The Gretsch Catalina Maple Drum Shell Kit -- A Solid Upgrade

The Gretsch CM1E826 Catalina Maple drum shell kit features an innovative design that provides comfortable playability while keeping hardware longevity in mind. Each drum is built with Gretsch formula 7-ply maple wood along with Gretsch-designed hardware to yield an ergonomically friendly experience -- reducing performer fatigue and unnecessary hardware wear at the same time. This shell kit includes one kick drum, one snare drum, three rack toms, and two floor toms.

The Gretsch Catalina Maple Series

Gretsch's Catalina Maple series have become a popular choice among many drummers. Each 7-ply Gretsch-formula maple shell features 30-degree bearing edges for rounder, fuller sound. Maple drum shells balance low-end resonance with mids and highs. All drums are ready to rock and come fitted with Remo drum heads. If you're tired of hammering on a starter set and are in the market for something better, this Gretsch shell kit is a great upgrade.

Secure Mounting Hardware

Your Gretsch CM1E826 Catalina maple kit utilizes an ergonomic design that not only yields a comfortable feel, but also saves you in the long run on repairs and upkeep. The ball/socket 12.7mm L-arms for your rack toms offer a lot of room for positioning each tom and provide a secure hold for increased stability. Keeping your kick drum hoops looking nice are rubber isolators for the die-cast bass drum claws. All drums feature an attractive black/gold Catalina Maple round badge.

A Bigger Kit Boasts a More Dynamic Sound

Having three toms and an extra floor tom can really go a long way. Aside from looking cool, the extra set of rack toms allow for a wider tonal spread. This opens the door for playing in a greater number of genres and styles. If you're interested in getting a little weird, try putting one of the extra floor toms by the hi-hat and see what interesting fills this orientation can lay at your feet.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (16 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Gretsch Catalina Maples are the Bomb!"
Overall: First of all, let me say that ordering this kit from zZounds was a breeze and the payment plan is perfect for me. I ordered this kit (with the Walnut Glaze finish. Beautiful!) from them on a Friday and it arrived at my front door the next Tuesday afternoon. I had previously ordered this kit from another company because they were selling it for $100 less, but after waiting a month and a half with no sign it would ever show up, I finally wised up and ordered from these guys. As far as the drums themselves are concerned, I couldn't be happier! They look incredible but, more importantly, they sound even better. The tone off of the toms was great once I got the top and bottom heads tuned the way I like them and the bass drum is indescribably good. Such a magnificent, low "THUMP!" to it with very little effort. I just tuned it low, put a Kickport in the front (don't know that that was necessary, but it's what I did) and taped a 3"x5" patch of felt on the batter head to take a little of the resonance off and it sounds absolutely killer! I read a previous review that says the 8" tom is useless, but I disagree. It's more of an accent drum, but I've used it as part of the whole kit for 3 gigs now so far and have really enjoyed having that extra "color" to work with. The snare is very good, but possibly my least favorite part of the kit. I have been working on adjusting the head tensions on it though and have been happier since then, so perhaps I just need to put a little more work into it to get the sound that I want out of it. That's a small complaint though and, overall, I would say this kit from this company is a fantastic purchase. I am loving that great Gretsch sound and look forward to years of fun playing these babies!
Style of Music: Rock, country or whatever the gig calls for.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Gretsch Catalina Maple"
Sound: These drums sound AMAZING. I still have the stock heads on (except for the bass drum) and they still sound great! (Thanks Remo!) Warm tone, nice attack, LOUD. The toms are excellent! I was afraid of the rack toms having to high of a pitch (8",10", 12") but they are actually very warm and balanced. Tuned up a little they are very complimentary of each other. The 8" tom is great to use as an accent kind of drum, very distinct high tone, really fun to use. The bass drum is exceptionally good. I immediately put on a new bass drum head, a Remo Powerstroke Black Dot. The tone of this bass drum is just incredible. I put nothing inside the drum at first so I could hear the natural tone of the drum and I was blown away with the overall tone. Warm and punchy, just makes you feel good. A pillow I felt was too much muffling, killed a lot of the tone so I put in an Evans EQ pad for the batter and a felt strip on the reso just to dampen the overtones and cut the sustain a little but still have that amazing thud. Snare isn't my favorite, but I like it. Still have the stock head on that and haven't gave it a good tuning yet so definitely has potential to sound great. Feature: All maple shells, lacquer finish, great hardware. The tom holder in the bass drum even has an extra spot to add in a cymbal arm making it very easy to mount a splash or smaller china right between the to toms. Might seem small but I was pretty excited about it when I saw it. Bass drums hoops are wood and have matching finish. There's even a rubber grip pad on the bass drum hoop so you don't damage it with you pedal and it holds in place! I've never seen that pre-installed before! Sometimes it really is the little things! Ease of Use: Tunes really easy. Set up was pretty easy. Didn't take long to comfortably place and arrange everything. Quality: Everything seems to be high quality. Nothing has moved or slipped or fell out of place in any way since I've set it up. Very easy to adjust as well. If there's one thing I've always heard about Gretsch, it's the high quality of their instruments. This definitely holds up to that. Value: Great value for a 7-piece all maple kit. Similar price range to the PDP Concept maple series, but I've never liked PDP much. Manufacturer Support: Have not had to use. The Wow Factor: Every time I see this drum set it is visually stunning. The Silver Sparkle finish stands out beautifully. The chrome hardware compliments the finish beautifully. Overall: This is the best drum set I have ever owned. I've wanted a Gretsch for years but always settled for something else. Now I finally get to experience that "Great Gretsch Sound"!
