Gretsch Drums Catalina Club Jazz Drum Set
Gretsch makes some of the best sounding drums for the studio. While they sound great live, they sound especially good through mics which is important because drummers are usually buying their mid-level kits to start recording with them. The shells are made of birch so they are a little stronger sounding than the Catalina Maples. However, they do still have the warmth that Gretsch’s Catalina drums are known for.
The tom mounts are some of the best around and really allow the toms to speak. The finishes are quite beautiful and feature a matching wooden bass drum hoop. Gretsch uses finishes that recreate that classic look. There are several different configurations and colors to choose from, and add-on drums are available. While Gretsch drums have always been the preferred sound for jazz drummers, these drums in particular blend in well with most styles of music. While on higher end of the mid-level price range, this kit is well worth the investment!
