GRETSCH USA BROADCASTER 4 PIECE DRUM KIT, BURNT ORANGE SATIN, GUNMETAL GREY HARDWARE, (PRE-LOVED)
Here we have a very special set. This is a Gretsch Broadcaster circa 1998 - 2003, the spec of the bass drum spurs and colour would suggest this kit comes from the later half of the production years. The Broadcaster was re-introduced in 1998 after a time away, there was a limited amount of sizes and colours offered, many of you may remember the Harvey Mason signature version of the kit (offered in Harvey's preferred sizes) All the Broadcasters from this time period came with the Gunmetal Grey Hardware, this one is finished in Burnt Amber Satin which was made in quite limited numbers.
The kit also has the more recent Gretsch bass drum spurs, the earlier kits came with the Gull Wing bass drum spurs which proved to be a little flimsy so the fact this kit has the newer spurs on spec is a definite advantage.
The Broadcaster has the famous Jasper Shells, finished inside with Gretsch's silver sealer, the hoops are Diecast and the kit is mounted on RIMS mounts with standard Gretsch Brackets.
This kit sounds absolutely fantastic, suited to a massive range of styles, a great live or studio set, bags of tone and incredible definition. Condition wise the kit is 9/10, it has predominantly resided in a studio for much of its life, with little live work.
