Default my catalina club jazz

so i know everyone has probably seen enough of these kits already.
but i just had to put mine up.

its a catalina club jazz that i purchased about maybe 6 months ago.
sizes are 12x8 tom, 14x14 floor, 18x14 bass, and 5x14 snare.

ive been trying to take pics for a long time.
and i finally got a hold of a camera at a recent gig.
so here it is.

Beautiful!

The more I see these Catalina Jazz kits, the more I want one! And the price is very reasonable...

Plus it would look great in the living room next to the piano. Of course I'd have to get rid of the couch, but, hey, the Cat is prettier than my furniture...

How do you like it so far? Does it have a warm "vintage" sound?

Sweet kits arent they?? I just got one myself! Awesome sound! Trying different heads on mine (Evans EC2s) so far the stock coated G1s sound the best!
I'm using mine for gigging..I'm not a jazzer...my little kit rocks! Very nice bro! Love the Ks!
*check out the pix I have up of mine...

for the price i think theyre an awesome deal.
with the stock heads
which are coated G1s
it has a really good, warm sound.

after i wear these out i want to buy some remo fiberskyns.

again, awesome little kit you've got
with the right beater it would have a decent punch.
right now im switched out the stock head for a evans hydraulic.
tuned right they both have a really good sound.
the hydraulic would be more suitable for DnB kinda stuff.

as for rock concerts ive never used them for that kind of gig yet,
but ive heard my friends and when micd it sounded really good.

I was like 1 minute away from buying this set two years ago, but i decided to go with bonzo sized tamas. I don't neccesarily regret my decision, but i would definately love to have one of these kits,

Yes, really valuable drums for the price!! They worked for me when I checked out those...I really like the sound of the toms. They have huge percussive and tonal qualities!

Well made drums, congrats!

Karl

I'll add mine in...





Red sparkle.

Been enjoying the set for a while now, a heck of a lot of kit for not much money.

Cymbals are Traditionals - 13" hats; 22" extra light ride; 20" medium thin ride; 18" thin crash and instead of the pictured 16" crash I've been using a 22" swish.

So much fun to play.

i actually stole an old hydraulic from my school.
it sounds pretty good when tuned low or relatively high.
it didnt have enough sustain for my taste when i was palying jazz so i put the stock head back on.

im planning on buying either coated or clear g1 or ambassador to replace it.

chonson and yamahammer very nice finishes and cymbals.

i wish they had the natural finsih when i bought mine.
but i still love my white marine.

are you both using the riser?
i didnt really care for mine
it chewed upmy hoop and made the beater hit at a larger angle.
but i want to hear your experience.

Yes -- using the riser here. I've actually been using it on the Gretsch and one other kit, so I've had some time to get used to the weirdness it kind of fosters. Definitely have to change the beater angle, and I actuallly switched beaters -- instead of the pictured DW beater, I'm using the Vater Vintage Bomber beater, which a) sounds better, b) is more rounded so has less of a "right" way to hit.

No problems with the hoop getting chewed up. Make sure the counterscrew is not protruding below the pad that makes contact with the hoop.

Sorry for the late reply..but yeah, I'm using my riser as well..I have an ultra adjustable Pearl Eliminator pedal and I am getting closer to the weirdness factor of the pedal angle.
I may look into an aftermarket riser..one that has the kick clamp 'tongue' in a more natural, perpendicular to the hoop position..I'll letcha know if I find something.. Peace
