And thanks to their mesmerizing white marine pearl finish, this Catalina Club really makes an entrance onstage or in a studio.

Mahogany shells give you great low-end thump

Gretsch's Catalina Club shells are built from seven plies of classic mahogany. What does that mean? Here's a refresher course on tonewoods: of the three most commonly used shell woods — mahogany, maple, and birch — mahogany is the softest. Softer woods tend to produce more bottom end, which really maximizes the nearfield response of the smaller shells when sitting behind this set. And just like Gretsch drums of antiquity, the Catalina Club sports 30-degree bearing edges for a decidedly dryer tone overall. If you're looking for a smaller kit with controlled overtones and satisfying low-end response, the Catalina Club is the shell pack for you.

Less is more

This Catalina Club's bass drum is only 14 inches deep. If you're accustomed to playing deeper kicks, you've been moving a lot of air — needlessly, some would say. You'll find that this kick's size really focuses your attack. With less air to move, you can be more fleet-footed and expressive with your parts. And expressiveness is what music's all about, right?

Be a part of Gretsch's American music legacy

The Catalina Club shell pack is a proud part of Gretsch's legacy in American music. Everyone knows about Gretsch electric guitars and drums, but did you know that Gretsch got its 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 modern American music. So when you play a Gretsch instrument, you're playing more than great shells; you're playing a piece of American music history.

Cymbals and stands not included.
