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 become, "That Great Gretsch Sound."

This kit is a very special one off custom order inspired by Steve Ferrone's touring kit he used with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Gretsch don't offer this as a standard finish but we were able to secure this one off. There will only be 1 kit in this finish so get in touch to secure it now!

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 drum head.

The result is tone that is incredibly deep and warm.

Broadkaster toms and snare drums are outfitted with Gretsch's "302" 3mm 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.
