Get That "Great Gretsch Sound" With The Gretsch Broadkaster 14" X 5" Snare Drum In Silver Mist Gloss
Gretsch Broadkaster drums combine the classic Gretsch sound with a huge array of size, color, and hardware combinations.
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, with the help of advanced drum-making techniques, the Broadkaster has returned, bringing with it all of the 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 the drum head. The result is tone that is incredibly deep and warm.
Over 75 sizes are available to be combined with over 60 gloss lacquer, satin stain, or wrapped finish options. In addition, Gretsch Broadkaster drums can be outfitted with modern hardware appointments or traditional hardware designs that are found on Gretsch's timeless vintage instruments.
