The Gretsch Catalina Maple series starts with the Gretsch maple formula shell. Gretsch 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. The shells are equipped 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 their famous 5-lug configuration (a standard Gretsch feature for over 50 years) for all 10 and 12 inch toms.
All drums feature a multi-step lacquer process that produces an extremely glassy-smooth finish that is hard and durable. In addition, Gretsch 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.
