Gretsch USA Broadkaster Snare 14x5in, Anniversary Sparkle
Gretsch Broadkaster Standard Build Snare 14x5in, Anniversary Sparkle
From the 1920s through the 1950s, Gretsch flagship drum set was the legendary Broadkaster Series.
Broadkaster snares are available in two different hardware packages, standard and vintage. Standard package includes heavy-duty Gretsch lugs and spurs typical to Gretsch USA Custom and Brooklyn kits.
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.
