New and in stock! This is a wonderful Gretsch Broadkaster drum set in our exclusive Mardi Gras wrap. Mardi Gras is a faithful reproduction of the finish used by some US manufacturers in the 50s ands 60s. Black background with multi-colored “confetti-like” pattern. This set is 8x12, 14x14, 14x20, and 5.5x14 with a lightning throw-off. Classic Gretsch sound and great progressive jazz sizes! This drum set includes a rim mount for the 8x12" tom, seen in the last photo. We've removed it for the rest of our photos to show of more of the Mardi Gras finish!

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, USA, with the help of advanced drum-making techniques, the Broadkaster has returned, bringing with it all of 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 drumhead. The result is tone that is incredibly deep and warm.
