Gretsch Broadkaster 20" Classic Jazz Kit 4-Piece Shell Pack - BK-J404-AP - Antique Pearl - Standard Hardware. Re-issue of a classic. Includes a 14" x 20" bass drum, 8"x12" mounted tom, 14"x14" floor tom, and 5.5"x14" 8-lug snare. 

The Shell 
Today’s 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 shell is hand finished with the reverse roundover bearing edge on the bass drums and toms. 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. 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 
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.

The Hardware 
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.
