, sounds serious, but his deep even when it is dry and not sustain MODR but it is not because Dranga trs musical ( Saddle 6-ply requires ...) The floor toms are pretty hard to give beginners (especially the 14 ') probably because they are too deep and should be a little gaffer. The bass drum up in AQUARIAN kickII is super impressive, very serious, with lots of attack (by putting a patch piti ^ ^). Possdant a pearl chad smith signature I used the snare drum in that snare secondary, it is not sublime, but may well do the trick RULES.

    - Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    I test the Yamaha Stage Custom pearl export and it is well below ...

    - How do you report qualitprix?
    Trs qualitprix good value, a drumkit 6 was all in Saddle for less than 1000 euros, yen is not as a. ..

    - With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
    Yes budgat with a gal, but if there are more souxsoux must go to Pearl or Tama Starclassic session masters or even, or if your rich you really bah we go for the drumkit to measure ...

    I put 9 because it is a good drumkit trs for this award.

    How long have you use it?

    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    Trs of beautiful finishes and a great look, not always visible in catalogs or on websites, and see in real life!
    its level, nothing wrong, I have not yet changed the skins but the agreements, the toms are really powerful and the possibilities are numerous tuning.
    The bass drum sound really deep and at the same time slamming trs, also the possibility of tuning are quite varied.
    Cons: the skins provided are changing pretty quickly I think, within a month or two for me. The tuning of the floor tom is not simpler.

    Nothing wrong, by 100% the price the extra Saddle!

    I have a jazz trio, a rock band, a collective of experimental and improvised music, and I accompany the song acoustic / folk.

    I mounted the catalina Evans G2 skins and Evans Emad bass drum in no event for the resonant and without blanket or pillow inside. (I removed the bindings toms on the bass drum for a personal choice of placement tom 12 "snare up, creating a vent" natural ")

    I said that I did not take the snare or the tom 10 "in order to change the skins to make the purchase and covers keeping the same budget.

    I said that I did not take the snare or the tom 10 "in order to change the skins to make the purchase and covers keeping the same budget.
    The drums fit beautifully in all configs. The bass has a very good attack and very low in config Rock (so relaxed) is very impressive and has a nice note and a superb round in config Jazz (with skins stretched over ...). Jazz in config it blends beautifully with the sounds of toms.

    Drums agree easily by taking the time to do this properly, the tom 16 "needs to be high enough on its feet for the bass bloom (watch beautiful bass rockers advisories)
    The tom 12 "needs to be free to ring (the attachments fall toms come with perfectly) (if you use up snare remember not to tighten the circle with the foot snare ...)

    In rock so we found the attack and the depth (I'm not a big hitter so I woodcutter does not do me the choice of skins) and Jazz found a great round and some great notes on all drums, singing a delight ... ;)

    The musicians are enjoying and sound recordists are impressed.

    A WONDER! (Maple ...)


    - Have you tried many other models before buying it?

    I asked to invest in high-end gretsch or in the DW and wait for my cymbals and percussion, but on the way to the Catalina n'me I'm not mistaken ...
    So I tried the DW, the Tama (Superstar), the Gretsch (catalina club, renown), the Mapex, Sonor and (2007 and 3007).
    - How would you rate the quality / price?

    As you understand, beyond any comparison, there is no connection ...

    - With experience, you do again this choice?

    Yeah!
    I play the drums for the past 15 years, 4 years and semi-professional.
    This kit is beyond my expectations, I am amazed that the distributors have not raised the price ...

    I use this drumkit for about a year .. Catalina mapple in a config 20,10,12,14,16.

    As stated by most of those who issue an opinion on this drumkit, I think it benefits a value unbeatable.

    But happiness ... Obviously, I do not compare with my "Recording Custom" from Yamaha ... not the same wood, not the same budget.

    I have however added a few mods to get the sound I like:
    First, an urgent: change skins, all skins. You decide what's best for you, depending on your style. Also, I read here and there that many of you have some problems to get to be satisfied with the sound of their floor toms, 14 or 16 inch .... I had the same concern, too little sustain, sound a little "box".

    Ehbin guess what? There's something foolproof, it will cost twenty euros ... you transfer the tiny black plastic caps on the feet of your toms, and you replace them with ones you can buy in Pearl, largest and "written off". Believe me, your toms will not be the same and you will be delighted with the results. This is truly the day and night!

    In short, you have a tight budget, but you are looking for a drumkit of maple that is well done, nice looking and sounding? then treat yourself to the Catalina Mapple!
