Gretsch kits are always beautiful!

A question: did you notice a great change by installing Gibraltar suspension mounts? Did sound quality and volume really increase?

I am planning myself to substitute old Yamaha tom mounts with suspension mounts on my Tamburo Original, but several people told me that sound and volume would not really change (if this question goes out of topic but you would like to answer, you can do it - in Italian - through my profile).

My babies..

Mid 80's Gretsch Customs in Burnt Orange Laquer. 20" kick, 8, 10, 12 toms in jazz/fast sizes. 16" floor w/ matching 5" snare. Found these on Fleabay for $900! That rules! BTW these rarely ever leave the house. Only if the gig pays more than $600 and I can be guaranteed these will be away from drunken patrons!







And these are my newest additions. The Gretsch Catalina Jazz mahogany's. Now these WILL leave the house for gigging! ;)

Sweet stuff tampagretsch. Are you sure that snare matching? The color looks a little off in the picture, maybe it's a camera trick. Anyway beautiful finish. I had the chance to play a kit very similar to yours a couple weeks back for a jazz festival and MAN did it sounds pretty.

Default Re: Let's see your Gretsch kits (saved the best for last!)

I'm looking into purchasing a Catalina Maple very soon, but I have a question: does the "Tobacco Fade Sunburst" finish look more like the picture on Gretsch's site (upper left), or is it a darker color? The reason I am asking this is because I have seen photos from owners (like those in the other 3 corners), and it looks a lot better in my opinion than on the Gretsch site.

Here's a little comparison:

So, what does it actually look like in person?

Thanks,
Dalton

Dalton, look at the pics of my kit at the top of the page. The Gretsch add shows a misleading color.

Here's my kit.

USA: 16x20 and 16x24 Kicks, 8x12 Rack, 14x16 and 16x18 Floor Toms, 6.5x14 20 Lug Snare.

Just got up from recording and they have a gorgeous tone, and sound very together. I could talk for days though, so I'll just post a few pics:







Enjoy! Thanks for your time.

Catalina Maple, Zildjian, Sabian, Pearl, Tama, Gilbraltar, etc.....

Love it! For the price tag, the Catalina Maple series is unbelievable.

you have a good eye! wow. The main kit is Catalina Maple and I was always missing the 8".

I found that one at a music store that was going out of business. It's an 8" Taye. Same finish, same floating mount, you have to get really close to see the difference.

That was sitting in the store on it's own and I just had to have it!

Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz taken the night I brought them home. They are certainly not the best kit ever made but they are just infinitely cool and priced well.

not a Gretsch Kit per se, but I got a hold of the fybreskyn 3 bass resonant and found a brodkaster type logo at a vintage drum fair late last year, and i've got to say I am in love with how it looks.
Whaddya think??

Hey Bram.
No the lugs on the Catalina series of drums are exclusive to that series.
The lugs on the Renown series are the same used on the USA custom series.

Terrible iPhone camera shot of my setup for a gig tonight...



I'll try to take some better ones tonight.

It's a Gretsch Renown 5-pc kit (only setup as 4-pc for this gig) in autumn burst. 10/12/14" toms, 18x22" kick. Using a 5x14" Acrolite Black Galaxy snare. Cymbals are 13" K hi-hats, 16" K Custom Dark Crash, 17" A Custom crash, and 20" A Custom ping ride.

Heads are Evans G2 clear on toms, Evans EMAD2 on kick, and Evans Genera Dry on snare.

I'm playing with an artist named Brant Christopher (http://www.myspace.com/brantchristopher)
