OVERVIEW

Unlock the rhythm in you with essential gear.

Second-rate gear only makes your drumming journey harder. The Pearl Roadshow is not a toy or a hand-me-down. It's a complete drum set package with everything you need to start your rhythmic journey to the big time. Here are some things to look for when buying your first drum kit; see for yourself how Roadshow stacks up:

The cymbals, hi-hat, and snare stands should start with a strong and well-balanced tripod base. Double-braced legs and interlocking tilter adjustments are also vital for keeping all parts of the kit in place under the pressure of performance. Roadshow's included hardware package is second-to-none in its class. All stands are dual-reinforced, height and angle adjustable, and feature double-braced legs to withstand the pounding onslaught of the heavy-hitting drummer.

The snare drum is the voice of the drum set and captures everything from the loudest accents to the softest "ghost" notes. With a matching shell and finish, the Roadshow snare is full of attack and power, yet sensitive enough for drumming at any volume.

The bass drum is the tonal heartbeat of the drum set and should not only set the low-end pulse for the groove, but be a foundation for the rest of the complete drum set-up. The Roadshow kick drum features an extended tension/tuning range for low, chest-thumping bass frequencies, and includes locking, slip-free feet (or ˜spurs'), and secure mounting for toms and accessories.

Roadshow's included cymbal set features a 16" brass crash/ ride and a set of 14" brass/hybrid hats. Perfect for accents and timekeeping until an upgraded multi-cymbal set-up is acquired.

I'm a drum teacher. Currently I'm telling my students to buy this Kit if they don't have one already. I needed a jazz kit in my tool box and I'm convinced I made the best choice out of the competing brands that are making similar sets. Pearl really did it,"All you need in one box".

Notes:
For my personal taste, the 12x18 bass drum sound is great. I don't use the cymbals that come with the kit but, the concept of having a cymbal stand in the bass drum is gold (it's one less stand you have to bring to the gig). It takes less that 10min. to set-up & less than 5min. to take down. I use (2) Evan's "eRing" for the snare drum and the floor tom, that gives me the punchy sound I like. The sound of this kid is good. All the hardware fits nicely in a bag, shells are convenient to handle. Honestly, for the price, its a great buy.

and for the beginner it's an incredible buy.

Comments about Pearl Roadshow 4-Piece Jazz Drum Set:

Bought this set for my 12 year old, as we needed something that left a small(er) footprint than a full size kit (It is not a "kids" set of drums). So far I am very pleased with it. Hardware seems solid. You will need to adjust the snare tone and the cymbals aren't great, but otherwise we are happy.

        Comments about Pearl Roadshow 4-Piece Jazz Drum Set:

        This is a great first kit for a young person to learn on or as an inexpensive solution to having a complete kit as a back up for practice or small venue. I purchased this kit for a permanent set up at our church as an overall small and low volume kit. For the price, complete, it is a great value. There are some shortcuts taken as with the cymbals, a bit "tin" sounding, but good enough for practice and with some muffling on the hi-hats are good enough to get you started. The drum heads are very thin, but to my surprise tuned up nicely giving the toms a nice sound and I was able to tune out bad overtones. That and a bit of moon gel and they sound quite good! Kick drum is a nice size and with some dampening makes for a nice, "low volume" kick. The snare drum is really a joy to play...a nice snappy, but full, sounding snare for 13". A bit of moon gel on that and it cleared up any bad overtones as well. The hardware is very nice given the price, solid and will hold up to a young player. I expected a lower quality in the hardware, but this is very well done. Decent kick pedal. Shell construction is poplar with a wrapped finish on it. Metal hoops on the kick. No major flaws on the kit I received, overall good shells for the price and the Bronze is a nice color. If you are looking to really hammer on this kit, I would expect it not to hold up in the long haul. Everything is adequate for a beginner, a practice kit, or a permanent set up at a place that needs a little kit for some percussion (i.e my church). I would not consider this a kit for taking on the road or launching your career at paid gigs. That's not the purpose of this kit. But it is a great kit for starting out and learning the fundamentals and for basic playing. The overall sound is quite good, minus the quality of the cymbals. A slight upgrade to the cymbals and I'll be happy to perform on this. I was happy how quickly I could get the sound under control.

          I purchased this kit last summer to play smaller clubs-I am extremely happy with it. A beginner could learn on this as well. The bronze finish is cool looking too. Now, the stock heads and cymbals aren't that great-but use your own cymbals and a head upgrade and go play gigs. The hi-hat isn't total pro quality, but will hold up if you don't go whompin' on it. Overall, it's a great value for the price.

          Great kit for the price! It was my first kit, and I still have it around for small gigs and jazz clubs. After a around-kit head replacement, the kit sounded phenomenal! The hardware is good for what you get, but the cymbals are utter trash and you should replace them ASAP.

          On a side note, I'm a 6'0 man and I fit comfortably behind the kit. Definitely a kit fit for anyone - novice to experienced.

              I bought this kit to fit in a small space and to do some practicing with it. I wasn't expecting much but once I had it set up and tuned I was impressed. All of the hardware is solid, to be honest I haven't seen hardware on a kit like this for sometime. None of that cheap metal or plastic stuff that you find on some other kits that do nothing more then break as soon as you tighten them. In my opinion this kit is perfect for jazz, drum and base, or even funk. Not to sure if its suited for rock, I did try a few simple rock grooves but it didn't sound right. The only thing I don't use are the symbols because they are nothing more than trash can lids. However if your looking for a kit that isn't gonna break the wallet and your a jazz drummer like myself, then yes I would recommend this kit.

              Comments about Pearl Roadshow 4-Piece Jazz Drum Set:

              got the bronze metallic. liked that the hardware seemed like older kits, especially the bass drum. floor tom has gouge in bearing edge, batter side with some filler poorly applied. not MF fault. Not sure if it effects sound really. what effects sound are the cymbals and heads. so realisticly I planned on replacing heads and cymbals later on. just trying to play again after selling my kits a while back. this is good for that and I feel like I got what I paid for. no hate at all, it is just 3 stars. my 10 yo daughter thinks it is great and comes home from school every day begging to play. comes with stick bag and two pairs of sticks too. happy with my purchase and don't mind sanding all the bearing edges later when I replace the heads because I like this kit. pearl are great drums.

              It's like this. The high hat stand, and symbols are junk. I had to order another high hat stand because MF gave me a hard time about the stand be broke out of the box. One cheap bit of plastic, and the stand did not work out of the box. Damage on shipping. And of course the symbols are trash can lids, but the best sounding ones I have heard. But still, not worth using. I would give this kit 4 stars if the sellers were not so unprofessional with someone who has done business for 20 years. MF you are gonna lose a lot of business if you don't get your act together!

                    Comments about Pearl Roadshow 4-Piece Jazz Drum Set:

                    I bought this for my 3 year old who was showing great interest in my kit so she can reach everything. I own pro gear and, for the price point, am seriously impressed with the quality of the kit and the convenience of having everything, including sticks, in 1 box. Such as basic and unusual idea.

                    I would even use it on my smaller cabaret/jazz gigs
