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

18x14, 12x8, 14x14

From the 1920s through the 1950s, 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 warmth.
