I do have an older model by only about a year old. There is a model even older. The catalina elite. I still have the club. And I am not using the stock snare in that pic either. Um it's a Gretsch maple snare, but i dont know what it's called i can't find it online anywhere. As far as a tone in the bass drum I would say you get a broader tone as opposed to a short stocky tone. That make any sense?

Will do :) I should have the drums on Tuesday, and the hardware hopefully by Thursday. The hi-hat stand shipped from Music 123 but for some reason everything else is being shipped seperately and will probably leave tomorrow.

I'm just trying to decide if I short port the bass with a small hole or leave the head solid. Any ideas?

I think an unported head would suit you better if you wanted a softer, jazzier sound in the bass. But if you're playing rock-funk a la Galactic or the equivalent, you might consider a port.

Question though: What hardware have you purchased for the Catalina? Is it DW, or possibly Gibraltar? I know you had been considering flat-based stands, so I figured those would be the two best options.

I'd go with a hole.

What is a flat-based stand by the way?

They're also referred to as "flush base"

I bought two Gibraltar 8610 Flat Base Cymbal stands, two 8606 Flat Base Snare stands, and a DW 6500 Flat Base Hi-hat stand.

I bought them through Music 123 as I think I mentioned. The total was $473, but I also bought a DW Delta 3 Nylon Strap Bass Pedal. The DW Hi-hat was $107, the Gibraltar Snare Stands were I think $57 each and the Gibraltar Cymbal Stands were $45 each.
