Gretsch Drums has added two new colors to their lineup of Catalina Club Jazz Shell Pack Drumsets, both of which are a limited production run and by the looks of them, neither will last long in on the showroom floor. Both the Silver Oyster Pearl Catalina Club Jazz (which has some resemblance to a Ringo finish but not as “black” in color) and the Emerald Green Pearl Catalina Club Jazz look even more stunning in person than in the pictures. Both Shell Packs have the same four sizes as the regularly produced colors of Natural, White Pearl and Red Rustic Pearl…14×18 Bass Drum with an attachable riser and single tom-tom holder, 8×12 Mounted Tom, 14×14 Floor Tom and a 5×14 matching snare drum.
According to Gretsch Drums, only 65 of the Silver Oyster Pearl finish were made and 140 of the Emerald Green Pearl color. Unlike other years where a special Limited Reserve finish was made offered at the end of a calendar year and then offered as a stock finish the following year, Gretsch Drums is claiming that these two finishes will not be produced after this initial reserve quantity is sold out.
