Please help me choose!! Gretsch vs Ludwig??


New member
I am going to buy a new drum set, I think I have setlled on a Gretsch Catalina Maple but I am also interested in either the Gretsch Club Rock or the Ludwig Zep Set, which are similar with their 26" bass drum. I cant decide, i realize the Gretsch is probably more versatile, but I like to play hard so I think the bigger louder Ludwig or Gretsch club rock might be more my style! Just wondering if anyone else has an opinion on this! Thanks!

def. get the Gretsch, the catalina maple will be plenty big with those fusion sizes, just ask howepirate. he plays all kinds of metal with his fusion m birch and has no problems.
