The new Gretsch Catalina Club series blends classic configurations and sound with sleek, contemporary hardware innovations. Catalina Club 4-piece configurations are built upon 14″ deep bass drums for vintage, punchy and warm tones.
New hardware components are showcased on this series and give a distinctive “new Gretsch” flair that pays homage to the Gretsch tradition while projecting a progressive personality.
The mounting hardware includes round “gas cap” bass drum mount plate, ultra low profile GTS mounting system, reduced-mass tom mount brackets and new single and double tom holders. Both tom holders include a post hole for a 7/8″ cymbal tube post (not included). The ball/socket 12.7mm L-arms provide positioning freedom and a secure hold for stability.
Gretsch T-Wing screws and bolts are included on all fittings for drummer friendly feel. To complete the balanced design aesthetic, a new black/silver Catalina Club round badge is included on all drums.
Proven and time-tested Catalina Club drum specifications represent a commitment to the continued “Great Gretsch Sound”. Mahogany shells include 30-degree bearing edges and natural shell interiors.
Bass drums include telescopic bass drum spurs and matching wood bass drum hoops. Toms and snare drums feature 1.6mm triple flanged hoops. All drums are fitted with Remo drum heads, including coated batters and clear resonant on toms/snare and clear bass drum batter head with muffle ring. The white Gretsch bass drum logo head includes muffle ring. Catalina Club is available in three configurations and eight finishes. Add-on drums are available.
