About This Listing

Here is a very lightly used Gretsch Broadkaster! Sizes are 14x20", 8x12", and 14x14". These drums are finished in Satin Copper Mist, which is no longer listed under Gretsch's available finishes page on their site. There are almost no cosmetic markings on these drums - the only notable marks are on the top of the bass drum near the rail consolette, and they are very minor. As an added bonus, these are done up in a classy vintage build out! The Vintage build out features hardware component styles used on 1950s-era Gretsch kits - including tone controls, floor tom leg brackets and legs, a rail consolette, spurs, bass drum T-rods, throw-off, key holder and a Remo Fiberskyn bass drum logo head. There are certainly fewer vintage builds out there than standard, so this could shape up to be quite an uncommon Gretsch some day. Plus, no wait time!

Here is some info from Gretsch on the Broadkaster series: 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 warm. 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 from a heavier gauge steel to stand up to today’s more assertive playing styles. The 302 hoop helps create a more open tone than a die-cast hoop and adds ambient overtones to the overall tonal characteristic.
