Look sharp? It's a done-deal!
Look sharp? It's a done-deal!

Look sharp, you say? That's a done-deal if you're sitting behind this little monster.

Gretsch's new Catalina Club "Black Widow" Mini Mod groove kit is a whole lotta drums for a whole little space. This petite powerhouse features a Satin Midnight Black lacquer finish embellished by a blood-red stripe overlap -- the same combination on the back of a Black Widow Spider.

Other Mini Mod notable features include mahogany shells with 30-degree bearing edges and natural finish interior, and Evans G1 batter heads. The drum dimensions are as follows: 20 x 20 bass drum, 8 x 12 tom, 12 x 14 floor tom, and 6 x 13 snare.

The Black Widow Mini Mod groove set carries a retail list price of $999, which doesn't sting at all.
