Shane Says

“DCP was influential in the prototyping of the Gretsch Broadkaster, when Tony and I visited the folks at Gretsch and discussed the possibility of a relaunch of the classic line. When I played the prototype I was ecstatic. The classic Gretsch Drum sound is completely embodied in these drums and now the 3 ply enthusiasts don't need to worry about trying to get heads on them!“

Product Description

From the 1920s through the 1950s, Gretsch flagship drum set was the legendary Broadkaster Series. The thin, three-ply shell produced that original "Great Gretsch Sound". Drum Center of Portsmouth was influential in the prototyping of the Gretsch Broadkaster, when we visited the folks at Gretsch and discussed the possibility of a relaunch of the classic line. These new classic Broadkaster shells are made with a North American maple/poplar/maple formula. Each 6.7mm shell includes an interior-ply scarf joint that adds structural integrity to the thin, musical shells. Like all USA-made Gretsch drums, shell interiors are finished with classic Gretsch Silver Sealer. The bearing edges are an exclusive reverse roundover, which allows greater surface contact with the drumhead. Toms are outfitted with Gretsch's "302" 3.0mm, double flanged steel hoops. The result is tone that is incredibly deep and warm, or "That Great Gretsch Sound." This 4-piece Gretsch Broadkaster Shell Pack in Black Satin Flame wrap has an 18x14 kick drum with mount, 14x14 floor tom, 12x8 tom with mount, and matching 14x5 snare.
