The drums of Gretsch's Catalina Club Rock shell pack sport mahogany shells. What does that mean? Here's a handy Sweetwater refresher course on shell tonewoods: of the three most commonly used â€” mahogany, maple, and birch â€” mahogany is the softest. Softer woods produce more bottom end, while the harder ones (birch, for example) emphasize higher-pitched tones. If you like lots of satisfying, organic low-end punch, the Catalina Club Rock shell pack is for you.
The Catalina Club Rock shell pack is a proud part of Gretsch's legacy in American music. Everyone knows about Gretsch electric guitars and drums, but did you know that Gretsch got its start in 1883 as a banjo company? It wasn't long before Gretsch was making mandolins, ukuleles, and eventually flat-top guitars, contributing to the very roots of modern American music. So when you play a Gretsch instrument, you're playing more than great shells; you're playing a piece of American music history.
