That yellow satin flame cat club has been calling my name. That thing looks great!I happened to be hanging out near somebody quasi-busking outdoors on a yellow flame Catalina Club kit over the weekend. Looked good and sounded like drums. Don't mean that to be glib - so many times, the live sound of drums is either "good" or "noticeably off" and a lot of that depends on the venue and soundperson(s), yeah?
Reminds me of seeing Vinnie at Yoshi's in Oakland a few years ago. Killer room with great sound. Have seen a number of great drummers in that room who sounded fantastic. For whatever reason, Vinnie's Gretsch kit sounded generic and awful that night. Too loud, way too much attack, no depth or musical tone to the drums. I'd shocked if they weren't pro-line Gretsch (USA custom, likely), so just remember YMMV when gigging.
