Sixth Generation Gretsch Family Member, Calvin "Rane" Gretsch to visit Gretsch Japan Dealers
Sixth generation Gretsch family member, Calvin "Rane" Gretsch, will be traveling to Japan this month to meet and greet customers during a visit to Gretsch Guitar and Drum dealers.
Rane will be accompanied by well known guitar & pickup manufacturer, TV Jones as they tour throughout Japan. Some of the younger musicians may find it very interesting to meet a member of their generation within a company that has been in business for over 125 years.
Rane will be autographing a special Gretsch family photo at each store featuring members of the fourth, fifth, and sixth generations.

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
