The Gretsch Broadkaster Is Back!

The classic look and sound of Gretsch Drums is back with the Gretsch Broadkaster 4-piece Shell Pack. If you want that warm, wide, and open sound of vintage drums, then you're sure to appreciate this updated reissue of the sought-after and much-loved Broadkaster Series. Ask any drummer at Sweetwater and they'll confirm that this shell pack is an exceptional choice for both recording and performing. Its 3-ply maple/poplar/maple shells give you an extremely musical and responsive drum set. Discover the revered sound of Gretsch drums with the Gretsch Broadkaster 4-piece Shell Pack.

Gretsch Broadkaster 4-piece Shell Pack at a Glance:
  • Exceptional tone and attack from 30-degree bearing edges
  • Gretsch drums - a slice of American music history
  • You'll find vintage tone and classic Gretsch quality in the Broadkaster series
Exceptional tone and attack from 30-degree bearing edges

The Broadkaster 4-piece Shell Pack delivers the sound you'd expect from a classic Gretsch kit, thanks to 30-degree bearing edges (where the hoop meets the shell). At 30-degrees, the surface area between the hoop and shell is maximized, which optimizes the transfer of vibration. That gives Gretsch drums a fast response, warm tone, and punchy impact. You'll hear it in every drum in the Broadkaster 4-piece Shell Pack.

Gretsch drums - a slice of American music history

Gretsch has been making drums in the USA since 1883. Alongside drums, the company's banjos, mandolins, ukuleles, and guitars have contributed to the very roots of American music. So when you play your Gretsch Broadkaster 4-piece Shell Pack, you're playing more than a drum kit - you're playing a slice of American music history.

You'll find vintage tone and classic Gretsch quality in the Broadkaster series

Gretsch re-introduced the Broadkaster series of drums to deliver the vintage tone (and looks) that made Gretsch drums beloved by drummers worldwide, while also bringing you modern improvements. For example, the Broadkaster 4-piece Shell Pack uses Gretsch's 302 hoops, which are inspired by the company's hoops of the early 1950s. These 3mm double-flanged hoops have a more open tone than Gretsch die-cast hoops and are thicker and more rounded than vintage hoops, so they won't shred your sticks as quickly.

Gretsch Broadkaster 4-piece Shell Pack Features:
  • Vintage-style tone and visuals
  • 4-piece shell pack with:
    • 14" snare drum
    • 12" rack tom
    • 16" floor tom
    • 22" bass drum
  • 3-ply maple/poplar shells deliver warm, punchy vintage tone
  • 30-degree bearing edges for optimized tonal girth and attack
  • Gretsch 302 hoop, a style used by Gretsch until the mid 1950s
  • High-quality vintage-style Gretsch hardware
  • Handcrafted in Gretsch's Ridgewood, South Carolina, factory
Get vintage-style tone and visuals with the Gretsch Broadkaster Series!
