The application of advanced drum-making techniques to the 1950s-era three-ply shell has resulted in a modern-day version of a drum that recreates the sonic brilliance and ´´That Great Gretsch Sound” of the original Broadkasters.The Broadkaster shells are made one-by-one using maple/poplar/maple wood (all North American) without reinforcement hoops. 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 Bearing Edge : The all-new Broadkaster shell is hand finished with the reverse roundover bearing edge on the bass drums and toms. Using a Gretsch-exclusive radius, the inside edge of the shell sits higher and rounds off down and away to the shell’s exterior edge. This allows greater surface contact between the bearing edge and drumhead, resulting in added tonal depth and warmth. Broadkaster snare drums are finished with Gretsch’s traditional 30º bearing edge, angled toward the shell´s interior. This proven bearing edge technique produces a wide range of tones while maximizing attack and projection.The Hoops : Broadkaster toms and snare drums are outfitted with Gretsch’s ´´302” 3.0mm, double flanged steel hoops. These hoops are similar to ´´Stick Chopper” hoops used in the 1950s, but are constructed out of a heavier gauge steel to stand up to today’s more assertive playing styles. The 302 hoop helps to produce a more open tone than a die-cast hoop and adds ambient overtones to the overall tonal characteristic. Bass drum hoops are standard-build six-ply maple and include Nitron inlays.The Hardware Packages :Broadkaster kits are available in two different hardware packages, standard and vintage. Standard package includes heavy-duty Gretsch lugs, spurs and straight-sided GTS tom suspension typical to Gretsch USA Custom and Brooklyn kits. The Vintage hardware package features hardware component styles used on 1950s-era Gretsch kits, including drum mufflers, floor tom leg brackets, Rail Consolette tom holder, spurs, bass drum T-rods, throw-off, key holder and Remo® Fiberskyn bass drum logo heads.The Finishes and Appointments :New Broadkasters are available in two Nitron wraps: Antique Pearl and Anniversary Sparkle and two Nitrocellulose satin finishes: Satin Classic Maple and Satin Copper. All drums include a newly stylized and serialized Broadkaster internal shell label and the iconic Gretsch USA brass Round Badge.
