Watch it here! Gretsch Catalina Special Edition Bop Kit Sound Test/Demo 18/12/14/5.5x14

This is the 2020 Catalina Special Edition! The newest addition to Gretsch's Full Range family, this is the CS2 Catalina Special Edition Bop Kit in Walnut Burst Gloss. For this demo, we put Remo Coated Ambassadors on the tom batters and clear Ambassadors on the resos. On the bass drum batter, we put a Coated Ambassador, and and the reso, a Remo Fiberskyn Diplomat.

This configuration is:
18 x 14 Bass Drum
12 x 8 Tom
14 x 14 Floor Tom
5.5x14 Snare Drum

Features:
+7-Ply Walnut/Maple Hybrid Shell
+30º bearing edges
+Satin Wood Hoops & Hoop Clips on all Rack, Floor, and Snare Drums

Cymbals: 22" Istanbul Agop "Tony Williams" Ride, 20" Istanbul Agop 30th Anniversary Ride, 14" Zildjian Vintage Avedis Hi Hats
Gabe plays Vater Superjazz sticks.

We used two AKG C214 microphones as overheads, a Shure SM57 on the snare, a Shure SM57 on the hi-hats, and an AKG d112 on the bass drum.

Hope you enjoy!
