Gretsch Catalina Club and Renown Maple Drums

The Gretsch drum company’s history is synonymous with jazz and many of the music’s greatest drummers, including Art Blakey, Max Roach, Elvin Jones and Tony Williams have played Gretsch kits, while today Vinnie Colaiuta is among the company’s leading endorsees. Now distributed by the giant Fender corporation, Gretsch are rolling out a big push on the UK market, focusing on its lower priced ranges, particularly the newly updated Catalina Club and Renown Maple ranges. With prices ranging from £500-700 the Catalina Club is terrific value with 7ply mahogany shells, lacquer or wrapped finishes, four shell pack configurations, from 18in bass drum jazz sets to 24in bass rock monsters, shorter tom depth options, suspended mounts and Evans heads. The Renown Maple range, inspired by Gretsch’s admired USA Custom range and featuring 6ply Rock maple shells with die cast hoops and Evans heads, is also re-styled for 2010 offering shorter, more traditional depths tom sizes, four shell pack configurations, four very sellable new finishes and prices up to £1200.
