The Gretsch Catalina Club Gloss Antique Burst 10” x 7” tom is a great addition to the Catalina Club shell pack. Ideal if you’re looking to give yourself more options and extend your range of tone.
Catalina Club 10” x 7” Tom
If you’re looking to turn your 4 piece kit into a 5 piece or want the ability to swap out your rack tom for a smaller size, the Catalina Club Gloss Antique Burst 10” x 7” tom is an ideal option. An obvious choice if you already own the Catalina Club Shell Pack in the same colour, but equally a great sound option if you’re wanting to create a jelly bean kit with mixed finishes.
Great Gretsch Sound
The Gretsch Catalina Club range was created to blend traditional configurations and classic tone from older drum kit models with contemporary forward-thinking hardware innovations. If you’re looking for a modern aesthetic but love traditional tone the Catalina Club range is an ideal option.
There’s a reason Gretsch is such a well-respected drum company. Not only has the brand stood the test of time with a wide range of extremely successful products, but they also continue to innovate; building on their tradition and experience to develop new and exciting drums.
In keeping with the build quality of the full kit shell packs, this 10” x 7” rack tom is constructed from 7 plies of 100% Mahogany. Mahogany is characterised by reduced highs, a smooth midrange and full luscious warm low-end tone. The result is a tom with a vibrant warm sound and full resonance. Ideal for a wide range of musical styles, Mahogany is great for those that want a full, well rounded tom tone.
The tom is finished off with 30 degree bearing edges, typical of traditional drum kits, further enhancing the characteristics of mahogany with added warmth for a rich, chunky sound.
In addition to the beautiful sounding classic mahogany shells, Gretsch have really put an emphasis on attention to detail with the Catalina Club hardware, creating a distinctive “New Gretsch” look.
The tom comes complete with a mini GTS tom mounting system that secures to the tension rods of the rack tom. This innovative system avoids contact with the drum shell and prevents drilling into the shell which can significantly reduce resonance. This means the shell can resonant freely to allow for improved sustain and tonal response.
This 10” Gretsch tom is also fitted with a reduced mass tom mount bracket, again to reduce interference with the shell resonance for a clearer, fuller tone. The tom is then topped off with 1.6mm triple-flanged hoops and Remo drumheads.
Stunningly Sleek Finish
The precise hardware detailing on this tom is complemented perfectly by the beautiful Gloss Antique Burst lacquered finish. The stunning finish features a darker shade towards the outer edge of the drum that tapers into a lighter maroon, red tone in the centre of the shell. The luscious red burst of colour is complemented perfectly with the shining chrome hardware for an overall look that will sit seamlessly into your Catalina Club kit set up. Finished off with the circular Gretsch Catalina vent badge, the Gloss Antique Burst Tom has an aesthetic that’s as warm as it’s tone.
If you already own a Catalina Club Gloss Antique Burst kit and want to add another tom to your set up this 10” x 7” tom is a no-brainer. Whether you want the option to switch out your 12” tom for a 10” tom maintaining your 4 piece setup or you want to go all out and extend your tone with a 5 piece kit, this tom gives you those options. Built to the same quality and standards as the full mahogany Gretsch Catalina kits, this tom will slot perfectly into your set up matching the rich, luscious tone you’ve come to expect from your drums.
