Description

From the 1920s through the 1950s, the Gretsch flagship drum set was the legendary Broadkaster Series. It featured a thin, three-ply shell and produced what was to be, “That Great Gretsch Sound.” Today, in the Gretsch Drum Factory in Ridgeland, South Carolina, USA, with the help of advanced drum-making techniques, the Broadkaster has returned, bringing with it all of sonic brilliance of its namesake.

Broadkaster shells are made with a North American maple/poplar/maple formula. Each shell includes an interior-ply scarf joint that supplies added structural integrity to thin, musical shells. Like all USA-made Gretsch drums, shell interiors are finished with classic Gretsch Silver Sealer. The shell is hand finished with the exclusive reverse roundover bearing edge, which allows greater surface contact between the bearing edge and drumhead. The result is tone that is incredibly deep and warm.

The Shells

Broadkaster shells are 3 ply maple-poplar-maple. Each shell includes an interior ply scarf joint that supplies added structural integrity to thin, musical shells. Like all USA-made Gretsch drums, shell interiors are finished with classic Gretsch Silver Sealer.

The Bearing Edge

Bass drum & tom shells are hand finished with a reverse roundover bearing edge. This allows greater surface contact with the drumhead, resulting in a fatter, warmer tone. 

The Hoops

The toms are fitted with 302, double flanged steel hoops. These are similar to the original "stick chopper" hoops used in the 1950s, but are made from a heavier gauge steel. The thicker rims help to control overtones and to protect your sticks.

This kit contains

  • 22"x15" Bass Drum
  • 12"x8" Rack Tom
  • 16"x16" Floor Tom
  • x3 Floor Tom Legs

**Double tom stand not included**
