Best replacement heads for Gretsch Catalina Club Mod


New member
I have a Gretsch Catalina Club Mod. I think it's a great kit overall for the price. I'm currently thinking of upgrading the heads on the entire kit as I'm sure it'll definitely improve the sound. It currently has some half decent Evans Genera G1 coated heads on top and some cheap crappola no-name heads on the bottom. I'm thinking of replacing the top heads with Evans EC2's. I'm not sure what to use for the resonants yet.

What would you suggest for both top and resonant heads. Please note that this kit is Mahogany, and therefore substantially warm in sound. The drums sound fairly deep for their size as well.

Oh, by the way... I need suggesting for the bass drum batter as well.
