Wow! That lacquered Oyster finish has my vote! That, plus I'm very familiar with the Starclassic line and the craftsmanship has always been first rate! As to the Gretsch kit in question, I'm just not a fan of wood counterhoops.

Two different Price categories; I assume you included the Gretsch because something, about them you like.... which is ok..

They are nice looking and great sounding drums but I would be lying to say the price isn’t a consideration. I could get the Gretsch and a nice snare. I like the Tama’s more but would be happy With either.

I'm sure you'll make the right decision.

Apples and oranges really. In my view, the Starclassic Performer is a pro line of drums, and the Catalina line is a budget line.

That is a very different kit comparison. Maybe the Tama's vs Renowns?

I did it again and bought neither. I got the Tama S.L.P big black steel kit and the matching snare. Last time I debated which kit I wanted it was between the big black steel and Dynamic Kapur. I wound up getting a Superstar classic lacebark pine and a Sakae cherry mahogany. Anyhow pictures coming when it arrives.

Congrats!

With so many choices out there, it's really tough to pick out equipment these days. It was much simpler BITD. I've been looking for my next kit for awhile now, and it isn't easy.
