My 6 piece Catalina Birch with maple snare at a recent job. I currently own 3 kits. A Slingerland 7 piece from 1981, the Cats from 2004, and a new Sonor Force 3007 kit configured the same as the Cats. The Catalina kit will be a tough act to follow with the new Sonors. Gretsch makes a great product and they build in that “Great Gretsch Sound” even in their Asian made kits. 100% satisfied with My Gretsch.

My new Gretsch Catalina Jazz in Marine White Pearl :

18X14
12X8
14X14
14X5

All originals heads who cames with the kit , I tuned it and the kit sounds amazing compared to my sonor force 1005. The bass drums is punchy but with enough presence , the toms sing with the low of mahogany (Oh my god i'm in love) and the snare is sensitive and have a nice crack to it. When I'll have some more money I'll buy some Ambassadors for all the toms and the snare.

My cymbals are :

Dreams Bliss III series :

18" Crash/Ride 1415 g
20" Crash/ride 1875 g

Masterwork Jazz series :

13" Hi-hat 860 g / 654 g

And a nice Istanbul Mehmet 15" thin crash

Very nice kit!!
And you wouldn`t really need new heads because those original heads which came with the kit are original Evans G1, the Evans equivalent to Remo`s Ambassadors.

Or do you wanna change them because of the sound differences between G1 and Ambassador?

Again, nice kit you got there...like all the other Gretsch sets, beautiful!

Well mine doesn't count yet, but...

Gretsch USA custom in green wrap, around 80s or 90s but not sure

5x14 9x12 10x13 16x16 16x22

Right now, just shells with holes. I have tension rods, screws, hoops, and heads, but I need to buy some Gretsch lugs from a shop in Chicago.

I saw those shells on ebay. that will be a great kit when you get it done.

I don't have a Gretsch kit but I have a couple of vintage Gretsch snares

they are on the bottom left. The white marine pearl one used to belong to my wife's grand father.
The other one is COB, weighs a ton and sounds great!

I am new to this forum!

Here is my Gretsch New Classic:









With my Pearl Firecracker:



It came with those Evans heads but I have since put a Remo Powerstroke 3 on the bass drum, a set of smooth Emporers on the toms (Evans G1 underneath) and a Coated Emporer on the snare. Sounds so good!

The cymbals are:

16" A Custom projection
15" A Custom
10" A Custom splash
13" A Mastersound hihats
20" K Heavy ride

The hardware is all DW 9000 apart from the pedals which are 5000s.

I currently have my eyes on a 13x7 New Classic snare in Nitron Glass to match the kit but I'm not sure I can afford more drum stuff.

Those new classics are beautiful drums. Really nice drums and setup! The firecracker matches pretty closely, too.

Love the New Classics man. That sparkle is to die for. Great find.
That photo with the vintage piano and wooden music stand is also classic.
I would have to re-shoot that photo and put it on the wall. Very cool.

Class A buddy, I found mine on Craigslist for 700.00 but was able to get them for 650.00. Total thievery I know. They sell for 1499.00 most places. I got four toms and bass, no snare, no hardware.

What are those Tosco hats like? A friend has a pair of the Italian made ones from waaaay back. They're really nice. I've wondered what the Sabian "Tosco's" sound like.

Cheers,

Outdated pics now, as I've got new heads on both kits (only the one up front is the Gretsch though) and figured out a better cymbal set-up. Anyway, here it is:
Gretsch Catalina Rock
26x16, 13x9, 16x16, 18x16 the snare is a 70s Ludwig Acrolite

well, in a word, awesome. They're light, groovy, and have a great wash to them when open, and a nice chick when closed. Great for jazz, probably not best for hard-hitters. I don't play jazz, but I'm a soft player and I like good response at low volumes, so these work great for me. I don't know how easy they are to find anymore though, I hear they've gone out of production again.

Mine was about double that, but that's because it was new. (I still can't figure out how gruntersdad got that steal of a deal!) I don't regret it at all, as this is a great deal for top quality professional drums. Make sure you get the tom arms and clamps that are supposed to come with the kit. They didn't have a set of matching tom arms, so I have 3 different brands. Great stock heads, amazing finish that is a subtle burst, and great quality hardware.

My old export 16"x16" floor tom weighed much much less than my new Renown 14x14 floor tom, just to give you an idea.

...I recognize Ed Belfour, and Johnny Bauer. Is that other picture Frank Mahovolich ?

I was going to make a joke about having your drums so close to that much leaf-ro-bilia might cause them to choke, but I am an Oiler fan, and have no reason to gloat.

Nice drums by the way.

I got lucky. The guy wanted 900.00. I was patient, waited 2 weeks, he went down to 700.00. When I went to meet him he was an hour late, so he took another 50.00 off. The drums went new from Guitar Center to his house, sat on the floor, never played, to my car. So in essence I got them new at a steal.

Interesting set up. Why the rototom and not the 14 inch floor tom?

05Ric you got one of the most interesting and unique setups I've ever seen. I watched the youtube video the drums sound really good (I really like your playing to). Your cymbal stacks sound great. Speaking of the cymbals you got any specs on them?

Hello all,

I'm new to this Forum but the Gretsch thread caught my eye. I have a few Gretsch kits and am a Gretsch NUT!
Here is my newest kit, a 2007 USA Custom in Millennium Maple in 10 12 14 6 22 that I will be taking out on tour this year with new Country/Pop Artist Shari Lynn, along with a Vineyard COB 5x14 snare drum.
Also at home are two '80's Gretsch kits, one being an '81 Rosewood 12 14 20 and a set from 1984 or so in 10 12 13 14 22 in Black Nitron wrap...among others!

Have a peek at:

Neil.

Wow 05Ric, what a cool setup! I'd love to get the chance to play those drums! Really cool stuff. That snare looks pretty killer. I don't understand the choice of the rototom over the floor tom, but whatever works for you. Again, awesome setup.

EDIT: Neil, just saw your drums. Just beautiful, I like your setups as well.
