wow, you have got a great little setup there!

how does the bass drum sound? does it work for anything besides jazz?
would it work for a Rock/Punk sound?

i asked in the other new thread with one of these
kits in it, so i thought i'd ask again. nothing wrong with getting opinions.

ive been looking into getting one of these to gig with in my band.

Sweet sweet setup, looks plenty fun. I have but one request: free the toms! Ditch those rem-o's. You'll be glad you did.

Te name "club jazz" is only a name Gretsch gave this config. I had 'em out for the first time this evening for a rehearsal..They sound AWESOME!!! I love this kit and may just look into a club mod as well! The K custom sessions 18" ride is dark with just enough wash, awesome sticking and a great bell! I play CCM and Power funk with these cymbals/kit. I can't say enough about Gretsch! I don't do jazz..Like it just not my playing style.

Very, very, very nice kit man! Keep up the good work! Is it just me, or is Gretsch the most popular kit on these boards?

Thanks to all for the comments! These drums are a real surprise! I'm on my way to purchasing a club mod very soon! I like the tatoo finish! Gretsch drums are indeed very popular! I'm sold!

Yeah, I've found that natural wood finishes really appeal to me. That is a natural finish right? Like a really light one?

hi
i`m from germany. i`ve got the gretsch catalina jazz in satin natural, too. you`re right, it`s awesome.
how different does the bass sound with a hole? did you buy a new bass drum lifter because the one that was in the package isn`t that good because it`s so tiny!
how much did you pay for it?
