why USA over Broadcaster ?just got'em on Wednesday after ordering them in late July 2019.
USA Custom Red Glass glitter,satin Dakota Red with chrome inlay hoops,20/12/14/5.5 8 lug w/Microsensitive.
Here they are on their debut test drive last night...I have 3 more gigs this weekend so I'll have a pretty good idea how they perform!

indeed the 20" is astonishing! I had it tuned low for the 1st 2 gigs I did with the kit...UNREAL...it cut thru with a big fat low end.Awesome! I also have the same red kit in RB...that 20 booms!
Never been a Gretsch guy, but those babies are gorgeous!! Enjoy!!indeed the 20" is astonishing! I had it tuned low for the 1st 2 gigs I did with the kit...UNREAL...it cut thru with a big fat low end.
the snare drum is such a surprise! damn...I had it tuned medium...it sounded full & fit the music perfectly.
the toms were medium to low...again plenty of tone & resonance...responded easily...must be the 302's...
my 2 Sunday gigs were jazzish so I raised the pitch all the way around the kit...BEAUTIFUL!!! everyone digs'em whose heard'em...
very happy with Gretsch! View attachment 424331
