The Gretsch Catalina Birch embodies the same 'great Gretsch sound' that has become the go-to sound for so many esteemed drummers throughout history. Max Roach, Art Blakey, Phil Collins, Taylor Hawkins — the list goes on. Now you can take to the stage and become part of that family of greats with the Gretsch Catalina Birch 22'' US Fusion 5pc Shell Pack.
The Gretsch Catalina Birch 22'' US Fusion 5pc Shell Pack features birch shells that provide a balance of rich, low frequency tones and high-frequency brightness. It's ideal for studio and stage use. That classic sound is enhanced by vintage 30-degree bearing edges. This bearing edge has been in use since the 1930s and features a round-over profile that's thicker than the typical bearing edge, giving you greater drumhead contact with the shell. The result - a punchier, rounder tone with more focused resonance.
