Road Testing - Gretsch Catalina 22 Fusion

Posted by Mick Common on 24th October 2011

Great Sound.. Great Gretsch.

Today Wez (one of Drum Shop UK’s finest) came down to road test a Gretsch Catalina Club on the Grestch Stage here at our New Showroom in Washington, Tyne and Wear. Yep, what a great sound came out of that drum kit after Wez set it up. He also added some Istanbul Traditional cymbals. The place was a rockin’... There was a moment when some hooded guy ran onto the stage with an LP cajon which he grabbed from our Brand New LP section (which I might add is the largest in Europe – FACT).

Having played the Gretsch Catalina Wez told me that he was very impressed with it’s sound and feel.

“It made we want to really rock out – Maaaaaan!!” – Wez
With its all mahogany shells this drum kit is very durable along with its red sparkle wrap it is a warm sounding drum kit with a lot of edge and power.

Everything is starting to come into place here at the New Drum Shop UK warehouse/showroom.

If you want to come and road test a drum kit… Maybe even write us a review? Call Us Now 0191 4950201
