Gretsch BK-R423 USA Broadkaster 3 Piece Standard Shell Pack - 12x8 , 16x16 , 22x14 

Special order only - Please call for details

Based on the 1950's flagship model, the New Broadkaster represents a rebirth of a Gretsch original - the 3-ply shell.

As mentioned above, the new Broadkaster features a 3-ply maple-poplar-maple shells internally finished with Gretsch classic Silver Sealer. The shells are finished with a reverse roundover bearing edge which, allows greater surface contact with the head, resulting in a fatter, warmer tone.

Like all traditional USA-made kits the Broadkaster comes with classic Gretsch 302 double flanged hoops. These are similar to the original "stick chopper" hoops used in the 1950's however, these are made with heavier gauge steel that control the tone better and also protect your sticks.

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 Fiberskyn bass drum logo heads.

Please note: shell pack only, stand hardware and cymbals are not included.
