OK, so my cymbal addiction may seem a little apparent here, and I do own two virtually identical Gretsch Catalina Maple kits, but truly I have a good purpose.

Smaller kit is my daughter's kit and I use it for band practice at my house.
18x22 bass
6 1/2x14 snare
2 8x10 toms
2 14x14 floor toms
Zildjian Platinums (circa 1986)
20" rock ride
19" rock crash
18" rock crash
18" med crash
17" rock crash
16" rock crash
16" thin crash
14" new beats
14" quick beats
12" splash
18" china high

Larger kit is my road or gigging kit
18x22 bass
8x14 Ludwig Coliseum Snare (circa 1984)
3 9x12 toms
2 16x16 floor toms
Zildjian A
21" rock ride
20" hev crash
20" med crash
20" med thin crash
19" med crash
18" med crash
18" rock crash
16" med crash
20" china high
12" splash
14" new beats
Zildjian K
18" Dark
Sabian Paragon
20"
18"
16"
Sabian AA
19" med crash
18" rock crash
14" hi hats


I know I have a problem and my wife and drum tech say that admitting the problem, only makes it worse!!!!

^^^ Nice! I love the Catalina Maples!

I'm sure you have had this question posed before...
Why (3) 12" rack toms and (2) 16" floors??

The only reason I can see is because you can....??

Cute pic of your daughter?,, but she may do better with a Hello Kitty kit..for now..assuming that is the daughter who owns the other Cat Maple...?

To answer question 1. Why 3 rack toms and 2 floor toms of the same size? Elementary my dear Watson. I like the tone, pitch, and size of the drum, then I tune all three to different pitches. Same for the Floor toms. What I get at the end is a symetrical looking kit tuned to the pitches I like and in the sizes I like. I really don't care for toms going from tiny to massive, unless I had about 8 or more! Then I would want the 8x7, 8x10, 9x12, 10x13, 12x14, 14x14, 15x15, 16x16, 18x18 etc... Does that make sense? The bottom line, I love the tone I can get out of the 9x12s and 16x16s. If I could design my own kit I would go old school metal sizes 8x8, 9x9, 10x10, 12x12, 13x13, 14x14, 15x15, 16x16, 18x18. I think deeper lengths really bring out the tone well.

To answer question 2. I call it her kit, I am "encouraging her" to become a drummer by calling them hers and letting her play them when she wants to. I don't ram it down her throat or tell her to practice (she is only 4) I just play a little, then she wants to, and she likes to show off to her friends and family. She isn't to the stage of developing a rythmic pulse yet, but she is getting familiar with the drums. I hope someday she will make me look like an amateur. Her mom is teaching her piano.....

That is sooo freagn classy!!! Is that a WMP, or an Aged White Marine Pearl? I have the Pro M VCP, and I just love pearl finishes every time I see them. Best kit (finish, sizes, lugs, GRETSCH) I've seen in a while. I'd love to have a Gretsch kt some day. Enough rambling. Enjoy your kit and please post more pic-tupela

Thanks guys! I'm a bit more than excited.....tupela, that finish is called ivory marine pearl. I tried a gold sparkle in a fusion configuration at a local guitar center. The drums sounded so good. The gold sparkle is a nice finish but the imp just really caught my eye. I didn't purchase the snare....yet. I wanted to try the set with the snare I use the most lately, it's a 69 Ludwig acrolite that I like alot. Maybe get the snare in the same finish later.

I have 5 snares. Gretsch Catalina, my Keller piccolo, a Taye Maple, a PDP brass, and the Vaughncraft Steam bent. It has to be the best and my favorite. It can be very loud, great tuning range, and can be sensitive as well.

You have to many snares! Haven't you heard about the four snare law that was passed in 2007? You have to give me one! Pick one and send it to me!

No, those with too many snares must give to the less fortunate, which includes me. I am musicially disadvantaged and need a steambent snare.

No, Under Stimulus Package guidelines you will receive enough cash to buy a snare drum head. (Not an entire drum!) That will be a sufficient amount of cash to restart the economy. You can trade in an old snare drum for a 20% tax credit, But the trade in snare must be crushed and it can't be resold!

I decided to go for Gretsch Catalina Maple instead of TAMA Starclassic B/B,
I know they are two different level drums but I love the sound of Maple compare to Birch Bubinga. and also the price was much cheaper, so I don't see the point of not getting Gretsch! the kit arrived yesterday and I set it up, test the sound and everything is perfect!

here's my new config. Got sick of lugging the whole kit around and setting up and packing down, so bought the DW bass drum convertor and used me 16 as the bass, 13 and 12 as hanging toms, and the 13 converted tom to snare as me snare.
In the new band the 16 wasn't cutting thru, so voila! a dinky double bass kit. Use the 16 for accents now, while i buildup the left foot!
So.
Much.
Fun!

Hope you enjoy:

how does everyone think a 7x10 tom would sound instead of the standard 8x12??...
i want to get a Catalina Gretsch club Jazz kit,but i am so used to using a 7x10 mounted tom.

Would it be used with a 14 x 14? If so I think that would be a good interval.

I got a new gretsch snare. 14x5 chrome over brass gretsch new classic limited. I believe only 200 of these were made. This is only my 2nd ever 8 lug snare, and I don't mind at all though, the die cast hoops make it a breeze to play. I played it against at least 10 other snares and this was my favorite. (except for an ocheltree solid steel machined snare that cost more than my whole kit). I really do like the sound of this drum, chrome over brass has this great dry crack if you hit it dead center that sits so nicely in a mix. very musical. It took a weekend to get used to the hoops being higher than my other snares though.

here is two other newer pics of my 70's gretsch kit 24, 13, 16.


here is an overhead picture with my a customs, i can't tell if the ride and the crash are accidentally switched or not? the crash looks really big. I use my a customs for outside gigs, and my k dark custom for inside gigs or quieter gigs.

A few changes with my Gretsch Renown Purewood African Mahogany (whew) kit since I posted a year or so ago:

With my new Gretsch Rug

You can see my new Tama Starclassic 8x14 snare in the mix in 2nd photo - it's not a Gretsch, but it is one nice drum!

And Daisy our Golden Retriever guarding my 1616 tom (wake up Daisy). This is not a new addition I just thought it was a nice photo showing the drum's finish.

This is my new Gretsch 1949 Parade snare I bought 2 days ago on eBay - seller's photo. I should have it near the end of the month. Couldn't resist - 49 is my birth year and it's a Renown Mahogany too I think.

I finally decided on Gretsch, ordered the New Classic Bop kit today. I'll post real pics once I have them but the picture below is what I ordered...just the shells. I can't wait to get my hands on these!
Wow! You will not be disappointed - these are Great drums so I've heard from everyone that's played them - and they are so nice to look at - congrats buddy!

Thanks KONA,

Originally, I ordered and received a Deep Inca Gold Sparkle kit, but it was damaged so I had to exchange for silver because that's all that was left. I'm happy with the color though.

Well, I thought its about time I posted some pics on with my newish catalina jazz kit.
This one was from in the studio, recording an album with 'Kellys Tattoo'


this one was when I went busking for 'Help for Heros' with the Motorbike club I belong to.

And this is my little boy, showing us all how it should be done. He's gonna be a star when he gets older


I'll get some propper photo's at some point.

Well - it's not part of my Gretsch kit ..........yet, but....

I just got this in the mail today (bought it on eBay a few days ago).

It's in great shape for a 60 year old drum - better than me - lol
I'm surprised at how light it is..a few pounds.

I will have to be very carefull cleaning this 1949 Gretsch Renown Mahogany Parade drum - I don't want it to fall apart on me.



Here it's resting beside some 23 yr old coke (I drank all the 60 yr old stuff last week). Steve Gadd & Carl Palmer autographed drumsticks for some inspiration. I ripped through some rudiments and it sounds not too bad.

Hey fellow Gretsch owners...the New Classic Bop kit finally arrived! Whoopee! After drooling over all the nice Gretsch kits in this thread I can finally post some pics of my own. I thought I posted this a few minutes ago but seems like it didn't take so I'll try again. This is such a nice little kit...loads of sound from something so small. Still fussing with the tuning and setup but isn't that half the fun??

Man - BigSteve - that is one beautiful drum kit!!
Congratulations on your choice - that is one of the nicest looking kits I've ever seen - great photo job too by the way.

Happy drumming to you!
