ProfileIn Memory of Bruce Gary ...
Perhaps best known for his work with the platinum selling band The Knack and the unforgettable Drum Beat of "My Sharona" which was Bruce's invention. However, this two-time Grammy nominee had a successful career apart from The Knack, as a performer, producer and recording artist. His body of work crossed all musical styles and genres.
Bruce recorded with The Doors' guitarist Robby Krieger, Cream's Jack Bruce, Bob Dylan, George Harrison, John Lee Hooker, Albert King, Albert Collins, Dr. John, The Ventures, Rod Stewart, Bette Midler, Love with Arthur Lee, Yoko Ono and many others.
Bruce toured with Albert Collins (1968-72), Dr. John (1976), Love (1976-78), Jack Bruce (1974-'88), The Knack ('78-'96), Bob Dylan (1981), The Ventures in Japan (1996), and Robby Krieger Band (1977-'91).

The Catalina Maple series starts with the Gretsch maple formula shell. We carefully developed the maple shell specification to produce tones that explode with attack and volume and project a balanced amount of warm, low-end frequencies. All Catalina Maple shells are 7-ply, 7.2mm.
The Catalina Maples are available in two configurations - a 6-piece shell pack set and a 5-piece shell pack set. Add-on drums are also available to allow for further drum set expansion.Read More
