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
The Broadkaster 4-piece Shell Pack sounds just like 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 bring you the vintage tone that made Gretsch drums beloved by drummers worldwide, while also bringing you some modern improvements.
