Gretsch USA Broadkaster 3 Piece Vintage Shell Pack, Anniversary Sparkle

From the 1920s through the 1950s, Gretsch flagship drum set was the legendary Broadkaster Series.

Drums Sizes 18x14in, 12x8in, 14x14in

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 warmth. Please note: shell pack only, stand hardware and cymbals are not included.
