The new Catalina Maple series starts with the Gretsch maple formula shell. We carefully developed the maple shell specification to produce tones that explode with attack and volume and project a balanced amount of warm, low-end frequencies. All Catalina Maple shells are 7-ply, 7.2mm. We equipped the shells with "Gretsch Classic" features and hardware, including 30-degree bearing edges, fully-adjustable Gretsch ball-and-socket tom holder with 12.7mm tom arms, 9020-style mounting brackets and our famous 5-lug configuration (a standard Gretsch feature for over 50 years) for all 10" / 12" toms. All drums feature a multi-step lacquer process that produces an extremely glassy-smooth finish that is hard and durable. In addition, we partnered with Evans drum heads to produce a distinctive "Gretsch by Evans" batter and resonant head combination. Drums are easy to tune and produce full tones right out of the box. Bass Drum: 18" x 22" Mounted Toms: 8" x 10", 9" x 12" FREE 7" x 8" Floor Toms: 16" x 16" Snare: 6" x 14"
